A couple of nights ago, Brandon was rather loud – he was doing both crying and ‘talking’ at the same time and that didn’t impress Arianna one bit and what was her response to that?
“Such a noisy little man!” LOL I couldn’t keep a straight face even if I wanted to!!
Christmas marked Brandon turning 2 months old. Before you say anything – Yes, already! It’s kind of hard to believe it but I don’t think he can be called a newborn anymore. Lord know he’s wearing crawler nappies now. On Thursday, 30/12/2011, we went to get his vaccinations and poor little thing got 1 jab in each thigh and an oral dose as well. I thought he dealt with it well since I didn’t have to feed after all. He cried a bit when doc jabbed him but that was it. O, his other reaction to the jabs was giving doc and myself a mild poo explosion, a small one but a pooey one nonetheless. It was really embarassing!
I asked for him to be weighed and at 2m 5d, he is 6.33kg. I can’t remember comparing him with the girls but he is on the 90 percentile curve so, he’s growing on the right track. Although still a wee bit yellow from the breastmilk jaundice, doc reckons he’s a lot better. But should it continue for the next few weeks, we’ll have to get him checked out again. I’m really hoping he gets over this soon, I’d hate for him to get pricked again. Poor bubba!
In other areas, I think he’s doing fine too. Some nights he is good to me by sleeping in longer, other nights he hates me and wakes up several times a night for feeds. The girls are also dealing with him better. They pull out his dummy so that they can give it to me, which leaves him crying coz that action wakes him up in mid-sleep!! Some days you just can’t get good help around. lol KR tries to jam it back in most times when he doesn’t want it, so you can’t say that she isn’t helping out – she TRIES.
I can’t say for sure that things will ever be organised in this house again, but one things for sure….no 2 days are alike and funnily, I can actually accept that these days. I’m learning to be more lenient and more accepting in situations that can’t be help. It’s not easy since I like to ensure things go my way but it’s getting easier.
