Friday Rainbow Baby Blog: September 16
The last time I checked in, we were headed to a wedding. Traveling is still rough. We missed most every nap that whole weekend, which made for one fussy baby...understandably. For the wedding, he was quiet, until the bride walked down the aisle, and then we decided to get noisy, so we spent the rest of the wedding out in the lobby area with a few other moms and their noisy kids. It was an evening wedding, with a lovely reception afterwards, but that meant more of our sleep routine muddled up. I got five minutes at the reception before he had a complete meltdown, so we quickly headed to where we were staying to put him down for the night. Our drive home was still rough, but I attributed everything to the lack of sleep and routine.
The day after we got home, I was feeling around in his mouth to check on the status of any teeth, and two little front teeth were already poking through! I felt horrible not having noticed during the busy weekend. No wonder he was fussy. He's such a big boy already.
Solids have been interesting as of late. He's gotten really stubborn about eating. As in, not really wanting to for the most part. He'll take a spoonful of something he liked at one point (like sweet potatoes or carrots), get a terribly disgusted look on his face and refuse to eat more...turning his head and shaking his arms. I don't force food on him, and I'm sure there's some logical learning reason for his being difficult. I'm reading Super Baby Food, which takes you month by month, and explains that sometimes the frustrating points are them learning how to feed themselves, or understanding how this new found element fits into their lives. So I'm chalking it all up to that.
Anyway, I've rambled a bit tonight. I'll leave you with a pic of Simon in the tub :)
