I’ve been wanting to post this for about two weeks, but I haven’t had time, what with moving and all.
Duplo is an amazingly good baby. He sleeps well most nights, nurses like a pro since day one, and is generally easy going when he’s awake. He likes to lie on the floor or in his swing and just look around. He doesn’t complain much when Lego smothers him with love, sometimes literally. After the first week, I haven’t had any problems with him wanting to be awake at night; he just nurses quickly and gets back to sleep.
My only complaint is that this kid poops way too much. I am so sick of changing poopy diapers. The hospital told me to worry if he had less than four a day after day four of life. I think I’ve changed eight so far since Lego went to bed last night at 9:00. Yuck.
Anyway, back to singing his praises. I love how pleasant and content he looks a lot of the time when he’s awake. He has this almost-smiling expression that just makes me melt. I may or may not have seen a couple of smiles too. It’s so nice having a baby this easy. I don’t know what I would do with a difficult baby at this extremely stressful time of my life. I’m thinking maybe Duplo was a gift from God to us at this time of our lives. Maybe He knew we’d have enough challenges in the next year and gave us a little boy who is simply a blessing. 🙂
