So, as some of you may know, I am starting a new job next week. But before I do I am taking a week off between jobs to spend time with my little buddy. So, here we are on the floor – Ben doing tummy time and really trying to roll over for the first time and me cheering him on and posting here (in an attempt to cover my sins of the past).
Some things learned during guy time:
- When Benjamin does not want to eat, no amount of logic or debating skills will convince him otherwise. He is stubborn!
- The best way to get Ben to smile is to roughhouse – something that does not come naturally to a dad who has seen his son hooked up to a million things in the NICU. But throwing him in the air, play biting his cheeks and pretending there is an earthquake makes him laugh and smile every time.
- Trying to fit in a bath, a diaper change and a feeding while alone and Amy is at the store only ends with diapers everywhere, bath soap all over the floor and tears – so many tears.
