Reid has the 2 F's.....At around 7:30pm-10pm he Fusses and Feeds.....During the day he's great...rarely cries...but during these hours he is a fussy wussy! He is storing his tank up I guess....He fusses and eats and roots and toots...and burps...and spits up...and feeds...and fusses and repeats this cycle until 10pm. Then he passes out for 3 hrs. I'm guessing this is his routine for the evening....Now granted I don't mind except for the fact that I have 4 other kids and 1 of those is a high maintenance child. (wonder who??)
For the past 3 days Dude Friend has slept 3 hrs up for feeding....and another 3 hrs...up for feeding and then on and off for a hr etc at night...So my sleep is getting better too...only problem is when I wake up after 3 hrs it feels like 20 mins...ugh! Odd it makes you feel worse not better.
He's also getting that baby acne that Lily got at 3 weeks....NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! I have to admit she looked sooooo horrible during those weeks she had it. I thought it would never go away! She looked like she hurt.....Yesterday I noticed Dude was getting some spots on his forehead and temples...today I noticed some on his cheeks...go away baby acne...I got enough issues!
Lily is getting more active lately! She is pulling the ol "I'm two and hear me roar" I'm not amused let's say. Her voice is way too loud to play in the house and when I tell her she needs to calm her voice and settle down she feels this is the time to increase the volume. I've never had to use time out before and I'm not sure it's working.....ugh! Maybe I'm doing something wrong...it's been years since I've had to discipline a toddler!
I'm thankful Dude is a calm baby at the moment...2 high maintenance kids would be more than I can handle! Please keep up the good work Dude Friend!
_____________________SOMETHING FOR MY FRIENDS______________________
Don't you just ♥ blogs......I've met some of the sweetest girls by
STALKING reading blogs....Take for instance dear Brandy over at Jumping Jack......you remember the girl who sent Reid the cute burp cloth set and onesie w/his initial on it? (see photo)
Well I went to her Etsy Store and had her make a bandana pillowcase dress to match Reid.
Thanks to Lily not letting me get a great shot of her in her dress it's hard to see what it looks like...it's the bandana top ...w/some cow print around the bottom! They looked sooo cute together!
Brandy is soooo stinkin talented. I was amazed to learn she just newly picked up this skill. I thought she had been sewing since she was a little girl...that's how good she is. I'm sooo extremely jealous of her...I want to sew more than straight lines!!!
In visiting back and forth through emails I learned she used to live in my neighborhood....which made me sad she moved b/c
1. Small world 2. I'd love to run over to visit over coffee and let the kids play! (sniff sniff...move back Brandy) :o) Isn't the bloggy world fun??!!
I got sooo excited about her etsy store that I asked her to make Reid one of those ribbon lovey binky blankets....she had a ton of fabric to choose from and even embroidered his name on it. I couldn't have been more thrilled on how it turned out! I def need to get more made for baby gifts for the future baby showers!
Here's the back of the blanket...
