It’s crazy that it’s already been three weeks. Or maybe it’s crazy that it’s only been three weeks? Who knows…
Either way, we’re settling into our new life as a family of 4. Seriously, I know I’ve said this before, but we would be lost without my mother in law. She’s been absolutely invaluable in helping care for Charlie during the transition… And just provide all around help and support at home. Not to mention all the help from the other grandparents (picking C up from school, bringing dinners, picking up things from the store, etc). We are very lucky.
Anyway, little man is definitely way more alert this week! He’s been having more awake times and seems to be way more aware during those awake times.
He also seems to be entertained by his sister… Or comforted or something. Despite the fact that she appears to be all over him and shoving paci’s in his mouth or just “loving him too hard”… He seems to be at peace with her… Until he isn’t! Haha I mean, let’s be honest, there are only so many 26 lb hugs an infant can take before he’s had enough.
Henry had 4 or 5 nights in a row of sleeping 5-6 hour spans followed by 2-3.5 hour spans; however, last night was only 4 hours. So, we’ll see what happens tonight.
He is still eating like a little monster and getting G some good naps in during the day.
He also seems so dang strong. He pushes off on me with his legs and hangs out in a standing position. He also sits upright in my arms with his head totally self-supported. He’s a tough cookie.
Other than that, it’s business as usual. Lots of eating, peeing, pooping, spitting up… Ya know, the fun stuff!
