I've been neglecting this little monkey. He probably has fewer pictures of himself than any of my other kids at this age. And I tried to take some pics of him today but I think I am a little out of practice! I need to do better at documenting his crazy fast changes!
This kid is mellow. But a little spoiled. During the day he loves to fall asleep for naps swaddled in a blanket pressed tight to my chest. Somehow- miraculously- at night after feedings he'll fall right back asleep in his crib without being held! so, it's not all that bad. I'm happy to rock him during the day :)
he's getting a little less stingy with his smiles- but still is pretty neutral about life in general!
he's content to hang out in the stroller while I run- and just sit in his carseat while I'm at the gym. I'm one lucky mom.
On a negative note- he's got pretty bad reflux and is the vomiting machine! he has been the world's WORST eater for awhile- acting like he was DYING every time we fed him. He would get all gaggy and act like he was being asphyxiated. He'd cry and eating took FORVER. So- we started him on some zantac and while I'm still COVERED in spit up constantly- he's a happier eater.
four kids has been our easiest transition in some aspects- but harder in others. Evening is the hardest time. We have WAY TOO MANY kids and not enough adults!!
and -cross my fingers- he is such a healthy little champ. we have all had coughs, snotty noses, and all sorts of fun winter colds. Metta coughs and sneezes in his face regularly. I told Kent I need to add a little hand sanitizer his bottle regularly to try and keep him germ free! He got a little congested one day- but was back to normal in less than 24 hours. I'm a little terrified of RSV so I am glad to have such a hearty kiddo.
