Luke has already been with us two weeks! Goodness, the days are literally flying by. I’m trying to enjoy every moment because I know I’ll never have this season again…this sweet newborn phase with just one baby…my first. It’s a special time, and I don’t want to wish it away by looking forward to the next phase. When the next baby comes along, I’m sure I’ll have a wild little toddler running about :).
So, what’s baby boy been up to these last two weeks? Lots of eating, that’s for sure. And lots of peeing and pooping. We should just call him the little excreter! I’ve been pooped on (we’re talking all over pajamas, the bed, etc), Adam’s been spit up on, Luke’s crib, bassinet, changer and our bed have all been peed on. Let me tell you, you’ve got to be strategic when changing the diaper to make sure it all stays in. The laundry has tripled since this little guy arrived. But he is eating well and gaining weight, and we are thankful!
L has also been much more alert during his second week. He’s staying awake for a decent amount of time after most feeds. He’s enjoyed some quality time with J-J.
Luke’s been getting used to real baths in his little baby bathtub since his umbilical cord has fallen off. He has been such a champ! Doesn’t cry at all. In fact, he almost slept through the bath pictured below. (Don’t worry, the diaper came off for his most recent bath. We’re taking small steps. I didn’t want to get sprayed.)
He’s been spending some time sitting up in his boppy pillow after feedings.
And finally, this week Luke gets to welcome two new cousins into the world! Baby Samuel (Adam’s brother’s 3rd baby) was born this morning, and he is precious! It will be so fun having boy cousins so close in age. And we are anxiously anticipating the birth of Baby Betsy (my cousin’s 1st baby) sometime tomorrow! So exciting.
So thankful for 2 precious weeks with our boy.
