Big Milestones

So it was my BFF's b-day celebration Saturday night and that means Jack's first overnight at Grammy's house. Dropping him off was harder than I thought. It made me sad... another milestone that means the time is flying by and he is getting so big. He smiles at me now but not on command and not all the time. he is starting to gain more head control but still not a ton. He will be 11 weeks old on Thursday. OMG where has the time gone??

He has a cold with a sad little cough now. So I was a bit nervous to leave him even though he is back to acting like himself. I was the most sad or nervous that he would get all bottle feedings of BM and it was like 5 feedings...where he only ever gets one bottle a day. He did end up having a great time but he didn't take the last two feeding fully and I know it is because he missed the breast feedings.

In the end he had a good time and we did too. It was a very needed night out and full night's sleep. Today the big milestone was his first day napping in his crib. He slept so well and I got so much done!!

If one thing has surprised me the most by the things people (family and friends) have said or felt it would be about breast feeding.

I have found that it makes most people uncomfortable. That surprises me. Even my husband is (against it) uncomfortable with it in public. Everyone thinks it's great in the privacy of my home but when it comes to visiting people or going out in public that's poo pooed.

Back in the day this is how everyone fed their babies. If they didn't breast feed their baby starved. This is what our bodies are made specifically for.

When did this become so taboo???

Update (MAC)

THANK YOU MAC for the response on the Nosefrida snot sucker nasal aspirator. I ordered it with 2 day shipping so stay posted on how it works for us. I have high hopes. I was using the bulb syringe but it doesn't work and takes a long time to get stuff out. HE HATES IT.

We are still sick and exhausted over here. But I swear in the midst of all the yuck he has changed so much. He sucked his thumb yesterday for the first time and has continued to do it today. He is HUGE to me. He looks like he wants to start talking so bad. I want him to start interacting so I can get to see that little personality shine... if he is anything like daddy he will be one funny little guy.

I have a friend who is going on month 8 of trying and is super discouraged that it isn't happening. I can relate to everything she is saying and I am trying to be there for her as much as possible. It brakes my heart to see her sad. I know how prayers can work so can we all rally and Please send prayers for her baby to come to her. xoxo

Bookclub, Baby and Boogers

Alright this post will probably be so super random but I have mush for a brain due to lack of sleep.

I started a book club. I call it "Not your mother's book club" which is ironic because my mom is in it. Hahaha I mainly started it because I miss reading and this will force me back into it. Also socializing doesn't really happen anymore so I invited all my friends. I am planning on us pulling a book from a hat every month after everyone puts in a suggestion. This month and next we are doing Hunger Games Series. We will be making food themed to the book we read the previous month and discussing the book. I am super pumped.

I feel like crap I have a cold and so does baby boy, also he just got his first rounds of shots Friday. :( needless to say I haven't gotten much sleep lately. He is also having trouble getting bubbles and gas out... Does anyone have history using Gripe Water?? Does it work and do you need to check with your Dr before using?

Is there a better way to get his boogies out?? He has a wicked rattle of boogers but they don't suck out well and he HATES it when I do it. Please someone give me the miracle cure LOL.

Well my little guy is 2 months old. I cannot believe it. Time is flying by so fast. I took his 2 month photo with WILMUR his moose. I will put it up later. Gotta go hold the peanut boy.
