MILESTONES: Our Little Monster is ticklish! We noticed it randomly a few weeks ago but he really IS ticklish now. I love the grunting noises he makes when I tickle him, like he's trying to giggle or laugh but just doesn't know how yet. It's a.d.o.r.a.b.l.e! C-man is also no longer loving be swaddled. He outgrew his swaddlers so we've been using regular receiving blankets and he gets so mad if his arms aren't up by his face. Okay, mister, I get it.
WHAT YOU'RE UP TO: I'm a little stir-crazy right now. It's been FRIGID cold (umb, right now it's -4 (-16 with the wind chill) so I haven't been out since Monday very very briefly. Tonight I escaped to Target when hubby got home because I needed a break. I'm trying to plan for hubby's birthday this weekend and get things cleaned and organized around the house. Slowly but surely.
EATING: We're trying to feed every 2 1/2 hours now because of his slower rate of growing we discovered at the pedi's office on Monday. I'm wondering if my supply is low. It's hard to tell. He seems satisfied after he eats, but he also empties me out really fast... So, I'm taking More Milk Plus to try and boost my supply. We'll see.
SLEEPING: Can he get any more inconsistent?! I don't know where my good sleeper went! Have you see him?!
DIAPERING: I discovered his OS Bum Genius now fit him (kinda bulky but not too bad) so we've got a really good daily stash going. I can now go 3-4 days between washing... though I try to go no more than 3 for the stink-factor in his nursery. I need to do add more to my cloth diapering series I planned to do here on the blog. I'll put that on the to-do list.
VISITS/OUTINGS: See above. -16* out. There haven't been any!
MOMMY & DADDY: We've planned a date night for 2/12!! So very excited to be without Little Monster for a while and just spend time with hubby. With a fussy & hard-to-get-to-sleep-suddenly baby, there hasn't been any time even for cuddles before we fall asleep at night - which I really dislike. :[
