7 weeks

Thomas really wasn't into this photo at all :)

He loves his swing!!

7 weeks have already passed by and he's getting so big too quickly!! Thomas really is a good baby - he's always so smiley and cooing away. I've been working on his nighttime routine and it's coming along quite nicely. We identified his witching hour - really anyone could - he would just cry for no reason and wasn't consolable for that time period. It started to happen around 6 pm (now 7 pm because of DST) so I started getting him ready for bed around that time. He's usually asleep by 8 pm and does one 5-6 hour stretch at night then wakes up around 4 hours later - I'm not complaining at all!! He does nurse more frequently during the day - like every 2 hours - but so worth it for the nighttime rest.

It's been in the 70s this past week so we've been outside with brother every day. A neighbor of mine just had her baby girl 3 weeks after Thomas and she has an almost 5 year old so we've been hanging out a lot!

Both kiddos are napping so I'm going to get some things done around this house - or read my book!

Enjoy the sunshine!


  1. I vote to read your book : ) Lauren is supposed to be napping now too - all I hear in the other room is things flying out of her crib and her laughing.

    Thomas is growing up so fast!! Glad to hear he is sleeping well : )

  2. Wow, can't believe Thomas is almost 2 months old but can't believe little Henry is getting closer to the two mark either... enjoy them, they grow up so fast. Hope to see you all again before the kids get too big... guess I should of had more kids so there were more weddings to come back for.. haha.
