Little dude is already 2 weeks old and I can hardly believe it. Time continues to fly at warp speed and we are again astonished at how fleeting these first days will be. I feel like before I know it I’ll be throwing another 1 year old birthday party. We are enjoying being a family of 6 and soaking up all the little days and hours as best we can. Boden is super chill and relaxed and is still quite sleepy. Curious to see if he makes any changes this week since a lot of babies lose their cool after about 2 weeks. Haha!
Height/Weight: His weight is steady at 7 pounds 2 ounces which means we are likely having some feeding issues. He is on the boob pretty much all day and all night but isn’t putting on weight. This isn’t new for me since I’ve always had issues with my breast milk so I’m hoping we can get it figured out at the doctor this week. Until then some supplementing might be in order. His height is 19 3/4 inches.
Routine: Due to feeding being a 24 hour event we haven’t been able to get on too much of a routine. Gavin and the other kids are still staying steady on theirs but as for Boden we just play it by ear like most kids at this age.
Sleeping: Umm….we don’t really sleep. Again boob all. the. time. Someday sleep will re-enter my life.
Eating/Feeding: Well we can just refer to the last 3 things. Haha.
Sizes: NB clothes and NB diapers. He is swimming in everything else since he is so tiny.
Milestones: Well he is a little tiny for too many milestones but he is alert a lot more now and is better at eye contact.
Favorite Toys: Ceiling fans, anything black and white and of course mama’s face! 😉
Favorite Moment: Honestly, as hard as late night feedings and no sleep is – I really do enjoy our bonding time together. With 3 other kids it’s hard to just have that one on one time and when they’re little like this it goes by so fast I enjoy that time even more. So I’m trying to soak up all of these little moments since I’ll never have them again.
