A Little Behind...

Well, you are here! You arrived 7 weeks ago today. I can hardly believe it! You are growing up far too fast for mommy already. Please stop. Here is a picture from today. Aunt Denise gave you this outfit. This picture makes me laugh. You look like a little man who is posing for his work badge.

People told me newborns sleep ALL the time. I think you must be the exception. You are the most alert baby I have ever seen. You like to be awake during the day and you make it really hard for mommy to get things done! But you are ridiculously cute, so I will forgive you!  I need a block of time to write down everything that happened with your birth. I'm hoping that day is soon!  

At 7 weeks you are getting bigger!  You were 6lbs 4 ounces at birth and last week you were 9lbs 6 ounces. I love your chubby cheeks! You have a very strong head, you like to look at everything, and you enjoy being on Mommy and Daddy's chest. Unfortunately you have a ton of gas, and you have been very fussy lately. This is so unlike you! You usually only fuss when you are dirty, hungry, or right before you pass out. Thankfully you are not fussy at night. You sleep pretty well at night, so for that, I thank you. Mommy does not do well without sleep. The fact that you are sleeping 3 to 4 hours at a time (sometimes even 5!) is wonderful! You are in a sleeper in our room, and I can already tell it is going to be really hard having you downstairs in your crib. I know it needs to happen soon, but you look so little in that big crib. Hopefully I can get up the courage to put you in there soon. 

When you sleep for more than an hour, I will update the blog. Hopefully someday you will appreciate this.  Daddy got out his baby book the other day and read all the things his Mom wrote. It made him sad because she is no longer here, but it was wonderful to see her handwriting (sorry this is typed!) and read all about the things Daddy did each month!  More to come....hopefully soon!
