watermelon and hiccups

Posted in Life in general with tags , , , , , on Sunday 10 May 2009 by amanda

Kieran tried watermelon for the first time today, and loves it 🙂  of course he does…both his daddy and I love it!  he basically had no choice.  

Liam also gets the hiccups at LEAST as often as Kieran did as a newborn, which is to say daily at a minimum.  Poor kid – they wake him up, but don’t bug him too much as long as he’s being held.

Also, forgot to post this before, but Liam is STRONG.  Newborns are NOT supposed to be able to lift their heads, but as soon as he was born and put on my chest in the labor room, he lifted his head up.  Ola and I were both like…”that’s not right!”  He’s already contorting his little body around like a baby much older.  It’s crazy.  We’re supposed to be in that stage where you could leave him on the changing table if you wanted to, but nooooo we have to watch him already.  🙂

We went to the park today for Mama’s Day, which was awesome.  We chased Kieran around and held Liam…it was breezy, sunny, and perfect 🙂

Oh, and I have my Crim Law final tomorrow.  Augh!

Liam was born on Tuesday 28 April, 2009 at 7:43 PM.  He was 21.5 inches long, weighed 8 lbs 14 oz, and has a headful of black hair and beautiful brown eyes 🙂  We came home last Thursday and have been settling into a convoluted but nice routine since then.  

Ola’s home until the 18th, but I have finals on the 11th and 14th, so we’re keeping busy.  Kieran is doing really well with this strange new little creature in the house – he likes to touch Liam’s hair, and generally poke at him.  Otherwise he ignores him.  Kieran has taken this opportunity to leap forward developmentally in some ways…he’s chattering and talking more, and the other day added “ball” to his vocabulary.  Still not too many words, but he’s slowly adding them!  Kieran is also starting to “help” with laundry, loading the dishwasher, and putting things away.  It’s incredibly sweet and *very* helpful to mommy!

Liam is still sleeping most of the time, except at night when he wants to eat every 2 hours and then sometimes hang out…silly babies – they get so confused 🙂

Pics are up on the Flickr site and on FB, and I’ll post some here soon.  However, I’ve been so delinquent in putting his birth up here at all I figured I should do it without pics before he turns 1 🙂
