Today was another special day. We left the hospital and mommy and daddy took me to our home. It's a nice house; I know we will be happy here.
Mommy picked out a pretty teal blue color for the walls in my room and daddy painted it for me. I like it a lot – it is so cheerful. Mommy loves turtles and seahorses so my room is decorated like the ocean. It's exactly what I would have picked myself! The mobile over my crib even has turtles on it! It's amazing how long I can entertain myself just watching the turtles on my mobile go around.
I'm 6 weeks old now and getting cuter every day. And all those adorable newborn clothes that were way too big when I came home from the hospital? Those clothes are history now!
My neck is getting stronger every day and I really try hard to hold it up by myself but I'm not quite ready.
I'm going to start smiling any day now; already I tease mommy and daddy and act like I'm going to flash them a great big smile but I need a little more practice to perfect it before I'm ready to show them.
I was born very strong! I really surprised mommy and daddy and the nurses in the hospital when I showed them I could roll over by myself on the day I was born. Not just once, I showed them all several times that I had mastered this rolling-over thing . The way they all reacted, I guess most babies can't do that just hours after they are born.
I still don't get anything to eat or drink but breast milk but I'm not complaining. I know I'm very lucky. Mommy's breast milk is helping me grow strong and healthy. Mom must love me a lot to take such good care of me.
All I have to do is fuss just a little bit and daddy picks me up and carries me around until I'm quiet. The more I fuss the more he holds me and carries me. I've definitely got the hang of how to work this to my advantage.
The one thing I really hate is having my diaper changed. I don't like that at all! I protest as loudly as I can but they change them anyway!
