One Week Old

With his Bear from Auntie Alyssa

Enjoying his swing

I can't believe a week has passed already! We've had a very busy week and have had something to do every day, which has worn us out! Thankfully he loves his carseat and riding in the car and Brad has been off to drive us around. Monday we took Will back to the hospital for a newborn outpatient visit and we had to take him for another followup yesterday. He was 6lb 6oz on Monday and had gained back up to 6lb 10oz Wednesday! They were very happy with that because they only expect a gain of 1/2 to 1oz per day for nursing babies and he had gained 2oz each day! Today we had professional pictures taken of them and I can't wait to see them! He was so good considering how long we were there and he was awake for many of them. He is already looking fuller in his cheeks to me and I'm sure now that we both have the hang of nursing that he will continue to plump up each day. I wish time would slow down a little though. I'm already sad that now its just 11 weeks until I go back to work :(

Little Will is PRECIOUS!! It's amazing at how fast they grow. Enjoy your time with him.

Oh I'm so glad you're getting 12 weeks off! I don't know how some mom's go back after only 6. You're so blessed to have some extra time with him. Where will he stay? My little man goes to daycare. It's a love/hate thing for me. Mostly love though:)

Thanks Tori!

Becky - my FIL just retired and is planning to keep him. I'm actually probably not going back to my current job. I'm not feeling it and haven't been for awhile but I wanted to wait until after I had him to make a decision. I'll have to do something, just maybe not full time. Either way its going to be hard! I'm hoping for a part time position if we can still makes ends meet. But you're right - I can't imagine going back after 6 weeks. That would break my heart!
