|*it was late in the day, all my smiles had been used up*|
*edited to add* not sure why/how but this is written from Jake's POV
*I am 12lbs 15oz and 24 inches long. Mama says this puts me in the 90th percentile for both :-)
*I rode on an airplane to Minnesota to meet my Boppa, Papa D, Uncle Paul, Aunt Linda, Isabel, great Grandpa Scrabeck, great Grandpa & Grandma Miller, and a whole bunch of other family. I have now met all my grandparents and nearly all the greats. I was a champ on the airplane and I was a little fussy around all the new people.
*I have lost some of my hair on top of my head but the stuff on the side and on the back looks a little wavy!
*I can see much better! I had a great time watching Isabel run around at Nana's house. Mama caught me looking at the puppies too. Sometimes I watch mama or dad until they look at me and then I reward them with a smile! I found the mobile that hangs above my swing and spend some time each day studying it.
*Mornings are my favorite. Evenings are a close second.
*I can speed nurse in around 20 minutes - a big change from the hour it used to take me! I drink from a bottle even faster!
*I'm still wearing 0-3 month onesies and clothing. Diapers: size 1.
*Sometimes I like my paci, sometimes it offends me. This confused Isabel immensely.
*I spit up a lot. Every single time I'm in my car seat (which I really don't like).
*I still love all the carriers that mama puts me in. Being close to her, bundled up in a ball is my favorite.
*Mama's noticed I get fussy a couple hours after I eat. Usually because I'm ready for a nap, sometimes because I want to eat again.
*Every now and then I sleep in longer chunks and have long periods between feedings. The longest was 7 hours! I am *not* consistent.
*I am enjoying baths more and I really love showers.
|I used to hang on for dear life...now I can relax a little.|
*While we were in Minnesota it became clear that I do favor my mama over strangers.
*On my two month day mama put me to bed in my crib. I love my room and I am happy almost every time I am in it. Sleeping in my crib is great!
