My little guy is growing so fast! He is getting to be more playful now, and really enjoys some of his toys. Especially his butterfly or octopus rattle- he loves to just look at the "face" on it. Some other recent happenings and fun stories:
- We had been giving Anu baths in his little baby tub set on the bathroom floor. But lately he kept kicking his legs and splashing water everywhere, so I thought maybe it was time to try bathing him in the big tub with me. I got the tub ready and DH brought me the baby, then got in to help soap him up. Anu was really enjoying it, and then when DH was washing his hair, he turned around toward me and decided to help himself to a little snack. lol! It was soo cute, DH couldn't help to get out and grab the camera. However, not it seems Anu likes to make a habit of it, and will start sucking then flash this huge grin like he's being so sneaky.
- A couple weeks ago we took our first big trip to Oklahoma to visit the family. The plane ride there went very well since it was Anu's bedtime, so he slept the whole way until we landed. However, my parents were there to meet us at the airport and they were so excited to see the baby that, well, they overstimulated him a little so he was really cranky at first lol! But all in all, the trip was good. Everybody really enjoyed seeing and playing with the baby, and I think he really really enjoyed interactions with his Grandpa and his cousin. And with all the busy happenings with my sister's wedding, I really think the trip helped us to become more confident as parents and make me less nervous to take him out in public.
- Since the trip, we are dealing with a couple issues. I had been on a dairy-free diet due to Anu's gas, but in OK I decided to cheat and was eating some ice cream and some other creamy comfort foods. Well the next day his poop turned green and it's been green ever since. Even now that I'm dairy-free again. I might need to talk to the doctor about it when we go for his next shots on Tuesday. Also, the weather in OK was soooooo hot compared to here; I forgot just how hot it gets there! I've been so spoiled with our 70 degree summers, we were so miserable in the 100+ dry heat. As soon as we came back to LA, Anu has gotten a little bit of runny nose and cough, probably due to the extreme weather changes :(
