2 Months, 3 Weeks, 2 Days

I'm terrible at updating this. 

Things have been very good in the world of Aias; he's definitely keeping both his mommy and daddy busy.  Since I last posted, Aias has made tons of developments.  I'm going to do a few lists here, just because I want to remember these things.

His developments include:
  • He now can deliberately put both his hands in his mouth about 80% of the time
  • He can grab at his toys and bring them to his mouth with both hands
  • He can flip the pages of his plastic book to see the pages underneath
  • He can jingle his rattle
  • He can say "agwa" (we have NO idea what this means, but he says it a lot)
  • He can babble like WHOA... seriously, he's always babbling about SOMETHING
  • He can laugh!  We love this.  Morgan cracks him up by making farting noises
  • He can roll onto either side, and can ALMOST roll over deliberately.  He's about 80% there; his arm is in the way, haha.  It really ticks him off!
He's starting to look like a little person too, instead of just a little gnome.

Here are some things that he loves:
  • His flower toy from Auntie Heidi, Uncle Trevor, and Cousin Sierra
  • His wooden toy from Mommy and Daddy
  • His chicken toy from Mommy and Daddy
  • His V-Tech Laptop from Grampa and Pat
  • His stroller from Grandpa and Grandma Dalman
  • Monsieur's fur (courtesy of Monsier)
  • His bouncer from Aunti Heidi, Uncle Trevor, and Cousin Sierra
  • His Christmas Tree Book from Auntie Rosie and Cousin Dallas
  • Being naked
  • Taking showers and baths
  • Being talked to and sung to
  • Listening to Journey and George Michael and dance music
  • Smelling our food when we put it up to his nose
  • When Auntie Rosie visits
  • Boobs
  • His Bummis
Here are some things that he hates:
  • When I laugh when he's sleeping on me and it scares him
  • The Moby Wrap (it gets too hot)
  • When he can't roll over his arm
  • Sleeping alone
  • When Monsieur licks him TOO much
  • Getting the hiccups
  • When he misses his nap, or when I wait too long to take him out on his walk
  • When I drink Caffeine (so I don't anymore, tragically)
  • Being on his tummy
  • Being too warm
  • When his hat goes over his eyes

2 Months Old Today!!!

Today Aias is 2 months old!

Aias is entering an entirely new state of being. He's no longer just a cute little lump that sleeps/cries/poos/pees/eats. Now he's a moving, flailing little person who does all of those things but also looks at and grabs and holds toys, sucks on his hands, likes to pull at my hair and rub his lips on my face, drools, etc, etc. He's getting there. Lately he seems to have "preferences" as to where he is sitting, how is being handled, etc. I hope he doesn't have an attitude soon =P

One thing that I'm sort of "eh" about is that he apparently now needs to go down to bed earlier than me at night. Up until the last few days, we sort of just existed at whatever time, awake at the same times, asleep at the same times, or with him asleep on my lap. The last few nights he's gotten overtired and just screamed for about 5-10 minutes before I was able to nurse him to sleep. This always happens around 11 or so. It's strange and sad and scary for me to hear him cry, because honestly, he normally doesn't. He fusses at best, I pick him up, and he's all happy. This is like... face turning red, tears flying out, lips turning blue crying he's done the past few nights. He's clearly doing it because he's over tired. Then I nurse him and he falls asleep totally fighting it (the sleep, not the nursing). I guess this means I'll have to do something like, give him a bed time or something. Who knows. I've never been able to schedule myself, never mind another person. I think I'll try putting him to bed at like 9, if he goes he goes, if not whatever. Then at 10 if 9 fails. Scary territory!
