I do want to check in here with some Teddy love. The kid is almost three months old and I love him so much! I was looking at him asleep in my arms tonight and remembering when Cal and Clark were at this phase, but how different it is with Teddy. It's definitely easier this time, especially in the middle of the night. With Cal and Clark, nighttime feedings involved me nursing one boy and Brian bottle-feeding the other boy; it was quite a production. We had to feed them more often than Teddy for awhile because they were so much smaller than he was. But with the twins, it seemed like a lot of things were a chore. We had to quickly and efficiently get them fed, dressed, diapers changed, bathed, etc. I know that I liked it and I liked the baby phase, but looking back I don't think I enjoyed it as much as I do with Teddy. I can savor it more. I can give him a bath and I don't have to think about going quickly to get to the next boy or to keep them on schedule. I can take my time and play with him more. This month it has been such a delight to start interacting with him more. He smiles and coos and nearly giggles. He gets concerned and furrows his brow. He gets excited and moves all over the place as fast as he can. He sticks his tongue out. I am in love with this little guy.
Here are some of my favorite pictures from the past few weeks. I think I've already used some of these but...oh well.
