Strong Arm, Wobbly Noggin

I didn't realize they start this head lifting business so early. Joash is already pretty good at heaving that third of his body weight into the air. It must be the constant breast milk drip he's hooked up to. Dan's is his favorite chest to practice on, likely because of its expanse.

Never Satisfied

Joash, for the first time since his first week, had solid naps all day long. It turns out that when we're not cuddled up all day having marathon feeds, I miss his sweaty little head. Now I've admitted it, he'll be up all night.

I only have three pictures since last time, so I will not even bother with a cut.

This one having nothing to do with baby but that it was given as a present upon visiting him. Korea excels at dessert decoration, which is strange given how foreign dessert is to them.

Joash is blessed with many Korean aunts. This one is Sally. She's probably his favorite. I love how she propped him up on a pillow. Way to make my kid even cuter.

Dan and I have started fighting over this coveted sleeping baby time. I guess it's only fair to give him some since I get it all day long. I can't believe I lived this long without it.

I couldn't decide which picture I liked best.

Really Ending in Tears This Time

Joah's tears came in (apparently babies are born with dry eyes), and he decided to exercise them in hungry frustration (and I later exercised some of my own in correlation).

And now I will take a break from posting so many videos of my awesome baby because I know everyone is getting jealous.

The More He Eats, the More I Video

I am starting to notice a direct correlation between the amount of time I spend feeding and the amount of time I spend filming the boy. On particularly growth spurty days, I guess I get bored and start trying to get him to perform his tricks, otherwise known as basic bodily functions.

First proof of a hungry day - truncated naps.

Second proof - waking up rooting.

And here I tried to coerce him into lifting his head, but he was not having it.

All right, back to feeding.

Joah Learns to Smile and Makes a Friend

But he doesn't learn to sleep apparently. He got his Hepatitis B vaccination yesterday, and he has had such a rough day today. He forgot how to eat, how to sleep in his bed, how to poop in his diaper and not on my lap. But I trust he'll relearn quickly. I just have to figure out a way to trick him down long enough for a shower.

But at least he learned how to smile.

In Between Sleeps

Sometimes Joash is awake. Usually he's not. Here are some pictures of both of those occasions.

Video Backlog

Since so much of my day is spent stationary, muscles atrophying into the bed, watching a teeny person eat and grow, I have been taking many short videos to entertain my solitary self. Because I don't want to overwhelm anyone but grandparents with baby videos (I myself have a strict policy of watching no more than 45 seconds at a time of anyone else's baby), I will upload them more promptly in the future, but, for now, I have a little collection. Feel free to watch only the videos that sound the cutest to you, but do be sure to watch the one in which my baby pulls his own hair. It is completely pitiful, and I hope I never forget how dear it was.
