6 weeks

Jackson turned 6 weeks old Wednesday. Daphne, you're right, he's grown a lot since you saw him and that was just a week ago, lol. He's got to be at least 10 pounds. My back and arms are definitely getting a workout!!! Last night we laid him down in his crib to go to sleep, and of course, he woke up and started to squirm, BUT 10 min later, he'd worked himself to sleep :-D Very exciting news for us! This is the first time he's done that and not started screaming bloody murder. He also did it today when I laid him down for a nap. Hopefully this trend will continue...Yesterday we had to take Jackson to get an ultrasound of his hips. This is something they do since breech babies sometimes have hip problems. When the docs checked him at the hospital and at the docs office, they weren't concerned. Of course, y'all know me, and I still was. The tech said everything looked fine, but we'd hear from the office soon. We go back next week for the 6-8 weeks checkup, so I'm sure they'll let us know then. More on that later. Here's a couple of pics from this week :-)

Bath time - Jackson now loves bath time. He hated it for about the first 2 weeks of life, but once we were able to put him in a bath tub, he's been great. In fact, it will stop the screams of colic when you pour warm water on the little man :-) Now he's outgrown his first bathtub.

Tummy time. Jackson's doing very well on his stomach. He makes crawling movements and can work himself up on this little pillow.

The big boy holding his head up and checking out the scene.
