An update on little Lincoln.
Today we had his 2 week checkup- and he’s doing some awesome newborn things. This baby can EAT! Isabelle had a terrible tongue tie and it really interfered with nursing…we should have had it clipped but we didn’t really know. Anyway, Lincoln knows what he is doing. I had no idea that feeding a baby could be like this.. and probably because his tummy is full, he sleeps. We have a sleeper! (Well so far. knockonwoodknockonwood.) He eats about every 3 hours during the day, and goes about 5-6 hours at night before we have to wake him to feed him. This is a totally different experience then we had with Isabelle. She was tricky to feed and tricky to get to sleep, bless her tiny little soul. Who knew babies could be so different? (Also, when will I stop comparing them?)
As of today he weighs 8 pounds 1 ounce, an entire pound gain in 13 days. Well done, baby.
|Can you tell he is thrilled to be naked.|
It is taking us awhile to get used to changing a boy…boys are different. It’s kind of like sneaking across a neighbors lawn and not knowing when the sprinklers are going to go off. Have to be quick! There was seriously one morning we had to change all his clothes like four times before we figured out to point all objects down. That helps.
