It's been an exciting addition to our family since Myron came along.
For all of us, we are busier than we could ever imagine, with this little cutie to attend to.
He is on his way achieving turning over from lying on his back to his belly.
When propped up on an adult pillow, he does it in no time.
When he is flat on the bed, he is just almost there.
His favourite song is the ABC, but we also sing all kinds of song to him. Sometimes we just hum something we just make up along the way while rocking and patting him to sleep.
For some development and stimulation, Mommy pasted these pictures by the corner of the bed.
It seems, rbw, red-black-white. are the colors that causes something to be switched on in their brain.
These are the two toys he loves to play with right now:
The soft dolphin and the Hey Diddle-diddle.Other times, especially while nursing he would be playing with his ear, the handkerchief or mummy's shirt.
He is a really happy baby. He loves to talk back to you when you talk to him, and when you sing the ABC, he will giggle every time you pause at the end of a line.
Like father, like son, Myron also is drawn to gadget-daddy's gadgets.
Hmmm... What are they looking at on daddy's iPhone?
Myron's eyes are glued to the screen.
He always look at the direction of where his two brothers are playing and he will start waving his arms and kicking his legs in the air. Bet he can't wait to be able to run off and join them at play.
He started "eating" his hand about a month back.
Sometimes you can really hear the slurping sound. Are you hands so delicious?
He rarely cries unless he is really sleepy but not put to the breast or not being rocked and patted.
He also cries when he needs to be burped. This is because he is afraid that he might vomit.
He is quite prone to vomiting after a feed. Hence he knows that awful feeling of something coming up the gut and usually wails to be lifted upright.
Clever, isn't he?
He sometimes cries very terribly in his sleep, but it's a good thing it's less frequent now. This I'm certain is because of nightmares from all the needles he'd experienced while having his prolonged jaundice.
Of late, we noticed that he is starting to be more particular about strangers and strange places.
The other day, when some of his grandaunts came to visit, he cried when one of them spoke to him. He first purse his lower lip, then burst into a wail. He was consoled when grandma took him away from the "stranger".
He also cried the other day when we went into a coffee shop for lunch. He looked around the place and then pursed his lower lip and then cried. He was only consoled when Grandma handed him to Mommy. In Mommy's arms, he sobbed for a moment and then was perfectly calmed down. Isn't he too young to be doing this?
Everyone loves this beautiful boy.
Myron, you are so precious to us.
Everyday we give thanks to the Almighty for such a gift as lovely as you.
