2 weeks!

3 Oct

The stats: Weight: 7 lbs 11 oz; length: 21 inches; head, 14.5 inches.

Nicknames: muffin, squeaking beauty, bunny

Temperament: Fussy (especially after his Hep B shot at the 2 wk appointment), observant, sleepy.

Things I Could Do Without: Round the clock feeding?

Item/Toy We Love The Most: The hospital swaddle blankets.  Best size for your skinny body, firm enough for a tight wrap.  3 of these babies plus a cute muslin blanket and you’re happy & cute!

Item/Toy You Love The Most: Umm, your fingers?  Whenever you’re free you love to knaw on them or stretch them out or do something, anything, with them 🙂

Things I’m Loving Most Right Now: Your big blue eyes. Falling into a routine. Knowing what to do with you–when you fuss you’re either hungry, need a diaper change, or just want to hang out.  It’s fun to hang out with you, my little boy 🙂

Things You’re Loving Most Right Now: Eating! Every couple hours, for anywhere from 20 min to an hour. . .you like to eat, eat, eat.  Your doctor said that’s good–you can always use more milk! She called you a ‘lean green fighting machine’ because you’re skinny, strong, and active 🙂

Week two has been frustrating and awesome.  You’re really here, you’re really ours! That means there’s a lot of responsibility–juggling your needs and mom’s work at the university and dad’s work at home.  You can’t yet communicate with us properly so there’s a lot of guesswork.  But we’ve learned a lot and we know how to make you happy–most of the time.  Muffin, it is so fun to watch you grow and learn 🙂
