Changes a-foot

Something happened this week. Beyond Alden’s umbilical chord stump falling off, he is exhibiting signs of growth! Not really physical growth, maybe not even mental, but… attitude growth. It’s like noticing when he changed from being a blobby little confused clueless potato-monkey, to being a less blobby slightly less confused potato-monkey that was learning how to feed and express his discontent (about a week old).

At the beginning of this week Alden started being more vocal. He wasn’t really ‘fussy’ he would randomly cry for about 8 seconds and then stop. He decided sleeping in his bassinet did not suit him and has moved into our bed with us as well. He was also being more alert during the day. By the end of the week was really getting the eating thing down, and was moving his arms and legs a lot more. It’s a bunch of little things, but he definitely learned some stuff these past couple days. He still gets the hiccups really badly a couple times a day though. I guess there's not learning not to get the hiccups.
