An Update on Our Peanut

Our little peanut had his 2 week check-up a few days ago and we have gained almost a whole pound since our birthday. We are now 6 lbs 12 oz and like my dad would say, "we are eating like a viking." Every day it seems he is changing, especially those amazing cheeks of his, that I could just eat! He has begun to make more noises and cooing and grunting, especially when he has gas!! It is totally hilarious. We have also discovered that his favorite part of the day is his bath. It's as if the world has stopped... he couldn't be more content. He loves to cuddle and loves to be naked. He sleeps like a champ and only wakes up to eat or for a dirty diaper, which is only once and sometimes twice a night... we are way too lucky. Patrick and I are falling more in love with him every day.

The pictures above make me happy... his BIG little feet are always scrunched up however close to his body he can get them and I LOVE when he lays on my chest and just looks around. So sweet. Below is a short clip of our first bath in the tub. I am the happiest mommy in the world.
