For those who have met my twins you will agree that Kyle is a "handful" ...and that's being polite.
A friend said to me a few weeks ago as she was trying to settle him down..
"he's just not a "happy" baby is he?"
That statement bothered me. He has a clean bottom, he's well rested and he was drinking plenty of milk and rice cereal...so why is he unhappy? Maybe I just have a fussy baby....so I shelved the comment and carried on with the daily grind of fussy Kyle.
And then it happened...the lightbulb came on one day as I was eating breakfast. I placed Kyle in the bumbo on the table and he watched me eat. Not only did he watch, he stared, fixated on the spoon, the bowl, the food, my lips. HE WAS SMACKIN HIS LIPS!
My baby was starving!!!!
A quick dash to the store for a jar of sweet potatoes and applesauce. HE GOBBLED IT UP.
It's been over a week now and I can assure you, he is a new child. He's happy, smiley and sleeping better. Tim even commented the other day how nice it is to see Kyle so happy.
I am such a Type A gal, I could not get past the fact that he was still too young (5 months) to have more solids. His brother is content with milk...his brother is happy and sleeps well. Note to self: while they may have been born the same day, they are already completely different babies, and will likely be their entire lives. STOP COMPARING THEM CHERYL.
Ok, lecture to self is done.
