Hey Mikey : 4 weeks old

We traveled North to see Mikey one afternoon last week.  He is four weeks old today, according to his sweet Mama he eats, sleeps, poops, pees and keeps her busy.  He weighs about ten pounds now.  He is almost out of newborn clothing and into the 0-3 months size.  Maddies says she thinks his legs are scrunched in the newborn size.

Hey Mikey

Hey Mikey you are 26 days old!

Far Guy and I both held him…he was a little fussy.  I put some socks on him and wrapped him up in a warm fuzzy blanket, he had the last ounce of a bottle, I was rewarded with a huge burp and he fell asleep.  In his sleep he smiled, but of course I didn’t get that on camera.

It has been my experience over the years that a warm baby is a happy sleepy baby.  With Jennifer I warmed her bassinet with a heating pad before I put her down to sleep. I often used those old fashioned kimonos that had flaps on the sleeve so that you could cover up their fingers. Socks were a must.  I know it is summer but babies just have a hard time regulating their body temperature if they are warm they stay warm but if they are cold they stay cold and cranky.

  7. He is a beautiful baby! You remind me of how mama used to be. I can just hear her saying, I wish you would put a little blanket around the baby and cover his little feet up. Of course, she was right. I like to see them snuggled up too.

  8. Babies can't tell us what the problem is, but a Grandma who's tuned in can sense what the problem is.

  9. He is a real sweetheart. Great grandsons are really neat to have, I suspect.

  11. In England, and probably a lot of other European countries, babies were bundled up and put outside to nap in their pram. I did the same with my kids. Obviously not in freezing cold temperatures, but definitely in everything above that. Used to put mine under the overhang of the camper, so they were protected from the sun or rain, and where I could see the pram from the house. They napped very well!
    That four weeks has passed fast for the little cutie!

  15. The picture looks like he's just daring someone to come closer so he can wind up that little fist and give them a punch! LOL! What a cutie he is and what a great Great Grandmother you are. He also seems to be pretty fascinated with his Great Grandpa too.
