Our little Talin is in the double digits...in weeks that is. He seems to be getting cuter by the day all the while staying cuddly and lovable. He is sleeping pretty darn well at night giving his mom some good 4 hour stretches every now and then and is still the champion breast feeder. Bottle feeding breast milk and pumping for his mama is going much smoother this time around. I'm keeping a good little supply stocked in the freezer so far. Forrest was rather voracious in his eating, making it hard to keep any supply, but so far Talin is living up to his mellow personality. This next Monday will bring his 2 month physical and shots...not looking forward to that one....
Sister Natalie just left yesterday and has been visiting for the last week from Massachusetts. We all loved having her here and her visit was all too quick. Forrest loved the great Aunt Nat play mate and Talin was always up for a good cuddle from his auntie.
My mom is still here, helping out so SO much. We were lucky enough to get all of us on a float down the river. Yep, ALL of us, kids included! At 9 weeks and some odd days, Talin has done his first river float. He slept like a champ in his car seat, waking for a little look around and snack before going down for another nap. It was a fun adventure to say the least. Probably not so relaxing for my mom who had the job of entertaining the Forrest boy in the drift boat, but very memorable, that's for sure!
We can't believe how quickly time is flying by. Talin is flashing smiles all the time, gaining head control by the minute it seems, and can now bat at his toys with his hands a bit, I'm sure looking forward to the day where he and his brother will do more than JUST smile at each other.... ;-)
