My son’s 4th and 5th teeth are coming in, aka his top two teeth. And breastfeeding has become a whole new adventure in pain. He’s learning to eat solid foods, to chew things up properly. Mommy has to keep reminding him that her nipples are not to be gnawed on. Can I just say, “Ouch!”
He’s really starting to enjoy new foods. Yesterday he tried a few pieces of cooked mushrooms and loved them. And he will eat as many mashed potatoes as you can give him. He seems love eating anything that we’re eating. He stares at my toast and eggs each morning until I give him some of my toast. And he’s feeding himself cheerios, although only about half of them make it to his mouth.
He can spin around on the floor – he especially does this when he’s watching the cats and trying to follow what they’re doing. And he’s rocking back and forth on his hands and knees. He still moves backwards when he does that, but he’s holding steady a bit more than he used to and actually staying up on all fours longer. Baby boy also loves to stand in between my knees while I sit on the couch. Did I mention that his armpits rest on TOP of my knees? He’s so tall already. *sob*
The boy is still a little fussy at times, and he’s been occasionally grabbing at his ears. Just a few times over the last few days. Of course, I noticed it on Saturday. Of a three day weekend. Gah. I don’t know if it’s from the teething or if he might have an ear infection. I wish there was a way to tell. He tends to run a bit of a fever when he’s teething, so it’s tough. Here’s hoping I can get into the doctor this week.
Three days left at the office. I still need to go through my files and pack up. Oh, and bring 7 years worth of stuff home. Yikes. But after that, it’s just me and my boy. Let the adventures begin!
