39 weeks and diapers suck

Superbaby is 39 weeks old and a couple days today. Hard to believe that this little miracle of ours is going to be 9 months old next week!

About two weeks ago he started HATING having his diaper and clothes changed. I mean like a tantrum kind of hate. Its not every time, but at least twice a day I have to fight him to do it. WTF? Is it his "personality" coming out? Is it that he getting more independant, or wants to be? Did this happen to you? What did you do?

Four teeth coming in on the top, could be teething moodiness, although he seems to be doing ok with his teeth. I don't know.

We call him little monkey cause this boy climbs everything! When he's sitting up and then pulls himself up onto something he sits back down on floor. Like he is trying to getting down smooth, too cute. He is balancing himself well too, sticking an arm out once in awhile, walking is on the way huh?

Anyway just a quick update and please if this diaper/clothes thing happen to you , help me out...

Peace & love...

37+ weeks

Just got back from 10 days in our favorite Red Sea/Sinai pennisula destination, Dahab. So relaxing man!

Superbaby took his first dip in the Red Sea and really liked it. I was surprised as he usually does not like bath time, but I think this trip cured him entirely of that. Came home bathed without fuss, yeah! We hope he will be a little fish as we love water so much and want him to enjoy it too. He's off to a good start I guess.

What a difference 10 days makes. I mean Superbaby REALLY changed alot in those 10 days and we are amazed. I mean he changes so much at this age each week, but this time we really saw alot of new things. On our 15th anniversary he crawled on his knees. Then a few days later he was standing himself up against anything he could find. This boy wants to walk! I think he will be an early walker.

He has four teeth coming in on the top, two front and the two next to them. He is teething au naturel, we are not giving him anything and he's doing ok. Fussy some days more than other, but all in all he's good.

He is making tons of noises. He screams, not screams, but growls I guess, to get our attention. He still grunts when eating sometimes and is a total trip! His personality is coming out more and more every day. We are in for some real fun with this little man.

Food. No problems He likes everything I give him and I've been letting him taste little bites of many things. Thing is, is he getting enough? He still BF's on demand and eats when we do. He eats veggies and fruits mostly with a few tiny spoons of our food sometimes to taste. He seems to be gaining weight and is growing so I think we're all good. I read so many different feeding scenarios online and all babie are different, so I think I will wait until later this month when we take him to doctor for polio booster and see his weight.

Hey what about dry skin on his scalp, cradle cap? He still has a bunch on top and it seems like it doesn't want to go away. It doesn't look too bad but how do i get it get it off? There is only a small part still flaking but the rest is not flaking anymore, but still there???

Other than that we are still so unbelievgably grateful that he's here and that will never go away. What an amazing gift this happy little boy is. He's a keeper.
