6 weeks old

Baby V is 6 weeks old today! He has grown and changed so much in the past month and half. He is a BIG baby for his age! He was 10 1/2 lbs at his one month appointment so I can only imagine how much he weighs now.

This is what I have learned as a new mom in the past 6 weeks:

  • Swaddles are a necessity--we learned this early on and we swaddle him everynight for bed

  • Pacifiers are your friend--I initially didn't want to use pacifiers at all but when he was about 2 weeks old and just wanted to suck on something 24/7, the pacifier seemed a better option than the alternative...

  • Tubby time is only fun when Mommy is in the tub as well--he hates being in the baby bathtub by himself, so we take tubs together but they are actually really enjoyable now.

  • Always cover a cute outfit with a bib if you want it to last more than 5 minutes--enough said.

  • Likewise, always pack a couple extra outfits for the baby and at least one extra shirt for yourself when going out.

  • There is always a solution to crying (I know this is not always true for a lot of babies but so far it seems to apply to him).

  • Mornings are now cute time--he is all smiles and little giggles right when he wakes up and his fluffy hair is all disheveled.

  • Swings and baby packs are the only way to get anything done!
I'm sure there is more but everyday is a learning experience!
