Jack is now rolling front to back and back to side. Peek-a-boo is the new favorite game. Jack is officially teething, as demonstrated by evening fussiness. It’s getting easier and easier to read him and guess what his needs are, which is fantastic because being a new mom is tough stuff.
I’ve decided that there should be at least some deal for new moms. I mean we’re in pain from birth, we don’t look like we used to, we have a baby who may or may not sleep well, and then there is the fussiness. It seems that mother nature (or whoever) should throw new moms a bone. We don’t need parenting to be easy, because it should be a challenge, it’s beautiful and it’s something to appreciate… but maybe we could give birth and then ::poof:: instantly have our body back… that would be ok.
With that said, Jack is a pretty easy baby, and I’m lucky to be his mom. He’s a good sleeper, and when he’s ‘fussy’ it’s really not that bad. But the best part of all it he’s such a happy guy, just about anything and everything makes him laugh.
