Apart from gaining weight, the growing Liam:
-is still looking quite yellow even though his bilirubin level has dropped and is no longer 'very high'. I get so offended when people say he looks yellow because he is half Asian. First off, his skin is yellow because he isn't pooping enough to get rid of his bilirubin (this is what the doctor said). Second, even though I am fully Asian, my skin is not as yellow as his. So I think it is ridiculous that people would think that the whites of his eyes has some yellow tint because he is half Asian. Also, I find it crazy that some people think only Asians get jaundice! Ignorant much?
-he's still unsure of his bath.
-he flings his arms like he's startled in his sleep when he's not swaddled.
-he's eating every one and a half hour to two hours. I am pretty sure he's going through a growth spurt cause he seems so hungry ALL the time!
-he sighs when he's being fed. Pretty sure those are happy sighs.
-he likes to be held and pat on his back.
-he's starting tummy time and he seems to like it. He's only fussed once when placed on his tummy.
-his neck is getting stronger and he always lifts himself up with his palms and neck to look around when we hold him on our chest.
-he likes to look towards bright light.
-he's very curious and when he's awake, he'd open his eyes wide and look around quietly. The nurse at the health center said she's amazed that he's so alert.
-he smiles in his sleep a lot. My mom said angels were playing with him in his sleep. How sweet!
