Here's a pic of our little rugrat with his eyes open. he's finally starting to be awake for longer than a few minutes at a time! I think that he's going to be brown eyed like his big brother- but we'll have to wait and see. I think he's starting to look a little more like his cousin hank.
This baby thing is soooooooooooo much easier the second time around! We've lucked out with a good baby- but I think I'm a lot less anxious than with Zeb. I also feel a lot better this time around too. I weigh significantly less and I've already started back into my workout routine- so I'm a lot happier and healthier.
The one stress with this little guy has been his weight gain. With him not pooing (he went another three day stretch this weekend but pooed once yesterday AND today) and me nursing I was so stressed out that he wasn't eating enough. I convinced Kent to come with me yesterday to the post office to weigh our little guy :) You can go after hours when nobody is around and use the package scale! I forgot my camera or I would have had a great picture to post. The kid is still a little pigmy- but he's gaining weight steadily. Friday at his doctor's appt he was 6'13" but last night he was 7'1". Hip hip hooray- I'm not starving him. He still hasn't reached birth weight- but he's almost there (and starting to poo more regularly).
