6 Weeks

Dear Jocelynne,

Daddy got to go with us to the baby clinic and you are up to 10lbs 8.5oz. Stop growing that's an order from Mummy and Daddy. This week you have been smiling more when people talk to you or tickle you, every time Mummy tries to grab the camera you do your little old man faces though.

Last week on Tuesday we got to meet up with all but one of the mums and babies from out birthing class, even with all the weight you have put on your still one of the runts there is only one baby smaller than you! Though you have put on the most weight since birth as all the other babies were born between 8lbs and 9lbs 8oz.

Mummy has been expressing milk for a freezer stash and this week while Daddy has been off we have been working on introducing the bottle to you. Your still not sure what to make of it, you have realized you can get the milk but are not impressed by the delivery system and after you finished your first bottle with Daddy you jump right on the breast and looked at me like I was crazy for ever thing you would want a bottle.

When you fall asleep all snuggled in the crook of my arm I can't imagine life with out you.

Mummy and Daddy love you so much!

Did you ever say which birthing classes you took? Do we get to hear a birth story sometime soon? :)

I'm so glad your birthing classmates are now part of your support system. That's awesome!
