And so he is... when he's sleeping. The rest of the time he's a bit of a disgruntled customer. Not to mention stubborn, opinionated and anal retentive.
(He'll be a fine German man.)
Boys and their digestive systems! Sheesh!
But we love him dearly. Good thing for him he's so cute.
Since this is my third child his cries don't send me into transports of panic. I cuddle him, kiss his silky little head and breath in his musky scent and wait patiently for the crying to stop. And occasionally I just let him cry for a bit while I throw in a load of laundry.
With my girls I'm a bit less patient: Over the weekend K wrote a note saying how desperately bored she felt so I made her clean her room for an hour.
She hasn't been bored since. ;-)
They've been wonderful, though. L gives J his bottle and K reads to L and teaches her math. Whoever invented big sisters was a genius.
Oh, hey, the baby's crying again. Gotta run!
