Our baby in TWO words: Sweet & Unpredictable.

  • Weight: 10+ pounds.
  • Approx: Sleeping patterns: changes nearly every day. Every time I got to write it out, it changes that very night.
  • Will sleep in his crib for the first part of the night. Or sometimes not at all. ;) (and ends up in between us, or in my arms for the duration)
    • takes a morning nap in his crib (sometimes, if he does not wake up when I transfer him from my lap, from the swing, etc) Has been known to actually fall asleep and stay asleep in there. But, hey, let's not count on it just yet.
    • Will sit in his swing while I get things done.

Nursing progress: takes him about 20-25 minutes to eat.

  • eats well.
  • burps easily
  • spits up frequently. I constantly smell like spit up.
  • nurses at night in our bed for his night time feedings.
  • keeps his foot crookd in a weird way all the time. When I go to straighten it out, he pops it right back in place.

Things I have noticed or learned (personality):

  • has big "grins" more frequently
  • likes to cuddle
  • likes his "Mammy" a lot. When she is around he just grins so big.
  • stares at the fans and dark big objects for a long time.
  • becoming more independent. (Will sit alone for longer periods of time)
  • usually wants to eat during church after praise and worship is over.
  • seems pretty content overall.

I would say that we have a 'good' baby.

I take him for his 2month checkup next Friday, I will update then with height, weight, etc.

We are really starting to enjoy and learn more about Daniel. He seems to have a pretty calm personality, but he does have his feisty times, usually around when Dennis comes home….
