2 week Stats:
Well its been a LONG day. Poor Max has been sick, and at first I thought it was just teething but then it turned into 2 days of over 102 temp and I knew something was up. I started the day nursing the baby then rushing Max over to a dr. appointment then rushed home nursed the baby and took him to his 2 week check up. By the time I got home it was 2 in the afternoon and I had yet to even get dressed. I must have looked awesome running around town in workout clothes looking very stressed and disheveled.
The good news is the day is over, and Max is okay only a virus...but with a 2 week old baby you can never be to safe. Noah is also excellent and has gained back all his weight! After dipping down into the 5 pound range he rallied and is not back to birth weight and looking great. That is a relief because he has been nursing non stop and I have been pumping non stop because the kid only wants to nurse on one side so needless to say I am not really wearing a bra these days ha! I keep hoping he will want to latch on to my right side again one of these days and have had many trips to the lactation consultant...we keep working on it and I know he will figure it out.
Overall we have made it 2 weeks now with this sweet little baby and things are going good. Tomorrow is my first day alone with the boys because my mom is going back to work and everyone is gone. I am sure things will be okay as long as Max is feeling better. Wish me luck once we get over this hump of pumping and nursing the entire day I will venture of on the town with the 2 boys by myself...once that happens I know I've made it!
Noah Harris 2 weeks
Weight: 6 pounds 7 ounces
Height: 20 inches
Sleeps great, very calm, has long fingers and toes, dark hair, soft smooth kissable skin, and dark undetermined color eyes. He is so beautiful and I never thought I would feel so much love. He is such snorty baby and grunts for a good 10-15 minutes after he eats which is rather amusing and annoying around 4 am but I am sure he will grow out of it. He loves to be swaddled and lay on his dads chest. Oh I love him so much.
