How’s Henry?

Henry will be six weeks old on Sunday! Hard to believe isn’t it?
It all kind of runs together for me. He is still eating every 2-3 hours with his longest stretch at maybe 4 hours. There is still no established routine to his behavior though some trends are appearing. He is fairly awake/fussy in the early morning hours. He will take a good solid 2 hour nap in the afternoon. He eats better in the evening and best overnight.

So far we haven’t had these milestones: a full night’s sleep or a smile. Hoping for either or both of those soon!

Given how little continuous sleep I’m getting, I am very happy I’m not going back to work at the predetermined six week mark.

Will post more pictures soon.

    I think I remember the full night’s sleep mile stone being predicted at approximately 6 months. And technically “sleeping through the night” means 6 hours at a stretch, so even when it is achieved, it’s not always the full 8 to 8 that you are perhaps envisioning. But he and you will get there eventually! Enjoy your remaining 6 weeks!
