Speaking of the sling, Colin just loves his sling -- and so does his mama. At five weeks, this mama's boy still needs to be held almost all the time, and I'm happy to oblige, although sometimes I need both hands to get stuff done. That's when our sling comes in handy. With Colin in his sling, I can do the laundry, wash dishes, and fix a meal (although not over a hot stove -- safety first!). I can even sit at the computer and catch up on e-mail and blogging -- at least until he reaches 22 pounds or my back gives out, which ever comes first.
And get a load of that cute smile! Colin started smiling this week for real (and not just those gassy newborn smiles); however, this particular smile is a gassy one. So far, his "real" smiles have proved elusive to my camera.
