Two Weeks Old

Noah is two weeks old already!  What a crazy two weeks it has been.  We have been very lucky to have lots of visitors who want to see Noah.  There are so many people who love him already.  Jeff and I have gotten decent sleep considering.  He's a pretty good sleeper and at night he might sleep a couple of four hour stretches.  I never realized how well I could function with so little sleep; especially since before him I slept 10-11 hours a night. 
During the day we've gotten really good at getting things done early around the house.  Cooking, cleaning, laundry, yard work. Then, when the evening comes we can still spend some quality time together...usually watching the least until Noah gets up again.
(Then we just cuddle with him. =)

  • How old is Noah?: 2 Weeks
  • Noah is how big?: 8lbs 5oz
  • Total weight gain since birth: 1lb
  • Sleep: 3-4 hours during the night... sleeps most of the day with lots of feeding every couple of hours.  The last couple of days though he's really been wanting to cuddle instead of sleep making him really tired after a couple of hours and making it even harder for him to sleep.
  • Milestones: He's really starting to hold his head up when he lays on our chest.  He looks around a lot and can follow our hand when we move them around his face.  
  • Baby "Win" of the Week:  Noah wakes up bright and early just to pee all over himself/Dad/changing pad/dresser and doesn't even clean it up himself.  Noah 1 - M&D 0 

  • What Mom misses: Still have not had my first drink and really would like to but I figured I should wait until pumping starts and feedings get further apart. Also, long stretches of sleep!
  • Weigh Progress: Down to 134, only 4lbs from starting weight! (...and sadly already under wedding weight. lol) Almost fit into most pre-pregnancy clothing, now I just need to tone up!  Can't wait till I can start Jillian Michaels again!
  • Best Moment of the Week:  Figuring out you can make a wii me for a baby! We will now track all his growth from birth!  How fun! Also, Mom wore a two piece for the first time this summer already and it wasn't even that bad! I even got a tan!
  • What I’m excited about/looking forward to: A little more activity from Noah and a little more sleep for Mom and Dad.

...and finally I leave you with cute little baby feet. =)  Lots of love from Noah!
