his hand me down clothes
poundage: 9lbs 6oz- born at 8-2 and dropped down to 7-1. so to gain that must in such a little time? that's my porterhouse! he loves to eat!
what porter does: sleep-eat-poop. i'm really trying hard to follow the baby wise method of sleep-eat-play and it has been working somewhat so far except porter sleeps more then he plays. there are worse things right? he still eats every 2 hours so after 30 min of nursing [and trying to keep him awake and get his tummy full], 10 min of helping him fall back asleep, 20 min of trying to get myself asleep- there's not much time for fulfilling my sleep needs. i am so desperately tired but i know it's not always going to be this way. but when i am so tired and landon is so whiny and not sleeping, my patience wears thin. and i come incredibly close to losing it. so i take a walk, cry it out while listening to my music and try to let the vitamin d sink in. and i eat a lot of chocolate- which is why i'm doing the fitness challenge on facebook. he really is such a sweet kid, i love him so much. i really didn't understand how i could love someone as much as i love landon but i do! justin already likes to affectionately call him 'the good one' which is accurate for now but not always.
|this one was new! but on clearance so|
i only really loved him $3 worth
what we're working on: sleep training for sure. eating full meals. staying awake during the day. not being too dependent on his binkie. snuggling mommy. learning to hold his head up. not pooping so much- really, he POOPS so much. landon never pooped that much. granted, i starved him [accidentally] so maybe that's why but still, dude is a pooping machine.
how landon is taking it: he just loves porter so much- so so much. he is constantly all over him; kissing, hugging, licking, touching, poking, putting blankets on him. it's super cute and super annoying but i'd rather he love him then hate him. he does have his meltdowns every once in a
while- he doesn't like taking turns and waiting until i'm done nursing. but for the most part, he's great. i mean, he has his own issues that are not helped by having a baby around [getting him to fall asleep and potty training for example] but i can tell he's so happy to have a brother.
how i'm doing: ehh... i'm feeling quite tubby [why oh why i
|big bro cannot take a hint -|
porter is not interested in playing with him
what we're looking forward to: sleeping through the night or at least in stretches longer then 2 hours, learning to hold his head up, smiles and his baby blessing in march.
