Two Things Tuesday (7/23)
1). This little guy is 6 weeks old today!
I didn't do a "what's happening with Jack" post when he turned a month old, so I might as well do one now!
What's happening with Jack?
~He's far more alert these days and usually seems to enjoy tummy-time and the times he lays against my propped up legs while listening to me sing songs to him like "The Wheels on the Bus," "How Much is that Doggie in the Window?," and other nursery songs.
~He hates to be swaddled, but he sleeps like a pro when he is.
~He sleeps like an even bigger pro with the sound of rain I play on this awesome app my mother-in-law told me about.
~Speaking of sleep...he's now (normally...but last night was a different story) at 4 1/2 hours, 3 hours, and 2 hours between feedings at night. It's soooo much better than the every 1 1/2 to 2 hours between feedings we were working with a few weeks ago.
~He's a great eater! So much so, that he has what we lovingly refer to as his "triple chin." He goes for 2 to 3 hours between feedings during the day. Three weeks ago, I thought I'd never get used to nursing. Now, I look forward to our sweet time together! What a blessing!
~He hasn't smiled yet. I watch for the slightest hint of it every day!
2. The Husband and I are celebrating our 2-year anniversary today!
Happy anniversary, My Dear! What a ride it's been so far!
