Max turns 7 weeks old tomorrow. It seems like he was just born yesterday, and already I am behind with sharing pictures. So, get ready for picture overload!
(These are just a few notes to help me remember. I’m not the best at filling out baby books, but I love to look back on my blog posts of the kids and read what they were doing at different ages.)
As you can see, he is changing fast and has really filled out. Those cheeks are so big that they just rest on his chest. Sometimes I think it looks like he can barely hold them up! He gets that double chin from me – It looks just like the one on my baby pictures. I love his little Michelin man arms – with the little roll every inch and a half. He is just starting to smile with regularity. We had a few in the past, but most have come in the last week. He also rolled over this week, but it’s kind of early so that just might be a fluke. We shall see. He is sleeping good so far. He gets up twice a night but goes back to sleep. His fussy time is in the evening, so he gets held a lot them. We do the circuit – first we try the bouncy chair, then rocking, then the swing, then tummy time, then the floor, then holding him a different way, all until we find just the right thing and he finally falls asleep. He is getting much more alert during the day, when he is up between naps. He takes the best naps in the swing, which is exactly what Carter did. Carter is still adjusting to having a little brother. Most of the time it goes well and he is excited to see him. He still asks for me to put the baby away when he wants more attention, but the other night he said “I wub you Max” all on his own and then blew him kisses.
And one last picture – just because he is almost naked and I thought some of you might be able to come up with a good caption for this one 😉
