Week 3

Life lesson #176: Always remember to PROMPTLY cover a little mans manhood upon removing his diaper. Forgetting to do so will result in a pee shower covering you, baby, and all surrounding walls. This rule also applies when putting a little man in a warm bath.
I've learned this lesson the hard way one too many times. I sometimes like to play Russian roulette while changing his diaper. "oh, he just peed, there's no way he'll pee on me this time!" WRONG or "oh it's the middle of the night and he's half asleep, he won't get me this time." WRONG. I keep learning this lesson over and over again, sigh. Maybe one day I'll actually learn my lesson and keep that thing covered!

I did't realize until we had this little man just how crazy life was about to become. People try and warn you. They tell you to get your sleep now, and enjoy your time before little one arrives. Yeah, yeah, sure people. But they are SO right! I totally should have gotten my sleep then, because I'm sure not getting it now. I think one of the hardest parts of having a newborn is the whole breast feeding process. It literally consumes your life. Just imagine having to plan your life in 2 hour increments. Every 2-3 hours, 24 hours a day, you need to be somewhere where you can whip out a boob and sit for 30 minutes. I know it will get easier, and the breast feeding benefits totally out way the negatives that I'm feeling now. I just have to keep looking at the positive, look at these boobs!!!

Weight updates:
Little man has packed on almost 2 pounds since birth. He's already pushing 9 pounds!! Rock on little one!
Mommy is down the 20 pounds she gained plus another 5! Rock on Mommy!! (and yet another bonus of breast feeding, you lose weight while consuming boxes of girl scout cookies!)

Here's a picture of little man and his first friend Zebra. He spend a good 30 minutes talking and staring at this guy, so sweet!

And finally...Mom, I'm so over these pictures, give me some food!


  1. So sweeeet!! Can't wait to hold him!! Keep up with the breastfeeding. I had NO idea it would take such dedication... once again, something not in the books, right?? It seriously does feel like it rules your life sometimes! You are right, though, the benefits far outweigh the hassle. If it's any encouragement to you, my kids have still never had major sickness to this day. A couple little colds here and there, but I really believe in the positive influence breastmilk has had on their immune systems. Just saying that to give you something to think about when you're having to whip that thing out around the clock. haha It will be worth it! :) Love ya!
