Bo: Four Weeks Old

Bo, 2015

One of the drawbacks to the lively Christmas month that's just passed is that every day was so different; now that we are back to our usual schedule I am all but starting from scratch, figuring out what this guy wants and trying to remember what, exactly, newborns do.

Am I supposed to be enforcing naps or putting him down and teaching him to begin to self soothe or dimming the lights or switching them on or just carrying him all the time because that's what he seems to prefer?

I don't keep track of feeds, as I have long since realized that timing them at nighttime is especially kind of depressing ("How am I up, again?!?") But I have a vague notion that we're supposed to be making progress towards longer stretches of sleep and contentedness...someday.

Then I remember he's only four weeks old. He can (and will) do pretty much whatever he wants at this stage. It's been a bit of a red-faced, tight-fisted, grumpy week for Bo, but he's growing like a weed and will hopefully emerge from his newborn angst soon. Until then, we're winging it.

Here's a look back at Axel and Ozzy at the same age.
