Elijah: 10 Weeks

Weight: On Monday you were 14 pounds 14 ounces before eating! 15 lbs 3 ounces after!
Height: no update
Clothes: You are in 3-6 month clothes. And some of them not for long! I hated putting away your small 0-3 month clothes because it means you are getting so big, but also because many of them you wore only once! It is fun, however, to move into a bigger size because there are new adorable outfits to wear!
Diapers: One size cloth, and we even had to move up a snap rise. I didn't want to, but some of the girls in my CD group suggested it might help with leaks and they were right! I love seeing your adorable cloth diaper butt! When we had our car ride you wore disposables and when I patted your butt it felt like you were naked underneath your pants! I am used to a fluffy butt!
Sleep: On your 10 week birthday you slept for 8 hours in a row! Yay! We have been putting you down for your long stretch between 9 and 10 most nights. The key is mommy going to bed at that time too. You have also slept in your bed for naps several times. You sleep in the woombie best. I tried to let you have one arm out for a nap that other day and you woke up every 5-10 minutes. As soon as I put your arm in, you were out for 2 hours! You sleep about 12-14 hours total most days, so much of your day is spent sleeping still!
Eating: Eating continues to be one of your favorite past times! You usually eat every 2-3 hours during the day. You have taken a few more bottles, so that is good. It makes me feel better about going back to work. 
Likes: Laying on your back and kicking, smiling at us, bath time, lights and windows, ceiling fans, and hugs, kisses and snuggles. You love when I give you lots of kisses!
Dislikes: Being tired and hungry (the main times you cry). You continue to think Tummy Time=THE WORST THING THAT HAS EVER HAPPENED IN THE ENTIRE WORLD.
Health: You are a healthy boy! We have noticed for about a month that your left eye seems to turn in more than your right eye. At your 1 month appointment the doctor said it will most likely correct itself. But of course Mommy worries! You continue to LOVE when we go to the chiropractor and you get your neck stretched.
Oh! And this: We went away for Mommy's "Girls' Weekend at the Cabin" and you were fabulous the whole time! You did GREAT in the car (apparently you like highway driving) and you slept well. It was so fun to have all those "Aunties" around to wear you and snuggle and play all the time!
New Tricks: You have discovered how fun it is to suck on everything: your hands, a shirt, your wubbanub, anything! You even have started to hold onto things like a blanket, my shirt, or your wubbanub with purpose! It is fun to see you hold your wubbanub like that!
