6 Weeks Old

Monday, January 02, 2012

Baby J is now about 6 weeks old and has made a few advancements. He is noticing more things in his surroundings, like the fish on the mobile on his swing has finally caught his attention. He can track moving objects with his eyes, although he gets bored of that pretty quickly.

He's been mumbling little baby sounds, and last week, when Daddy anounced that he was leaving the room, baby said something that sounded like "Dadda!"

And he's able to hold his head up now, which makes holding him a little easier. Although he has grown quite a bit in weight, so my thumb joints have taken a little beating, and I have to change the way I pick him up. He is a squirmer, though. Often when I'm trying to burp him, he wiggles and squirms and makes it almost impossible to burp him. I think he's going to be a physically active one.

Babycenter says that they should be able to smile at us soon, if not yet. He's been smiling, but mostly in his sleep. He's been doing that since just a few days in. But I don't really count it as smiling at us until he gives us eye contact when he's doing it.

He's such a little cutie that I just can hardly bare the thought of him being our last baby. I look at him and I want more! But babyhood is fleeting, and soon they all grow up.

He's been sick since just before Christmas. I feel so bad for him. He's been all stuffed up. I've been giving him a shower with me in the mornings to help clear his sinuses. He seems to really enjoy the shower. Except today, when I was kind of in a rush about it.
