Baby Jeremiah update

The new baby is about 5 1/2 weeks old now.
He is developing more "personality" by the day.
He is trying to smile.
He is cooing a little.
And, he can occasionally put himself to sleep (miracle of miracles!).
He is still suffering from "colic" after 3 pm. I feel bad for him, he seems to be in great pain.

We introduced a "plug" today (AKA pacifier). He is only our second baby to even try a plug. Rebecca, our other grumpy baby, tried it but did not like it. Oddly enough, for all of her fussiness, Rebecca never took a plug or sucked her fingers. All our other babies have sucked their two middle fingers. Jeremiah has been gnawing on his knuckles lately, so I decided to buy a plug to test it out.

Here is a pic of our little baby in "tummy time" this afternoon.

He is just darling Bethany. I love when they are laying on their bellies and their little cheeks are all squashed up like that. Oh who am I kidding? I love those cheeks any way I see them!

KA an MamaHen,
His little cheeks are ALWAYS chubby... whether sitting or lying down. And I kiss them all the time!
