Jacob will be 6 weeks on Wednesday. Can't believe how quickly the time has passed. At his 1 month appointnent last week he was 10 lb 4 oz up from 7lb 1 oz at birth. Definitely don't have to worry if he's getting enough mill. He was 21 3/4 inches long. He still won't take a paci. We did introduce a bottle of pumped milk and he took that okay. He is finally sleeping for one 4 hour stretch at night which is nice.
Here are a few of his latest pictures.
Thank you *Kiliki* for my beautiful siggy
JR will be 6 weeks on Thursday. At his 1 month check up last week, he was 11.1 pounds and 23.5 inches tall, up from 8.9 pounds and 21.5 inches! We definetly don't have any worries about him getting enough milk. He might have reflux but it doesn't seem to bothering him, so for now we're calling him a happy spitter. He's already trying to roll from his back to his side on his floor gym and loves to spend his awake time watching his big sister.
Grant will be 4 weeks old on Wednesday and 1 month old on Saturday. I weighed him this morning and he's about 11.5lbs. He was up to 22.5" at his 2 week appt. He was born at 9lbs, 12 oz and 21". He's a little chunker
He's doing really well nursing and is starting to sleep more. He is smiling socially now and not just in his sleep. He's also holding his head up really well and he can roll both ways, so we have to really pay attention to where we put him down.
Blakely will be 5 weeks on thursday. She is 10.5 lbs, up from 6.10 at birth. She didnt have a 1 month apptment but I weighed her at home. I also have the measuring tape from birth and shes about 22 inches from 20 1/4.
You can't tell in this picture because its brand new growth, but her roots are coming in white just like my DH's did...instead of falling out. So that means I'm going to have to have her beautiful dark baby hair cut off DH's 2.5 month pictures looked horrid with his white hair and black tips. My MIL said people always assumed she had dyed it.
She has smiled small social smiles a couple of times but nothing regular yet.

Archer will be 6 weeks Thursday. He didn't have a one month appt. His ped doesn't do them. But DH got on the scale with and without him and he was at least 10 pounds now. He is out of newborn clothes and wears anything from 3 to 9 months. I guess the 9 month clothes we have are small or something. He has laughed out loud a few times. but it's when I am doing patty cake with him. I think he just smiles so big he laughs without realizing how to do it. Here are some pics from last night.
He has had a strong neck since week one. My other boys were never this strong.
His fussy face at tummy time. he only likes it when on my belly.
Thanks PrincessMom08 for my wonderful siggy!
Cole is a little over 5 weeks old. He was measured on Friday and was 9lbs 14oz and 22inches long. He started socially smiling last week which is just so much fun! Chase gets the most smiles We can't wait for giggles to start! Cole loves tummy time and his head control is really developing. He also has really strong little legs that want to get moving already lol. He is such a wiggle worm. His hair is starting to fall out in front so we will see if it grows in blonde like Chase's did!
Here's my guy:
Enjoying his play mat:
Thanks so much *Kiliki* for my awesome summer siggie!
Maiya is 4 weeks today...she seems to follow us a bit with her eyes, but thats the extent of her interaction right now...she has some head control and tries to pick her head up whenever she is on my chest...her reflux is pretty bad right now, just waiting for it to get better so she can be a bit more comfortable...
Abby was six weeks on Sunday. I don't know how big she is, she doesn't have a well baby check until 2 months. But two weeks ago DH weighed himself, and then again when he was holding Abby and there was a 9lb difference, so I'm guessing she's somewhere between 9 and 10 lbs. We JUST moved her from NB clothes into 0-3 month clothes because the NB clothes were getting tight length-wise. And this past weekend she started sleeping through the night....I feed her between 10 and 11, and she sleeps all the way until 6-7 am, which amazes me because she's still on just breastmilk, but I will take it!
Here are some recent pictures from Sunday and yesterday :
