This is my very first blog!! Boy oh boy, it is hard to find the time to write a post! I've had this blog set up for two days now and this is the first time I've had to sit down and write. Alex, my three month old baby boy, keeps me very busy.
It's his three month birthday today, and he was especially cranky (maybe he was expecting presents and a cake). Everytime I put him down he started screaming. And when I say screaming, I am not exaggerating. He screams really, really loud! But, when he looks up at me, and smiles his special "I love you, Mommy" smile just for me, it makes it all worth it...
Alex definitely knows what he likes. If you ask me, that's pretty advanced for a three month old. For instance, he likes being held, all the time. He does not like being left in his swing for more than 2 minutes unless he is sleeping. He likes going for rides in his stroller, but only if you push him around and around the living room in a circle until you get so dizzy that you are going to pass out, but you keep going because you know that if you stop he will start screaming again, which is the reason that you started the crazy stroller loop in the first place. He loves being held while I bounce on an exercise ball. He likes dancing around the living room while I chant "Yummy yummy yummy" over and over again. I don't recall how I came to the realization that he likes this, it just happened one day and he liked it, so I keep doing it. He also likes me to swing him in my arms while I sing songs to him. With all of this dancing, walking, bouncing, swaying, and swinging, you would think that I would lose all of that extra baby weight! But that battle of the bulge has yet to be won and is a different story entirely.
So now that you know all about Alex, I will expect you to be on call for babysitting.
