I have slightly progressed from month one (somehonestwriting.wordpress.com/2014/08/28/while-he-sleeps/) where I endlessly looked at Bunny while he slept.
You must have noticed now I am actually actively blogging. For the first time in my blogging history I have unpublished posts lying in my drafts.
As far as bunny is concerned I have become obsessed with the following:
Trimming his finger and toe nails, which grows at lightening speed, I would have never thought babies nails grow so fast. At an average finger nails required trimming over in every four to five days or when you start noticing fresh scratches on baby’s face.
Cleaning his ears, just the external part with a ear bid dipped in oil, also the portion behind his ears.
Wiping the milk particles gathered around his neck folds.
Checking the space between his fingers where cloth particles usually sticks.
Cleaning other skin folds also, specially on thighs. Actually all the cleaning is necessary because as per his doc instruction we have still not started using any soap, body wash, talcum, baby lotion or anything else.We just give him a coconut oil massage and bath him in luke warm water. I believe the remnants of oil attracts dirt.
Parting his hair in funny ways and laughing alone at my creations.
Kissing him on cheeks, I thought of avoiding it but I have no control.
Playing with his fingers, making him hold my finger or his soft quilt.
Checking any signs when he wants to eliminate. Remember me mentioning elimination communication? It is this.
Whatsapping with friends.
Checking on TBH because he has been travelling quite a lot.
This would be continued as and when I find new ways to keep myself occupied when Bunny sleeps.
P.S did you notice where TBH landed in my list of priorities? My mother warned this might happen after a baby asking me of not let this happen. I conveniently ignored knowing I am too much in love with TBH to let this happen. But here I am checking on him when I have time, happily agreeing when he asks if he can sleep in other room as he has work to finish, missing him less and less when he is travelling. Need to seriously work on this.
