The last 2 weeks have gone by so fast and yet I find myself wondering what we ever did without sweet Brooks! He has fit into our family so perfectly and we are so thankful for him.
He really has been a wonderful baby. The first night home from the hospital was a little rough. He woke up about every 2 hours to eat, although I am thankful that he always goes right back to sleep after he’s done eating.
His umbilical cord stump fell off at two weeks and 2 days old.
He seems to have a very similar temperament to what Hayden did at this point.
He does seem to have a sensitive tummy and is pretty gassy, especially in the mornings. We’ve been using gripe water and gas drops, but those don’t always seem to help much. Hoping this is something he’ll grow out of.
The first week he woke up 2-3 times to eat, but the second week has been much better. He usually goes down around 10 pm and wakes up between 3-5 am to eat and then again around 7 am and goes back to sleep until about 9 am. We even had one night that he slept from 10 pm- 6am! I can’t complain about that 🙂
He is still rocking the newborn diapers and newborn clothes which seem to be still pretty big on him, which I find odd considering he weighs a whopping 9 lbs and 10 oz as of his 2 week well check!
My precious boys!
