Milestones

  • Now the Ard Ri (baby Fionn) is umming and ahhhing his way during the day. Very funny is that he makes a lot of sounds while breastfeeding. Like he's drinking a pint of Guinness....
  • We can now put him in the car seat to go out without him crying himself hoarse.. This is huge!
  • He's a lot stronger and is breaking free of the swaddle.. Duct tape is tempting to use especially as he still hits himself in the head by mistake and then looks at you like you're to blame...
  • He outgrew the newborn diapers week 2 at home, now looks like outgrowing the stage 1-2 pampers week 3. That or they are shrinking...
  • He's getting better at my morning wee wake up. He no longer looks at me like he's going to take a bat to me if he could for singing - Good Morning Good Morning - isn't it great to stay up late... (is tune stuck in your head yet?)
  • He likes the sling in morning - especially if I sing and dance to the hippy hippy shake while he's in it. - Can't sit still, da na na na na nah, what a thrill now, da na na na nah, Hippy Hippy Shake.. Just looked up lyrics, mine are not in song.. Well that's the good thing about a 3 week old critic, he's not fussy...
  • Sometimes the Binky (pacifier) actually stays in his mouth in the crib....
  • Diaper changes are no longer screaming wee episodes. I blow at him telling him and the big bad wolf went whoosh and he's so surprised he just lays there chilling
  • His umbilical cord fell off. We don't know where. Could be Walmart - I have images of a toddler picking it up thinking its candy...
  • He went to Walmart and also we've been out to three diners and he slept through all three!
  • We go for his first bath at weekend - like most other things I expect a wee crying and fussing till gets used to it
  • Mammy can now take a bath in theory since my c-section. When and how is another matter...

What a hoot! My dh got all grossed out when I insisted we save the umbilical cord stump thing. I'll sting it together with all the baby teeth as they fall off...make a nice necklace or somthing...just kidding.
