Nathaniel Update

All of the pictures from yesterday are of Katherine because 1) She was mobile 2) we didn’t spend all day shielding her from getting too much sun and 3) she wasn’t sleeping (see Point 1).  But Nathaniel also had a very good day out.  While Katherine was riding high on the top of the stroller he was nicely tucked beneath, sleeping and enjoying the fresh air that passed over his bed.  He really seemed to prefer a bit of movement, so I kept the stroller moving and he swayed gently back and forth.  And I could use him as an excuse anytime Sydney accused me of running ahead.

At 7 1/2 weeks he is becoming a lot of fun.  He’s big enough to make it difficult for me to remember that he isn’t even two months old–which means I forget that he might still want to eat every 1 1/2 hours or so.  This past week he started sleeping for longer and longer periods of time at night, so that I had four-to-six hour stretches each night for most nights of the week.  That means he is, technically, sleeping through the night.  And I am feeling better and having a lot fewer headaches as a result.  He makes wonderful cooing noises and really prefers to sleep propped up on a pillow.  And when he’s fussy his father is the one who most easily makes him happy again.

    He didn’t, of course, keep to that lovely schedule last night. So now I’m back to feeling off. But at least I know he can do it!
