Little man is almost 9 weeks old! I know I say it all the time but time absolutely flies with little ones. I returned to work on October 9th when he was one day shy of 6 weeks. It was really hard leaving him, but going back to a job that I absolutely love made it a tad bit easier.
My mother-in-law is keeping him so that gives me great peace of mind while I am away from him all day. His two big sisters are just smitten with him and are in his face all day long. Blakely loves to hold him and help with him. We are still super careful with him around Rowan, but she loves to give him kisses and is always saying, "Hey Buber (brother)."
He still sleeps next to our bed in his Rock-n-Play. He began sleeping through the night at 5 weeks old (much to the enjoyment of Mommy) and averages around 10 hours of sleep at night. I didn't experience this with my girls until they were around 9 months old so I am loving this new trend. I still swaddle him every night as he loves to be tight and warm.
He is exclusively formula fed now, because nursing with 3 little ones to care for and returning to work full time was just too much for me to handle.
At his 6 week visit, he weighed 9 lbs. 6 oz. So I would guess he is probably around 10 lbs now, although he still feels very tiny to me. He is currently in 0-3 month clothing but can still get away with a couple of newborn outfits.
We got to see him smile for the first time at around 6 weeks old. However, every time I tried to get a picture, he would get a deer in the headlights look. It was hilarious! He is now getting more comfortable with having his picture taken so I was finally able to snap a good picture last week.
Sometimes it is hard to believe that I am the mother of 3 now! It is a ton of work but I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world.
