We have a lot of his stuff we keep meaning to take to the thrift store, but we just keep putting it off. Things are piling up. I have stuff of his that need to go in the attic too. Part of it is having a hard time letting go, but another is finding the time. There's so much I mean to do, but I'm just so busy anymore.
The kid is getting really mobile now. He still can't sit on his own, but he is a master of rolling both ways. When he wakes up in his pack'n'play now, the first thing he does is roll over onto his belly, rotate towards his toys, and use his legs to push against the sideboard to get to them. It's awesome, and it's scary... I have some preparing to do before he gets really mobile! But I have a feeling it won't be long now. Yikes.
I'm trying my hand at making homemade baby purees. I think it might be cheaper, and probably healthier too. We've tried jarred purees so far but I made some homemade tonight... so I guess I'll find out how that goes tomorrow. I made apples and carrots to start, since I know he normally likes those.
He's been going through a "cling to mommy" phase. He won't go down for a nap unless he falls asleep in my arms, or on the bed snuggled up next to me. Most of the time I can move him from me to the pack'n'play with no issues, but often enough he wakes up, then screams when he realizes what I'm doing. Sometimes I don't mind, I'll just cuddle him and watch TV for an hour. Sometimes though, it's really hard because I have dishes that need done, a floor that needs swept/mopped, I need to jog, I need to prepare dinner, etc... and I only have two arms. I keep hoping that it's a passing phase, but it's been almost a month now. It's been a lot worse this past two weeks. And this past week, he's been waking up at 5am to either cuddle or eat... he normally goes to bed at midnight and wakes up at 8-9am. So it's been rough.
And, he's up from his nap! I better go get a bottle ready.
