As I mentioned in this previous post, we bought Simon these blue jean diapers made by Huggies and Ron put them on Simon for the first time. If he wants to be a model, I understand he might need to show a little skin. So without further adieu… Introducing your next blue jeans model!
Here’s what they look like in the back.
Super cute, don’t you agree?
After donning his new jeans, he already has an entourage following him around: a cow, a frog, an elephant, and Winnie the Pooh.
Simon seems to enjoy the cow bell toy. I was able to make him laugh out loud when playing with him. He is also a bit scared of it though so kind of makes laughing-crying sounds at the same time.
A video from Sunday where I’m playing with Simon and his cow toy and he is laughing.
Ron and Simon came to pick me up from work today so I had more time to spend with Simon since this morning, I didn’t get to spend any time with him as he didn’t wake up until about 2 minutes before I had to leave to catch the bus. The last few evenings, it’s been difficult to figure out a routine that works for us all. I get off of work this week at 5pm so usually arrive home by 5:45pm by bus and walking a few blocks. Simon’s bedtime is 8:30-9:30pm so I only have a few hours to play with him. In those few hours, we have dinner and I’m exhausted and would love to take a nap but when I fall asleep at night, I usually don’t wake up again until it’s the middle of the night so I’m trying not to nap. But I’m not sure how that is affecting my playtime with Simon when I’m not as alert as I could be. When Simon does finally fall asleep, I still pump and then it’s time for me to get ready to go to sleep at 10pm since I try to get as much sleep as possible before I wake up around 3am to pump again, then I am up for about 30 minutes before going to sleep again and waking up at 6:15am so that I can do all my morning things before Simon wakes up.
I’m not sure how long I can keep this up and I’m not sure how long I’ll be able to keep this blog on track. While on maternity leave I would update usually on the next morning but may now change to the evening of. I still want to be able to print out these blog entries to make a book of his 1st year. We’ll see if I can keep it up.
One good note, Simon has taken to breastfeeding again. He is no longer so fussy that he requires a bottle to drink milk. I wonder if he notices that I’m at work all day… if he does, maybe he knows that when he breastfeeds then I don’t feel so bad (like I’m failing my baby when he refuses) and makes me still feel useful.
Alright, time for bed, my eyes are already drooping and it’s not even 10:30pm yet!
