Friday Night Leftovers - New Baby Edition

* Baby is a month old on Monday! I can't believe it. * All the kid does is eat. Seriously. He ate six oz in the night last night. I'm concerned about overfeeding, but he is starving! * He smiled at me today. Plus a half smile for sister. * I am still having a LOT of pain where I had the two spinal/epidurals for the C section. That hurts worse than the C section incision. * He is wearing size 1 diapers and size 0-3 months cloths. He sure went through the newborn clothes quickly! His sister was in newborn clothes for 5 months. * He needs very little head support. And he can roll on his side easily. The kid is strong. Very strong. * Been referring to him as "Benny". * He is a screamer. I think he has a little touch of colic. He screams 15-20 min around 7:30 pm each night. If he is hungry then he screams until the food is placed in his mouth. He also has bad gas. Smelly gas. * Can't believe I'm doing this again. Loving it! *

12 years! Wow. Despite the hectic time, we are going to steal away for martinis and lunch.

How are we doing? We are doing okay. Victoria is doing well with her new brother. She tries to touch him constantly. One day she put her squeeze applesauce package in his mouth, and then put a doll bottle in his mouth which he sucked away happily on, expecting milk. She desperately wants to play with him. When he screams (and he is a screamer), she laughs this sinister laugh. I think she is just so excited that he is doing something. Her teacher reports that she talks about him constantly. The best: Victoria: "... has a brother and Mary has two sisters. I have a brother".
