Wyatt's Hands

He loves his hands.
Particularly his right one. He puts it in his mouth ALL the time.
Sometimes he sucks on his knuckles, sometimes he chews on them!!!
He can't be teething already, huh???
Well, he can be... Ursula's first tooth popped up at 5 mths old... and sometimes a baby will teethe for a couple months prior....
AND, aside from that time I took pics of him sucking his thumb, I hadn't seen him do it again. Well, the other day, he once again found his thumb! I didn't discourage it because it was sooo cute! And apparently he's trying to self-soothe! My other kids didn't do that!

I really hate not having a working camera.

Eyewitness to Rolling Over

Yep, the night before last, we finally witnessed Wyatt rolling over!!! We had come home from visiting my sibs and getting my car; it was after 1am. We put him in bed and he was just all animated... happy and wiggling... and farting... LOL

Anyways... he started throwing his fists in the air and then putting them both to one side... finally, he rolled over, towards me. From his back to his belly... and then again from his belly to his back... he ended up right in front of me... like he put himself there intentionally because he wanted me to change his diaper! (he hates having a dirty diaper).

See, he's been rolling over, but we just never actually saw him doing it! It was sooo cute to watch him :D

8 Weeks old

Still no camera :( Sucks big time.

Wyatt's 24" long. Not sure of his weight. But, I do know he's getting heavier :D

He's smling a lot more :D And talking/cooing more too:D

He doesn't like have a dirty diaper, esp. a poopy one. The other day, I left him sleeping in bed while I got up for Calista (school) and I went to check on him and he was so upset; squirming and flailing his arms and legs around. I picked him up and he had poopy... coming out of his diaper, up his back. I brought him out to change his diaper and saw he had scratched his face with all that flailing!

Right now, his cheeks are rashy... I'm pretty sure it has to do with him having sensitive skin and us going down to visit my family last weekend. Ursula was like that. If whatever cloth rubbed her face, or even up against her face, and the cloth wasn't double rinsed in the washing machine, she'd get rashy, esp. on her face.

Sometimes at night, he'll wiggle around and I try to nurse him but that's not what he wants... he just wants to snuggle up next to the 'noonie' :D hehe Its funny :D

7 Weeks Old

Well, looks like my camera quit on me today :(

The batteries ran out, so I put them in the charger, took recharged ones out and my camera didn't work. I tried quite a few of the other batteries, even a couple of brand-new, regular batteries, straight out the package, to no avail :(

In other words, no 7 wk pics of Wyatt :((

So, on to his upate:

He barely has any snot now! woohoo!!! He's coughing, but barely at all too! Yay! Looks like it was that same thing the girls 'caught'... a virus/cold/whatever. I know that whatever it was, its helping build up him immune system :D

I don't know his weight, but his 0-3 mth clothes are just fitting... and some of the ones that snap at the crotch, don't snap anymore. Which means I'll have to bust open the huge trash bag of 3-6 mth clothes! hehehe His size one disposable diapers barely fit. If we buy more, it'll have to be a size 2. But, maybe by now, his cloth diapers fit him.

He still sleeps a good bit but does have more awake time :D He's smiles a good bit too :D Big smiles, even with his eyes :D I'll be holding him on my lap, look down, and he's looking up at me with this huge smile. Too sweet!

Ursula's still loving him... sometimes too much. She can't get enough of him.

The other day, she whispered in his ear, "You're my best friend and... you're my lady"... I laughed! hehehe Then I had tell her that he's not going to be a lady, but a man like daddy. So now, she tells him he's her boy... and whispers to him, "you're a man"... hehehe
