Today was an exciting day for THIS new Mommy!!
It started at 3:00 am when I was awakened by Hunter's cry. That is when it dawned on me that my little man had slept through FIVE consecutive hours of the night. Holy smokes! That is the longest he's gone yet and I have to admit, I woke up repeatedly before he did--pretty much scaring myself awake--to check and make sure the baby was still breathing and alive.
I just couldn't believe he was still sleeping!
Aren't those lips to die for? He is going to wow all the girls someday, my little man!!
After nursing at three in the morning, Hunter fell back asleep--for another THREE straight hours! Go, baby boy! Needless to say, Mommy and Daddy got some fantastic sleep last night.
After kind of a hectic, stressful morning (Hunter has been suffering from some unbearable gas, and spitting up, the past couple of days and it's made him a VERY cranky boy) I finally got out and on the road. I was heading over to my friend, Angel's, to borrow her breast pump (up until this point, I've been renting one from the hospital) and she made us coffee and lunch. I had an awesome time visiting, exchanging baby stories (she has three kids) and just catching up.
At one point, Angel asked if we'd done any tummy time with Hunter yet. We have only done it once or twice, and kinda leaned him on the boppy.
So today, we put him flat on his belly on the floor and to Angel's surprise, little Hunter lifted his head completely up and off the floor.
I keep tellign people how strong he is--that he holds his head, yes wobbily but still, up on his own and that he has already rolled over onto his side--but I think most people believe me to be exaggerating, the eager new Mommy.
Heh. Well, this time I had a witness.
He completely lifted his head AND legs up off the floor here. (He's crying cuz turns out he had an incredibly dirty diaper at the same time! LOL)
After that, he promptly rolled over to his left side and then, almost as if he decided he didn't like the view, Hunter completely reversed and rolled to his right side..and then COMPLETELY rolled over!!!
Thankfully Angel had her camera out already and was busily snapping pictures while we cheered him on.
Holy crap, Mom! WHAT just happened???
I am so proud of my big boy!!! I swear my love for my son grows more and more every day.
