My Growing Baby

My Kilun is growing up too fast and I don't like it at all. I want him to stay my baby forever. I love this stage!! He's such a good and happy baby. Unless he's tired or hungry, he's always smiling. I love how he loves his brothers. Sometimes they come in the room to talk to me and he will just start laughing at them. Chaetun is so good with him. If he's crying, he'll sit down and talk to him to get him to stop. Chaetun is pretty good at getting Kilun to laugh and does it often. Xadun & Brekan also love Kilun and love to love on him as often as they can. I also love how Kilun loves me. He's really my only child that has constantly been with me. I take him everywhere with me. With the other boys, I had to leave them with a babysitter fairly early on, but now that we own the gym, I get to take him with me. If Kilun is crying, I can pick him up and he'll stop. Conversely, he can be sitting with his dad and if he sees me or hears me come in the room he'll get fussy. I'm sure he's spoiled at this point, but I don't care. I want to take in every moment of this time. It makes me sad that this could be my last baby, so I want to make sure it lasts as long as it can!

Kilun has been hitting some milestones in the last month. He finally started taking a bottle. I only started to try to give him a bottle when he was 4-5 months old. At first he wanted nothing to do with it. I bought a couple of different bottles, but he wouldn't have any of it. I decided to try a different type of formula. When I went to the store I was looking for one without iron in it because I know that must make it taste nasty. It definitely makes it smell nasty! Since all formulas have iron, I setteled on a soy. It worked! He still nurses 90% of the time, but I give him a bottle or two daily. I also finally started him on cereal (I put it off trying to make this time last longer.) He loves cereal and I know we'll have to start baby food soon.

This week he has also been a rolling machine. I can't put him on his back without him rolling over to his belly. It's fun to watch, but he gets so flustered that he doesn't know how to get back to his back. He CAN turn on his back, he has done it since he was 2 or 3 months old, but now he has to remember how to do it. This just means he will be rolling all over and then crawling all too soon :(

Kilun got a bumbo for Christmas. While it's nice for me to be able to put him in whe I need to get something done, it's not really his favorite place. He likes to arch his back to try to get out of it. Just today he fell out twice while I was trying to clean up the kitchen :s Really, a lot of it is just that spoiled thing, and he just wants to be held. He doesn't like to lay down too much anymore and is really working on those stomach muscles to sit himself up. I don't think it will be too long until he can sit up on his own. Another :(

Oh MY GOSH. I love how when people are being rude they can't even own up to it by posting as themselves. People are so unbelieveable. To anonymous: Didn't your mother ever teach you that if you don't have something nice to say then don't say anything at all? What have you accomplished by being so mean?

I can read your blog just fine, Melissa. And I love your kids unique names.

Now... back to what I was going to say before I saw that rude comment...

HOLY COW I can't believe how big Kilun is!!!! You haven't posted pics since he came home from the NICU I think. I had to stop and count... he's almost 6 months old!!!!! It seems like he should be 2 or 3 months old. Where did the time go?


Morgan said...

Dear Anonymous!!! You are not nice. I love the childrens names. And way to hide behind "anonymous." Get a life and grow a pair.

Anyway, Melissa!! I can't believe how big he is!!! Seriously, where did your baby go? Your kids are as cute as ever.

Well I'm just glad that comment got deleted before I saw it.

Melissa he is getting so big! He's adorable! He's close to the same age as Jayden and I feel the same way. He is growing up far too fast and I want him to stay my baby!

Wow, I didn't see the comment but clearly I didn't miss anything of true importance. I'm sorry that someone was unkind to you Melissa. I was coming on here to comment about how adorable Kilun is - he's so big! Time just flies! And btw, I think your kids' names are perfect. :)

I can't believe how fast time fly's. It's really not fair is it?? He is growing so fast and yet he still looks tiny when I look at my 18 month old, then it really hits me how fast time fly's. He is so stinking CUTE!!! (your guy) I know about spoiling, that's how I feel about my guy Ty. He is our last (as far as I'm concerned) and I want to enjoy every minute also.
