Well Samuel is 6 weeks old today. I can't believe it. It is getting fun! Samuel can fit in his 0-3 month clothes now so we have more options than just onesies for him to wear. Yesterday I SWEAR he smiled when I kissed him. My Mom saw it too, so I am not making it up. He hasn't done it since...But I have to remember that even though is 6 weeks old, since he was a little early he may not be where every 6 weeker is. I mean he can only get to "H" in the alphabet. I can also tell his cries apart now. I know hunry, wet, tired and gas.
Samuel has been gassy and not happy for a few days now. Yesterday he even decided he only needed to eat half of his bottle. Being the first time Mom I am I took him to the doctor. So anyhow it is either reflux or he may even be allergic to soy! Great. So now I am trying this super expensive formula for a few days to see if it helps. Sercertly I am hoping it isn't the allergy thing. But I don't want it to be reflux either. He sleeps sitting up now to help with that. But thankfully it is nothing serious and additionally he gained a pound. He is now 8 pounds 9 ounces!
I think the last 6 weeks caught up on us though. We need sleep!!! I am so tired I forgot to take pictures of him Monday and Tuesday! Oh and I forgot his diaper bag when we went to visit my sister. That cost us $50.00! We had to go buy formula and diapers. Well they will get put to use.
