Tired out after eating. We are doing really well with breast feeding. Bennett has been bottle free four days now!
I was so determined he would not have a pacifier, but when I saw how much he loved it in the NICU I caved. He doesn't want it all the time, or even ask for it, but when we give it to him he becomes Mr. Content.
Bennett spends a few minutes in his swing in front of the window at least once a day. He likes looking at the bears on his mobile, listening to the music, swinging and looking outside. Hopefully the exposure to sunlight will help clear up the last of his jaundice.
So happy to be swinging in the sunshine.
Grandma helped me get this picture of his sweet feet. Poor dear still has lots of heel prick marks from the NICU.
With our Charlotte bear
Isabel is slowly adjusting to the new addition. She licked his head when I was nursing him last night, which is a good sign that she is welcoming him to the pack.
I am determined that he will like to read.
It's never too early to start.
I know this stage of blissfulness won't last forever so I am enjoying every moment. I love learning about Bennett - he likes music, he likes his pacifier, he gets the hiccups at least once a day, he is one gassy baby, he has at least one long awake time during the day (three to four hours), he won't go down in his co-sleeper unless he is nearly comatose because he would much rather sleep in someone's arms, he is not a fussy baby (so far). We haven't had any nights of walking the house, he only cries when hungry or having his diaper changed. Although, the past few changes he's been completely calm and patient with the process. Next week I may be feeling a little less blissful since Grandma will be back to her once or twice weekly visits as opposed to living in and I'll be getting less sleep, but for now, life is fabulous.
