William is holding his head up now all the time. He loves to look around and stare at everything. He's doing his best to take it all in! Most of all, he loves to look at the sunlight coming through the windows.
He is doing SO good, yall! Like a typical baby, his "routine" is eat, sleep, poop. And on the subject of poop (danger ahead), William can pass some gas!!! When he farts, it's major. Andrew and I just laugh and laugh when he lets it rip. I wish I could record it and play it for everyone. He has no problem getting out that gas, which I am happy about since a lot of babies are gassy and have trouble expelling it.
Something else I've noticed about William: he sure does LOVE his daddy. He and Andrew have an incredible bond. William loves being held and talked to by his daddy. There's something about the way Andrew handles him, it's like some kind of special man connection that I just can't explain.
Pretty much I've just been hanging out at home with William and playing house! No really, this is an adjustment period for us. It's tough work taking care of a newborn. I've been trying to rest when he rests and let go of the idea of having a clean house. My floors are driving me crazy because I haven't mopped them since before I went into labor! But oh well, gonna let that go until I can find some spare time to clean. Nursing has been going well so far, it pretty much rules our lives at this point. The munchkin is nursing every 2.5 - 3 hours during the day and every 3 - 4 hours at night. It's so worth it though, because I know he's getting the best nutrition.
And now for more pictures:
Please note that I am not breastfeeding here, only trying to put the little guy to sleep : )
And last, I wanted share a recipe for something I have simmering on the stove right now. I really don't know what's it's called, but it makes your house smell really good and fallish.

2-3 c. water
6-8 cinnamon sticks
1 handful of cloves
