Movin' on Up

We had to go back to the pediatrician on Monday to re-do his bloodwork (everything came back normal) and took the opportunity to weigh him again. As you might can tell from his pictures, he is growing fast! On Monday at 3 weeks, he weighed 9 lbs and 12 oz and is 22.5 inches long! That's up from 8 lbs. 3 oz. and 20.5 in. at our 1 1/2 week appointment. So, he has moved into the 70 percentile for weight and length. He's getting to be a big boy!

Sleepy Boy!

Me (2 1/2 weeks) sleeping through my play date
with cousin Saige (7 1/2 weeks)

This is how I like to sleep- with my hands above my head
just like Daddy!

At Home

Two Weeks Old

I'm two weeks old now. We went to the doctor this week and she said I'm doing great! I weigh 8 pounds and 3 oz. which puts me in the 40 percentile for weight and in the 50 percentile for length. The doctor said we are doing great nursing even though mommy still gets frustrated with it at times.

Week One

Welcome Baby Steven!

He is finally here! Steven Mark was born on September 2, 2006 at 9:10 pm. He weighs 8 pounds and is 20 1/2 inches long. We ended up getting an appointment to induce him at 7 on Saturday morning and I was in labor for about 14 hours before he arrived. The first 10 hours went very slowly (I was dilated 5 cm at 5pm) but then once he decided to come; he came fast! It only took 5 pushes! The doctors and nurses were great and made our first days together much smoother.

We came home Monday afternoon and are adjusting well. Everyday gets a little easier. Steven is beautiful and such a joy. He is sleeping and eating well which makes things for Mommy and Daddy much easier. Thanks for your patience with this posting; we have had our hands full...literally, but are loving this wonderful little addition to our family.
