3 weeks old already!

Hello! Thanksgiving was great... everyone was all googly over Travis. (of course!) :) We had a second Turkey Day here with the Hoffmeisters on Sat. I cooked everything: turkey, stuffing, garlic mashed potatoes, yams with marshmallows, and green bean casserole. Yummy!

It was so nice hanging out here, just the 2 families... :) Julia made Travis a Taggie-type blanket. It's very cute! It's a flannel material with monkeys all over it. He LOVES it! While I breastfeed him, he rubs the satin ribbon tags along the edges.

The potato peels caused the garbage disposal to get all clogged up... :( Actually, the plumber came today and said it was most likely the years of accumulated gunk in the drain... and my peels were just the straw that broke the camel's back. So we don't have to pay for it. Yippee!

Travis is doing great! He's holding his head up more now, and focusing on things. Like the mirror/mobile above his Papasan Swing. He stares at it in amazement. It's SO cute! I pumped some breastmilk for the first time yesterday (only about 1 1/2 oz). Jeff fed him a bottle for the first time last night. It was the sweetest thing ever! Of course, I took a picture.

We bought Travis a My FirstPooh bear. It's so cute! It's actually Baby Pooh with a huge head, and a blanket. So cute! I had to cut his nails again... they grow SO fast! He's got some baby acne all over now. :( I took some advice, and yesterday started washing with Dove Sensitive (wipes) and applied a thin layer of breastmilk on the blemished, and also lanolin wipes. They are much better on his cheeks today.

Poor baby has diaper rash on his butt.
:( It happened when he was 1 week old, too. It's really red in a spot this time, though. I started using the Lanolin wipes again for changes and A&D ointment, and trying to change him more often. He gets so upset, though! He hates being changed!

Gotta go... the Moose is up from his nap and demanding his Milkies!
