6 Weeks

       This week we celebrated Nolan's 6 week birthday and it's already been a week full of exciting milestones (well, exciting for new parents).  On the night of his birthday, the little champ slept through the night for the first time. That means this mama had uninterrupted sleep from 10:15pm to 5:00am. Praise. The. Lord. Just as I had guessed,  it was more of a fluke than anything, as the feat has yet to be repeated. But it's progress people. PROGRESS. He's also made the connection between hand and mouth and is so close to figuring out how to suck on his thumb. We're also getting lots of eye contact and smiles out of him now.
       Week 5 was a bumpy one for us; Jon described it as humbling. While we had family in town and got to do so many fun things together, colic also reared its ugly head and our peaceful little baby showed us that he's got lungs. And the strength to cry for hours. I think we're past the worst of it (knock on wood), but he's still challenging us each evening. I'm keeping my fingers crossed thats its just a phase... we"ll see
Here's some shots from our 6 week photo shoot.

Thanks so much to Aunt Sue, who handmade this awesome little hat of his.
