Elden is 7 weeks old today. Lately he's earned himself the nicknames Stinky and Boog (short for 'booger'), and we also call him 'Buddy' a lot. At an unplanned doctor's appointment on Wednesday (we thought he had an infection; he didn't) he weighed 12 lbs 9 oz. He's still a fan of baths and smiling. He only takes about 1.5-2 oz of breastmilk at daycare but when Jon has him he'll suck a bottle with 4 oz dry. He still nurses 4-5 times per day/night when I'm there and definitely prefers this method of eating. Sometimes if my milk lets down too fast or he is a little too eager to eat he'll spit up everything he just consumed. He's still colicky and has spells of 2-6 hours where he will just cry and can typically only be comforted by the Moby wrap. He's also growing hair on the front top of his head now. We can't believe this boy is growing so fast!
