I can hardly believe that my sweet little Nate is already 3 weeks old!! He is a great little boy. He is doing really well. We've had him in to see the doctor and after going down to 9 lbs 5 oz, he is back up to 10 lbs 4oz (he's probably more than that by now) He has been a pretty easy baby thus far. At night he goes to bed at around midnight and doesn't wake up till around 6 or 7 which is heaven for me! Through the day he is up every couple hours to feed with some awake time scattered throughout the day. He is mighty big eater so just before bedtime and after a good nursing time he gets a couple ounces of formula to keep him happy (and okay, me happy too.)
Sean and Emma-Lyn have been doing fantastic with Nate. They don't always know how gentle to be with him but they both love rubbing him and giving him lots of kisses. Emma-Lyn especially loves to blow him kisses on her way to bed at night.
Emma-Lyn discovered the wonder of Vaseline last weekend. She decided that the couch, some of the floor, the foot rests, her hair all needed a significant coating of the stuff!! YIPES! Needless to say Marko and I were not all that impressed and weren't exactly sure how we were going to get the stuff out of our furniture. It took us nearly 10 washings just to get the stuff out of Emma-Lyn's hair! Gotta keep an eye on this girl at all times!
The past weekend Sean went to two of his best friend's birthday and today we had his birthday party for his little friends!! So much cake to be had. He had a great time at all the parties and was super excited about having his own party. I'm thinking I might just leave the decorations up till next weekend when my folks come over for Sean's family party and it will actually be the day of his birthday then too.
Tonight we're hoping to head to the Santa Claus parade. Should be fun! Hopefully the rain will hold off till afterwards.
Here are a few snapshots of some of those events:
