Drew is 7 weeks old and growing bigger every day. He finally had his one month check-up on the 15th, and he was 10 pounds, 14 ounces, and 22 inches long. He is gaining more control of his head, although it’s still pretty wobbly at times. When he’s awake, his eyes are wide open, and he is taking in everything around him. When he hears his sister, he looks for her and loves listening to her voice. He's smiling more and more, and it’s the sweetest thing. He stays up for longer periods throughout the day, often times taking several bottles before finally taking a nap. (I suppose we should work on that.) He has slept a few times here and there in his crib, but only during the day. He mainly sleeps in his bouncer at this point; the batteries in the swing have been dead for awhile (and the ones in the bouncer are about to croak as well). He has been waking up a couple times to eat throughout the night and then usually around 7 or so in the morning. Chad normally takes the first shift or two, and I have the later shifts, but he told me that he’d like it if we switched. (I don't know about that.) He no longer cries during his baths. He is still in size 1 diapers and takes 3 ounces every couple of hours. We'll try to give him 4 to spread out the gap in between feedings, but it’s rare if he takes all four, and he even so, he still prefers to eat a couple hours later. He went to his first Flirtini Friday on the 18th (it was St. Patty’s day themed, and he had the cutest green sweats on). I also took him and his sister to a friend's baby shower on the 19th. Everyone thinks he is so adorable and loves how cuddly he is.
I can't believe it has been 7 weeks already!
