Baby Update
Name: Jonah
Age: 9.5 weeks
Weight: 12 lbs 8 oz
Height: 23.59 in
Diaper size: 2
Clothing size: 3-6 mon
Breastfeeding or bottle feeding ? bottle
How well is baby sleeping ? pretty well. He's in his own crib now, and goes down very easily for naps and bedtime, but still wakes up a lot for feeds.
Recent milestones: Only woke for 2 feeds last night! :woohoo:

ETA: After reading everyone else's posts, I realize I misinterpreted "milestones." The feeding thing was a personal milestone. So developmentally, he's begun to bat deliberately at specific things dangling from his play mat, and today (10.5 weeks), we gave him his stuffed raccoon to cuddle, and he pulled it up to his mouth to suck on its nose. But tummy-time-wise, he sucks. This kid is going to spend his life in a permanent face plant, it seems...

Baby Update
Name: Phineas "Finn"
Age:2 1/2 months

Height: About 22 or 23 inches
Diaper size:when we use disposables at night he is still fitting into size 1

How well is baby sleeping ? 3-5 hour stretches...he went 9 hours straight a couple of nights ago but it hasn't happened again yet Sad
Recent milestones: He has been smiling and cooing for several weeks now which makes his crying episodes more bearable. He seems to be getting more comfortable with not being held all the time - can put him down on his play mat for about 10-15 minutes before he starts crying though he still doesn't like his bouncy chair or swing.
