Okay, I just thought I'd put this out there for any first-time moms (or other moms) who have babies more like mine, because I can totally imagine if ds were my first, I would probably be starting to freak out at all those wonderful baby accomplishments.
Simon is 10 weeks. He sleeps a lot. He's still remarkably slug-like. (A large slug, granted. Last Monday he was 18 lbs, 10 oz.) He has started making repeated jabbing motions with his hands, which sometimes (quite possibly accidentally) hit toys dangling over his head. He likes to look at lights. He smiles very occasionally. (The smiles are slowly increasing, but there's no way, for instance, that I could expect to elicit one for a picture.) He doesn't really coo much yet. He's not doing much moving around on his own, other than inching over in my direction all night long. His main interests in life are nursing, sleeping, and staring at intersections of light and dark as though he's having a religious vision.
And, he's most likely a totally healthy and fine baby. He's just taking his time. Not exactly a type-A personality so far, our Simon. I can see him slowly waking up and becoming more aware of us and the world around him, but he's not really accumulating many easy-to-list accomplishments just yet. (He is, of course, the most wonderful baby in the world, but that's just my feeling on the subject.
) And, if you're reading this and you have a slug (albeit an incredibly cute one), too, hopefully you'll feel in good company.
(And please, if you're one of the PPers or another mom who would like to add her baby's more impressive accomplishments to the thread, I really don't mean to sound like you shouldn't be doing that! Definitely continue to celebrate your kids!
Like I said, I just know it can be hard to read this kind of thread and not find any baby who sounds like your own, less advanced little one.)
