week 22

This week you cried A LOT little man.  You had your DK and I up five or six times a night every night- we are so exhausted everything hurts :-(  Last night I caved in and let you sleep in our bed - not very restful for DK and MK but you certainly slept better and that made for a much happier HK today.  You made the most of your good mood to enjoy a visit from your Great Grandma Val (above) and a good play in the bath (below).  

This week you also shocked your DK and I by feeding yourself your own bottle!  You have only had maybe 10 bottle feeds in your whole life and none in the last month or more.  But when you saw that bottle - whhhaa - you knew exactly what it was and you wanted it NOW.  You then proceeded to happily feed yourself - no parental assistance required thank you very much!

That reminded DK and I not to worry about the crying and the sleepless nights as you are growing and learning so fast that before we know it you'll be leaving home to go to uni and we'll be missing all your noise and the eventful evenings.
