the boy



I decided that after his 2 month post...I was no longer going to do a weekly post like I did for his first 8 weeks.  But at the end of last week- I felt like I hadn't taken his picture in a while and that already....so quickly....he's changing so much.



New last week:  we had some difficulties with nursing that I was going to write all about just to vent, but now the moment has passed and so it seems unimportant.  I never knew about "nursing strikes"...but Nolan had one last week and it made me sort of upset for many reasons....not to mention a little nervous leading into my first weekend back at work.  In a nutshell- I think we are past all of this and even after working all weekend, we seem to have picked up where we left off (thankful to the Lord for this).



New this week: my baby has pretty much outgrown his 0-3 month clothes. {sniff sniff}.  I knew they were getting tighter, but last night I tried to put him in a 0-3 month sleeper and poor guy.....his toes were squished down and unable to straighten....and the arms of the shirt almost went to his elbows.  He seriously grew an inch over the weekend, I think!  So today- the plan is to pack up all of the 0-3 month clothes and move in the 3-6 month clothes into his drawers.  He's still in size 1 diapers, but by the time we finish the mega box we have now- I think I'll be buying size 2.



Sleeping: we usually get him down between 7:30 and 8:30 and has been waking up between 3:30 and 5:30, eating, then going right back down.  I'm pretty happy about this.

Napping: still inconsistent....usually only 45 minutes at a time.  But he's having longer periods of happy awake time, so in another month or so I'm thinking we'll be on more of a morning and afternoon nap schedule with maybe a catnap in the evening.



This boy has completely stolen my heart.  Thankful and blessed that he is growing and healthy.  But it's all definitely bittersweet.
