An Introduction to Baby PGS

I know, I know, it's been forever and a day since I updated this thing. But here's the super quick update: February 23, 2012 at 9:36 AM Eastern, Baby S. was born. He was 20.5" and weighed a whopping 7 lbs, 15.7 oz (they just rounded up to 8.0 even). I was induced for pre-eclampsia, so he was born at 38 weeks, 1 day gestation. Not the full 40+ weeks of the average first time mom, but he was still full term and healthy. Healthy is the key word and most important. Baby PGS, as he will from here on out be known, was a nursing champ from the get-go. Seriously, his latch was perfect from birth, his nurses joked that he should teach their breastfeeding course. So in that sense, I've been pretty lucky as far as breastfeeding goes. Don't get me wrong, it has had its little bumps in the road here and there, but in comparison to a few of my friends, he and I have had it easy. Fast forward to today, he is 20 lb, 27" happy baby. Okay, he's as happy as a teething five and a half month can be. Most days, he's smiley all day long. But the last couple of weeks, the teething must be really bothering him because he gets really fussy and doesn't sleep well anymore. But for the most part, his amber necklace seems to be doing its job. I think in the evenings when he gets really fussy, I may have to give him some Tylenol. I hate giving him medicine because I don't want to overdose him, y'know? I think the only reason he gets fussier and pulls at his lower jaw so much in the evenings is that he's tired and the distractions from the pain that work earlier in the day don't work as well then. Sorry to anyone expecting to see photos of my little man. I won't be posting them. So unfortunately, you won't be seeing just how freaking cute my little man is! I can post this Instagram though. You'll just have to guess how cute he is. :P
