Celebrating four months is such an achievement. I know it seems like a short time, but having little munchkin in my life has made every day so memorable it feels like a year and I totally enjoy it. With this new level of his life, he now fits his fist into his mouth, has proper eye and hand coordination, he can easily pull something I am holding, tempted to pour my tea to discover what that is.
I remember when people used to ask me if he can see, and at some point I got scared. After referring to Dr. Google, I relaxed as it gets better with time as his brain develops. I remember when he just used to stare at me, I liked it coz I was the centre of his attention, but he has since discovered that he can see all other cool people and things. He now enjoys looking around and has even gotten to mastering people’s faces. This has led to feeling sweet for some of the people who try to hold him, and excitement when he can recognize his chosen few.
Good news for mummy is, he is not peeing on me as often, this must be because I am back to work and I don’t change him as often. What he now enjoys doing is while changing him, he kicks and sometimes reaches out for the water. This has led to a couple of spills but we have now known where to place it.
So they say that kids pick out some habits from their parents, wait for it…. Munchkin is now eating his tongue, direct translation, just like his mummy. I have no idea how. With that his gums have become so hard and he knows when to play with his food factory and when to pull it out. OUCH!!!
He hogs almost three quarters of the bed, yes he still sleeps in my bed *hides*. With his little hands that seem so long when he stretches them out, I find them on my face. Surprisingly he can turn to an angle of 45 degrees so I have to keep checking him up on him. He now pulls the covers to eat when he wakes up , so I have to make sure he is covered up to where his hands will not pull them above his tiny face.
My most treasured moments are when he wakes up and cries, then he sees mean it turns to a smile, from ear to ear as he lifts his hands up with excitement. That warms my heart and chases all my problems far, far away. I am so jazzed to have a little me, he is my all. Meanwhile he has started to threaten to fall, actually fallen once, a scared mum that makes me, but that is for my next blog item.
Munchkin, what was Mummy’s life like before you?
