5 Weeks

Anders turned 5 weeks old yesterday!

We've reached many milestones this month, like getting into a good 3 hour routine. He eats for about 45 minutes, "plays" for about 45 minutes and then sleeps for an hour and a half. This is usually from about 5 am until about 9pm. Then he goes to sleep. We feed him from a bottle (without waking him up) at about 11pm and he sleeps until about 3 am. Then we start it all over again!

We have had many outings this month--to dad's school, mom's school, Target, Babies R Us, and a few other stops along the way.

Anders enjoys walks in the afternoon--he sleeps well in his stroller while I walk around and play with Haiku in the park.

I have learned to manage on the day that dad is gone from 630am until 930pm. Joel has class one night a week, so he is gone ALL day. It seemed like a daunting task at first, but we've learned to manage.

He's also learned to sleep better--it was a struggle getting him to fall asleep at the begining. Now he is falling asleep much faster & on his own.

Here are some pictures from yesterday...unfortunatly, the lighting isn't very good. But, he sure is cute in this cowboy outfit from cousin Chris & his horse (which Haiku would like to have for her own)...
