|Hi Everyone !|
Well at the time of this update (5 April), I am almost 9 weeks old. I am getting used to my new world. I have started being able to recognize my Mama and Daddy and Brother (Glenn). I also respond with smiles and coos to my Grandparents and my extended Grandparents (Bill and Liz Crum).
I am a morning baby. Seems like every time I wake up from a good nap, I am happy. I respond with lots of precious smiles and sweet noises. I am sleeping well. I sleep in 4 to 6 hour stretches most nights. I generally go straight back to sleep after I eat and get a clean diaper at night. Boy am I going through the diapers (I am wearing the size 2 – 12 to 16 pounds). I am not particular about the brand. At this point my skin seems to be sensitive to the insulation and sheetrock dust that I get on me from Mama and Daddy working on the house addition more than anything else. When I was born, my skin was very dry. The Doctor said it was because I was so late. I could not take many baths then, but I am enjoying it now. I have lots of fun in the tub. Maybe because I get a lot of face-to-face time with Mama.
I love lying on the changing table (even though the heating pad got turned off once the weather started getting warmer). Again, it is probably the face-to-face entertainment I get while I am there. I am definitely a “people person”. I do, however, tend to wake up and just lay in my crib and look around for a while before I demand attention.
There is quite a bit for my new little eyes to learn to focus on and each day seems to be a new day. I am enjoying the swing that I was given by the folks Mama works with, but get bored with it when I get left alone in it too long – otherwise I will stay in it most of the day with Mama, Daddy, or Glenn talking and playing with me. I also enjoy the play mat that my cousin Ashley gave me (one of many things that have been passed along from Zoe and the twins). I am starting to look for new toys and enjoy the bright clowns on the mobile over my crib.
I also like the bright colors in my room – they are primary colors and feature, hanging on the walls, two quilts made by my Great-grandmothers. Glenn had them on his walls too. I like to spend some days at Granny’s and have spent a few nights with Mama and Brother at Grandma and Grandpa’s house. I like these new places – they are much brighter that our house right now. Our house is kind of closed in because we are still trying to get the addition complete. I have stayed with Ma-Crum a couple of times and seem to be very content there too. I seem happiest when I am on something kind of soft and propped up to look or laying down exercise.
