Back to Blogging and a buzz

I was gone from the blogging world for a few weeks, but I'm back. I'll post some pictures really soon.

My son has really discovered his mouth and enjoys blowing spit bubbles at his mobile bears. Yesterday I even saw him buzz his lips. Then I spent the rest of the day buzzing my lips at him to try and get him to do it again. I've converted from a mostly sane rational adult to a doting parent who makes strange faces to get a smile, talks in gibberish and gets super ticked at stupid speed demons people on the highway -- Don't they know my BABY is in the car!

I'd love to see you next week

My adorable little son and I are coming to Utah for a visit next week. His grandparents have dibs on most of his time, but I'd love to have a little reunion with whoever is in Utah. It will most likely be either Tuesday, Wednesday or Friday of next week at my parents home in Mendon. Stay tuned for more details to come. And, let me know if you are in the area and which day might be best.

Hip hoorah! Hip hooray! Pedrito slept in HIS bed today!

Prayers are answered! Our little guy who has refused to sleep in his own bed for more than 20 minutes or so finally slept in his bassinet for about three hours in between feedings last night and during naps today.

We've started to incorporate some methods of routine from Babywise with methods from The Happiest Baby on the Block. I was skeptical at first having been "warned" about Babywise. But, I like the idea of building a relationship based on healthy interaction (with a mom who isn't completely exhausted) and not just constant, close proximity.

It is amazing how much better sleep I got without all the cute little baby noises in my ear. And, it's been so fun playing with my baby now that I'm less of a zombie.

Life is good.

Has anyone ever . . .

. . . thought their infant son has an old man face sometimes?

. . . laughed a little when your baby pulls away and milk squirts in their face?

. . . gone to bed and realized you ate nothing but animal crackers, cookies and a bowl of cereal all day?

. . . thought it an accomplishment if you can shower and get dressed before 3 or 4 p.m. - 1:30 on a really good day?
