Mom’s Stuff:
Signs that you have made a drastic shift in your life:

  • You go from joking about your baby having a “really good poop” to actually meaning it
  • Taking a shower for more than five minutes is equivalent to a weekend at a luxury spa
  • Sleeping in means sleeping from 11pm to 4am, and then again from 5am to 8am
  • Canned soup, foccacia and salad is no longer an easy weeknight dinner – it is a three course meal
  • You cuss out mothers on T.V. who dramatize the struggle of having a baby – all while wearing perfect make-up and somehow finding time to still be at work
  • “Goo” and “Goo” seems like a perfectly legitimate conversation – with you on one side of it

And a shout out to LP’s grandmas’: You know you are officially a grandma when you start to show the guy at the post-office more pictures of your grandson, and he says he is pretty sure he has seen them all already.

LP’s Stuff:
LP is definitely starting to do his social smiling, and he is also starting to grab at objects more routinely. He also is starting to follow a bit more of a schedule in terms of play time and naps, which also seems to be helping him sleep more at night. He is also still growing. He has now officially outgrown a fair amount of his newborn outfits, and he is fitting into things that I had put away for when he is three months old (good thing I raided that drawer this morning!) He also is a huge fan of dad. Last night we discovered (on two different occasions) that LP wouldn’t go to sleep or focus on nursing when he could look at Dad. The G-man had to cover LP’s face with his T-shirt to get LP to go to sleep. Luckily for us LP still has not figured out object permanence, so if he can’t see it, it doesn’t exist. Still, I don’t think we will be able to fool him that much longer!


LP gets in touch with his sports roots – don’t tell the Red Socks fans!!!
