My intention was to get this post up on Thursday, but, as I am learning, there are so many other things that take precedence with my time, so it has turned into my weekly picture post. Oh well...the info is still the same.
The boys seemed to "grow up" right before my eyes this week. For Jacob, he completed the move to his new room this week. He no longer sleeps in the crib at night, but sleeps in his big boy bed. He's done it for a week now and has done great. It is a little disconcerting in the morning to hear the pitter patter of little feet as he 'escapes' from his room in the morning-something we'll have to get used to. I think he really enjoys the freedom to get in and out of bed as he pleases. After nearly a year of waking early and waiting up to 30 min. for Mom to come rescue him from bed, he is up and running on his own schedule now. The rest of his clothes that hadn't been transferred from the nursery, were moved too. He seems happy in "his" room.
As for Luke, he moved up to size 1 diapers on Thursday, proof he's getting bigger. Of course, I can tell he's putting on weight as I carry him around and dress him. Some of the newborn clothes don't fit already. Several nights this week, he has had a stretch of over 3 hrs between feedings. Yes, the 2-3 hr stretches still occur, day and night, but any longer stretches are welcomed and encouraged. We had a day or two of power feeding (every 2 hrs all day), so I think he may be in a growth spurt. He also has a bit of the baby acne, a sign he's releasing unneeded mommy hormones. His awake time has increased dramatically too. Thursday was night and day from Wednesday - being awake for multiple 1-hour stretches during the day instead of minutes. He wants to be held a lot, which can be hard sometimes, but we are managing. He'll have to learn to be entertained on his own, we're working on it. Finally, during tummy time, he rolled to his back a few times-accidentally, I'm sure, but it shows his growing strength. Go here for the rest of this week's pictures.
