7 Weeks Old Today
I was trying to hurry and grab my phone and take a picture while he was smiling. It was a lot bigger than this, but didn't take it fast enough and then of course I couldn't get him to smile again for a picture.
He is now 11 lbs and 21 inches long. He is starting to sleep a LOT better at night... at least 5-7 hours at a time now. Yay! He is even starting to grow out of some of his clothes. He is a super picky baby and is actually onery more than he is happy, but we love him anyway. :) It's like he just wakes up in a bad mood all the time and wants to eat. I think he might have some tummy issues. We have tried every kind of formula and bottle and give him the Mylicon Infant drops and we have found what works the best, but nothing seems to take it away completely. :( Any suggestions? When his is happy though, it melts my heart. I love hearing him coo and gurgle. He actually loves when I just let him lay on our bed. That always seems to make him excited. He gets mad if I touch him or pick him up when he's laying there.
Teagan is starting to look like a baby now instead of a toddler and is a lot more responsive and alert. I can't wait to see his little personality unveiled. We think he's going to be very serious because of his serious, concerned look all the time and be introverted which is totally opposite of Jeremy and me. It will be fun to learn all about him.
