proud mommy day

Little Man rolled all the way over today... he's been rolling from his back to his side for a month or more but he would always get pissed off before he actually got all the way over onto his stomach.

once on his tummy he seemed very nonchalant about the whole thing but i was VERY excited :>:>:>

re: giving Little Man formula for the 1st time yesterday

Little Man was born July 13th so he's over 3 months, specifically he's 14 weeks and 1 day old.

Breast-feeding has been going very well, at his 2 mnth appt he was in the 95 percentile re: weight and height.

Yesterday I was bfing him about every 1.5 hrs for at least 15 minutes and he had an extended 45 min feed at 3 p.m.

we left him with Mom at 4:30 and she fed him 7 oz at 6 p.m. and 7 oz at 9:45 p.m. (those were formula feedings) then I fed him for 15 mins at 12:20 a.m. and then at 1 he was still up and wanted a bit more so I fed him a 5 min "snack" feeding adn then we all went to bed.

Normally he eats about every 3 hrs if he's feeding for at least 15 mins but with the teething, grumpiness, sleep sked fucked up etc... he's been wanting to be on the boob a LOT more

mom stuff
so i am awake still...

feeling really rundown today but still in good spirits.

everytime I look at Little Man I am utterly amazed at how strong and smart he is! And he is almost always SO happy and I want to do my best to help him stay that happy for the rest of his life.

I always imagined how much I'd love my children when I would someday have them but it wasn't even close to the way I feel... my love for my son blows what I had imagined I'd feel out of the water with the intensity of it all.
