Your First Week

September 27, 2009

Dear Teo,
You are already over a week old!  You have spent most of your time sleeping and nursing, but you also have had moments of quiet alertness when you look around at your world with a focused, thoughtful expression.  Sometimes you raise your eyebrows, and you get little crinkles on your forehead that make you look like a surprised old man.  You have smiled a few times, mostly in your sleep.  Today you smiled when I massaged your feet.

One thing you seem to really be working on right now is getting your thumb in your mouth.  You have done it a couple of times, and since then I have seen you trying to coordinate opening your mouth at the same time you move your hand toward your face.  Once, you grabbed one hand with the other and pulled it toward your mouth.   You practice this with patient concentration.

Here are some photos of your first week.
