4 Weeks

Wow can't believe I haven't updated in so long. Guess you can tell I had a busy week. Good nights and bad nights as far getting Mister Keegan to sleep comfortably. I wish I could figure out the key to whatever gives him so much gas.
He made his public debut yesterday to much critical acclaim. My friend Erica got married in Boston. We brought Keegan down to stay in the hotel and be watched by my mom. My college friends were in from all over so we used one of their rooms. Using a combination of me nursing and stored milk I pumped all week, we managed to cover his feedings. The reception was right in the hotel so I could go up and down to check on him. It wasn't as hard as I was anticipating and we were so glad we could attend. Of course everything was beautiful and I had fun catching up with everyone. But we were so exhausted on the drive home because it was way past all of our bedtimes. I think "baby fever" has sufficiently rubbed off on my friends and I am expecting some pregnancies to be announced this year.
Keegan is amazingly four weeks old today. He has put on some fat around his face and legs. He still eats like nobody's business. I wonder when he'll stop needing to be fed every two hours. He can see faces and likes to just stare at you. He is also starting to pick up sounds like singing or baby talk or a rattle. But he isn't able to really respond yet.

Here he is today. Duck booties courtesy of Aunt Erika.
