2 Weeks

Our little Parker turned 2 weeks today. Not only that, but today was my 'due' date with him. I am soooo glad that I didn't have to be pregnant the past two weeks.

He is a wonderful baby! He gets up two times at night to eat, 1:00 & 5:00 (ish). He really only cries when he is hungry or changing him (before being fed, if he has a full belly he's fine!)
He nurses well and fast! We are pretty much done within 15 minutes, Taylor was the same way!
He actually amazes me because if he needs to burp while nursing, he will unlatch, burp himself (!) then continue eating!

Yesterday at his Dr's appt. he weighed 7 lbs 8 oz so he is growing, but he still only fits in newborn jammies and only a handful of clothes!

Taylor loves him...sometimes a little too much. She gets upset when others hold him and threw a fit yesterday at the Doctor's when the nurse took him to weigh him!

I am still adjusting to life with two kids, I think it would be easier if Taylor didn't decide to be extra terrible since the day he was born and to not sleep! That is what is killing me more than anything...she NEEDS her sleep just as much as I do! :)

Two weeks down, many many more to come!

Love the pictures!! He is really cute! It took me a while to get use to two kids. Now that they are older they play so well together and it's so fun!

hang in there, you sound great and he sounds like a sweat heart! 15 min. to feed him wow, it took me like an hour everytime I guess thats why Cooper was such a chubo. He is adorable and sounds like such a good baby!

Super cute new header, even more, super cute kids! That is so cool that Parker is such a good baby, I'm hoping for a nice, easy one too for #2.
