Micah is now doing pretty well at holding his head up on his own and he seems to smile sometimes when we talk to him. At this point, though, it's still hard to tell if he's just doing something in his pants or smiling because we're talking to him. :)
I am getting a little couped up since most days are raining and cold now and Micah sometimes seems to need to be fed every hour or so... But there are days when I get out to go for a walk with him in the stroller, or we get to the store, or out to his doctor appointments. Most of the day I'm reading a good book or watching TV. Micah likes to be held a lot. Even if he's sleeping in my arms after a feeding and I try to put him down in his crib or bouncy seat, he seems to cry. I'm learning what his cries mean. I've been learning the secret language of babies... something I learned from Oprah, who's quickly becoming my best friend during these monotonous days of breastfeeding and changing poopies.
A few days ago Oprah had a lady on her show who has studied the language babies use. It was incredible! There are 5 distinct cries a baby will make when they are trying to communicate with us. These cries are only made by babies who are 0-3 months old. Take a look!

- Neh="I'm hungry"
- Owh="I'm sleepy"
- Heh="I'm experiencing discomfort"
- Eair="I have lower gas"
- Eh="I need to burp"
Anyway, we're doing really well so I thought I should finally add some meat to this blog for all you friends who check it out! Thanks for reading and posting a comment.
