So, Jay Alvin has been an amazingly good baby with one exception: He has the hardest time with tummy aches after he eats. We've started calling gas drops "dessert" because he has them after every meal. Several people told me that I should try giving up dairy. (Um, kill me now.) After several days of screaming baby I decided to give it a try. Well, it's been two days and . . . it seems to be working. (Huge sad face from me.) I'm super grateful, but also wondering why (after I already sacrificed 9 months of my life, my body, and went through a lot of pain to get him here) I have to sacrifice one of my favorite things in the world. Do you realize that no milk means no yogurt, cottage cheese, cheese, milk and, worst of all, no ice cream?!?!? What am I going to do without ice cream? Yeah, I don't know either. It's a good thing I love this little boy. (How could I not? Look at that cute face.)
Leo is turning into quite a good little helper. He loves giving Jay Alvin a bottle, throwing his diapers away (something we could never get him to do with his own diapers), and helping to burp him. I'm pretty sure the burping is his favorite because he's allowed to hit Jay Alvin without getting into trouble.
I decided that living away from family when you have a baby rocks because then your mom comes and stays with you for 2 1/2 weeks. She's been an absolute lifesaver! Especially since we all have colds right now. I'm pretty sure I would be dead by now if she wasn't around to let me get some sleep. She's the best!
We were a little worried that we wouldn't have as many pictures of Jay Alvin as we have of Leo. I don't think it's going to be a problem though. :)
