The baby is now over 7 weeks old! We had him weighed today – 13.5 pounds. My mega-baby is getting big fast.
We’ve had a very busy two weeks. I took him with me to visit my grandmother. The time we spent together as four generations (grandma, my mom, me and baby) was precious. It was also nice to spend a few days in Wisconsin – such a lovely place: nice people, good food, real winter weather – what’s not to like? Baby did well with his first and second plane rides – we love Southwest!!
While he may not be sleeping through the night yet, he is starting to smile and interact more! Being his mom is certainly becoming more rewarding now that I have prince charming flashing me his gummy smile and starting to coo.

By the way: Calamity Jane is writing about cloth diapering over at http://apronstrings.wordpress.com. Check it out! I left a comment over there and will probably do a little post of my own in the future. It’s a big topic, worth looking into, but I think a lot of moms-to-be find the topic to be confusing, frusterating, intimidating etc, etc and it shouldn’t be. Cloth diapering is one of the best choices we’ve made and we’re very, very happy we use cloth rather than disposables. (For the record, we’ve noticed that our baby is happier in cloth too, his tushy turns bright red in disposables.)
