The boys are still doing well. Today's tantrums were a bit more, but I'm trying my best to be compassionate toward him but still be firm so he knows what's allowed and what's not. I don't know how Squirt sleeps through the screaming, though!
I'm still not happy about the amount of tv being shown, but sometimes I just need a distraction for him. I would play with him but that interests him for about 2.5 seconds. And apparently (as I learned yesterday) I'm not supposed to color with him. He threw a FIT! *shrug* who knew? lol
It's pouring; it feels nice to have the A/C off and the doors open. Global warming, my butt. And I'm not complaining; I love this 80 degree weather in July!!!
Oh! In case I forgot to tell you (and I think I did), we decided not to have me nurse Squirt. He wasn't latching on AT ALL at home; it was killing me. And I was just getting so stressed out and really just not enjoying any of it. I talked to a nurse who suggested supplementing with formula, but then she said "you should be enjoying him" and I realized: I wasn't. At all. And I'm mean when I get frustrated that badly; poor Big A!! I don't like being that mean to him when he doesn't deserve it (and he never has deserved it). I was the same way when I tried to nurse Moose. And so we gave Squirt a bottle and he was like in a comatose state - just relaxed and sleepy and content. Beautiful. Big A said, "I'm sold." The cost sucks but I think we agree that my sanity is more important. And, having been through 2 days alone already, I would have been SO stressed out both days and just would not have had fun at all. So I'm pleased and I don't have any guilt over it at all. It's what's best for my family. :)
Edit: I got a warning from Facebook saying that I put up a picture that violated their terms of publishing. I'm fairly sure it's a nude picture of Squirt right after birth (covered in all the yuckies). That means someone complained about that. Who would be offended by that? I am pretty sure I have or had a picture (or a friend does) of Moose right after birth & so do a lot of my friends who have youngsters. Ugh.
