Here's a video of his baby ninja moves. I call them that because he is sooo not cuddly, and he just uses his combo attack of roll, sit, and kick- off- the- wall to get what he wants. I first called him my baby ninja when he was younger and wouldn't stay in my arms when I was holding him, he was constantly turning and diving forward or back and at that time he had also started wrestling my arm with his legs when I tried to change him! It can be challenging to change a diaper, and just frustrating sometimes with him for sure! But, I actually just love to see all that he's doing at the same time! He does NOT want to be still. Ever. No cuddling, no rocking. Just put me down. I got things to do mom. :)
Here's a few more pics of what he's been up to.
The vacuum was on- not scared!

Dinner out-- on a patio!
Forgot the placemat for him...oops. So, Bryan says "can we sanitize the inside of his
mouth??" Ha, we wish.
As far as eating goes...we are doing the same- just hoping to try some higher calorie finger foods in the near future. This week he's had some trouble with throw up, so we haven't been too aggressive the last few days with new things. (New things often trigger throw up.) We've been sticking to the baby snacks and some fruit. BUT he sure did drink ONE OUNCE of water the other night in just a few minutes while I watched and then AGAIN last night! He only takes sips throughout the day, and that first day I actually forgot to offer the water so he must have been thirsty? That's kind of foreign to us because we don't have a baby that ever looks or acts hungry or thirsty. But SUCKING an ounce is a HUGE thing for him! He looked just like a pro- like he'd been sucking on a bottle this whole time. We were so proud. The feeding tube world is full of highs and lows with oral eating so we are thankful for that high this week!
Just laughing at who know what after doing the oral part of his feeding! This is when I give him some toys and we read books while we wait for the milk to finish going in. And he just had a few things to say first I guess!
