The last couple days, Spencer has really been into “cluster feeding”. He will nurse almost continuously for hours at a time. He frequently falls asleep after 10 or 15 minutes of nursing, but if Clare tries to get up, then he wakes up and wants more. Hopefully he won’t keep this up for too much longer.
Spencer is really developing quickly. He started holding his head up at day 2, and now he is really into stretching his legs. He has a habit of kicking off his blanket. Then he gets upset because his legs are cold. It seems like he might start crawling next week. When I set him on my chest, he will kind of crawl up me. It is pretty amazing.
I wanted to mention development, but I have to include a couple cute pictures too. My Aunt Betty loaned us the family cradle, which my parents used with me, and my Aunt Betty used with her kids (who live near Denver). Clare and I both really enjoy passing down things from prior generations.
