Sawyer started really smiling around 8 weeks. I can't say a specific day because they came gradually but we love to talk to him and get him to smile! I need to keep my camera with me more so that I can catch it but I usually forget because I am having so much fun watching him smile and try to talk to me or his dad.
He probably weighs around 12.5 pounds now and I have no clue how long his is.. I'll just say again that he is very tall. He goes in next week for his 2 month appointment and as excited as we are to see how much he's grown, we are dreading all the shots!
He has found his hands and loves to try to get them to stay in his mouth. The other night I put him in bed with me (yea I know.. bad habits... so what I don't do it every night) and his binkie fell out of his mouth and I just laid there and watched while he tried to literally devour his hands. It was the most adorable thing I have ever seen. I wish I could have gotten it on video but I didn't want to get up cause I didn't want to miss it.
Most nights he goes to bed at around 10. Wakes up between 12 and 1 to eat then sleeps again until 3 or 4 when he wakes up to eat again. Unfortunately he only sleeps until 5 and then wants to play a little bit before he goes to sleep again. Then he'll sleep until 8:30 or nine and take another nap around 11. He eats every 2 to 2.5 hours and I think he gets a new roll somewhere every day! I have to say though that the night I had him in bed with me, he slept 5 hours straight. I kept waking up in a panic because he hadn't woken up to eat yet. It was kind of nice but I want him used to his crib. The past few nights he has been sleeping by himself in his own room. (Yes, I slept on the floor the first couple of nights... I am still a little bit paranoid!) It was so hard for me to leave him in there by himself but I know it needs to be done. I think I would love him to sleep through the night but I would really miss the middle of the night cuddles I get after he eats. I put his head on my shoulder to burp him and he likes to snuggle right up to my neck with his little nose. He makes the cutest little noises while he is nuzzling my neck. I will really miss that. It is the sweetest thing!
He is still on medication for mild reflux and another for his colic. He gets really gassy in the mornings because he doesn't burp well at night. So he usually wakes up in the morning grunting because he is trying to get out all of the toots. This boy can really fart!! He usually spends between 5 am and 7 am farting. He is definitely a gassy little thing!! Unfortunately, it is occasionally painful for him and he will wake up in pain. It breaks my heart. I hate to see him in pain and his cry is just so sad! I hope both of these issues clear up soon because I hate giving him medicine. I feel like I am torturing him.
Speaking of torture, he's had a little stuffy nose the past few days and I have been sucking big ugly boogers out of his nose. This really kills me. He cries and looks at me like he is asking me why I would do that to him. It is so sad! It seems to be clearing up though and there haven't been any fevers or coughing so the doctor says it isn't contagious... thank goodness!
