So far, wee Henry sleeps a LOT. Normally, this is a trait to be envied in a baby, but the result around here is mostly frustration. He won't wake to eat like he should and so it can be difficult (read: frustrating, impossible, time-consuming) to get him to nurse. I've given him two bottles already because I couldn't get him to wake for a feeding and it had simply been too long to let it go any longer. He's still pre-term (35 weeks last Thursday) so I'm hoping that his drive to eat (and wake) will improve over the next couple of weeks. Right now he's like the sleepiest newborn you've ever known. . . on valium.

A Second Helping of Baby Cutie-Pie
I hope you'll forgive me the indulgent display of baby pictures. I've waited a long time to have adorable baby photos to share. The early photos of this child wouldn't have had the same effect as these do. Isn't he cute?
