7.5 weeks

Well, Asher now weighs 12lbs 5oz. He's wearing 3 month size clothes already. Haha. He is doing great and finally eating every 3 hours instead of every 2. Still battling an acid reflux issue and not sleeping at night too well. But he is a happy baby. Really starting to smile alot more. He finally got to meet his Uncle Justin and his great grandmother Martha. He was good for them and of course they loved him!! My mom has been here for 10 days. I'm sad she's leaving tomorrow :( but she'll be back soon. She has been helping me a lot. She has come over and watched Asher so I can take a nap almost every day. We're really starting to get on a better bedtime routine. I'd read lots of books. So hopefully something will work soon. I'd be okay with just getting 3-4 hours of sleeping straight soon! Asher isn't a good napper. I think that's part of the problem for nighttime sleep. But he's a smart boy. I know he'll learn soon!!
Today my dad is racing in Indy. So Asher is excited about watching his grandpa Tex on TV!!!
I'll update again soon....

4-5 weeks

We are all doing great. Asher is still eating like a champ. We're trying to restrict his feedings a little because of a spit up problem. He eats too much, too fast. He keeps getting bigger! haha. I don't know how much we weighs now. We go back to the doctor for his 2 month appointment in a few weeks. He is starting to smile at us. Especially in the mornings. He has slept for 3 1/2 hours straight some nights but still pretty much sticks to a 2 hour schedule. Hopefully this will get better. He has enough meat on his bones to go longer. But he thinks hes starving after two hours. It's a work in progress ;) Tuesday will be 6 weeks!!! I go to my doctor to hopefully get cleared to start working out again.
Asher didn't like his car seat very much at first. But we took a long road trip yesterday and today and he has gotten much better. He doesn't like being confined to a space AT ALL. He is very active. Which I knew when I was pregnant with him. He is very squirmy and doesn't really like being messed with. He is so funny. Very quirky baby. If he is upset and we can't seem to calm him down, we turn on the bathroom fan or the sink and he stops crying immediately. The consistent sound soothes him. I guess it reminds him of the womb.
Lily and Kaylie really love him now. Lily likes to lay wherever hes laying. They are pretty sweet!
Ill update soon ;)
