|4 Weeks Old|
One of my favorite things to do is just to play with his hair. I was so happy that he had any hair at all, so I can't get enough of it. I love trying to spike it or just make it look a bit crazy.
When he is finished eating and you try to put the bottle back to his mouth, he scruches his face and sticks out his lower lip. Its so cute that I usually just keep offering the bottle to him just to see the face.
He wont sleep unless he is swaddled really tight. He flails his arms a lot and if they aren't tied down then he will wake himself up.
He currently doesn't have much of a set schedule. The past few nights he has not fallen asleep until 12am-1am, but he has slept until about 5am. He was only sleeping 2 1/2 - 3 hours at a time, so to having him starting to sleep four hours feels great.
Lance and I take the night in shifts. Typically, I'm the one that puts him to sleep, then gets up with him the first few times. Then the second half of the night and into the morning, Lance will get up with him and let me sleep. Lance often offers to take him while I get some sleep, but I am usually too stubborn and insist that he needs his sleep. I'm getting better at accepting his help though.
His new favorite nap spot is on my chest. I just love when he snuggles up to me. I know it probably wont last too much longer, so I am definitely enjoying it while I can.
Everyone says that he looks like Lance or that they think he will look like Lance when he gets bigger. I'm not sure I really see either one of us in him just yet, so I'll trust their opinions. Will does look a bit like Lance's baby pictures though.
|Still a little small, but he sure looks cute in it!|
Just within the past few days, Lance has discovered that tapping Will's nose while saying "nose...nose...nose" can sometimes get a smile. We caught this one on camera today. Such a cute smile, I had to put it on here twice.
|I just love this picture!!!|
Things I wouldn't want to live without:The boppi: He does not sleep good on the crib mattress, so we put the boppi in the crib and he sleeps much better.
The rocking chair: I debated and debated on whether or not to buy one, but I am SO GLAD that we did. Both Lance and I have spent hours in that rocking chair and it is a lifesaver. I honestly love it.
feed. I am grateful that my sister let me borrow hers because these this are freakin expensive!
My camera: Obviously I would hate not to be able to share this sweet little boy with others and it would be sad if I wasn't able to document his life. I am grateful to technology and I'm glad to have a nice camera.
Diapers: Of course, who wouldn't be thankful for diapers. I don't know how our ancestors did the whole cloth diaper thing. I am just grateful that I don't have to.
