Axel has four teeth now. His top ones are ridiculously adorable which is good because they gave us a lot of trouble. Night time has been rough this month. I was hoping it would get better once those teeth came in, but it really hasn't. He wants to nurse all night long and gets really upset when I don't let that happen. He scratched his face last night pretty bad in a rage while I took a break from middle-of-the-night nursing. I didn't realize it happened until this morning and quickly cut his one jagged little fingernail.
His new favorite thing is to shake his head "no" while eating to evade the spoon. He thinks it is hilarious, and we think so too. Feeding him is sometimes difficult because of his game though. Axel knows that I am "mom" and often says it now to me. He woke up really early once this month and Jeremy tried to cuddle him back to sleep. Axel looked at me with a worried look on his face and screamed "mom!". It was really funny. He also says "da" for both dad and for the dogs.
Axel still hates bottles although he is better about drinking one or two ounces from them when I have to be away. He hasn't really figured out sippy cups yet and has no desire to try. This one might be nursing forever.
See how much he has grown!
