Sweet boy


Daddy was feeling a little under the weather last week.  Kyton decided to keep him company, and try to make him feel better!  sweet boy and daddy.jpg

Cooler temperatures

I’m not sure what happened this year, but we skipped winter. I am sure that if you live up north you are thrilled that it has been a mild winter, but down here we count on our break from the heat.

Here are a few pictures of Ky on one of the three ‘cold days’ we experienced this year.

Did you enjoy the temperatures this winter where you live?

Sippy Cup

Kyton stopped taking a bottle about a month and a half ago.  After about two weeks of his refusing to take his afternoon bottle, I stopped pumping.  He holds out until I get home from work.  Just in the past week he has decided to take a sippy cup.  So far we’ve just put water in the cup, but I’m considering trying milk again using the cup.

Has anyone tried this?  Did it work well?

Sleeping baby

Dylan has been making a point recently to take more pictures of my with Kyton, which I greatly appreciate.  Here are a few that he snapped last weekend when Ky fell asleep after eating.

I could stare at him all day!

Baby led weaning hybrid approach

I mentioned before how we were unsure of how we wanted to feed Kyton

We’ve found a nice hybrid that works for us.  Ky loves anything that we are eating, so we try to share table food when it is healthy and appropriate.

Dylan prefers feeding him the traditional baby mush, so I keep a variety in the freezer on hand.

I often eat a wheat bagel with cream cheese as a snack.  This has become one of Ky’s favorites.  He gnaws on the bread enough to make it soggy and eat his snack.  When he’s with me he does a lot of self feeding. playing Ky.jpg

Between the two he has a nice mix of ‘baby lead weaning’ and the traditional approach to baby food.

We made the short trip to Harmony last weekend with the intention of going to a community garage sale.  We didn’t find many treasures. but I’m thrilled with the shots we got of our sweet Kyton.

This was our first attempt at the sales.  Has anyone had luck at garage sales?

Orange Goatee

Ky was eating some squash, and it looked like he had a goatee to match his hair.

I just love the color of his hair!

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day!

Have you heard of boom-whackers?

They are plastic tubes that are cut to the exact length to produce a toned sound.

My mom is very musical, so my parents gave Ky a set for Christmas.

(They are often used in elementary school music classes.)

He loves hitting them on the ground, and making noise.

I like going into his room, and playing simple childhood songs like Hot Cross Buns, Twinkle Twinkle, Mary had a Little Lamb, Chopsticks and Row Row Row your boat.

I’m sure I am missing some.  What are your favorite childhood songs?

not sleeping

I wrote about how easy it was to get Ky to sleep, and how it is not currently.

We go back and forth between good night of sleep, and sleepless nights. 

can't get sleep-9.jpg

I’ve written on sleep so many times. He’s doing great!  He won’t sleep.  He’s back to being great!  He won’t sleep!

can't get sleep-5.jpg

I think I have him figured out now. 

can't get sleep-3.jpg

He’s a great sleeper, unless I blog about him sleeping well. 

can't get sleep-7.jpg

Really I think he’s a good sleeper as long as he’s feeling well.

(Here I tried swaddling.  It didn’t work.)

Dylan wants to try cry it out.  I don’t.

I am confident that once this set of teeth come in he’ll go back to normal.

It’s been a rough few weeks between, the stomach bug, painful teeth, and Dylan being sick.

Dylan has a hard time believing that other parents miss out on sleep to comfort their children. 

can't get sleep-4.jpg

I feel like I’m going through my day in a fog.

Most nights he ends up here, in our bed.  On good nights it is at 7am so that he can nurse before I go to work.  On bad nights we fall asleep together to begin with.  We love cuddling with him, and feel confident with the research and our own sleeping styles that he is perfectly safe with us.

Any other parents up at night?
