He is smiling SO much more!!! He was only doing it 2-3 times a day. Now he spends a good bit of his awake time keeping eye contact and smiling.
His circumcision is all healed now.
Beans make us both gassy and keep him up all night--at least they did this week.
He fits 0-3 month clothing now. They didn't fit him at first and now they suddenly fit perfectly. Unfortunately, this means he outgrew Daddy's old sleeper.
He rolled over. It might have been a fluke because he was near the middle of the ottoman on his tummy near the crack where it goes inward.
He's grabby. He grabbed a toy on the changing table. I'm not sure it was on purpose, but it was his first time grabbing a toy.
He prefers to nap on our chest or in the bouncer.
He doesn't like to be swaddled.
He's starting to go back to his original sleep schedule where he nurses at 12, 3, then 5. We're finally getting sleep again.
He has a nasty diaper rash from all the pooping. We're trying to cure it with un-petroleum jelly or the ointment that the Happy Baby Company sent with his prefolds and wool and flat diapers.
He has lots more eye contact. He seems alert all the time that his eyes are opened now.
His first latch when nursing is almost never a good one.
He almost never uses a pacifier these days.
The fur is gone from his arms but some of it is still on his lower back.
There's no more skin peeling from his body, just his face and head.
He started smiling a lot more this week. I don't know that it was an accident when it happened before, it was on purpose, but it didn't happen as much as it does now. It's more social now, like he's figured out how to continue to interact with us with smiles. Before, it was just here and there.
I never get tired of snuggling him. I literally spend a few hours each day just having him sleep on my chest or in my arms nursing as often as he wants.
I was trying to take a chaste picture of his cute naked little body and he pooped ALL OVER his blue carpet. I tried to get the stains out but if you look closely there's still a faint, yellow hue.
He doesn't cry a lot, but here's what he looks like when he does. It's important to me to remember the crying as well as the smiling.
