Twice today I had a complete stranger ask me "what was I feeding my baby" as if he was a circus sideshow act! I don't think Benedict is that big but was a bit surprised he weighed off the charts at his last check up! I love tickling his little chubby arms and legs and smooching his chubby cheeks! All of the kids were on the "healthy" side but my Mr. Chubs definitely has been growing by leaps and bounds. I left him alone for the first time tonight and even though it was only an hour and fifteen minutes I sure missed those chubby cheeks! I had a little St. Nicholas day shopping to do so as soon as Tony got home I scooted out door. This was a milestone for all of us!
Ok so this is a late one! I was woken up at 3am by Blaise. He couldn't sleep and then wondered why he could not get up and play! This has been going on for awhile and it makes for a rough morning. Benedict meanwhile is sleeping like a log! Role reversal here! I know this is a phase and soon shall pass and my girls sweetly remind me to offer it as a sacrifice. We placed an empty crib under our tree with hope of filling it with straw for baby Jesus! Every time a good deed is done or sacrifice made little Jesus gets more straw for a cozy manger....at this rate if Blaise continues to wake me up I am going to have a whole barn full of hay under my tree!
