6 Weeks Old

Wednesday, March 18, 2015

Dear Zach,

You are now six weeks old and I love you more every single day! This week has been the most exciting week so far for so many reasons! We've settled into a routine now (taps wood) and you are napping throughout the day meaning you don't become over tired and grumpy! At night you are sleeping so well - you are finally settling in your own bed and falling asleep quicker every night. We bought you a mobile this week with safari animals in bright colours which you love!


You are becoming so much more alert. You are looking at us properly now, and I think you definitely know that we are mummy and daddy! Your eyes follow us around now and you can focus on things (you're not so cross-eyed anymore!), especially your black and white zebra rattle. And you are totally obsessed with the red monkey on your vibrating chair! You stare at it, and sometimes talk to it in your little baby gurgles! It also made you smile for the very first time!!

You aren't to keen on smiling just yet, it's only on occasion! And more often to your red monkey than mummy and daddy but that's okay! Your first proper smile was so exciting, and luckily we caught it on camera!

You are still my tiny baby, despite how you are growing! This week we have moved to size two nappies and you weighed 9lbs 6oz at your final midwife appointment at 5 weeks and 1 day old! I think you've grown so big but some babies are born your size (the poor mothers!!) and you don't fit in your 0-3 month clothes yet!

We love you so much and we are so excited about all the new things your learning! We're also so happy that you're so good at night - please stay like this as we're enjoying the sleep!!

Lots of love, mummy and daddy xxx
