Mo easy

Saturday, September 8, 2012

I feel like a traitor telling you this, but I gotta speak the truth.  Mo is an easy baby!  Mo is an even easier baby than Maxie was.  Maybe it is because we've done this before so it isn't shocking, or maybe it is because Mo is such a bright light in an otherwise dark time, or maybe he is just easier.  Don't know.  Mo is an awesome baby!  He is a total natural nurser, which is especially fabulous because I am in no mood to be sitting at the Pump Station with a room full of first time moms talking about latches and pumping.  I am just not emotionally capable of it right now.  He is a good sleeper - meaning, he wakes up every few hours and nurses and goes right back to sleep (usually).  It doesn't mean he sleeps through the night, but I haven't slept through the night myself since my early twenties.  Girlfriend's got a tiny bladder.  As long as I am not up with the baby feeling frantic and helpless, I'm good.  There have been a handful of long nights but they really weren't that bad.  Ted always asks if he can "walk Mo around" - literally meaning he just holds Mo and hums to him and walks him around.  It always puts Mo to sleep.  He is also pretty portable.  We don't go out much but when we do, he is easy to be out with.  This week I took him to physical therapy with me and my six week doctor visit with Dr. D.  He was a trooper.  He likes being held, read to, sung to and played with.  Some days we "do stuff" like listen to music and play in his room.  Other days, he just sits on my lap while I read or talk to him or watch television.  He's really low maintenance and he is really good at tummy time (he was born with a really strong neck...everyone in the delivery room was commenting on it).  I am just wild about him.  Thank god that we got another easy baby.  Also, he lets me kiss him all of his waking hours.  My lips are literally glued to his delicious smelling cheeks all of the time.  He's just awesome.

Good. Good. I think one of the things that is a shock as a first time mother is that you are never off-duty. Of course you knew that logically, but motherhood is the first time that you were perpetually on-call all the time. Second time round, well - no shock value there. So you know what you're doing, and yeah, little babies are really pretty easy. But everything else is fecking hard... enjoy Mo - he is scrumptious xx

Okay, that last pic is TOTAL Leviss face. Also, I'd like to read whatever book that is...it seems pretty captivating.
