9 Weeks Old

I thought I should post an update on Hunter since he is already 9 weeks old. It has gone by so fast. At 9 weeks, he has grown about 5 inches and weighs double his birthweight (14 pounds). He is completely out of his 0-3 month clothing. I can't believe how big he is.
Recently, he started opening his hands, grabbing for his bottle, making a high pitch "mommy I want my food" cry and sucking his fist. These firsts were so cute to witness. Since I didn't post an update before this, I should mention he has been smiling for a very long time. I believe he started between weeks 2 and 3. Now his smiles are accompanied by a wonderful set of cooing noises. When he really gets going, he lifts his chin, and his smile reaches ear to ear!

This is all so amazing, but it truly is going fast. I thought being at home with no work would slow the passage of time, but it hasn't. These years are going to go by in the blink of an eye.

Aww I miss those days! Makes me want another one (kind of). I don't miss the broken up sleep. Is Hunter sleeping through the night yet or at least on to two sleep periods with one feeding between?

I wish I had blogged every week as Silas was learning new stuff. I have lots of photos of "I found my feet" and "I found my hands" and they're all dated on my Facebook page so I have that (and I've transferred them over to my Snapfish account and can print them) but it's not the same.

Are you doing a written baby book/journal? We did but as I was doing it I was thinking, "I should write one of these, this is not what I want to be recording for this month really." They're all kind of boring.

Liz, right now Hunter does 1-2 feedings a night going to bed late. So he is pretty much waking up every 3 to 4 hours. I am really trying to get him to sleep through the night. I recently started getting up with him when he wakes and just rocking him back to sleep with no feeding. I am hoping this will get the ball rolling in the next couple of days. Have you ever tried this? Any advice on how to make this work?

We are not doing a written baby book/journal. I agree with you, I decided against them because they are boring. Hey if you write a good one, I will be right there in line to buy it with my next little one :D

I had a few minutes to blog so I am checking in on you! Fun to hear how your baby is growing! When my babies were little, they never slept at night till we were done Breastfeeding....
