Six Weeks Old

We’ve had a lovely time the last few weeks; it’s hard to believe that 6 weeks have already passed since Isaac’s birth.  He was 10 lbs 15 oz and 23 inches long at his 1 month checkup.  He is able to hold up his head when he concentrates and has been finding his thumb more often.  He’s been to his first fraternity house (for an IRDF meeting), out for coffee, to the grocery store, and to a number of restaurants in Cambridge, Chelmsford, Nashua, Merrimack and Westford.  Just as I was getting used to longer stretches of sleep – he did a 4.5 hour and 3 hour stretch back to back one night – he went through a growth spurt at five weeks, shifting back to 2 hour feeds.  By the end of the week, he was back to a 3 – 4 hour cycle and is more awake and alert.

It’s clear that he can see farther away and we think he’s seeing more colors.  He loves faces too – now he will smile when you make faces at him.  He continues to be an easy and happy baby.

Isaac has gotten to meet lots of new people, including several good friends and family members from out of town.  Carolyn took the train up from Boston after her conference so she could have dinner with us and meet Isaac.  After a busy Stitch-n-Bitch, we wound down at Dan’s house where Isaac got to meet G who was visiting from Montreal.

Then Uncle Woody visited us from Fishers.  He was a huge help, from cooking and helping with laundry to tackling our handyman list (including helping to fix our gas fireplace and installing a ceiling fan!), to feeding Isaac and changing his diapers.  We look forward to seeing him again in just over a week!

Note from Brian: Su wrote this just before we left for Christmas and it’s been waiting for me to upload the photos. Oops! It’s been a busy few weeks but now that we’re home and settled back in it’s time to get back on the blog wagon.
