Sorry I didn’t post yesterday, things were kinda hectic around here. Liam was up from 9 am until about 2:30 pm with a few short 30 min naps scattered throughout the day! It seems as though today is also going to be one of those days! I did manage to take his four week picture this morning when he was in a really good mood 🙂
I had such a hard time deciding which picture to use, he had so many good faces. This week has been a huge week for us. It is remarkable how much he changes daily. Not only the way he looks but his temperment. He seems to be getting more “mature”.. haha
This week we started bottle feeding
which didn’t go great at first but he is learning to like the bottle. He loves to look at Erik while he is feeding him, it is really heartwarming :). I wonder if babies get confused when someone other than their momma feeds them.
Let’s see… sleeping… That is an interesting topic, Liam sleeps very well at night but during the day is a bit of a different story. It’s not that he is fussy during the day, he is just awake.. I think he is starting to be able to focus on the things around him more and he is interested. He used to sleep for nice 3 hour stretches at least twice during the day, but now we are down to a few 30 minute naps and maybe one three hour hap from like 2-5ish.
I’ve been reading that it is typical for babies under 6 weeks to be pretty fussy, so I would say Liam is right on track. We’ve been trying to get him into a routine for bedtime. We give him a bath every 2 or so days, change him, Erik feeds him a bottle (around 2 oz), then burps him, changes him again if he needs it, then I take him and breastfeed until he falls asleep. We tried this last night and everyone seemed to like it, so hopefully that keeps up. Speaking of baths, he loves them, Erik is really good at getting the temperature just right for him. I can’t wait until he gets a little bigger and he can splash around!
He also took a few naps in his crib this week.
Well really only one real nap because when we put him in his crib unless he is already sleeping, he just looks around and kicks and punches. He loves to just lay in there and stare at the ceiling fan. He is also starting to like tummy time a lot more.
His neck is wicked strong, but I think he gets frustrated that he isn’t going anywhere when he moves his legs.
I’ve managed to do two workouts this week. Chest/triceps and back/biceps. It’s sad to say but I am slightly sore. I guess that’s what happens when you don’t workout for months! You can take a look at my workout schedule on my Jefit site.
My weight loss is going well, I set a goal for myself when I started that I wanted to lose the first 20 lbs in the first month and I did! 20.2 lbs to be exact. I hope now that I am starting to do some light weight lifting the rest of the pounds will drop in no time. haha. I can wish!I hope everyone has a great day!
