Here are some really recent pics of Toren since it's been a while.
I swear every morning when I wake up it looks to me like Toren has grown a little bigger. I can actually see it first hand, day by day. He is still very clingy. I prefer to refer to him as my "bitty baby" since he prefers to nurse every minute he's awake. He likes his bouncy chair (in 15 minute spurts) and his swing now, so I am able to get a few more things accomplished each day. I tried my Moby wrap and like the bouncy chair, he seems to enjoy it for about 15 minutes then gets fussy. I'm not really sure what the hype is about the Moby wrap. It gets really hot... Toren feels like he is trapped in a little furnace hot pocket. I'm assuming that's why he starts throwing a fit after 15 mins. I think something like the Ergo would be more up my alley. I wish I had one already.. they are so expensive!
I want to say being a mom is amazing. Challenging! But the most amazing feeling I've ever felt. Sunday morning I woke up to Toren in my arms, sprawled out across my chest sleep nursing (sometimes it's the only way he will sleep more than an hour) and DH with his arm around my waist and his head pressed against my shoulder. I laid there enjoying that moment for nearly an hour before getting up to go potty and change Toren's diaper. It was the most amazing feeling laying there with my boys. My heart aches for Clyde, but it is overflowing with love for my children and my DH. I've wanted this feeling for so long and although things haven't gone exactly how I would have hoped for, I feel so proud and uplifted. I have my Toren and he is amazing and I have a special little boy watching over me. My days aren't so lonely and my nights aren't so gloomy now.
This little light of mine I'm going to let it shine...
Thank you ladies He does seem to be a thinker. He's very observant and always makes his little serious face. I wonder if he will keep that trait or grow out of it. DH says he gets his seriousness from me... lol
Let me just say how happy I am for you. I love seeing your updates. And I love seeing his precious pictures!! he is so adorable and I'm so happy that you have him. Enjoy every minute it does go by way too fast.
Jacob was alot like Toren. He wanted to nurse all day long and if he wasn't nursing he was crying. We had some very hard days but looking back on it now I wouldn't have changed a thing.
