Cole -4 weeks ( July 16, 2013)

Weight- We will find out at our weight check on Thursday. My guess he is pretty close to 7 lbs

Health- No problems. We have gotten the reflux under control with Prilosec (thank God)

Sleep- We got the ok after his good weight gain last week, to let him go 5 hours at night without waking. He usually goes 4.5-5 hours(still in his crib). Sleeps for an hour to an hour and a half at a time during the day, usually in the bouncy chair.
swaddle sack- love it-ARMS OUT of course

Diet-Momma's Milk- every 2 hours during the day. Also has one bottle a day of breastmilk (about 0.5oz mixed with his Culturelle). He is a maniac with the bottle, chugging and getting milk everywhere.

Clothes- Still wearing newborn cloths, my guess is a few more weeks. Newborn diapers too

Development- He is really starting to focus on objects. he also is making the cutest coo's and squeeks. Eyes are still a blue/grey color, no signs of brown yet. As you remember from last weeks picture,he has got a strong neck and is awesome at tummy time.

Likes/Dislikes- Still loves our morning walks with the pups, and likes sitting outside if there is a breeze. Also is calmed by the sound of the stove top vent.

Milestones- Nothing major. Just feels like he is changing everyday, becoming less of a newborn and more of an infant.

Postpartum- I am feeling great, incision is healing awesome. Will have a post preggo update soon. Go to the Dr. in 2 1/2 weeks and hopefully will get the ok to do more than walk. Very excited for ME time at the gym. Also having major anxiety about daycare. Plan was to send him when I go back to work after Labor day, but I am having second thoughts. I am not sure what other options I have, but I am mildly freaking out about sending an 11 week old to daycare.

  1. daycare is a tough idea but it will be OK if this ends up being your fit for the family when the time comes.
