Denver, You are 6 weeks old today! I can't believe how fast time is flying. It seems like we just brought you home last week. I wanted to write these things down so that I don't forget. Right now: You're in a size 1 diaper. You're wearing 0-3 month clothes. You weigh 14 pounds. You're eating 4 ounces every 2 hours during the day and you eat 3 times a night. Normally around midnight, 3 and 6. Twice you've slept almost 5 hours between feedings and only ate twice. I'm hoping that starts happening more often! We finally have your tummy issues under control. I felt like we were conducting a science experiment for awhile. It was definitely trial and error. You now drink Similac Soy liquid (ready to feed) with gas drops after every bottle and 1 1/2 ounces of prune juice three times a day to help you potty. I finally got you to switch over from Drop Ins to Dr Browns bottles. I like them because it doesn't seem to take you as long to eat which is a huge plus at 3am! You're starting to "talk" a LOT! Your dad and I love it. We could sit & listen to you all day. You're kicking your legs and waving your arms all the time. You're very expressive & your little arms & legs are getting so strong! You love to have your diaper changed. I think you like being naked! It's cute now but that will have to change before you're a teenager! :) You went to Walmart with me for our first grocery shopping trip together yesterday & you did great! You got hot, hungry & fussy at the end while we were checking out but we made it! Everyday your personality shows a little more and your dad and I are having a blast getting to know you and trying to decide who you are most alike!
A visit with a lot of questions
