Liam is a wonderful baby. We've only had a few days and nights where I cried when he cried but mostly, he's quiet and peaceful. I can't believe I'm so lucky (knock on wood).
At 8 weeks old Liam is smiling and laughing. He likes to look at himself in the mirror. He likes to stand holding on to your fingers. He will grab at your earrings, necklace, and/or hair.
He doesn't like to be held at your chest or cradled because he can't see what's going on in the world- he's curious and likes to look around.
At 8 weeks old I can count on him sleeping through the night. He started this around 6 weeks old but that was hit or miss. I can now be sure (again knock on wood) that when I put him down after his night time feeding ( whether it be 8, 9, or 10 o' clock pm) he won't be waking up until 4:30- 5:30 am. I easily get 7- 8 hours of sleep. After he wakes in the morning, he eats and goes back to bed until 7 or 8.
I can't believe how fast the time is going by. I have to go back to work in 4 weeks. I've cried. I don't want to go back. We have a wonderful lady to watch him when I do return to work but I'll miss so much. I don't want to go; but sometimes we have to do things we don't want to do.
