6 weeker

Elijah is already 6 weeks. Supposedly there is a growth spurt that occurs right around now which can make for hungry, fussy babies. I am thinking we have it going on.... Our nights are long; up every hour and a half to feed and our evenings are spent finding ways to soothe a fussy baby. Bath time always calms him down for a while, as does bouncing with him on our big exercise ball. Hopefully things will calm back down after this growth spurt. He was sleeping for 4 or 5 hours straight at night for a little while, mama would welcome that again.

My goodness, he's such a handsome boy! He looks so much like you with those eyes! Sorry about the lack of sleep - this, too, shall pass, but probably not soon enough. lol
It sounds like you guys are on top of all the right things to soothe him. Give your sweet parents a break, will you, Elijah? :-)
("You betcha," he says..."when I'm 25!!!!") ;-)

Elijah really looks like his mama - and I mean that as a compliment! He's a beautiful baby!
