6 weeks

My littlest guy is almost 6 weeks old already! He is a big boy. At his 2 week appointment he had already surpassed Jamus' 2 week size by 8 ounces (and remember, Finley was 2 weeks early and weighed 9 ounces less than Jamus at birth). We're excited to see what he weighs at his 2 month appointment at the beginning of August. He is already wearing 3-6 month size clothes.

Things are going really well. There are definitely crazy moments when the boys both need something from me at the same time, but those only happen a couple of times a day. Besides, they are learning an important life skill (patience). Just like Jamus was, Finley is very adamant about his nighttime feedings. He never goes any longer than 4 hours between feedings and sometimes only goes 2 1/2. Somehow I feel mostly fine during the day though (might be the coffee).

Jamus is learning new things every day. For a long time he improvised sounds instead of words: clicking his tongue means music, clearing his throat means he's thirsty, general grunting and pointing means he wants something across the room. But now he is starting to try more and more words. Whenever he does something he knows he isn't supposed to he says "No no no no no" under his breath. I try not to laugh.

Here are some recent photos of Finley.
