Nathan is one month old today!


Today Nathan is one month old! He weights 10 pounds and is such a good and sweet baby. He still sleeps most of the time. But when he is awake, he's holding his head up and trying to look around at everything. Emma loves him and enjoys holding him, and hugging and kissing him.

Nathan is three weeks old!

Today Nathan is 3 weeks old! He is still sleeping most of the time. He is having more periods of awake time though. He's holding his head up very well too. His only issue seems to be painful gas, it really hurts his little tummy.

Nathan is two weeks old!

Today Nathan is two weeks old! We took him to the doctor for his two week checkup. He's already gained a pound over his birth weight, so he's 7 pounds 14 ounces! He's 21 inches long, so that puts him in the 25th percentile for weight and 75th percentile for height.

I suppose being the second child that everything he does will be compared to Emma, but I guess that is just the way it is. He's eating and sleeping very well already, much better than Emma did. He also rarely fusses or cries. The thing that bothers him the most is gas pains. But even then he doesn't cry or scream the way Emma did, he just moans and cries a little bit. He also rarly spits up when compared to Emma. She would spit up after every feeding, but Nathan will only spit up about once a day, if that. He still sleeps most of the time. He will have a couple of periods of awake time a day, usually 10-20 minutes. Overnight he can sleep for up to 3 hrs but mostly he wakes up every 2 hrs.

His eyes are still very dark blue, and his hair seems to be getting even lighter. He loves to be held up over your shoulder, that is his favorite place. He will sit in the swing and sleep, unless he's having gas pains, then he wants to be held and patted on his back.

The newborn stage can be hard with very little sleep but I love how small and cuddly he is. I know he's growing fast so I'm trying to enjoy every day.

I've also been working on the whole story of his birth, it's almost done! I should have it posted sometime this week.
