Today marks two weeks since Colin first arrived. (Happy Birthday little guy!)
And, what everyone says is so true – time really flies by. I think it does even more so when you count your day not by the actual time on the clock, but by two hour feedings and naps and diaper changes. Everything has been going really great, and we are adjusting to the sleep schedule well. Brandon went back to work this week, so to help him function properly at work, I've been doing the night routine on my own (not that he could help with the feeding anyway) ;) and so far I've been okay. I'm amused by the crappy programming that is on TV in the middle of the night. TV is what keeps me awake during middle of the night feedings…the first week I tried doing them in bed and was constantly nodding off and having a sore neck the next day. LOL. So now it's Trauma: Life in the ER or E! News Daily occupying my time.
Colin has his two week Dr. visit tomorrow and we're anxious to see what he weighs now…I've been noticing my arm is getting heavier already! His little legs are filling out now and I couldn't be more pleased as a Mama. :) The first week I was so anxious and stressed about getting the breastfeeding right, and I have been anxious to see him regain his lost weight. It's been fun watching the little changes and growing he has done in such a short amount of time. His hair is already lightening up a bit and we watch his eyes daily for color changes (we're pulling for Blue!) He has such a strong head and neck already — turning it from side to side while we try to burp him. We started daily tummy time this week and he amazed me today when he up and rolled over all on his own! We are enjoying all of these little moments. :)
With the new life adjustment and parents visiting, I've been neglecting the blog and sharing pictures, so finally here are a few favorites from his first two weeks. Thanks again to all of our friends and family and blog friends that have sent such nice notes and wishes to us!
Oh, and the other part everyone says is so true too: the feeling of being a Mom and loving something as much as this is the best thing in the entire world.
