He’s like me…

It’s funny how when you finally give birth people already start trying to figure out who the baby looks like. He has your eyes, and his ears are just like his fathers. Funny. Right?! I mean even when they are just a few hours old, they can look just like you. That was the case with Mavi and I. He looked just like me. But thankfully he was more like his father in the way he was. A quiet happy baby. I was hell. A crying baby almost ALL the time. I don’t know how my mom didn’t kill me. Seriously. When Mavi cried for 3 hours straight once, I wanted to die. I balled and cried out for my mom… because I didn’t know what to do. Thankfully this only happened once. Like I said he’s like his father on this point.

I was a hungry baby. And so is Mavi. He’s a champ when it comes to drinking. 5 mins tops and he’s done. He burps like a champ, sometimes I wonder how such a loud noise can come out of such a small thing.  He smiles all the time. Just like his dad did when he was a baby. Phew. So glad he got that from him. When people see Mavi they are so impressed on how alert he is, and how he is all smiles. “You have one good baby” they tell us, and I smile. Hoping this is not just a dream and that he will stay this way until he’s 18.

BUT, I have one impatient baby. He knows what he wants and he wants it NOW. So the only time he cries. He doesn’t cry, he yells… he is hysterical. But it lasts a whole 2 secs, until he gets boobie, or we change his diaper. He gets that from his dad. Le sigh.

When I was a baby and even a toddler, one thing for sure, I loved to sleep. LOVED IT. So much that my mom would tell me “if you don’t finish dinner, you aren’t going to bed” I am serious!!! Who says that?! Not sleeping = punishment. That was me. Sleep was the best time for me and I loved it oh-so much. Well apart from Mavi having my eyes, loving a pacifier, sucking his thumb and being a big drinker like me… he sleeps, and to me that is the BEST thing he could have taken from me. At just 5 weeks, he started sleeping 5 hours, then 6 and that kept going on. At 6 weeks he was sleeping 8 hours straight. Just last week at 8 weeks, he slept 10 hours straight. 10 hours. I couldn’t believe it. And he naps too. (not all the time… but I am I can’t complain. If he slept all through the night)

Since day 2, he’s been sleeping in his crib. I tried having sleep 1 night in his basinet and he would make too many noises it kept me up all night… so I said to myself no freaken way. So in the crib he went. Luckily he slept and never had issues with the crib. The hubs and I agreed that we wouldn’t be those parents that would stop living when the baby slept. So we passed the vaccum, had the tv on loud, we would basically continue living while baby slept. Of course he woke up once or twice or jumped in his crib, but now he’s a champ and can sleep through anything and can sleep anywhere.

He also can fall asleep in his crib by himself. As I type this that’s exactly what he is doing. Looking at his mobile, with covers and his pacifier… and then he’s out cold. I love that. Plus, I realized that when he sleeps 9 hours or more, he wakes up in his crib and just chats with his friends. So he even lets me sleep. Who does that?! We realized this when the hubby got up for work and saw he was awake at 6am. So I waited until he cried to get up. I looked at the clock and it was 7am. He was still wide away, looking and chatting to the mobile.

I am not trying to brag at all in this post… just saying how things are. I am even impressed  myself. It only makes me wonder how baby #2 will be. No, I am not pregnant now, but when we do decide to have another. Probably that baby will be the opposite of Mavi and that scares me a whole lot.  Until then, I am hoping his sleeping habits will stay… keeping my fingers and toes crossed.

How is your baby like you?

    Yet we don’t truly hassle about that, and leap right in. Numerology is used to research the different meanings of numbers that affects a individual’s life. This sign balances the zodiac as Justice represents stability and equality.

    Together with the whole thing which seems to be building throughout this particular subject matter, many of your points of view are generally somewhat refreshing. Even so, I am sorry, because I do not subscribe to your whole suggestion, all be it exciting none the less. It would seem to me that your comments are generally not totally rationalized and in simple fact you are your self not even totally certain of your point. In any case I did appreciate reading it.

    I have come to understand that expenses for internet degree authorities tend to be a fantastic value. For example a full College Degree in Communication from The University of Phoenix Online consists of 60 credits with $515/credit or $30,900. Also American Intercontinental University Online makes available Bachelors of Business Administration with a entire study course element of 180 units and a worth of $30,560. Online learning has made obtaining your college degree far more easy because you could earn your own degree through the comfort of your abode and when you finish working. Thanks for all the other tips I have really learned through your web site.

    Thanks for revealing your ideas. A very important factor is that students have a choice between federal government student loan and a private student loan where it is easier to decide on student loan debt consolidation reduction than with the federal student loan.
