Our little dude had a hard day yesterday…drooling like crazy and very cranky. Looks like the one tooth on the bottom may have a companion very soon. When he was awake–he was fussy. He napped almost the entire day and slept much better last night, only waking us once at 3am for a bottle.
We stayed in the room all day with the exception of a brief visit to the playroom.
Last night, we enjoyed a play date with Max and 2 for 1 pizzas delivered from Jaspas. Very nice! Max’s Aunt made up a delicious cheese plate and we had a little cabernet to go with it. I think J and I were a bit starved for grown up conversation so we soaked it all in.
Morgan is having his morning nap right now…I really hope that we will get to visit the lake today. We are shooting for lunch and a stroll if the little man’s mood holds out.
The good news–his hair is starting to slowly grow back. I had hoped the orphanage would not shave his head before the giving and receiving…but they did. I almost didn’t recognize him at first sight after all of the cute Woody Woodpecker hair photos that we got at 6months. His head had several little cuts from the razor that itch…he scratches all the time…but likes it when you brush his hair.
He’s eating like a champ–cereal, banana, mango, and a jar of pears that wreaked havoc on his digestive system! He looks much more hydrated and has good wet diapers now. His first day with us I was terrified because he hardly went at all.
He babbles non-stop, mostly Ba! Da! and something that sounds like AYYYY or AYAAAA! His voice is funny…going from a growl at times to a cute baby coo. He seems to have lots of built in “machismo” he moves with a little swagger and sounds so tough when he’s talking. It’s so funny!
Morgan is letting daddy hold him and play with him more–but still whines if I make eye contact when it happens. I have to work on ignoring him so that they can bond. It’s tough…but Jeremy is trying so hard and it really seems to be paying off.
