3 Weeks Old

MaTai is 3 weeks old today!

*He is holding his head up and is getting really strong.

*Hates being bundled, and is a little escape artist who is out of his swaddle every time I check on him.

*Messes through so many diapers a day! It's ridiculous. They are all such tiny 'deposits' but I feel bad leaving him in a messy diaper for any amount of time.

*Is starting to smile, look around, make faces and be alert. He sees a tv or computer screen and fixates on it, but we are trying to keep him away from 'screen time.'

*Has had grandparents here every weekend since he was born, they can't get enough of him. I heard my dad whispering to my mom "let's just raise him ourselves."

*Is doing great at differentiating between night and day. He is staying alert and awake a lot longer, with his eyes wide open. (They are bright blue right now, we hope they don't change!)

*He is getting more vocal and making noise. He grunts at you if you bother him him while he sleeps. He sqwaks at me when he want something, he keeps us on our toes.

*He had his first bath(s) in the sink, his tub and also showered twice, once with mom and once with dad. He sat and licked the water off my arms like a puppy, and absolutely loves the water.

We love him, he makes our family complete and we don't know where we would be without this sweet boy.
