Last week my baby Bear turned six whole weeks old. Six weeks! Where the dickens did that time go?
Now, I'm not a huge fan of baby updates, I'll be honest, I don't often read them unless it's a big milestone like a year. It's not that I don't care, but I've already been there once and typically they're all roughly the same, and if they're not, they will be soon. I, not sure if they're entirely such a good idea to read if you're the type of person that gets competitive over their child.
But I figured that because it was six weeks and I've been pretty quiet about my little man, I'd share just for fun (I won't be cross if you don't read it though, I promise).
So Bear's doing really well, the health visitor I took him to see yesterday was very thrilled with him and his 'lovely skin'...I'm not sure if she genuinely thought he was a lovely baby as he laid about nude, babbling and smiling, or if she was just so relieved to be having a conversation without an interpreter or hindered by a heavy accent (yes, we live in one of those areas). Weight is average. Height above average and interestingly (for me), head slightly below...it's interesting because we are a family of big heads, the first I've our GP saw Moo, he felt the need to comment on her large head.
He is smiling, babbling, attempting to laugh, winding himself and lifting his head well. He's also doing all those medical things like turning towards light, sound and string at me for seemingly hours on end.
He isn't letting me sleep or opening his palms up.
My next step is to get him out of the swaddle and into a sleeping bag as he keeps wriggling free and pulling the blanket over is head which makes me nervous.
So there we have it...6 weeks...please stop growing so fast little baby!
