2u2 Tuesday



How old are they?

A. Austin - 4 months 3 weeks and 2 day
B. Allyson - 21 months 

What activities are going on this week? Grocery shopping.. I still need to make a list and find to go. Bunco and pizza on Friday! 

What challenges are we dealing with this week? Austin got his 4 month shots yesterday which really has him messed up. Poor guy is super clingy  and will only sleep on or right next to me. Last night I slept on the air mattress with him and you would have thought I was going to get more sleep than I have in the past few nights, right? Nope. Austin wanted to be snuggled so close and I was afraid of him getting to warm so I slept without a blanket or sheet on me and well I can't sleep without a blanket or a sheet on me. He did only wake up one time to eat which was a nice little break. 

Any milestones reached this week?

A. Austin -  He's been pushing his chest off the ground when he's on his belly. He's also using his legs more to scoot but he's not scooting around be he moves just a few inches ... if that made any sense. Crawling may be in our very near future. 

B. Allyson - I'm seeing a teeny tiny light at the end of the picky eating tunnel. She now will eat fish sticks, of all things. She's eating more than just bananas and yogurt. She can also listen and obey directions. We ask her to  put away or get her shoes and she will. She helps clean up.  My *favorite* thing she does? When I say ok let's go get Sissy she will run and get her shoes and sit by the door. Then when I open the door she will hop up into her spot in the stroller and the whole way to school say Sissy? Sissy? and then when she sees Aubrey the biggest smiles comes over her face SISSY!! My heart just melts!!

How are you feeling about having 2u2 at this point?

Likes: I love the little ways that Allyson helps out. In the car if Austin is whining/crying she will "Shh" him. If we are at home she will shove his paci in his mouth. She plays with him and puts more toys in his face and he just sits there like a good sport and takes it with a toothless grin. I love it. She will sit on the couch and pat her chest and that mean that she wants to hold him. She holds him for a hot second before she shoves him off but she wants him. I love that she's doing so well with him.

Dislikes: I have my days. Lately it's been tough. The lack of sleep that Austin is giving me is making it hard during the day. I wish I could just nap after dropping off Aubrey but I can't because my little hurricane is running around the house. What about napping while she naps? You better believe I nap when she does but usually Austin is just waking up as Allyson goes down. No matter how hard I try I can't get them on the same schedule.
