Six Weeks Old

JJ has passed the 6-week mark and we think he weighs about 11.5 pounds.  He is certainly rounding out!  He has shown us that he can drink from a bottle, and we learned that 1 oz of milk is not nearly enough to fill up this hungry boy.

For the past couple weeks, JJ has been noticing his hands more and sometimes tries to shove them into his mouth.  He has also been smiling more, which Mommy and Daddy really love :)

Baby's First St. Patrick's Day

JJ celebrated St. Patty's Day by wearing the green McCutie onesie he got from his buddy Tyler in Albuquerque.  Daddy celebrated the holiday with a green beer!  Mommy lamented the absence of the Shamrock Shake in Texas but enjoyed some Irish whiskey cake instead :)

Duke's Sixth Man

JJ had himself a nice little Sunday.  From his perch on Grandpa's lap, JJ was instrumental in locking in the Blue Devils' win at the ACC tournament.  It was a beautiful day (topping 80 degrees!) to enjoy the game at the open-air sports bar.  Now we need to get this kid some Duke attire for the big dance!

After all the excitement, Daddy and JJ kicked back on the couch for a bit this afternoon.  I'm surprised either of them could sleep -- they're pretty excited for two special visitors who will be arriving in a few days!

One month old!

JJ celebrates his one-month birthday today, four weeks old! He's gotten into a good routine of going to bed around midnight and getting up just twice a night for feeding and diapers. I did a little at-home weigh-in today and he looks to have hit 10 lbs exactly! Over the past week, he seems to be making better eye contact with both of us and is getting very good at lifting his head up when he's lying on his belly.

Here are a couple videos from the last two weeks. The first one just shows him sitting around hiccuping, which seems to make him pretty happy. The second is a snippet from his first bath. He didn't like the first bath very much but seems to enjoy a good swim every 3 days.
