Last week MBC Action showed Lost for the first time... and since I've heard so many positive things about this series, I decided to give it a try. And whatta ya know.... I LOVED it! So... instead of waiting each week for a new episode and instead of having to deal w/ endless commercials, we decided to rent the DVDs. We're now on Season 2 and still loving it.
I spend most of my days here in the bedroom with the baby. I don't feel comfortable leaving him alone and since I don't have a monitor yet, and since I'm concerned about SIDS, I don't do much of anything except play and talk with him, watch him sleep (which is soooo enjoyable... who would have ever thought that watching a baby sleep could bring such joy!!) watch TV, listen to music, get on the net (sometimes)... and read. So... needless to say, when the baby is sleeping, there's some free time to enjoy it.
I've heard or read that they constantly kill off characters, and it must be true. So far, they've killed off several.
Do any of you watch this? I still haven't figured out what the big thing is in the forest that sounds like a dinosaur. I'm thinking it's some type of huge robot that protects the island... and I still haven't figured out what's up w/ the "others"... but I'm thinking they're part of this island experiment... maybe from the same group of scientists that put that guy down in the hatch... not sure though. I still haven't figured out why they steal away children.
It's very intriguing and I'm really hooked on it.
The baby is doing good. He has a lot of gas and cries a lot from it. It's heartbreaking to see him in such pain, especially when the only thing I can do is try and comfort him, which is really hard to do when he's in such pain. I do all the massaging ... and even pull his legs up to his belly, but usually it doesn't really help. I also try laying him on his stomach to relieve the pain, but at this stage, he only cries from not wanting to be like that. We've tried switching his formula but it hasn't helped. The dr. says not to worry that it'll pass.... which I hope happens sooner rather than later. It hurts him so much and hurts me even more.
His little eyebrows have come in and they give such personality to his face! His eyes haven't changed color yet but I do see another color coming in... and it sorta looks brown, but not sure. His eyes are focusing on things now, and when I call to him, he'll turn his head to look towards me. Can't tell ya what a feeling that gives to me! He's such a sweetheart... and even for a baby that is only a little over a month, he's already terribly spoiled. But have you ever heard - spare the rod, spoil the child? I think that's it... but not sure. Either way, I agree.
I have had ppl tell me not to hold him so much and not to let him fall asleep on me... which I understand... but, I will say this, I've seen some kids that weren't held when they were babies and I think I'd rather give that love to my child. I love having him fall asleep on me. I know I'll probably think differently when he gets older, but ... I'm not sure. I can see myself not having any probs w/ that even. Since we're only planning to have one child... I'd rather give him all of the love he can stand and not worry about later. So what if he desires to fall asleep on mommy!!?? But hey, he has me wrapped around his little pinkie already... so how can I say no! :)
