6 weeks

Baby Mason,

Tomorrow, you will be 6 weeks old. Your dad and I comment all the time that it feels like you were always here. We love you more than we will ever be able to describe. Right now, you are asleep in your swing. This, along with your car seat and mine and daddy's chests, are the only places you will sleep for longer than an hour! Your dad and I don't really mind having you on our chests though; you are warm and cuddly and you love to be next to us. You eat every 3-4 hours and you can tell you are eating a lot! You were just under 6 pounds when you were born and I am betting you are over 8 pounds now. You make the cutest noises when you eat so I can tell you are our child because you love to eat! Now that I think about it, you make noise pretty much all the time (just like me!). I can hear you right now! When you are fussy and want your pacifier or if you are ready to eat, you make this noise ("ah ah") and that let's us know! Your cry sounds like you are saying, "ok, ok, ok." Dad and I try not to laugh.
Anyway, you LOVE bath time already. Every time the water goes on you, your arms go to the the side and you try to suck your hands and drink the water. Needless to say, I love your bath time too. 
You really like music. When you are fussy in the car, 99% of the time turning up the music will calm you down. Grammy has a music aquarium thing in your crib at her house and when you were fussy the other day, she turned it on and you were like in a trance (you even got mad at me when I tried to put clothes on you)! I listened to a lot of music when you were in my belly so I am not surprised. 
Almost every morning I sing a good morning song to you and after you are all dressed, I put you in the Boppy and you watch and listen you your mobile. I really think you like it because you talk to the sailboats! During your wake time, I love to sing to you and make funny faces with you. I know it's only a matter of time before you make them back to me. 
Mason, you HATE gas! You get horrible gas and mommy has tried so many things to make it better and there is no hope except time. When you have it, it wakes you up and you get angry (and if you were awake, you get super upset). You also have reflux and have to take medicine (although the reflux seems to not phase you). 
You just started wearing some of your 0-3 month clothes and although they are a tad big, you would look cute in anything!

Well, I love you sweet Mason and will write again soon.
