I saw Asher take his first crawling step forward--just barely, with one hand. Then, he threw himself onto his belly. He's definitely moving forward now.
He's very curious and all about experimenting with things.
I took him to the ER because I wanted to be sure he hadn't swallowed some of my father's heart medicine (We found a couple of vitamin E capsules on the floor from his medicine bag), and he hadn't. We discovered he weighs 9.1 kg or 20lbs when we were there. He hasn't gained anything lately.
He likes new environments. He thought the crib in the ER was fantastic. He hates his crib at home.
Bath time after a trip to the hospital. Hospitals and doctor's offices are always full of the most malignant germs! I'm not a germaphobe unless I'm in one of those places.
He likes playing with the pots and the pans in the kitchen while I work. It's a new thing.
He really likes dropping things.
He grunts and pushes at his sister if she gets too huggy or her attention is uncomfortable, but he also thinks she's really hilarious.
He sat up once from laying down when he was in the crib. I didn't actually see him do it, I just saw that he was sitting and I put him in there on his belly. His lip was bleeding when I found him so we're not sure how that happened--probably banged his little face against the bars :-(. It was a sad occasion for a milestone.
He got a nasty stomach bug. It was the first time he's been sick! He threw up about 30 minutes after every feeding and when he throws up it's almost like he's choking--it's so scary! I had to change my outfit three times over the course of it.
He lived in the Moby or the Boba, whined and moaned all day, slept more than normal, and took all his naps with me. I had to pace and pace and pace to keep him content and content wasn't really content at all.
He was so miserable, poor baby!
I spent a lot of that day watching Downton Abbey.
We tried Gerber finger food for the first time--puffs and yogurt bites. He threw it up, but it was right at the end of his stomach bug so that probably contributed to it.
I feel like he is skinnier after his stomach bug. He was throwing up everything so, maybe I shouldn't have, but with him throwing everything up, I started limiting his feedings so it wouldn't all hit his belly at once. He didn't throw up after the little feedings so at least I knew he was keeping something down. Hopefully that also kept him from losing too much weight. He's a chunker to begin with so that helped, at least, but I'm sorry to see some of his fat layer go.
He is starting to let me put him down at bedtime when he doesn't fall asleep after nursing.
He's much needier after his stomach bug. He cries anytime I leave the room.
