Josiah is one-week old today!
I’m pretty sure I believe the people who say that the first week is the hardest, but I don’t want to jinx anything, so…
Actually, Julianna and I watched the DVD of “The Happiest Baby On the Block“ today. Parents rave about it and the book has been recommended to us many times. Thankfully, our next door neighbor had the DVD, so we didn’t have to trudge through yet another baby book.
Anyway, as you can see from the picture, the concepts in the book/DVD may not apply for us. Julianna and I were laughing the entire way through the DVD (although, we felt very sorry for the parents who were in the video). If our baby were any calmer, I’d call the doctor and ask what was wrong!
At one week, Josiah is sleeping through the night — last night, we woke him two times for feeding and he went right back to sleep afterwards. (I’m hoping the same for tonight). Josiah seems to only want to cry when he’s hungry. At all other times, he makes pretty cute little cooing sounds, if he makes any sound at all.
One week and we are an even happier family.
