Our New Normal

It is so hard to believe that 3 and a half weeks have passed since we became a family of 4. Yes, Strongbow does count too! Here are a few pictures of our first few days at home.

 Headed home! Boyd made it very clear that he was not at all interested in dressing up in something fancy for the car ride home. He is a simple man who chooses comfort over style.

 Welcome to your new home kid...

 Strongbow's reaction to his little brother was priceless. He didn't notice him for about a solid hour and when he finally did, all he did was stare at him! Now he loves to give his brother kisses and sit with us when I feed him. I am probably a bit too lax on the licks to the face but I figure it is just building up his immune system.

The first bath went pretty well. I forced Tyler to watch some YouTube videos with me so we would know what to do! 

He has already grown so much and it is hard to believe that he will never be that small again! At our 2 week appointment we beat our birth weight by 10 oz. so I can't even guess how much he weighs now. All I know is that he can't fit into some of his newborn clothes anymore.

He is still eating and sleeping pretty well. His night time feedings are at 10:00 pm then again anytime between 2:00 and 4:00 am and he usually wakes up around 6:00 or 6:30 am. These last 2 days have been a little tricky because he refuses to go back to sleep after his 6:00 am feeding so he gets pretty fussy and I don't get my extra hour or two of sleep. I pray it's just a phase! My mom had to remind me that every day is different and now I totally believe her.

Keep us in your prayers, I fear that there is time for me to become an emotional train wreck but I'm hoping things continue to go as smoothly as they have been so far.
