So here are some updates:
This month has been amazing, and Bennett, mommy thanks you for it!!! Most nights you only wake up once, usually between 3 and 4:00, for a quick feed and you sleep again until sometime between 7:00-8:00. I'm hoping not to jinx myself here but it's been amazing. You are still sleeping in the pack and play next to mommy and daddy which I have no intention of changing anytime soon.
You still nap quite a bit during the day. Usually staying awake for only an hour at a time before you start getting a little fussy. We have quickly realized that you love being swaddled. For the most part you won't really fall asleep on your own; you like to be "put to sleep" in either your swing or pack and play.
Still eating like a champ. Usually every 2-3 hours, but your feeding times have shortened over the past month.
You're still a puker. Your mommy constantly smells like sour milk and she's become very efficient at doing laundry:) This month you've been a little wishy-washy with taking bottles (since 95% of the time you are breastfed). We had the opposite problem with your brother (hello nursing strike) so this is new territory for your mommy.
This month has been all about the smiles:) Around 6 weeks you started showing us the biggest and gummiest smile. And your daddy and I have been enjoying every single one of them.
Your mommy started work again this month (boooooooo). But only for a day and a half per week, so it's not so bad. Luckily we have terrific grandparents who have agreed to babysit for a few months while we all make the transition.
Likes and Dislikes:
You love your swing, staring at lights, smiling, eating, and diaper changes.
You still hate the evening. Your fussy time starts around 7:00 every night. I use the word "fussy" lightly because mosts evenings it's not even really fussing. You just hate napping at that time.
You also hate being hungry and over tired.
I said to your daddy the other day that you "almost" make me want to have another baby. But then I think about the part where I have to carry another 10lb baby in my tiny 5"2 frame and I quickly snap out of it!!!
We love you Benny! XO
