You are wearing clothes in the 0-3 month range with a few smaller 3-6 month outfits thrown in for good measure. You are just starting to take an interest in some of your rattle-y type of toys, but not much else. Your absolute favorite thing to play with right now are your hands. You keep making the attempt to suck on your thumb, but since you keep it tucked into your fist you end up trying to suck on your whole fist - pretty comical! You hold your hands constantly and once or twice you've snagged Mommy's and Sissy's hair.
You still love your swing most days, and you've taken to sleeping on your side. You sleep each night in your crib...but still using the Boppy pillow. You will NOT sleep unless you are swaddled. And you have one swaddle blanket in particular that you're fond of. I swear, it's got baby crack in it or something...maybe it's magic? You will start fussing, and Dad or I will wrap you into that swaddle and you go out like a light. Regular blankets will work in a pinch (if the magic crack swaddle blanket is being washed) but you don't like them as much.
You recognize our voices and turn your head to find us when we come into the room. When Dad picks you up from day care in the afternoons, you are just starting to squeal with happiness when you hear him...that really tickles him!
You are eating about half formula and half breastmilk these days as I struggle with my milk production. This weekend, we're trying to let you cluster-feed to help with that, but it's a struggle to not give you any formula when you're crying and I know it's because you're hungry and there's nothing else for you from me. It's early in the weekend though, so we'll see how that goes...I make no promises.
Most of the time, you're a happy baby boy...
But we all have our days, right?
We love you SO much, Jax! Looking forward to all the changes that will continue to come our way!
