Considering I had to run upstairs and grab the camera, it's kind of amazing I captured it!

Baby kisses are the best! All slobbery and unfocused :o)

Definitely! And he loves when we "nom" on him. He's not quite teething yet but has started trying to nibble on things, which is how this little yin-yang moment happened.

Have you got an amber teething necklace for him? I have one for my youngest daughter and now for wee man. So many people swear by them and certainly my daughter loves hers. Combine that with chamomilla granules (homeopathic remedy) and none of mine have suffered immensely with teething, even though it's clearly had the potential to. I tried a few other remedies and that was what worked best by a mile.

Of course, you could be lucky and have a baby who sails through teething - my oldest daughter never seemed to be massively troubled by it.

Thanks for the information. I'd never heard of amber teething necklaces before!

LoL That's adorable!

So glad I got the camera in time!

LOL, a cute memory to be sure. Gotta remember to bring out pics like these when the boy is dating. I must regail one of my most embarrassing moments in my journal.
Sep. 7th, 2010 03:37 pm (UTC)
It might embarrass him, but I think it would make his date say, "Awwww! How cute!"
Sep. 7th, 2010 06:24 pm (UTC)
All to true. Right about that.

Adorable! Babies taste great! Mine always used to love to be 'nommed' as well, and I have many happy memories of eating their feet and their bellies....how the heck did they get so big?!

He looks like a wonderfully happy little tyke, and his daddy looks just as happy. And those dimpled little arms....

He's been working hard on growing those arms. After all, eating and learning are his "jobs" right now, right? He works 24/7! He has his sad moments, but it's easy to make him smile much of the time now, at least during the day.

They do work hard on getting fat, don't they? I remember James at five months - he had dimples on his dimples, he was so chubby, and every ounce of him had been breastfed. I was delirious with pride over his tubby little body, which five months previously had been born so close to death. Now he was insatiable and I rarely bothered to put a top on as it was a hot, non-air conditioned summer! And he was cheerful - either eating, sleeping, or cuddled into my arms, what was there to be miserable about?

Sheesh, I'm just remembering. There were two months when he cried every evening from 7 p.m. till 11:30 p.m. straight. Nothing would calm him, even for a moment. Colic. The land of hell. Be glad you didn't have a colicky baby.

I didn't know you'd had such a rough time with James. Must have been a relief to see him thrive.

In our case, we faced constant testing due to my age (40 tomorrow!), which tends to instill paranoia. So every time he hits a development milestone on time or early, I rejoice!

I didn't tell you I'd had a rough time with James; I don't believe in telling expectant mothers horror stories about pregnancies. But yes, James was a pregnancy nightmare. I had a placental abruption that started small but grew big - I started bleeding when I was 22 weeks along and they delivered him at 30.5 weeks, by which time I'd been in hospital on and off for nearly two months with my feet up and on total bedrest. Luckily we lived in the same city as the McMaster Medical Centre, which had [and may still have] the best neonatal intensive care unit in North America - it shared that honour with Johns Hopkins, and I was delivering him at McMaster anyway; I just got switched from midwife care to a high-risk team. His lungs weren't mature when he was delivered but my amniotic fluid had almost completely dried up so they had to take him out. I was told that the chances of a stillbirth were high. He survived and had several surgeries and is now 6'3" tall, broad-shouldered, good-looking, and is making dinner in the kitchen while listening to some truly horrible heavy metal music. There are happy endings and that's the happiest ending that I've ever had in my life.

I'm glad everything worked out well for KFP. My brother's wife was 43 when she had William and he's as bright as beans so I know that it can all work out beautifully, and hope the same for you! He certainly looks happy and bright and chubby which is what you're looking for in a baby of that age. He's also gorgeous, which is a bonus.

Oh, I love hearing stories that turn out well. Your son sounds wonderful, and I'm sure you're very proud of him! I just know that even when KFP is over 6 feet tall some day, he'll still be my little Kung Fu Panda!

You're right, though, it's probably best I didn't hear that while I was pregnant.

I should add, a very happy birthday one day in advance. I'm working tomorrow so I won't be around to give you wishes then! May you have a wonderful birthday - it's so much better when you have a little one to share your big day with! Babies look very cute if you put ribbons from your packages on their heads. Happy day!
Love from Allie.
