Growing so fast
It's amazing how quickly babies grow and change. At 6 weeks Elijah is definitely more aware of his surroundings. He tracks Jason and I if we are moving around him. He loves his Whoozit toy that is black and white on one side. He will watch it go back and forth as I move it around his head. He is definitely getting stronger and is now aware that he has hands and they can grasp things - especially fun when it's a fistful of mommy's hair :-) Eli is sporting a very interesting hairdo right now. He had lost all the hair on the very top of his head (peach fuzz is starting to come back) but the hair around the crown and back of his head and a thin line around his forehead is growing in long. He looks a little like a monk :-) We've been able to get a few rare smiles out of him, but they make all the lack of sleep and stress completely worth it. He's recently starting making those delicious little baby cooing sounds too. He really is a miracle and we couldn't be happier!
