6 weeks old :)

Where did the last 6 weeks go! Allister is 6 weeks old today. He's
such a good baby, i seriously can't believe how good he is (touches wood).
He sleeps all night just waking to feed and most of the day still. He
is alert a couple of times a day, only about an hour each time.

Daddy managed to get him to laugh a couple of times last week, he
likes to dance apparently. He only smiles for me in his sleep.

He rarely cries (touches wood again!) and will put himself to sleep at
night after his feed. We have had zero accounts of rocking and pacing
and walking to calm a cranky baby, yes zero. And we thought Harrison
was good! Everyone said you only get one good baby, I guess we lucked out :0)

He still has all his dark hair, and is almost out of 0-3 month
clothes, separates still fit but anything with feet or poppers is just about done.

Harrison is starting to realize Allister is for keeps. He is a little
more jealous, trying to force hugs on me when I nurse. He's also been
a little more demanding and has had a few tantrums, but I guess that's
to be expected at this age anyhow. He will now kiss and hug his baby
brother, and for the most part is an absolute angel. He's learning to
wait and except boundaries too, like not running off at the park.

I'm finding being a mum of 2 relatively easy so far. I have learned to
re-prioritize things. Laundry and cleaning can wait, my boys care more
about having some fun than a clean house. Not that the house doesn't
get clean, it's just not as clean as before!

Here's Allister on his 6 week birthday.
