3 weeks



Today marks the three week birthday of my lil man.  I cant even believe it has been three weeks!! I feel like he already looks bigger and older than when we first brought him home.

day 1








3 weeks







Things have been going really well, aside from breastfeeding which has been a bit of a challenge...I will reserve that drama for another post...

Aside from the boob drama things have been awesome.  Being a mom is truly an amazing experience and I really cant believe I love this baby so much and that I made him!! He is such a sweet boy he smiles all the time even though its just reflexive at this point I love to see him smile and its often at times when Im so frustrated and really need to see a good grin.  He loves to cuddle and he honestly is rarely not in someones arms.

I am starting to use my cloth diapers up to this point his legs were too skinny for most of them so we were using disposables, which I hated throwing money away on...but he's fattened up enough that my diapers fit and I love them!!!

He eats every 1.5-2 hours during the day except the past few days he has been cluster feeding in which he wants my boob in his mouth at all times he literally will eat for about 5-10 minutes fall asleep and then about 10 minutes later want to eat again this cycle goes on for several hours every evening.  At night the longest he will ever go is 3 hours and thats a good night usually its every 2 hours almost on the dot some times he'll wake up an hour after I put him down to eat, its tiring but thats what comes with the territory these early weeks I suppose, and I love him to death so whatever makes him happy at this point, as long as he is growing, peeing and pooping as he should then we have no problems.

He has started being more awake after feedings and he will actually focus on certain hanging toys and our faces more, its really fun and I cant wait for him to become more social.

He still fits in newborn clothes, he loves going on walks and his wubanub pacifiers, overall he is such a joy and I cant remember what life was like without him!!

loving his walks


3 weeks to the day...he wouldn't let me take his Paci...so it remained

He is so handsome. What a cutie!! You look great too!! Glad things are going well :) I've been waiting for an update from you haha. I read through blogs at early morning feedings.

I'm Katie a 27 year old mommy and wife. Welcome to my blog where I will chronicle the happenings of my life as I find the balance between being both SAHM by day and CVICU nurse by night.

I love Jesus and strive to be more like Christ every day. Running, reading, and cooking are some of my favorite past-times. I love photography but I am no pro, but it helps I have such a cute subject to practice on!!
