How long is he sleeping?
I'll usually swaddle him up and put him down around 9:30 (after feeding him). He'll usually then sleep for about 6-8 hours, wake up, eat, and then do another 3-4 hours. I think this is pretty awesome compared to our old 2 hr routine. However, once Micah's asleep at 9:30pm, I am frantically trying to do laundry, clean up, do dishes, shower, and pump. On a good night, I'm asleep at 11pm and up again in 4 hours. Still, this feels pretty good.
Is he sleeping through the night?
This is so subjective. I give the same answer I gave above (6-8 hours) and some people are amazed and others act like they pity me. Your definition of "through the night" might be different than mine, but in my book, I appreciate my 6 hours and don't expect any more for quite some time (or ever?) LOL.
How are the dogs with him?
How's he eating?
This one amuses me. He eats like a champ. It's his favorite activity. Do babies have any other hobbies besides eating?
Are you having fun?
Do you see the smile on my face?
(Even when he's screaming!)
Of course, I'm having fun. Being a mom is the most amazing thing I have ever experienced.
How big is he?
This one is ever-changing of course. But so far, he remains in the 95th percentile for height and the 25th percentile for weight. Right now that means, almost 25 inches long and almost 11 lbs.
Who does he look like?
This one is easy! Definitely all Eli! He has the Hosack nose, and maybe my ears. But the rest is Eli. Blue eyes, straight brown hair (even the same hair line!), chin, forehead, etc. Check out Eli's baby photo next to this one of Micah:
And then there's this classic shot. What more do you need?
Oh, how I love these 2 boys!!!!
