So I can hardly believe it has been 2 months since I was in the hospital. I don’t understand what I ever did before I took care of Gregory. He is my entire world. And I love it.

Gregory can officially smile and hold his own head up! Sure he looks like a bobble head sometimes, but he holds it up and balances himself fairly well without any help. We of course hold him in a sitting position so he can work on it. Bean enjoys sitting more than laying most days. I have taken to putting him in his bouncy chair, swing and propping him up with the boppy so he can sit more and be more active with whatever we are doing.
happened a few days ago while we were shopping with Grandma for some strawberry plants. So we were out by the farms and we parked so I could change my stinky monster.
Gregory loves his bath time. 8am, 2pm, 11pm, 3am. Anytime of the day he will take it on and love the feel of the water washing over him. This is mommy time as well, I love talking to him and making noises. Adrien doesn’t bathe Gregory, and that is fine by me. Its a joy to see my little man having such a nice time. The only time he cries might be after a bath while putting on his diaper, and that lasts like 2.5 seconds.
I can handle Gregory crying a bit more before I rush to his side. It still makes me upset to hear him cry or need something and not attend to his need immediately. But I do have to learn that I need me time, Dad can help, and sometimes Gregory needs to cry just a bit. If not to decide if he really needs help (which sometimes he cries and then stops and is perfectly fine), just to get rid of some of the energy he has. Personally, I do not agree with letting your child cry it out and self sooth. So don’t think I leave him for long, that would break my heart. What if he thinks I abandoned him? 🙁
Gregory still wont take a binky or soother. He doesn’t grasp the sucking techinique to hold it in. I’m not complaining too much. It is one less habit I have to break him of later on down the road. And Gregory isn’t really a baby that cries. We waited until Gregory was a week old or so until we first introduced one so that he would understand latching onto me properly and not get confused. Well now he just chooses not to use one at all.
