Today was a success. I typically don't get much accomplished during the day. Mainly because I'm too busy snuggling and kissing this little face. But, today, I was able to eat 3 meals and a couple snacks, shower and fix my hair, do some laundry (including folding it) and upload some pictures. It only took 4 weeks.

First Four Weeks

The first four weeks have flown by! Gavin's days are spent sleeping, eating and pooping. Mommy's days are filled taking care of all of these things. My house has been a disaster since I brought Gavin home and I could really care less. I don't pass up any opportunities to snuggle with him because I know he won't be this little for long. He's our little tree frog.

We go back to the doctor Friday for his 1 month well baby check. I'm interested to see how his stats have changed since his 2 week well check. All he wants to do is eat so I'm sure his weight is no longer an issue.

Here are some pictures from the other day. I have yet to capture a smile on camera yet...the camera is never where it needs to be when I need it!

First Pediatrician Appointment

We had our first pediatrician appointment on Saturday. The nurse escorted us to the exam room and told us to strip him down so we could weigh him. Lonnie took care of this since I was busy filling out paperwork. Everyone knows you have to be careful with little boys....everyone except Lonnie apparently. As soon as he took off Gavin's diaper he started peeing everywhere. All over Gavin, all over the exam table and all over the WALL. The only thing Lonnie had available to him was the wipe he had gotten out. The clean diaper was still in the diaper bag. Lonnie started freaking out "What do I do! What do I do! Come help!" All I could do was laugh. I don't move as fast as I used to after the c-section so I wasn't much help.

Now Lonnie's extra careful when he changes Gavin's diaper. Lesson learned. The good news is everything was fine at the pediatrician's office. Gavin's gained back 4 oz that he lost after birth and his bilirubin levels went down so he doesn't have jaundice.

Gavin's Birthday

Gavin was born on August 31, 2010 at 8:06 p.m. He weighed 6 lbs and 5 oz and was 20 inches long. 10 fingers and 10 toes and absolutely perfect.
