4 weeks old

Is that possible??  The last 4 weeks of my pregnancy draaaagged by and the first 4 weeks of Aren's "out of the womb" life has just zoomed by.  Goodness gracious.

He's such a sweetheart, we've decided we'll keep him (ha ha).   We can usually count on at least 5-6 hours of sleep during the night (typically 10pm-4am or so).  Such a change from Alex's pattern of waking to nurse every hour and a half.  He's gaining weight, though I don't know how much he weighs right now.  I just know he's filling out and the newborn sleeper I put him in earlier (for the above photo) is starting to get snug (could be the bulk of the cloth diaper helping to make it snug, too). 

This was more like 3 weeks old, but it was his first "tummy time" so I wanted to share :)
Snoozing on our bed.
Getting some cuddle time w/ the big brothers.

All three together - actually on his 4 week mark.

We've discovered he likes the Mai Tai wrap better than the Ring Sling.  I feel more comfortable using the MT at this age - wearing him tummy to tummy makes it easier to check and make sure he's still breathing!

With my hand on his back, just to get a good "size" picture - and look, he's still able to wear his newborn prorap diaper cover!

Look at that darn baby acne on his handsome face :(   Go away, baby acne!!
And I had to throw in a shot of the big brothers that I took today!

He is precious and Alex cracks me up every time you put a picture up here of him!

So cute! Glad he is a good sleeper. Ajay looks like he is getting tall and Alex is your little karate master.
