Drum Roll Please

Well, we’re on day four of the no-dairy diet for Koren and me.  Thus far, we’ve noticed the following observations as a result:

1.  More poopy diapers (mostly…today was an exception)
2.  Less fuss
3.  It is almost a crime to have a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and not be able to chase it down with a glass of milk.

In any case, it looks like we’ll be continuing the dairy embargo, at least for the time being.  Hopefully he’ll grow out of it soon, as most babies do.  Fortunately, he really seems to like the soy formula, which allows me the occasional ability to cheat.  Last night I had ice cream for dessert.

One thing that’s still puzzling me is his daytime sleeping schedule.  He’s still doing good at night, usually going at least one 4-5 hour stretch (did you know that’s considered “sleeping through the night”?  What a croc.) and usually doesn’t wake up for an extended period of time until after 7am, which is nice.  But there are a lot of days when he will Just. Not. Nap.  The longest nap I can get out of him is 30 minutes, maybe twice during the day.  He’s not unhappy – just AWAKE.  And needing to be held every second of the day.  I’m sure that’s not a normal sleep pattern for a 2-month-old.

Then all of a sudden, he’ll have a day like today where he sleeps (or at least rests contentedly, meaning not in my arms) for most of the day – like he’s trying to catch up for the last few days of missed sleep.  What’s up with that?

In other news, Kaelin is really learning to master the computer, thanks to the Nick Jr. game websites. She can open the internet, find the bookmark, and start a game that requires some pretty complex mousing skills, like chasing a moving duck and clicking on it, dragging it to its mommy duck (who is also moving), and releasing it at the right time.  It’s cute to watch her concentrate on it.

Speaking of cute, look what I found this morning:

One Response so far.

About Me

Hi. I'm Amy. I started this website in 2005 as a place to deposit my journal and photos. It has gone through a few incarnations and masquerades as a family site, but since I'm the only one who contributes to it, it's really all about ME, ME, ME.
