Tyson

8 weeks yesterday

Vag

About 10 hours from when I started timing contractions

2 month appt is next week

He was going about 6 hours but the last two nights it's only been four and then he's been super restless the rest of the night. Mommy can't take much more.

He has a short attention span. I can usually get dinner started while he's in his bouncer. I consider myself very lucky if he'll take a 45 minute nap in the swing which he likes.

My dog still scares me sometimes when she is around him. She's just so big and clumsy it makes me nervous. Ty is never left alone around her though unless he is out of reach - in his bouncer on the counter or in his crib.

Pacifier - Yes

He's finally starting to smile! It's just amazing! So yes I melt.

Dad tries to help. They have "daddy time" in the evenings when he gets home and he helps more on the weekends when he's home.

How about a survey to get to know about you and LO's:

What is you LO name? Nathan Christopher

How old today are they? 12 weeks

C-section or VBirth? Vaginal--with no drugs and NOT by choice!!

How long was labor all together? From water breaking to delivery it was 4 hours--a total whirwind!!

If applies- How much did Lo weigh at 1 month apt? 2 month? 1month:8lbs5oz 2month:10lbs8oz

How long does LO sleep at night before waking? Generally he'll go down around 8-9pm, I'll wake him before we go to bed, around 10-11 to eat, and then he'll sleep until about 4ish, so about 5 hours total.

Formula fed or BF? Exclusively BF since birth, which I'm proud of because I tried with DD and had SO much milk and she had to switch to formula at 3 months so I'm happy he likes his Mama's milk!!

Does LO like swing or bouncer or be carried best? He generally likes to be carried, he's a cuddly boy, but he will take naps in his swing (which is also his bouncy seat) in the morning and sometimes he's good there during the day too if he's in a good mood. He also loves the front carrier, he likes to be snuggly.

Any scary situations happen? Thankfully no, aside from birth--his cord was wrapped around his neck twice and he didn't cry for the first couple of minutes. It took me that long to realize he wasn't crying because I was recovering from the shock of delivering without my epi!! He turned out fine though!

Giving LO pacifier or no? Yup. He's not a HUGE fan of it, it took him awhile to get the hang of it, but he'll take it. He tends to let it drop too often though and I hate constantly sticking it back in! He's discovering his thumb lately too...not sure how i feel about that....

Has LO smiled yet? If so, did you just melt? Yes he smiles ALL the time!! So different than his sister was--she took forever to smile, she was about 10 or 12 weeks and she was stingy with them!! He is the happiest, most smiley baby I've ever seen!!

Does daddy help out a lot, a little, or none with diapers, sleeping, feeding? Daddy is AMAZING! I'm a SAHM now and DH works, but he takes both kids as soon as he gets home. We trade off every other diaper change, we take turns giving baths, he'll carry DS around in the front carrier if he's fussy and we're doing things, he'll carry him in the carrier when we go grocery shopping,a nd for feeding he takes the overnight feedings with a bottle, and usually at least one more on the weekends. He's wonderful, and was with DD too. I'm a lucky girl!
