I can already see progress in Kaleb since five days ago when he came to us. We've introduced baby cereal, after we found out his age, which has done wonders to his fussiness. I think he was just hungry. We've also switched him off soy formula to lactose-free, which has decreased his spitting up after a bottle by half. He's still quite the fussy spitter upper, which I'll ask our pediatrician about next week. Overall he seems to be getting more comfortable with us. Even I am getting used to the 2:30am cuddle and bottle time. We've been trying to incorporate more tummy time and lay him to sleep on his side, since his sweet noggin is pretty flat. All just simple things but hopefully things that make him more comfortable and give him a loved sort of feeling.
I found these wooden bowls at the thrift shop last week for .49 each. They match the spoons Sean carved the kiddos for their Christmas stockings. We treat them all with a beeswax and olive oil mixture, which is fantastic for dry hands too!
We've been enjoying spring weather this past weekend and today. I crunch, crunched my way through the snow to hang a few first loads of the year on the line and chopped away at melting ice on the walkway. The kids are enjoying seeing how much work (or little of) they have left for the schoolyear. Bookwork is quickly done each day so they can play outside. Aiden has just begun to sound out words and is as proud as a peacock. We are all anxious for spring.
