We are happy when we are nursing. We are happy for maybe 30 minutes after feeding, then it’s all about vamping until the next feed. We do not like the swing, the bouncy seat, the boppy, or the bed (well, maybe we like it, for five minutes). We like to be on mom and dad, bouncing, patting, shushing, singing, walking…these are the choices.
We LOVE staring at the headboard, and eating our hands (that includes Ian’s, mom’s and dad’s hands). We also prefer sitting up and holding our head up for as long as possible.
We do sleep very well at night, thanks to the double swaddle, and sometimes we even start in the co-sleeper. We always wind up next to mama in bed, though. I think we are starting to take in this whole big world and just need that familiar smell, sound, and touch of mom and dad.
We are five and a half weeks. How long does clingy last? Not that mama’s complaining…much.
