‘S Wonderful, ‘S Marvelous

Three and a half months in, breastfeeding is finally getting easier. I had a hard time with the other two kids too, but it wasn’t this difficult for this long. I filled a prescription for APNO when Calvin seven weeks old and that helped somewhat. Ibuprofin helped too, and while I did take the maximum recommended dosage every day for longer than I’d wanted to, I haven’t needed any for a couple of weeks now. Plus I haven’t cried from the pain lately, so there’s that. Hooray?

“I don’t think I realized how much I would just be sitting on the couch.”

“Pinned to it.”

“Yes.”

The soundtrack to these sessions as of late has been Funny Girl, Funny Face, and RuPaul’s Drag Race. I now find myself wanting Barbara Streisand’s hair, wishing I had seen more of Paris, and feeling like my natural lashes are woefully inadequate. I’ve been watching a lot of Bob’s Burgers too, sometimes with Eleanor, which leads to her singing things like this.

Little babies! *kiss kiss*

He’s looking up at his mama, two months in a row. That’s where I stand — just out of frame — taking these photos with my camera remote. It’s good to be nearby while he’s still so little!

(I’ll be taking a photo of Calvin sitting in the Eames rocker and wearing his pin each month until he’s two years old. I also took monthly photos of his sister, Eleanor, and his brother, August.)

There’s the smiley baby we know around here! Such a difference from last months picture. Also? Hobbes! Watterson never licensed the characters but we did find a stuffed tiger that bears a striking resemblance, so we had to pick it up for our little Calvin.
