3 week old baby boy

We have just barely gotten through the three week mark and already we feel like our little guy is changing so fast. He was 7 lbs 1 oz at birth and now he is 9 lbs 6 ozs, so you can see that his favorite thing to do is eat (he gets that from me, unfortunately!). As paranoid first parents, we have been in to see the pediatrician three times already. First, we went in to have his belly button looked at because it hadn't fallen off yet and was bleeding a little bit. Second, we took him in for his routine 2 week appt. The third appointment was to check his left eye because it was getting "goopey" all the time. The ped said that it looks like he may have a blocked tear duct, but that it is pretty common and will most likely clear up on its own. Other than that, things have been going pretty smooth, we love being parents.

Sweet baby boy!

Well the little guy is 10 days old and what a joy he is in our lives!! We can't get over the fact that we could spend all day long just staring at him. The first few days home from the hospital we hardly slept at all. Every time he would make a little noise we would check to see that he was ok, every time he wouldn't make noise for a few mins we would check to see if he was ok. Now, we have started to get more sleep and we have started to decipher which noises mean he needs us and which ones are just nothing. He has been such a good baby so far and doesn't cry much unless he is hungry or having his clothes or diaper changed. He is a good little eater and is already starting to fill out a little more. Well,I gotta run...apparently it is my turn to change his diaper!!
