Well, technically both, but 2 months sounds younger! I'm really trying to work on my sadness over all of my kids growing and getting bigger. I want to learn to live for today and enjoy their ages with no regrets of yesterday. I think I'm getting better, but don't see myself ever completely not wanting these younger years back. Well, parts of them!
Minutes after Brady was born he started sucking on his hands. The first time we saw him sucking on them was in an ultrasound. This week he has started spitting out his paci and trying to suck his fingers more than usual.
Brady received his first vaccinations at his appointment. It's always scary and it never gets easier vaccinating our kids, but Joe and I feel like it's important. We pray over them each time and trust God to keep them safe. Brady got 3 shots and one oral vaccine. He was happy and smiling at times throughout the rest of the day, but also seemed to not feel his normal self. He fussed a lot in the evening and Joe and I had to take turns bouncing and walking with him. We've never had to do that to calm him before. The next day he seemed much better.
Tomorrow's Valentine's Day and I have so many things to do and create before bedtime. Bethany asked me before she went to bed if we could just have a big party for school tomorrow. We have some candy and small gifts for them, but I wasn't fully prepared for a "big party". So I'm gonna raid my cupboards and get creative with what I have on hand. Plus, I have a kitchen to clean, and toys to pick up, so that Monday greets me a little nicer than Sunday night left me. Looks like Monday might be greeting me at midnight rather than sunrise. Brady's reminding me to put him at the top of my list, he's crying and ready to eat, the fingers are only good for so long.
