Look at me! I am now six weeks old (actually I was six weeks old on Wednesday but my Mama was not on the ball enough to get this post ready).
I now weigh 10 pounds and 9 ounces and am 22.5 inches long (at least we think so).
I didn’t have an appointment this week but Mama was dying to know how much I weigh so she and Daddy got creative and measured me with a fruit scale from the barn.
I have changed so much in the past two weeks. I am starting to lose some of the hair on the front of my head (boo) but the hair in the back is just as thick and dark as ever. I don’t think Mom’s going to be able to put my hair in a ponytail by 2 months, though.
I can hold my head up really really well now. I am always looking around and discovering new things. I follow people with my eyes and I noticed my puppy dog for the first time today. I think she and I will be good friends.
When I’m not holding my head up and wobbling it all around, I love to curl up and cuddle. I am such a snuggle bug. Mommy and Daddy are very happy for this because they love to cuddle, too.
I don’t really love tummy time unless I am laying on someone’s chest. But Mommy makes me do it anyways.
I still love my bath more than anything else. I think would sit in the tub all day if Mom let me.
I recognize my Mommy and Daddy real well and almost always greet them with a big goofy grin. Daddy was away for a few days and as soon as he came back, I gave him a big smile.
Speaking of big goofy grins, I smile all.the.time. Sometimes, when I’m smiling, Mommy thinks I am trying to laugh. I coo and tell stories all the time now, too. I am such a happy girl!
I was sleeping really good for my Mom but then I decided to have two nights where I gave her a run for her money. I am pretty sure I’ll start sleeping better for her again soon (right????). I still nap great, though .. and Mommy appreciates that.
I nurse for about 5-10 minutes every 2.5-4 hours depending on my mood. I definitely know what I want and I will not eat until I’m ready. Sometimes Mom doesn’t know what I’m up to because I act like I’m hungry but then I won’t eat. I just like to keep her on her toes.
I am growing and changing every single day and I just know my Mommy and Daddy are loving every minute of it.
