I have had one sleepy boy today. I'm thinking this yucky rain has hit him like it hits me. I understand that the pretty flowers and little creatures need water, but i dislike the rain. It just so inconvenient for me... Messes up my hair no matter how its fixed, cant wear my flip flops or my toes will freeze, and the backs of my jeans get soaking wet. Ugh rain rain go away.
Davyn and I have just been snuggling all day, this happens to be my favorite thing might i add :) We took us an extra long bubble bath this morning and he was just soo happy about it. He loves having his little feet in the water at all times. Dav cant quite figure out the whole water thing yet... When it gets on his face he gets pretty upset. But other than that, he loves his bath time. Now that he is grabbing stuff and putting EVERYTHING in his mouth, he gets to play with his bath toys! We have a rubber ducky that makes noises and swims around in the water and Dav thinks that's the coolest thing ever. When it comes near him he gets sooo excited... So excited that he flings his arms and legs so fast that he gets water everywhere. By that time, water is on his face and he is screaming so ducky always ruins bath time.
But baths wouldn't be as fun without him. :)
I absolutely LOVE naked babies. If they are chunky, even better. So once we get out of the bath he gets rubbed down with his lavender calming oil. He will just lay there and smile if you just keep massaging his lil self.
Talking is required as well. For some reason i get a crazy look if I'm not telling him something at all times. I give him a ton of baby talk, he loves it. But i also talk to him like he can really understand what I'm saying.
I read in "Your Baby's First Years" that reading and speaking to them in a normal tone of voice will help them with learning and talking later on. So when i get my Cosmo's in the mail we have us a reading day :) He is all up to date on how to get killer confidence.
We just read that article yesterday :)) Dee also wants to get him this program called "Your Baby Can Read." Its suppose to have them talking in like 8 months and teaches them how to read from like post cards. So that's a little activity Dee can enjoy with him this summer.
Unfortunately our Doctor got sick this morning and went home, so no apt for Davyn today. We are going Friday morning instead. I always get so excited about going to the doctor. Dee and I always bet to see how much he weights. Even though he cant see or hold Davyn, he swears he can tell from pictures. :) He was pretty darn close last time so we will see who lucks out Friday. I say little man is a 16 pounder!
Hope everyone had a great rainy Tuesday!
