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 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.
Looking at his Great Grandpa!

What fun to snuggle with this tiny baby boy. Such a precious gift from God.
