So the last two nights have been a whole new type of experience. There's been a LOT of fun and smiles, but we are SO VERY thankfully that we've had Grandma Lynn here to run some errands, help out with meals and the house, and most importantly step in with some MUCH needed relief when the little guy is just wearing us out. We're hoping to finally get him to be more active during the day and sleep longer between feedings during the night (instead of his nocturnal creature schedule that he has going right now because the kid seems to only poop and pee in the middle of the night and wants to wake Mommy up every hour or two), but I guess we'll just have to be patient for at least a few days.
I also made my first rookie Dad mistake at home and got pee all over the couch. I was changing the little guy and left him without a diaper for about a minute and he ended up deciding that he wasn't done. He scared the living daylights out of himself and startled Dad as well. I guess that the good thing that came out of it was that all of the couch cushions are looking a lot cleaner since the experience prompted a much needed washing of the covers, but I hope that I've learned that lesson and that we won't have to repeat the experience.
And to finally wrap up the post, you can check out the latest batch of pictures on the Picasa Web Album or on Facebook,or here's some videos that we made of the little guy in action.
