Strange Day

Today has been a strange day. Jack has been a strange baby. We had his 4 month appointment yesturday (he weights 14 pounds 8 ounces and is 25 inches long, in the exact fiftieth percentile for everything) and got his shots. Yesturday he was slightly grouchy from the shots, but today he has just been strange.

Jack is normally a baby who enjoys much attention. He loves his Daddy or I to be dedicated to him alot. He wants us to play with him, sing to him, throw him around and entertain him in general. He's pretty good at playing on his own for half an hour or so, but other than that wants to be playing, standing and laughing with us.

Today he neither wants to play with us, nor on his own. He is the cuddliest baby in cuddle town. All he's done since he woke up today is cuddle and sleep and sleep and cuddle. He's just so clingy I've barely put him down all day. At first, I was annoyed. There were so many things I wanted to do today and clingatron baby was not helping. Then I realized, there is going to come a day soon that my baby will not be a baby anymore and will be a toddler, or a boy who doesn't not want to cuddle his Mommy so I better enjoy it now. So I sat down in the glider and spent my day cuddling my baby and it has been a day well spent.

Mikey was the same way after his 2 month shots. I bet he'll be like that after his 4 month ones too.
