Stats: 21 1/2 inches (1 1/2 inches longer than birth) and 10 pounds 2 ounces
Favorites: He is pretty good about sleeping. He is more alert at night, which will be fun when I start sleep training him. He likes it when I put his rock and play by the back window so he can look out. He is loving his swing.
Lifesavers for Mom and Dad: His swing. Right after I feed him at night, he usually will go right back to sleep if I put him in the swing. Also, his rock and play is nice to move around the house when I am doing activities with Olivia and housework.
Dislikes: He absolutely hates baths and screams when I do it. He also screams when I put him in the car seat, but usually settles down after a few minutes and then sleeps the whole time.
Facts: He is making eye contact and opening his eyes a whole lot more. His cry sounds like an angry cat and I am finding he uses his cry as a way to just talk. He will cry for a minute and then stop and look all content. He loves to be held in the evening. The rest of the day he is pretty content just sitting and looking at things or sleeping. He has reddish-brown hair that is slightly curly, but not like Olivia’s. He has the cutest smile..I can’t wait until he REALLY smiles at me!
Sleep Habits: He sleeps on and off all day. I can tell his really heavy sleep is about 9 at night until midnight and then it’s on and off all day until about noon and then he heavy sleeps until about 4 or 5. We will figure it out one of these days.
Doctors Visits: He went in a few days after birth, one week out, and then two weeks out (he had lost a lot of weight), and then for his monthly check up. I feel like I have been at the doctor’s office a lot. It’s cool to see his charts and his growth.
Eating Habits: Since he was losing weight, I had to supplement and let’s just say that it definitely helped. He eats A LOT…about every 2 to three hours and doesn’t take any breaks. He also went from 50th percentile to 75th percentile in weight because he is such a piggy.
Milestones: Pretty much just keeping him alive and giving us eye contact. He is so good at lifting his head and swings it around a lot!
Looking Forward To: Seeing him smile and interact more!
