Baby Prez: 8 Weeks

Dear Baby Prez,

You are becoming cuter everyday, and you have everyone you meet wrapped around your finger!

Weight:  ~10 pounds, but it's just a guess.

Health:  You are still a healthy baby! 

Sleep:  You're a great sleeper, and we are continually finding out how great of a baby you are when we hear friends' stories of babies only sleeping a couple hours at a time.  

Social:  What a big week for you socially!  You met your great grandma, great aunt & uncle, and cousins when they drove through town on the way to see extended family.  What a special visit!  And you met other babies for the first time this week!  We had friends over for dinner and you met Charlotte, who was intrigued by another baby.  And the next day, one of Daddy's best friends from high school stopped by with his wife and daughter, Miranda.  Both little girls were so pretty.  I asked you if one of them is your girlfriend now, but you aren't telling.  

Diet:  Breastmilk only.  You are drinking 4.5 - 5 ounces per feeding.  

Likes:   Being held and interacting with us.  Now that you can finally see and recognize Mommy and Daddy, you want to interact with us more.  You usually only get fussy when you are hungry, but this week you've begun getting fussy just because you want held or want us to pay attention to you.  

Lights.  Like all babies, you are fascinated by lights and will stare at them endlessly.  It amazes Mommy that you blink so infrequently.  You would definitely win any staring contest right now!  

Attention!  Like last week, you are stilling wanting to just be held and interacted with and getting fussy when you are left alone for too long.

Dislikes:  You are such a happy baby that there are almost no dislikes to even mention!  You don't love tummy time.  I would say that you tolerate tummy time, but once you'd have enough, you make it known! 

Milestones:  First walk in your stroller without the carseat.  Mommy and Daddy walked down to the corner store for sodas, and you came along in your stroller.  You loved being outside and looking at the sky. The clerk at the store thought you were adorable and loved your name.  

Made new baby friends - Charlotte and Miranda

Met your Great Grandma Jo

Met your great aunt & uncle & cousins

Worst Moments:  Poop explosions.  You are one forceful kid.  

Best Moments:  You are smiling and interacting with us more and more, which is amazing.  Mommy also loved seeing you meet Grandma Jo.  It was so special.  You were so good, and she was so excited!
