Tiny Guy is One Month Old
I think he might be smiling, in the last few days I've seen him smile when he wasn't falling asleep, and it seems like it's in response to Tim or I smiling at him. He always smiles when he is falling asleep, that's very cute. He has an adorable dimple on his right cheek that I see when he smiles big. His poor eye was all watery and goopy for a few days. It looks very sad in this picture, but you can see his little smile.
He isn't the sleeper that Kins was. I was able to sleep 4 hour stretches with her when she was a month, but he is big into eating. This should be a very nice thing when he gets older, maybe getting him to eat won't be the huge hassle that it is with Kins. Right now, it means the longest stretches I get to sleep are 2 or 2.5 hours. I've gotten a couple of 3 hour stretches, and last night I got a full 3.5 hrs, a record. I'm excited for when that becomes more standard... or... *gasp* even longer stretches! I can't tell with a lot of accuracy, since I'm just using my scale at home to weigh myself with and without him, but I think he weighed about 9.6 pounds a week ago, so probably close to 10 now. That explains why he all of a sudden doesn't fit in newborn clothes anymore. I had to put them away this past week and get out the 0-3 month clothes. His little hands and wrists are putting on some adorable chub.
He is playing the tongue game, which Kins also did around this age. It's so cute. When I stick my tongue out at him and he notices his eyes widen and he raises his eyebrows. It's big time exciting. Then he works his hardest to copy me.
Kins is getting a little better with him each day. She is still prone to grabbing him roughly and yanking on him, but she hasn't been trying to scratch him as much anymore. She is sweet more of the time. She enjoys giving him a "nice kiss" or a "nice hug" often. She loves to sit with him in her lap. She loves to discuss what he's up to, "baby sleeping" "baby crying" one time, "baby walking!" said with amazement as he was carried on a walk by Tim.
