Two Weeks Old
Will is now a little over 2 weeks old! We had his two week check up and the doctor said he's doing perfect! He weighed 7 pounds 12 ounces at birth and was 20 inches long at birth. Now he is 8 pounds 3 ounces and 22 inches long. I am go glad he is doing well! The only concern was his small amount of wheezing - probably due to the cats. I would hate if we had to get rid of the cats but I would do anything for my son.
Will is so amazing! He is so much like me that is scary! He's very particular about things - he will only nurse if he had a dry diaper and has been burped. He will only take the soothie pacifiers that they gave us in the hospital. Luckily they sell them at walmart and target since they get lost easily. Will also sleeps like me - he prefers his stomach (which we only put him on if he's laying on our chests) and has his mouth wide open.
Breast feeding is going amazing! At first it was a challenge and I was sure I would give up. I'm glad I kept with it because its like second nature now. He and I definitly prefer the skin to skin part of it!
The lack of sleep is starting to catch up with me but it's still all worth it! I try and sleep when he does but sometimes thats hard. My main goal lately has been to try and keep him awake as much as I can during the day.
I will now add some of my favorite pictures taken at the Indianapolis Museum of Art when we went with my Aunt Jean, Uncle Jules, Jen, and Sam on August 16.
