5 wks

Wow...what a week! You had a lot of "firsts" this week..some sillier than others.
-We had our first trip in the car that was longer than 20 mins..and it was just the two of us. You did awesome! Slept the whole way there and back!
-Your first trip to Chick-Fil-A really wanted to play in the play area with your friends Dawson and Kayden but you didn't quite meet the height requirements ;)
-Then we went to Mommy's favorite place...TARGET!!! I was so excited to be there that we spent a good bit of time just checking everything out...I had to show you why it's my fav. You did really well...I'm sure it had nothing to do with Ashley holding you the whole time! HA
-Saturday we watched our Gamecocks beat just love watching football with Daddy. You stayed awake for pretty much the whole game! Halloween was also observed on Saturday so we dressed you up in your adorable costume (a.k.a. the best money mama's ever spent) and went to Aunt Kim and Uncle Brian's to show you off to Daddy's family then headed over to Duke and Gma's for supper and to pass out candy. You slept right through it all but everyone just loved your costume and said how cute you were. (Of course mama already knew that) Last stop for the night was to Aunt Suzie and Uncle Kirk's to meet your cousin Eden. She is 12 days older than you. You weren't very happen to have gotten woken up...
-You got to stay with Great Grandma for mama to take big sis Rox for her 2 year shots. I was so proud of myself..I didn't cry when I left, nor did I call 100 times to check on you. Granted I was only gone about an hour or so. Great Grandma just loved having you! She said yall just rocked the whole time :)
-You started sleeping much better this week. You have a bottle early evening and go to sleep for about 5-6 hours, eat, sleep 4 hours, eat, sleep about 3 hours and then you're ready for the day. You have been taking a good morning nap, a nap after lunch and another nap later in the afternoon.
-You just started taking 5oz bottles! All of those cute clothes are finally starting to fit! Your newborn stuff just isn't quite long enough anymore.
-You love to sleep on your stomach and after fighting it for the past 5 weeks we have finally given in to you. We hooked up the movement monitor in your crib and you have been taking your naps in there. For whatever reason you won't sleep in there at night but you'll sleep in it during the day?!?! You are sleeping in the bassinet during the day. I've been swaddling you in your "sack" and it seems to be doing the trick for now.
-You're still loving your bouncey seat and you just talk and look around checking everything out.
We're going to take it all in these last two days before the weekend b/c we (yep you and mama) start back work on Monday! Hopefully you'll continue to be the good little boy that you have been and you won't get fired the first week. Mama would hate to have to leave you everyday.
