A Square Piece first today!
Because I have a little monkey named Bennett who’s clinging to my left shoulder right now, I’m attempting to type this post with one hand (while Giada De Laurentiis is making delicious donuts on the tube).
Good news! My boy got his two week check up today (yes, off by a few days). Though he was born weighing 7lbs. 12oz., today my baby gobbler weighs 8lbs. 4oz.! As much as this kid eats, I had a feeling he was gaining! Yesterday we had quite a stretch in which he was eating e.v.e.r.y h.o.u.r!
In order to help me get a little more rest, Brian put his foot down four nights ago and insisted that he take a feeding shift at night. (Thank goodness for my breast pump!) The first two nights were hairy (Bennett didn’t know what the heck his dad was up to and Brian didn’t quite have the hang of soothing down yet), but these last two have hit a good stride. Getting four straight hours of sleep is so great!
Speaking of breast milk, whoever said, “Don’t cry over spilled milk,” has obviously never accidentally spilled breast milk before. That stuff is money, man!
Enjoy this pic of our family voting outing from last week!
