In the womb, he was my wild child. Kicking, flailing, and flipping.
He is my little smile boy! He was even a smiling fetus.
This boy is maintenance. He LOVES attention and loves to be held. He still sleeps in Mommy's bed most of the time because he gets upset being alone in his crib. He will be crying and crying and as soon as he hits my bed, BOOM, he's done crying.
If he is hungry, you MUST feed him immediately. Even though I was sleep deprived to no end, I would crack up laughing when I would pick him up to feed him and he would curl up in a ball and chew on his hand making "num num" noises like a little animal. He did not like breast milk or formula, but loves soy milk. He is okay with rice cereal, but would prefer sweet potatoes or human flesh.
It is no work to get a big smile out of him. There have been many times that milk has gone slobbering all down his chin because he can't get through eating without smiling. Being high maintenance works for him because all he has to do is smile and he gets his way (well, at least with me).
He is Mr. Chatterbox. You can talk to him and he will talk and talk back. Or just smile. Last week he was in my bed flailing around and I picked him and and said "are you my little weirdo boy?" He made a grunting noise in response, so I got my answer!
I've never seen a little baby sleep like him. He makes lots of noises. He smiles in his sleep. He sticks his lower lip out in his sleep like he is going to cry.
He is very tall and strong. He was mad because I was trying to put him to sleep and kicking himself up on me with his strong legs.
Even though he is high maintenance, he's also very sweet. He loves to smile at anyone and he loves cuddles. When is Ever is wailing, he will not cry. I was sitting in the back seat with him and Ever was screaming like a banshee and he just kept looking at me with his lower lip sticking out. It was so adorable!
I love when I am feeding him his night time bottle and I whisper in his little ear and he will turn his head closer to mine for close snuggles.
I love my little boy!
