His five week picture was taken at Roxbury in our hotel room.
He's actually looking me in the eye.
He loves his sister. He is fascinated by her.
He smiles a lot now and usually squeals and squeaks when you talk to him and/or touch his chin or cheek.
Zantac is helping the screaming that started this week. He has reflux, according to his doctor and was starting to act the way his colicky sister used to at this age.
He loves looking around at the outdoors while in the stroller in the evenings or when the sun isn't too bright.
This week was his first time at Roxbury and I'm 99% sure he was the youngest baby there.
At his check-up on Thursday he weighed 11 pounds and 6 ounces and was 23 inches long.
Some of the recently cut skin in his circumcision was starting to adhere where it shouldn't. A male doctor came in and just pulled that away and told me it was normal.
They also said his excessive pooping is normal. Speaking of which, he still uses about 15 diapers a day. We used flat diapers with him all week to help heal his diaper rash and to make laundry easier while there.
I tried to help his rash the one day by letting him hang around half naked on a towel. It didn't last long because he's not a fan of tummy time.
There's less involuntary twitching when he's sleeping.
He's startled by loud noises.
He puts his hands around my boob when he's nursing.
He is more successful at sucking his fingers--but it still only happens successfully a couple of times a week.
He does well in baby carriers and they calm him when he's gassy or having problems with the reflux--though the Moby is better than the Boba as far as his comfort is concerned. However, the Boba is quicker to put on and not as hot for the summer months.
