… don’t even get me started on the joys of having a baby use your bladder as a trampoline at 3 o’clock in the morning!
As is apparent from previous posts, this Little One has been showing off his acrobatic skills for quite some time. Initially, these activities were confined to right around bed time and first thing in the morning. Lately, however, he has been wiggling, kicking, and punching for hours and hours on end . . . I have no idea when he sleeps!
While I of course find this absolutely adorable, I also find it enormously distracting! Carrying on a conversation with a co-worker is more than a little difficult with a four (plus) pound baby bouncing back and forth across your belly. And, don’t even get me started on the joys of having a baby use your bladder as a trampoline at 3 o’clock in the morning!
All of this prolonged activity really makes me wonder what is going on in there. Is he playing? Trying to get comfortable? Exercising? Voguing? What I wouldn’t give to know . . .
In addition to being super-active, this Little One also has a distinct preference for the right side of my tummy. He never, ever hangs out on the left side, which means that my bouncing belly is also extremely lopsided, a situation that is less than ideal from an aesthetic perspective. And, forget trying to move him over – once he finds a position he likes, he is staying put, no matter what.*
All I can say is that if this little guy is half as active and willful outside the womb as he is inside, then Vik and I are going to have our hands full!
* I am pretty sure that he acquired this skill from his father, who has the ability to stay seated in his recliner for what seems like days on end, despite endless nagging encouragement from me to get up and get some work done!
