Happy 2 Weeks!

Maddox, you are two weeks old (as of this past Wednesday)!  You have been such a blessing to me and your daddy, and we cannot imagine our lives without you.   I have never been so excited to lose sleep in my life!  You have already changed so much since you were born.

  • You weighed 7 lbs. 9.2 oz. when you were born and weighed 7 lbs. 4 oz. when we left the hospital; you were also 20 inches long.
  • At your one week check-up, you weighed 7 lbs. 10 oz.
  • At your two week check-up, you weighed 8 lbs. and was 20 1/4” long- you are such a growing boy!
  • When you were born, your eyes were dark blue and are now turning brown. 
  • You hated your bouncer at first, but now you LOVE it!  I can turn on the music anytime during the time and it calms you.  You are still too small for your swing though.
  • Our first week was rough because your daddy was taking the bar, and I had to take care of all the dirty diapers, feedings, etc. by myself.  Because I had a c-section, I could not cradle you to feed you or even burp you for very long because it hurt my stomach too much.  We practically lived upstairs that first week- climbing up and down the stairs was torture!  Your daddy and I alternate waking up and changing your diaper/feeding and that gives us each a few hours of sleep.  I am so thankful I have your daddy helping me…he is the best!
  • During the day you nap twice a day for 2-3 hours and at night you sleep 3-4 hours between feedings.  Lately, you have been getting your days and nights mixed up, but we are working on that!

Your daddy and I love you so much, and these past two weeks have been the best weeks of our lives!
