Getting Settled

All is going well here at Chez DeLong - I thought I'd post an update while we're waiting for Kirky's home laptop to get back up and running. Will is trying to figure out his feeding/sleeping schedule - on Monday he was fussy for most of Monday night - Tuesday morning though he slept off-and-on throughout the day. Last night, we tried to keep him awake through baby-play from 5-9 just keeping his tummy satisfied and then gave him a big feeding just before bed. That seemed to do the trick and we got a lot more sleep than normal.

His attention span is expectedly short - he can only be in a particular position for a short amount of time. For instance, during last night's play session we had him on his tummy on a blanket on the floor for about 5 minutes, then into my arms, then in his crib, then in his swing, and finally his bouncer before going back to Kirky. This is when he's awake and alert, of course.

I'm really surprised at how active he is for only being 2wks, 4 days. He's lifting his head up, staring at objects, moving around like a wiggle worm and even grabbing at things like his pacifier.

He's back up to his birth weight and is a health, happy kid. We're very, very lucky.
