Jack has been in this world for 9 days now--that's crazy to think about. I would love to say we are settling into a routine, but I'm not so sure about that. I am struggling today with getting him to sleep enough. He likes being awake and alert, and he doesn't like napping when he's not being held. And because I can't hold him all of the time, I need help! Any suggestions?
Other than that, he really is a great baby. He is sweet and curious when he is awake. He doesn't cry very often, although he consistently cries while being changed--he hates that! He feeds often and well.
Bech went back to work today, so it was just Jack and me. I think we did okay. He even happily vegged out in the swing for a little while, which allowed me to take a shower and put on real clothes.
Here are some recent pictures of the little guy:
I know this isn't a "real smile," but it's so darn cute! I love his little sleepy smiles so much!
Bech looks really tired in this picture. That's probably because that's how we both feel--very tired!
Check out that awesome double chin...ridiculous.
He loves to put one of his hands up in a fist on his face. This is his favorite nursing pose (don't worry, I won't be sharing pictures of that anytime soon!) but he also does it sometimes when he sleeps.
This is a video Bech made of Jack on Wednesday. He's sitting in his Baby Bjorn chair, just relaxing and being so alert. It's kinda long, and is probably really boring if you aren't in some way related to Jack (actually even then, it might be boring!). But he is really cute in it, plus I love the music Bech chose to go along with it.
