Seriously cant believe this little guy is 5 Weeks. He is becoming more like his sister and turning into a high maintenance baby. We just aren't sure if we get these babies that are hard or if its our fault and we don't know what we are doing.
He is so unpredictable with his sleeping both day and night. I am trying to put him on a schedule the best I can but so far it isnt going very well. He doesnt seem to like his bed during the day so we rotate trying the swing, car seat, backpack, my bed to find out where he would like to sleep. We eventually figure something out or he'll just stay up for hours. Cecily has never been a good day time sleeper and gave up on naps a long time ago so Im really hoping Oliver wont be the same way. When he is awake he isnt very content, its like he doesnt know what he needs so he'll just be fussy and need to be held/rocked/bounced, this is when the backpack comes in real handy, He really likes feeling close to you and tight so he is swaddled most of the time.Oliver developed some acne this week, but its already starting to get better, thank goodness we want him looking pretty to meet all his family when we go to UT/ID/WA/CA in a couple of weeks.
He Loves Kreg and Often times Kreg is the only one that can calm him down
Cecily is so good with him, she is always singing to him or talking to him trying to keep him happy. When I am holding him and he is sad she will tell me that Oli wants Dad or Oli really likes Dad. She gets so concerned when he cries.
He is getting big so fast, I had to put away all the Newborn sleepers away this week and bring out the 0-3 month he is just to long for the others. He wears some NB and some 0-3 month onsies, he has a really long torso and super short legs so he is still in NB pants. Looks like I have another one built like the Wagner's.
Cecily is so nice to share her baby with him!
We just love our little guy and feel so blessed to have him in our home. I know this part of the Newborn stage can be hard but even still I am loving every minute of him being little because I know how fast it will be over and he will be up and running and making us laugh at the funny things he'll say!
