It’s hard to believe that Little Bear has been with us for almost 2 months now. Just a little over 7 weeks ago, we picked him up from the hospital, and he’s already such a blessing to our family.
Emily is an awesome big sister! She loves to hold him, help feed him, throw away the dirty diapers. She sits and reads books to him, shows him toys, and gives him kisses. She admits that he’s not quite as much fun yet as he will be when he can walk and talk, but she’s so patient.
We got a crib for him a week ago, and he LOVES it!! He went right to sleep the first time we put him in it. He has also slept through the night (7-8 hours) the last 3 nights! YAY!!! I have been so blessed to have Hubby’s help during these first couple months. I do not like being sleep deprived, and it has thrown off our schedules for the last 2 months. It’s been worth it, of course, but thrown off still. Now, we are getting a chance to catch up on some sleep and get back to our daily routines.
He’s more active too, and enjoying his awake time between bottle and bed. He likes to listen to music, and will make noises back to us when we talk to him. He definitely knows us, and our voices.
It’s so fun having a baby in the house! In a couple months we’ll even be able to introduce real food to him. I am excited about that part. I made all of Bug’s baby food and really enjoyed getting to provide that for her. I love to cook, so pureeing some cooked rice, fruits and veggies is not a big deal. I’ll have to share some recipes when we get to that point.
For now, here are a couple pictures of our precious little one!
