Week 3

Callan turned 3 weeks old -time is flying. Huge's parents are visiting from Montreal so it's been great having them help around the house and they are loving the time with Callan even though it's cutting into my snuggle time with him. We didn't do much this week since the grandparents are visiting, but the weather was unseasonably warm (in the 80's) so we were able to get in a few walks while the little guy was sleeping. We're still trying to figure out a schedule, but for now he seems to be eating about 2 to 2.5 ounces every 2ish hours during the day (still bottle feeding breastmilk) and at night we've been able to stretch out his sleeps and he usually gets in one good 3-4 hour stretch (a few times he's even done 5 hours!), but nothing consistent. He's averaging 21-25 ounces a day, so he's pretty much right on track, but sometimes it's hard to tell if he's fussing because he's still hungry or he wants to suck. He's been getting fussy in the evenings, which we thought was due to him wanting to eat a bit more frequently before bed, but other times it seems to be an overload of gas... hopefully we can rectify this so he's more comfortable and sleeps a bit better. He's still sleeping in the bassinet in our room, but I'm hoping to start transitioning him to the crib soon. I think once the grandparents leave this week we'll be able to start transitioning him into a better routine both for naps during the day as well as sleeping in the crib.

Callan also had his first bath this week and he loved it. He was content the entire time he was in the water and didn't fuss at all. We will see what happens the next time -hopefully he'll enjoy bath time. Otherwise, nothing else new to report. We had a play date with Michael (Lauren and Ted's baby) and the babies both slept almost the entire time. We took Callan in the Moby to their house and took Callan in his first cab. He was all snuggly in the Moby so he was perfect in the cab both there and back. We're looking forward to lots of summer play dates before I have to go back to work.

I can't believe how big Callan looks now and how much he's changed in the last few weeks. He definitely is taller and bigger than before. Sadly he's outgrown his newborn clothes! We put him in a few of the outfits and his legs and feet are squished and one outfit looks like shorts on him! *sigh*, I'm sure this won't be the last time I say how fast he's changing so I'm just going to enjoy him being an infant for now (even when he's screaming his head off!) and cherish the quiet moments with him... My two guys are delicious :)
