Our first month with Liam went by at an alarming rate (so alarmingly fast that I'm writing this post at 6 weeks and two days).
Nicknames: Boo Boo, Boo Boo Bear, Bubba, Booger, Booger Butt, Boogs, Little Man
Things I Could Do Without: We're waiting for you to sleep more than three hours at a time at night. We're ready, Little Man! The inconsolable screaming fits when you're overstimulated or overly tired are torture. The only thing to fix it is sleep, but getting you to actually fall asleep when you're in that state nearly takes an act of God.
Item/Toy We Love The Most: Your swing. It's our go-to to calm you down or get you to sleep when nothing else works. Your SLEEP SHEEP.
Item/Toy You Love The Most: You LOVE your activity play mat. You thrash your arms and kick your legs the whole time. And you could lay there and look at/talk to yourself in the mirror for hours (or untill you got overly tired and have a meltdown). You grabbed-on to one of the hanging toys (this one was the stuffed monkey that has two rings on the bottom) all by yourself (I can't remember if this actually happened last week at five weeks or at four weeks). I can't tell if it was 100% intentional, but you held on to it for a solid five minutes.
Things I’m Loving Most Right Now: I find it so adorable that you vigorously suck on your fist when you wake-up and realize your belly is empty. And when we're getting ready to nurse, you don't root, but you do mimic the suction action with your mouth when you're nowhere near your final destination. You get so excited when it's time to eat! Also, you take a while to fully wake-up from a good nap. I love to scoop you up before you're fully awake and lay on the bed with you snuggling and waking-up on my chest.
You love to pee and poop on your Daddy. I don't know what it is about him, but he's your favorite target.
You LOVE bath time. We warm-up the bathroom with a space heater so it's toasty warm for you. You lay in the tub, and we spray water all over your little body. You look like you're in heaven. You even love having your hair washed.
You LOVE having your head rubbed. You take after your Mommy and Daddy with that.
