Trying something new

So my last post was about Mingli’s nighttime sleeping patterns.  He is in a pretty regular sleeping pattern, waking up at about the same time every night to be fed, and about the same time each morning.   238 more words

Sleeping

So Mingli has always been a good sleeper.  For the past few weeks we have had a nice sleep routine down.  Kaanas goes to work at 10 at night, so after he leaves I feed Mingli and then we go lay down and go to sleep.   136 more words

Being someone's whole world

Recently I have realized that I am Mingli’s whole world.  Right now I am his source of food, love, warmth, comfort, safety, and many more things.   209 more words

Self soothing

I have never believed in letting babies cry.  I don’t think parents who choose to do it are bad parents, it is just not something I ever wanted to do with my children.   185 more words

Found some toys he is interested in

So a few days ago I posted about how I tried to use some of the toys I have to play with Mingli, and it made him cry.   113 more words

Apologizing for my baby

Today I had my postpartum doctor’s appointment.  My doctor is about 30 minutes away from where Kaanas and I live, and since Ovin lives in the same town as my doctor we decided to visit him while we were there to save us a trip.   321 more words

The most magical sound

I have discovered a new favorite sound, Mingli’s laughter.  I have heard him laughing twice now, both times just briefly, and while he was sleeping.  The first time he was laying in the living room while I was cleaning the kitchen (they are connected, so I was still actually in the same room as him), and the second was just tonight, as Mingli lay sleeping on my chest while I looked at blogs.   43 more words
