Dad's version of babysitting:
I thought that by baby number 3 he'd have a different version of babysitting. Boy was that the wrong assumption!
8 days old:
Yes, he's screaming here!
10 days old:
Caleb's reflux is doing a little better. He's had a bad bellyache for the last two days though. I thought last night was going to be a rough night but he did really well. Of course, this morning he picked up right where he left off last night!
I was able to put him in the snugli today & he actually fell asleep in it. We tried it out a few days ago & he just screamed the whole time he was in it! I hope he likes it as much as the other two did b/c he'll be spending a lot of time in it during the first two weeks I'm at school! I need both hands to write!!
Samantha & Nash still love him to pieces. On Sunday I went to get Nash between classes to go to the bathroom. Brother Ashton (one of the nursery teachers) offered to hold Caleb while I took Nash. Brother Ashton said something about trading. Nash about fell to pieces! He thought I was giving his brother away!! It was pretty cute! At least I know he won't let anyone pick on his little brother!!
The only thing I wish I could get figured out is how to get Caleb to sleep in his bassinet during the night! He'll sleep in it or the crib or his bouncy chair during the day. At night though, he thinks he needs to be in my arms or on my chest! That's what I did for a long time with Samantha, but with school starting soon, I'm going to need my sleep!
Caleb pulls lots of faces in his sleep & it's actually quite entertaining to watch. Samantha really gets a kick out of watching him. He laughs in his sleep too. Right now he laughs like his dad so we'll see if that stays the same or if it goes away as he gets older. We still can't tell what color his eyes are going to be. They are so much darker than either of the other two kids. I think they're going to be green & Trav has said he thinks they'll be brown. Guess we'll have to wait & see but they are definately not blue (at least not right now!).
One last thing, I promise! Last night we were at my mom & dad's house. I was in the bathroom pumping (I can't get him to latch back on since I gave him a bottle to help ease his reflux but I'm still trying). I had just changed Caleb & gave him to my mom to feed. Well I guess while he was eating, he pooped his pants, a lot. So, my mom laid him down to change him (this was only her second time changing him). Samantha of course had to be in on all the action (she can't miss anything!). Suddenly, Samantha comes marching into the bathroom. She stops & puts her hands on her hips & looks at me with a completely disgusted look on her face & says, "Mom! My baby brother just peed all over me!" I had to bite my tongue to keep from laughing. I finally managed to tell her, "Well, that's what they do!" I guess he got my mom, himself, Samantha & his blanket all pretty soaked. I don't think Samantha will be too in his face at changing time anymore!
