Every Three Hours

Oh, my goodness, it's been a week! Where did the time go?

Silly me. The time went to this little one and his various and sundry sisters!

It goes so fast, the time!

Baby H will be two months old in a few days. I think he's close to 10 pounds now. Newborn clothes still fit, but not for long.

His preferred feeding schedule is every.three.hours. Always. 24/7.

He sleeps a lot. Never much past that magic three-hour-mark, but is passed out a good bit between most feedings. I'm watching to see if the high sleep need is really who he is or if we're still dealing with a preemie whose adjusted age is only just over three weeks old. All of mine slept a lot up to the three-week point. It was what they did after that that indicated more of their true sleep needs and habits.

Oh, but he smiles! We had to wait longer than usual for it (it's that adjusted age thing), but once a day or so, he'll grace us with a beautiful, responsive, wide-mouthed smile.

More as soon as I can...just wanted to check in!

Have a beautiful weekend.


  1. Beth, he's so beautiful! Every three hours - wow, he is determined to get BIG (how nice to not be nursing! you have a chance to get some sleep sometimes!). I'm praying for you.

  2. Squeal! He couldn't be more perfect. Love the photos... those expressions. Love his little outfit, too. Yes, twill be interesting to see how/if his sleep patterns change. Praying for you tonight...

    I'm definitely seeing some resemblance to EG.

  3. I seriously need to visit your blog more often. It makes me smile.
