Jay Update: 8 weeks

Jay is now 8 weeks old!
He is fatter...yep he is a growing boy. He has outgrown almost all of his newborn outfits, and is on to his 3 month clothes...which makes it fun to play dress up! He also opens his hands more instead of keeping his fists clenched. He is enjoying toys and follows them a lot better than he used to. He also drools a lot (significantly more than a week ago). I wonder why? He has missed "comfort feedings" these last few days while I am recovering from surgery, but has coped with bouncing and being sung to:)
His hair is awesome. It is bald at the top, wispy in the middle and long at the bottom. When he gets angry and cries it gets all sweaty and then it sticks up. I'm working on getting a good picture of it:)
Here is a chinny smile.

Here is a shirt my sister made for him that says "mr. fussy" :)

He is still a crabby little man, but we are noticing some times when he will just sit or lay and be happy for like 10-15 min. at a time!

He hasn't been sleeping quite as much lately during the day (although it may be harder for him to fall asleep without breastfeeding). On the other hand, during John's first night on baby duty, Jay slept until 4:30am, and last night he slept from 10:30pm-5:30am! Lucky guys! (I still have to get up in the middle of the night to pump!)

We have a Dr. appointment on Monday, so we will see how big he really is! He also will get a bunch of shots, so he will probably be crabby. I have a great video of him crying, but I will save it for a post when I need to complain:)
