We're moving to our new house this weekend…if all goes as planned. If you didn't know, we've been living with my parents for 3+ months to look for a job, get rejuvenated, and "bond" our family, if you will… We moved here when Baby D was almost 2 months old. We, of course, thought we wouldn't be here but 6ish weeks. Well, God had other plans. Plans that were well worth waiting for. We're excited about our move and hubby's new job. We have enjoyed living here and will miss Grammy & Grampy, for sure. They were a tremendous help and the time that the boys got to spend with them was priceless.
Back to the story, Baby D started sleeping through the night soon after we moved here. (and let's pray that he continues to do so!!!) :o) But I sit here thinking what it was like when we first moved in and I barely remember any of it. WHY is that? I was thinking the other day about how I don't remember much from this part of Fussybuckets' life. Of course then, I had a good reason to feel like a zombie because he was sleeping horribly, up every 45 mins – 3 hours, and continued to sleep horribly for a while. Thank goodness for pictures!
|Two months old|
|5 months old – Easter|
I remember the day the above picture was taken, simply because it was Easter. He was sleeping better at night, but I remember trying to get him to sleep at church. He refused to! He just kept popping his head up and looking around at all the people! He always has been curious and interested in other people! I think he stayed up for 6 or so hours! It was crazy!
|6 1/2 months old|
This is when it starts getting good and the memories come flooding back. My friends have told me that you just gotta survive for the first 6 months, and then it gets better! I really do believe that. Baby D is 5 1/2 months old and getting more and more fun all of the time. He is able to stay awake longer and while he never does anything at the same time every day, he's falling into a routine. He's still taking short naps, but he throws a long one in there every once in awhile.
