It’s been a few weeks since I’ve posted anything here. Not excuses really. Just life getting in the way and letting other things be more important or seem more important.
Baby boy (BB) is doing quite well. He’s quickly approaching 11 lbs at three months. Doesn’t sound like much, but from where he was when he was born it’s incredible. He’s also a lot more interactive. He will smile at as now when we smile at him and will coo and giggle (not sure if that’s the correct term) when we are playing. It seems like each day he takes a step forward. We may not realize it, but he does.
There are a few things that concern us a bit, but we’ve talked to the doctors and they’ve said this is normal. At night time, if he’s spit up, he spends a bunch of time clearing his throat and grunting. Luckily this usually happens in early morning (3:30 or 4:30) and one of us, mostly the wonderful wife, will come upstairs and let him sleep on our chest. He really loves that and it stops him from clearing his throat.
We did go out for a little hike this weekend, which was BB’s first. He slept while we were hiking! Nothing to bad, but enough to get out and stretch the legs and see how he did. Afterwards we had a little picnic and he was awake and looking all around.
We also did take him to Outback for lunch. I was a bit nervous about it, but he once again slept. I’ve been in those restaurants where the parents have their child and they are just screaming their head off and the parents are just ignorning it while the whole restaurant is looking at them. I don’t want to be those parents, but am slowly coming to realize that we’ve got to live our lives too and BB is now a part of that so he needs to be included.
I’m hoping to be a bit more consistent on writing here (this is the third time I’ve said this here by the way!). It feels good to write!
