In college, I had four really close friends. We would hang out, eat, study, and party together. Cassandra was the leader, she made sure we all made it back from parties and we weren’t dancing naked on top of bars. Abby was encouraging us to dance naked on bars. Camille was our fashion guru, she could coordinate everything, and Meg would be the one mixing up our next shots in lab beakers for the highest alcohol content. Staying up for like 48 hours was no biggie. Now? I would have better luck winning the lottery. BooBear seems to have this uncanny ability to know when I am just about to fall asleep that’s when he wakes up and starts making noise. Before he was born I would be shocked at people’s posts on Facebook where they joke about putting whiskey in their kid’s bottle or slip them some infant Benadryl to get them to go to sleep. Me? I’m checking on what would be a normal dose for shifter babies. Doc Clayboure was not amused at my inquires. And if he ever reads this no Felix doesn’t count, you can fuck him into submission, BooBear just stares at me grinning as if to say “What are we doing next Mama?”
I’m still off of caffeine since I am trying to breastfeed, this kid has me on lockdown! But seriously, any shifter parents out there, that “happen” to know how much Benadryl to give to a baby bear shifter, message me on Facebook.

I continue to observe my little darling around the clock. He has to be the cutest baby I have ever seen, of course I could be a little biased. That being said, I have decided to start keeping track of his daily habits. Ma has said that his development is normal for shifter babies but I’m not convinced.
Wednesday- I read and re-read What to Expect The First Year. I decided to use the book as fire starting material. It is absolutely useless. For example. A human 1 month old will be able to turn its head but not be able to support their head upright. My little BooBear is already pushing himself up and looking around. He freaks Aleks out. Aleks says that the baby’s eyes follow him everywhere as if stalking him. *Insert eye roll here*. BooBear growls all the time now. At first Aleks was strutting around here like a proud Papa, now he’s getting concerned that the baby only seems to growl when Aleks gets close to me. **snicker**
Thursday- We had a play date with baby Lucian. Liam and Aleks were bragging the boys up to each other with Kent interjecting every now and then, which left Sebastian and me playing with the babies. Let me tell you baby toys are boring. I am going to invent more complicated toys for the boys. I swear BooBear just looked at me with the expression that clearly said “This is beneath me!”
Later that morning I almost peed my pants when Liam and Aleks came over, BooBear started growling at Aleks but then a second later was cooing up at Liam. Of course Liam played that up to the hilt. Thank God Liam was holding Lucian at the time. The family room really is too small for them to be rough housing. I think my baby has a wicked sense of humor.
Sunday- Did you know that 1 month old babies aren’t supposed to have senses of humor? I don’t think there is any rhyme or reason to his advancing development. Doc Claybourne assures me that his development is normal and not to come back unless the baby is actually sick. At least Felix was sympathetic he said that BooBear was fine and not to buy too many clothes because he would be growing out of them on a weekly basis.
All in all I have to say that BooBear is progressing well. Though,, I may have to make another appointment with Doc, these diapers are no joke! I’m going to see if I can get Doc to twitch if I drop a dirty diaper on the floor. 🙂
