Six weeks – an update

So Teddy will be six weeks old tomorrow. He is hitting another growth spurt, and his head is noticeably larger today; he is also longer. He is gaining weight like a champ (at last Wednesday's midwife appointment, he was 10 lbs, 14 oz) and has generally been pretty sunny.

He is much more aware of his surroundings and he is starting to smile. It's hilarious to watch him follow an object in front of his face, to look at Moe (our black and white cat) or to fixate on the light fixture. He is big fan of lying on his back, looking in your eyes and cooing. His eyes are still a deep grey and he still has tonnes of dark hair.

It has been a lot of work so far, but other than all the pumping it has been pretty much what we'd expected. Thank you, years of reading Mom blogs!

He is a sweetheart and we are head over heels in love.
