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!
