I can’t believe C has been a part of our family for almost for months now. Yet, it also seems like he’s been here forever. He’s a generally happy baby, but when he’s not happy he is really Not. Happy.
When he’s getting ready to really cry, the corners of his mouth turn down and his chin waggles. It is exactly like in a cartoon, except it is for real. That’s really the only time that H doesn’t like having a baby brother.
C is an expert at rolling over, just like his brother. And just like his brother, he seems to forget that he can roll both ways. So if he is tired of being on his tummy, he really just needs to remember he can roll himself onto his back.
We’re still co-sleeping. It’s working out wonderfully. And, unlike H, I think it is going to last awhile beyond the four month mark. C is a very attached baby. He loves to be held by Mama. He’s getting used to the sling, and I can’t wait to use it more often (right now we are in the middle of a very large heatwave and wearing a silk brocade sling in 105 degree weather is so not appealing).
He has a very sweaty head.
He will try to nurse everything. Last night I gave him a kiss and he tried to nurse my mouth- weird!
He is a very touchy baby. He likes to caress me while he nurses and pets my cheek when we talk.
He goes from happy to crying like a banshee in a fraction of a second.
And on a crafting note- this was a soaker I made about a month before he was born. I dyed the fiber (cormo/kid mohair from Juniper Moon Farms), spun up a heavy worsted yarn, and knit it up using my own soaker pattern. Aside from needing another lanolin filled bath it is great.
