my sweet boy is six weeks old today, time can slow down any day now.
we have to work hard for him to bless us with his amazing smiles and coos, but they are so worth it when he does. he sleeps great - not through the night yet, he wakes up twice at the most, sometimes only once, but i wake up feeling good so i am not complaining.
if possible, this delicious boy must be growing tons right now. he sleeps a lot of the day - still with the most wakeful times right in the morning and in the evening with big chunks of napping, just waking to eat, in the middle of the day. while i appreciate all the things i can get done during this, i am always scared what that means for nighttime, then am pleasantly surprised when we sail through the night.
at our midwife check in on thursday i am going to nurse and weigh him - for my curiosity. i was sick this last weekend and he took a few bottles and seemed extra satisfied, not wanting to eat again as soon. so i wonder how much he is getting from me - from a bottle, he will happily chug four oz. i will also find out what this little chunker is doing weight wise, so i will check back in with that!
i seem to remember six to eight weeks is when they start staying awake more and we'll really start getting the good purposeful smiles and coos. i can't wait!
