Now that he is a month old is it getting easier? Yes and no. Now that he is older he is awake more, which means less sleep for me. I have also notice the last couple of days he has been a Momma's boy and will freak out if I am not near. How he knows I left him in a different room? Smell? Six sense? Who knows! So when he is down I have to stay near him or else he wakes right back up.
He also decided recently that he hates being dirty, before he would be okay with being wet for a few mins, now he screams as soon as he is wet. I know this is my genes fault, I love to touch and feel everything and I notice he does as well. When I don't like a feeling, I kinda freak out. For an example; Matthew has these knife sharping blocks. I picked it up to put it away and I freaked out and dropped it. The feeling of it made my feeling senses go into shock, so much so that now I refuse to touch them Matthew finds this rather funny and leaves them where I might touch them by mistake.
Other than those things he is a great baby!
Matthew is getting more comfortable with handling Samuel
It took about a month to finally feel normal, At 3 weeks I was finally able to walk around without hurting. I never imagine I would be that sore for that long after having a baby. I suppose it had to do with my size, I am what people call fun-size! Ha ha ha.
Tomorrow Samuel and I are going on a road trip. We are getting to pick my Uncle Jr up from prison. He has been in there for over 20 years and he is finally getting out. It will be a very special time for us. I am so glad I am here to see him walk out as a free man! This will be the first time for him seeing Samuel as well. I have not visited my Uncle since 2011. I remember when we would come to Texas we would always see my Uncle Jr. We have pictures of me as a baby visiting him. I remember him always telling us to behave and never get into trouble because nothing is worth missing out on life. He had to miss out on a lot of life, he missed out on his parents growing old, marriages, births, holidays, so much! I will be sure to post pictures of the event later!
My Sister and Brother left to college. Jerome went to University of Alabama and my Sister, Gabby went to Columbia College in Missouri. I am super proud of them for going to college! I know I will miss them so much so we have to have lots of skype dates! It is hard to imagine that Samuel will be about 5 months old when they see him again. Children are a great way to see how much time has passed since you last saw each other.
My plan for now is to be a full-time mommy! I love that I get the opportunity to do this! I know so many moms have to work and they would rather stay home and be with their babies.
Well, I better go and eat something before my sweet baby wakes up and wants some food as well.
Ta ta for now!
