2 Mommies and a Baby
Monday, March 12, 2007
Things have been much quieter in our household since we started feeding the poor starving kid the appropriate amount of food.
So what do we do?
We go and screw him all up with over-stimulation and awake-time this weekend so he was a Mr. Crankypants by weekend’s end!
On Saturday, Lois’ old (old as in “former” not as in “old”) softball team threw Andrew a little baby shower. It was a blast!
Everyone went crazy with the presents and our little guy is going to be set with baby athletic wear! (I promise to post some pics)
It started at 4 pm and we got home at around 1 a.m. (12:00 pm before we changed the clocks).
The little guy was passed around, walked into other rooms when we got too rowdy, and fed and changed by everyone else. We had so many babysitters in the room, Lois and I could have gone out to dinner and a movie - that is if we weren’t having so much fun where we were.
We know the poor guy was probably overwhelmed and overstimulated, but he was WONDERFUL! He slept here and there, ate well, didn’t cry much and was the hit of the party!
As we drove home, we knew we kept him out too long and there was too much going on, but he did so well!!! We are not stay-at-home people too often and we were glad that he seems to be okay (sometimes) when we take him places.
He does scream bloody murder when we put him in the car seat, but usually is quiet (asleep) about 2 minutes after the car starts moving.
We spent most of Sunday at home so he, and his mommies, could have down time. Of course, he slept most of the day, only waking up to eat 3-4 ounces at a time before going back to sleep for 2-3 hours.
Last night, he was sleeping during his awake time, so he made our sleep time his awake time last night. Serves us right!
