2 weeks

Here is what is going on with Elisha this week according to;

Your womb was a warm and cozy environment, and it takes time for your baby to adjust to the various sights, sounds, and sensations of life outside your body. You may not be able to detect much of a personality just yet as your baby spends his time moving in and out of several different states of sleepiness, quiet alertness, and active alertness.

The only way your baby knows to communicate is by crying, but you can communicate with him through your voice and your touch. (He can now recognize your voice and pick it out among others.)

Your baby probably loves to be held, caressed, kissed, stroked, massaged, and carried. He may even make an "ah" sound when he hears your voice or sees your face, and he'll be eager to find you in a crowd.

Elisha is doing great.  He is still sleeping most of the time, with one or two periods of 1-2 hours that he'll stay awake during the day.  He's already naturally settling into a schedule and I am only getting up 1-2 times a night with him.  He's continuing to look and act healthy and I can see his cheeks beginning to fill out indicating that he is getting plenty of nourishment from nursing.  He frequently clasps or rubs his hands together which I think is a developmental skill for a little later down the road, so I would say his motor skills are great based on his age.

This week he's already had his few few trips to playgrounds, parks, and the bayou, but he pretty much slept through all of these visits. 

All of us, including Noah, are thoroughly enjoying this sweet little boy!
