One Month

Ethan turned one month old yesterday...I can't believe it! I took him to the doctor's office to get weighed and couldn't believe what I saw...12 lbs 4 ozs! That's over two pounds in two weeks! I guess I don't need to worry if he is getting enough milk anymore:) Abbie went with me, and did an awesome job. I was worried about taking them both out on my own. I have always had someone with me when going somewhere up until this point. Anyway, she did great and made the ladies at the front desk laugh too. She told them all about how baby brother lost his cord, pees on mommy, and cries a lot! "Wow, you are just full of information aren't you?" the lady said to Abbie.

Things seem to get a little easier each day, and we are getting in more of a routine. Although, Ethan's sleeping and eating isn't becoming routine. But we are working on that. One day at a time, right?

Abbie's Alphabet

Time Flies!!

I can't believe that it has been almost one month since Ethan was born. I feel awful that I haven't taken more pictures of the little man, but I can't find the time to do basic things around the house, let alone take pictures! He is so handsome and is growing so fast. At his two week appointment, he was supposed to be back up to his birth weight of 8lbs 14 ozs. He weighed in at 10 pounds!!! The doctor said she hadn't seen that good of a weight gain before...she said it was great though. He had also grown an inch.
Things are very different the second time around. Easier in a sense, I guess because I have done it before. But also harder, because now I have a 2 1/2 year old to chase around! Abbie has been doing well though. She loves her brother so much. We have had some jealousy issues...we have also been having "terrible two" issues in general. Everyday is an adventure, that's for sure! But it's the best adventure I have ever had!

The end of a smile...tried to catch it:)
