Asher is struggling with the sudden limitations put on our nursing relationship. I decided to let him nurse at will as long as I've eaten enough recently. From what I've heard, nursing may make morning sickness easier to bear, although nursing him first thing in the morning hasn't gone well for me so far.
He is really funny and so into everything! He learned to climb his sister's loft bed.
He brings me a blanket and a book and then snuggles up to me to listen to the book. He will say, "Nuggle? Read?"
He really seems to understand certain situations that I thought were beyond his comprehension, like my throwing up or his needing to stay in bed a bit longer.
He's stringing words together to form sentences and he suddenly seems to know all the words! He also imitates everything we or the TV say.
He stuck his head under my skirt over and over and said "naked" each time. He often points out that people are "naked" even if just a little clothing has been removed.
He came up to me on the bed one morning and tapped me over and over saying "Mommy, Mommy!" Then when he had my attention he said, "Peshush!" (Precious)
After laughing and saying "Oh Toodles!" He said, "Tiss!" And have his Mickey a kiss.
His sister started weeping because of a chore I asked her to do and he came up to her and knelt beside her and hugged her and then asked, "K? K?" I've noticed he does that if he hears me throwing up too. He's so empathetic.
He walked up to his sister and offered her a piece of sandwich. She didn't notice so he started saying, "Hey, HEY!" to get her attention. When that didn't work he hollered, "Eat, EAT IT! EAT IT."
He meant well.
When I'm laying down sick, he will come up to me and smile and flirt or tell me something short like, "Mouse!" (Micky Mouse) or ask for a "Cookie?" Before walking away giggling.
He uses 2-3 word sentences. "I hurt! Head hurt!" For instance, when he gets a bump.
I lay down most of the time now and he notices. He came in and told me to wake up. Then said, "Nap?" Meaning he wanted to join me in the bed. He misses nursing on demand but mostly takes it well when I tell him I can't.
Me: Hey, Bud! Ready for your nap?
Baby Bear: Nope! No nap. No nap. Ssssshhhh! (Whispers) Quiet!
Baby Bear's awake and we aren't quite able to take him out of the crib yet. He's using all the words in his arsenal to get out: "Mommy! Daddy! Bible? Mickey Mouse? Poopy! Eggs? Eggs! Out! Outside! I love you! Mommy?"
Bear: Kiss, kiss?
Me: Sure, Buddy, here's a kiss.
Bear: No, (his sister's name).
He likes bringing me food from his play kitchen. He'll go there and back to me over and over again if I keep asking him for things. He offers me cake and I ask for tea and he says, "Okay'" and runs down to get it.
My sick little man is happily singing "Do You Want to Build a Snowman" despite his feverish shivers. I love him so much!! (He had a virus for 3-4 days and thankfully Daddy was able to take care of him during most of that time).
Bunny: Bear, pass me the ball! Bear! Bear, the ball!
Baby Bear started playing his harmonica, then suddenly stopped and said, "No. Be quiet."
We're watching Frozen, mostly because Baby Bear loves Olaf and I didn't realize how much he understands the story. He knows both of the girls names, he yelled, "Daddy!!!" when Elsa talks with her father, he said, "Cry," when they have the memorial for their parents, and when Anna's knocking on her sister's door he said, "Elsa..." I promise, we don't watch this often.
Yesterday afternoon my hubby was at work and Baby Bear decided he wanted him. "Daddy, Daddy?" He yelled. "Here? Daddy here?" After he had no answer and I told him a couple of times Daddy was working he ran around saying, "WAKE UP! Daddy, wake up!"
Baby Bear likes to bring me food and dishes from his fridge and warn me that it's "hot."
Bunny did my makeup and Asher did my hair.
Putting his little Donny doll on the potty. He's very interested in the potty and if I weren't so sick right now I'd work with him on potty training more vigorously. I just can't right now. Occasionally I let him sit on the potty either clothed or not, but he has yet to actually do his business there.
