He has really big blue eyes and looks just like Gav did as a baby. His eyebrows are so blonde they're almost invisible!
The kids have nicknamed him 'Bode-ster' ("boad-ster") and 'little buddy'- so cute!
Look at that belly! I'm pretty sure he's close to 10lbs already...
The kids love to help me with him during the day and always run to 'help' him when he cries. Teag loves to come and tell me that "Bode needs me" whenever he starts to fuss- such a good sister! We took our first trip with Bode up to Trent's parents' house a few weeks ago and took him on his first hike!
I'm still adjusting to life with 3 kids and making sure everyone is happy and getting what they need. There have been a few 'incidents' - like when I was cooking and Teag tried to share her cereal with Bode during breakfast... I turned around to see her putting a piece in his mouth! We then had a long talk about how babies can't eat cereal- or any food for that matter unless mommy or daddy says its ok. And that we should never, ever put anything into Bode's mouth! There was also the day that Teag, Bode and I were picking up Gav at preschool and I was putting Bode in the car. The wind blew so hard it knocked Teag over and at the same time slammed the car door shut on Gav's hand... not a good day.
Teag is also very interested when I nurse him and asked if she could "eat from my belly too." My heart hurt for her when she asked me because I was never really able to nurse her- but I've been giving her extra snuggles and loving on her and Gav whenever I can!
Teag has a cardio appt. in the morning for the first time since Jan. so I'll update with the (hopefully good) news after that!
