Whoa, where did the time go? Our little guy is still very much a newborn but he's getting bigger every day. Just two weeks ago he was struggling to gain weight at 2 oz below his birth weight of 6 lbs 7 oz and today he weighed in at 7 lbs 14 oz. We have to coax him to eat his 2 oz at a time but he does it. He has progressively more alert time but still sleeps pretty well at night, waking around 2:30, 5 and 8. Unfortunately with the pumping it takes at least an hour at a time. Simon can nurse when he's awake and alert but that's still pretty rare. I'm hopeful he'll catch on as we get closer to his due date.
Hannah is being a good big sister and loves to dole out kisses and supervise diaper changes. We are settling in to life as a family of four.
