Two Weeks!

Hello friends!

Our little guy is already two weeks old.

Two weeks

I cannot believe it. Liam had his two week check up, well I guess it was just a follow up appointment to check and make sure his weight was back up to his birth weight.    He weighed 6 lbs 15 oz at birth, and when we went in for his first appointment his weight was down to 6 lbs 2 oz, one day after we were discharged from the hospital.  The doctor was concerned because he had dropped 12% of his birth weight (they usually are only comfortable with a 10% loss).

20130213_082818So as I mentioned before we had to supplement some formula until my milk came in, which was literally the night of our first appointment.  We went back in for a second appointment and he we up to 6 lbs 8 oz, in just three short days!

20130213_100717He has been eating a LOT, and it can be frustrating at times because I get exhausted.  The last two days were rough, he was definitely going through a growth spurt, because at our appointment today he weighed 7 lbs 14 oz!!!!  I cannot believe he has gained that much weight in 9 days!  I guess we are doing something right!

He has been cluster feeding every other day, you can read more about it here.  Cluster feeding is basically a time period where your baby is more fussy than others and wants to feed constantly.  It can be very frustrating and exhausting but trust me it is worth it when you see your baby growing at a healthy rate.

We also introduced the pacifier this week.  I wanted to wait until he was a month old, but sometimes he isn’t hungry and he just wants to suck on something so we thought the paci would work.  He doesn’t really like it but it might be growing on him.  Unfortunately for all us Hokie fans, this is the only paci he likes at this moment

We also took another ride in the bob this week.  Yesterday it was nice and warm here and my sister and her friend came over so we took Ella and Liam out for a walk.

20130212_153612He seemed pretty happy about the whole thing 🙂 haha. I am really hoping the weather started getting warmer soon, so we can go out for more walks :).

That’s all for today 🙂

I hope everyone has a great day!
