Second Week

Little One went to his dr appointment for his 2 week check up. He's a whoppin 9 lbs. 7 oz. and 22 inches. He's growing fast, and has the chin to prove it :)
Highlights from his 2nd week:
*He lost his cord! 
*He's starting to smile. I thought I was just an excited Momma, but one morning, my mom said "Ok, that was a smile." and then I knew. Out of the 3 kids, he's smiled the soonest. I hope this means he will be a pleasant and happy kid.
*He also will coo once or twice a day, right after he smiles at you.
*With his smiles, he makes great eye contact. 
*He also has really good neck control and likes to show us how strong he is. We aren't the best at doing tummy time, but try to get it in a few times a week.

one of the few cross-eyed pictures I have. And he doesn't even do this now that he's older.
This picture below is really bad quality because it's from my phone (which is really old, not a smart phone, and sat in the sink for a few hours soaking with the dishes). But it's the only picture I took while my mom was here. She was amazing help with all the kids, and me, and the house, and I miss her. She is talking with Little One in this picture and he smiled at her right after I snapped this picture. It's sad to me this time around, that my baby won't be living close to his grandparents. They grow so fast and I know grandparents LOVE being with them. Both my older kids love their grandparents and enjoy having that relationship.


  1. Wow! What a little cutie. I'm so sad that I don't live closer. I NEED to meet that little man so badly!!!

  2. I just had so much fun reading all about your new little one. What a sweet boy. I am so excited to meet him and to see all of you in just a few weeks!!!
