5 weeks - yesterday

I didn't have time to post these pictures yesterday. I think Bryce likes the camera! He has started looking right at Jason when he takes pictures. As you can see in this picture, Bryce has started losing his hair. He still has a line of very thin hair right around his forehead. Last week his head was peeling pretty bad. With each piece of skin that came off, a chunk of hair came out with it. We are having a hard time keeping his nails short. He is constantly scratching his face to pieces. It doesn't help that his face has broken out in a rash or baby acne. Oh the things you learn about babies! Last week I really thought we were making strides with good sleeping patterns, but the past two night have not proven to be as successful. I had gotten to the point where I was getting up 1-2 times to feed Bryce at night. We are back to 2-3 times a night and him ready to be awake for the day before 6am! Jason assures me once he gains enough weight he will sleep better. I would think he is gaining pretty quickly since he wants to eat every 2 1/2 to 3 hours. Hope you enjoyed the detailed update on our precious boy!

i really did enjoy the detailed update! thank you! he really is good looking, though! and have you tried socks on his hands, so he can't scratch? they have to be pretty fitting so they don't slide off. i freaked out, too, when i kept seeing all the lost hair on the changing table, it's not as bad though with a boy with a well-shaped head!
