Easton has this habit of starting to poop in the middle of his bottles. Being the kind of baby that can only do one thing at a time..he stops eating..and finishes pooping. Sometimes I can get him to finish the bottle, but most of the time not. So..we change the diaper. His other "bad" habit..is to act like he's done pooping, then he pulls a "sike! you thought I was done huh?" on me. He finishes while I'm changing him. TMI..I know, such is the glamorous life of a SAHM. Anyhoo, I change him, put him down for his nap and go wash my hands. I go about fixing my lunch and sit down in front of our laptop and tv to enjoy a little time to myself. But I keep smelling poop. I look on my shirt, look everywhere,,no poop. I finish my lunch and get a couple snackwell cookies and some milk. Dunking the cookie, I still smell poop. I finish the first cookie and FINALLY notice a dark smudge on the knuckle of my dunking hand. Yep..you guessed it. I had poop on the cookie dunking knuckle. The remaining cookies don't look so good anymore. And if you knew me..you would know I rarely leave a cookie behind. So it turns out that putting your kids poop on the back of the hand that you eat with, is a good appetite suppressant. There you go..Julie's diet tip of the day.
This is the most recent move he does when I lay him down for his nap. He peeks. I watch on the monitor, and he pulls down the bumper pad and peeks out, like, "is she really gone?? wow..look at all my toys down there on the floor, sure wish I was playin'". It is adorable. He started pulling the bumper pad completely off first..I have ordered one of those breathable bumpers, that won't come off. I just thought this was to cute not to take a picture!!
Six months ago yesterday, Jason and I were blessed with a amazingly beautiful baby boy. It is hard to believe it's really been six months! Easton, you amaze us every day with your faces and sounds that you have perfected. Here are some things you spend your days doing..
*standing..like..all day. You literally will not bend your knees to sit down unless forced!
*you can sit up on your own though! You will topple over at some point, but you are basically doing it all by yourself
*you aren't quite crawling, but are soo close!
*you still don't sleep through the night..but feeding twice is better than every two hours!!
*you are loving the baby food! Anything mommy puts in your mouth, you eat!
*you are finally up to taking 4-6 oz of formula! Ya-hoo!
*you love to blow "bubbles", really it's just spitting all over the place, but it's so cute!
*you love to screech! That's how you communicate these days..hilarious!
*daddy says you're a momma's boy..:-)
Those are just some of the lovely and amazing things that you do now days. Mommy and Daddy love you SO much and can't imagine what we ever did with out you..umm..besides sleep..but other than that...you are our missing link, baby boy!
