Man alive, things are busy here. We have, what seems to be, a needy baby on our hands. I have no time for anything because this boy LOVES to be held. Using the Moby doesn’t even help – Bryson doesn’t like it. If he’s not being held or nursing, he’s fussing to be held or nursed. We think he’s confused his nights and days. He will nap for a couple hours at a time during the day, but at night, once he’s up to eat – he is up. We’ve tried all sorts of things, but nothing seems to work. He’s moving out of our room tonight and into his room because the crib has to be more comfortable (and inviting) than the stupid pack and play (which I despise), right?
Bryson is super cute and very lovey – and we’ll for sure keep him – but he is a lot of work!
Matthew is handling this all well. He’s only acted out towards Bryson two times, so we consider that a good thing. If he hears or sees Bryson, he must kiss him, hold him, and put his binky in and out of his mouth. Matthew is quite the helper and grabs a foot stool to help me wash Bryson’s hair each day. He also uses the foot stool to help me change diapers and entertain Bryson when he’s fussing. Matthew is a fantastic big brother!
Parenting two kids has not been the hard part for me. Parenting a needy baby is the hard part. But like I always say, this is temporary. It will pass – and probably before I even realize it.
But none of this is the point of my post. The point of my post is to extend a huge, overdue thank you to all of you for your wonderful, warm comments recently! I like to respond to each comment, but there are just so many in the last few weeks – so I just want to say thank you to all of you right here – right now!
