Baby Gus is 3 weeks old! Time is FLYING. Can you tell he’s getting bigger?
He’s spending more time awake each day, and we are learning about his little personality. He is a sweet teddy bear, but also has some pretty fierce fussy moments too. He screams when his diaper is changed, does NOT like getting a bath, and has a hard time when he’s not being held by someone. He has the uncanny ability to know the moment I put him down and get up…ever so carefully, and leave him in his bouncer or car seat. This little guy has the senses of a ninja, and the second he realizes I am not next to him, he wakes up and cries with every ounce of his little body. It has made things challenging at times. Karolina needs me too, and I am used to spending my days tending to her 100% (while the boys are at school). Thankfully, I have had help for the past 2 1/2 weeks between Jim, my mom and Jim’s parents. But the last few days I’ve been on my own.
This was the scene during lunch yesterday. I was feeding Karolina and we were doing our play time (and she was charming me with her smile)
With one hand I was spooning up her sweet potatoes, and with the other hand Gus was completely wrapped around my arm, asleep…and clinging to me like a koala bear:
Juggling is truly the best way to describe my daily routine lately!
On another note, this was a big week for Gabe, as he got his first pair of eyeglasses. The styles have come a long way from my old brown faux tortoise shell frames I had when I was his age. He looks quite handsome.
Lookin’ good Gabe!
