Three Weeks...

Weight: 8lbs 7oz

Height: 20 inches

First: Sawyer has officially outgrown his first outfit... well out stretched it. Since being home from the hospital his favourite position has been with his little legs tucked up beside his belly. Lately he's been experimenting with stretching out his legs and thus eliminating one of his newborn sized outfits.

Likes: This week Sawyer decided that he actually likes taking a bath. This makes it a much more pleasant bonding time for Trev and his little man.

Favourite moments: Sawyer attended his first party this week. Auntie Sandra and Uncle Kevin hosted an Olympic party. Sawyer loved all of the attention and cuddles. He slept through the entire party being passed from person to person. Needless to say, he stayed up most of the rest of the night.

Trying to learn: Sawyer is trying to learn how to sleep in his crib. Correction... we are trying to teach Sawyer how to sleep in his crib. I sometimes think that the learning curve for us, the new parents, is greater than that of our little new born who is discovering the world for the first time. We'll get this parenting thing figured out yet.

He prefers: His soother to his fist... yes, he does use a soother. After three weeks of no sleep, we popped in his soother, he instantly calmed down and we all had a bit of rest. We were hesitant about it at first but it sure is making a difference in his sleeping.

Amazing: When Sawyer is truly asleep nothing can wake him. Tonight as he was once again cuddling with a visitor, the fire alarm went off; he didn't even flinch. Too bad we couldn't transfer this sleeping power to the middle of the night!
