Fynnlan Seeley- 4 Weeks

4 weeks old

And just like that Fynnlan is 4 weeks old and just a few days away from being a month old! 
This week was a busy week with Big Sister's birthday and birthday party and a trip to the Crayola Factory! It was Fynnlan's first road trip, and he did so great!  Of course, at this age, newborns don't mind being stuck in carseats for long periods of time haha. 

Feeding

Nothing new here, Fynn still eats every 3 hours around the clock! 

Sleep

Oh goodness. The night sleep has been killer this week.  What I wouldn't give for him to only wake up to eat! Right now, he's up a lot during the night.  He usually wakes up and fusses a bit after his 11pm feeding, and may or may not put himself back to sleep then.  Then he wakes up around 1:30 and wants to be held until his 2/2:30 feeding.  Then same thing again around 4:30.  And then he wakes around 6:30 fussy and usually ends up in one of our arms until 8.  Sigh, we are some tired parents right now!! Praying this gets better soon!

Waketime

Fynn stays awake for about 45 minutes to an hour.  He's becoming more and more alert every day! We've gotten into a bit of a routine with his waketimes now.  In the morning, Fynn usually hangs out in his bouncer while I get ready for the morning and then Aly comes and plays with him a few minutes before her breakfast and his nap.  The next waketime is probably his favorite.  Aly plays with him the majority of this time.  She lays on the ground with him, does tummy time with him, gives hugs, kisses, and shares her toys with him.  Fynn is so attentive when she is around!  We also use this time to read stories to both kids.  Afternoons are Mami and Fynn time, we usually do bath time, or just enjoy lots of skin-to-skin time.
