Cole- 10 weeks (August 27, 2013)

Weight- Not sure, will have to stick little man on the scale next time I am at the grocery store-kidding
Health-  No issues. Reflux shows its ugly head a few times a week, but doesn't seem to bother Cole very much.
Sleep- Last week after his shots he woke up once each night to feed at like 1am due to his sleeping ALL DAY. But we are back to sleeping thru the night, down at 8-9 and up to feed before momma goes to the gym at 4. Naps usually happen 2-3 times a day for 30 min-1 1/2 hours. More on our new found naps here. 
Sleeps in a sleep sack at night and have been swaddling some of the times during naps.
Diet- Momma's milk, about every 2 1/2- 3 hours during the day. When getting a bottle he gets 4 ounces. And YES, we take Tommee Tippee bottles!!
Clothes- Still fit into some newborn rombers, but are pretty much transitioned to 0-3 month onsies and shorts. Size 1 diapers
Development- Eyes are still a shade of blue, hair is lightening a little, but still brown. Filling out well, chubby little cheeks and thigh rolls are developing nicely!! He's a very strong little boy, lots of kicking with his legs, able to hold his head up when doing tummy time and batting at toys on his mat. Cooing more and more and beginning to mimic mouth movements.
Crying- Doing much better in this department. Fusses when he is hungry, tired or has a belly ache and has to poop. But the colic-like baby has disappeared!!!
Likes/Dislikes- Loves baths, singing songs, eating, watching his puppies play and mat time. Dislikes being hot, burping between ounces or breast, and stopping at stop lights when riding in the car.
Milestones- Nothing major, we survived our first shots with just a little fever spike afterwards. Getting to be a much better shopping buddy, he can give about 2 hours. Spent the evening with Grammie Jan and Nanu while mom and dad went to a wedding last Saturday.
enjoying our days together

Happy 10 weeks Cole!! Mom and Dad love you so much and enjoy seeing your personality come alive more and more each day. This is the last week we get to spend together before mom goes back to work, but lets not think about that now.


  1. Cole is so cute! Sofia had serious reflux issues, glad his isn't too bad :)


    1. What did you find most helpful for reflux? Web have him on the Omeprazole which is a huge improvement, but he still gets it every once in a while. Reflux is the WORST.
