8 Weeks

Today Jacob is 8 weeks. He will be two months old on April 17th. I can't believe how much he has grown in just a short time. He looks so different. Jake and I have been battling each other for the past month or so with sleeping. After blogging with Lindsay and other fellow bloggers I went out and bought a few books in hopes that I could train myself on how to get my son to sleep. I feel like I am slowly figuring him out and his sleep habits. Last night he slept. From 8:30 pm-1:00 pm and then got up to feed and was back down in 15 and then back up at 4:00 am to feed and back down in 15. Then he got up at 7:00 am for the morning, ate then played and was back down at 9:00 am for his morning nap until 11:00 am. He then got up to eat and play for a little while and went back down at 12:00 pm for his afternoon nap. Now he is sleeping. I am not sure how long but I am making a record of his sleep times to get him into more of a routine.

He is eating about 3 ounces still. Just when I think he wants to go up to 4 he won't finish the last 1. He is talking and smiling a lot. I still haven't gotten a laugh out of him but I am working on it. He is an amazing little person and I thank God everyday that he bought him into my life. I can't imagine my life without him.

He is going to kill me when he is older

11 pounds 8 ounces
