8 weeks old

Will is now 8 weeks old.  In some ways it feels like he was born yesterday, and in others, it seems like he’s always been a part of team Walton.  We think that Will has officially turned a sleep corner.  He now sleeps from 5-6.5 hours in a row during his first night time stretch.  The problem with this is that he goes down at 7pm.  Since we don’t go down until about 10, we only get a 2-3 hour stretch.  One of these days we are going to actually go to sleep when he does and try to take advantage of this time.  After that, he sleeps for about 2 hours and then only for about 45 min to an hour. Bermp.  We are pleased with the progress though.  We are also super psyched because for the first time in 7 weeks, he officially has no diaper rash!!!   After trying 4 different kinds of cream and 3 different perscriptions, it is gone!  I really think that it was related to my infection.  I’ve read that my infection can manifest itself in him in different ways, one of which being diaper rash.  After 2 rounds (4 weeks) of antibiotics, my infection is finally gone . . . coinciding with the disappearance of his diaper rash . . . coincidence?  Regardless, we are just glad it is gone!  Here is his 8 week picture.  He was SUPER tired, if you look closely, you can see how red his little eyes are.  It was straight to bed after this picture!
