8 Weeks

I will proably say this everytime, but I cannot believe we have an 8 week old. He is changing every day and Im loving every single second of it. He went to the pool for the first time, for about 10 mins, he LOVE it! He had his first holiday, The 4th of July, we went to a family cookout. He is smiling everyday, big ol baby grins, all day long...I cant get enough of those. He also follows people and objects with his eyes, his laughs when you play peek a boo, and he smiles when you kiss him on his cheek. He def knows his mom and dad. He loves to sleep on our chests and us holding him. He is starting to like his swing and bouncy seat. He LOVES to be outside, to bad its been way to hot to take him out, when its cool I just sit outside with him and he looks around at the trees. He is rolling, not rolling over yet, but rolling up on both sides. He is a very mellow baby unless he gets hungry or his belly hurts, and then he will get fired up. He loves to listen to music, his faves are Jack Johnson and Notre Dame Band CD, he gets his feet kicking and just smiles....his dad thinks its pretty cool, secretly I know its just to music, he wouldnt care if was elevator music.....
Hes not much for sleeping, during the say he only takes cat naps for 20-30 mins at a time, and he likes to be up bright and early anywhere from 4am- 6am, ready to smile, talk, and play. He is eating us out of the house....sometimes it seems like he cant get enough food. I know its because hes growing, hes growing before our eyes, he looks bigger to me everyday. He weighs about 11 lbs and is pretty long, all his 3 month sleeps fit him everywhere but length, and Im not having no baby wearing high waters....haha, I know all to well about that problem.....His eyes are changing color, just not sure to what yet.
We started cloth diapering this week, and I love it, he doesnt seem to mind ethier. Its so much easier then I thought and so good for him, the environment and our bank account, so its a win-win-win.
8 weeks later and I honestly still hold him sometimes and cant believe hes mine and that I have an 8 week old. Just yesterday he was sleeping on my chest and breathing on my neck and I had tears running down my face because there was a time when I never thought I would have this life and I love it more then I even though possible.

I have a 5 week old......

I cant believe I have a 5 week old...its crazy. Im loving every minute of it. I think every day I fall more and more in love with him, if thats even possible! I love being home with him everyday and look forward to each and everyday. He is staying awake a lot more during the day and smiling at me all the time. Each one melts my heart. He has outgrown his newborn clothes and newborn diapers, which makes me sad. Hes getting so big so fast. He loves music and listens to Jack Johnson in his crib. We still havent done overnight sleep in the crib, we are just not ready for that yet, but he does nap in there. His favorite place to sleep is on our chests. Hes getting up 2-3 times a night and sleeping 3-4 hours....which I cant complain about. But around 5am he is awake and ready to talk and play, and its a struggle for mom! He loves the outside, loves to watch the leaves on the trees and go for walks in his stroller, he also loves car rides, but watch out if the stroller or car stops, hes not happy! He also likes when I "wear" him in a carrier on my chest, I get so much housework done this way and he enjoys it. We have started tummy time and he is holding his head up so good. He eats like a horse and weighs a little over 9 lbs. He has his 6 week check up on Monday...I think he has to get one shot which I am not looking forward to. All and all, he is happy, healthy, and growing........I cant explain my love for him, its the most intense feeling ever, I cant get enough of him. Cecil always wants him when he gets home from work and even after being up with him all night and with him all day, I dont want to give him up! Who needs a shower, really? Hes the only one I see during the day...LOL okay Ill admit my 30 mins in the hot shower alone everyday is pretty nice......I will try and update more.......but for now Im gonna go enjoy my little boy and my grays dinner!
