How's Ollie doing?

Brilliant is the short answer...
  • He now weighs 9lbs 9... nearly 10lbs!  Hard to believe that some people give birth to babies this big.  I'm really noticing a difference in his size... :)

  • He is getting strong... especially his neck.  He loves lifting his head up and looking around... especially when lying on your chest... his favourite place to be.

  • When lying on your chest he now grasps your clothing either side as if he is giving a hug (or just hanging on!)

  • Ollie is getting better at sleeping!  Last night he slept from 10.30pm until 5am this morning!

  • He is now using the bigger bottles!

  • Today I could have sworn I heard a giggle... very short... but a sound of delight nonetheless...

  • ...and he smiles loads!  They still aren't big grins... but they are definately smiles and not just the windy type.  As soon as I got him from his cot this morning and put him down in the bed beside me I got the biggest cheesiest grin from him that we have seen so far.

  • Ollie now follows us across the room (with his eyes hehe).  He definately recognises James and I and our voices.

  • He is 5 weeks today!

  • He makes little contented noises when he is happy... makes chomping noises when given his dummy... and slurpy content noises when drinking!  Sometimes he squeaks when he sleeps too.  It's adorable.
