Dear Baby G

  • Here you are, 6 weeks old. It’s a big milestone. You are very alert and active. And I am sure you are aware of more than we realize. You like to sit on the couch, propped up in your Boppy, between Mommy and Daddy, preferably with one of us holding your hand. Of course, most of all, you love to be held. As much as possible. If you wake up from a nap on your own, you give a startled little jump.
  • Like I say, you are very aware of your surroundings. You love to stare at Daddy when he gets home from work. You can see and react when I hold your paci in front of you. We’re getting better about operating within your (very shallow) field of vision, so I know that helps.
  • The other night, I was putting on your pajamas, and when I buttoned one of the snaps on your pajamas, I snagged your skin with my fingernail. It didn’t even discolor your skin, but it still snagged you. And you screamed. Boy, you screamed. And I held you and apologized and asked if you were okay. And you threw your head back and stuck your bottom lip out and glared at me with a look of the utmost betrayal. Twice.
  • You do fantastically when Mommy has to take you to run errands. We try not to cram too much into one trip. The other day we went to the postal annex and had to stand in line for a while. You were the darling of the room. You were awake and flashing your bright blue eyes at everyone. Or course, I think you were the only person with blue eyes in the building :)
  • And now you’re ready to eat again, so I’ll stop this here. Mommy will try and be better about recording more goings-on.
