Two weeks old!

I can't believe I just gave birth two weeks ago to this sweet little man!
I am feeling really great and have ventured out more than once with all three kids by myself (which I seriously didn't think was going to happen). It helps that the weather has been nice but the cold temps return tomorrow unfortunately.

Isaiah's second week of life was much, MUCH smoother than the first. He's kind of fallen into a routine but not a strict schedule per se. He's doing great at night but still nurses about every 2 1/2 to three hours which I suppose is on track for a newborn. He's pretty happy during the day while he's awake. He gets cranky in the evenings but the last two nights, he's only cried for a few minutes.  The only complaint I have is that his daytime awake time is when Olivia is napping. So if only I could get them on the same nap schedule.....

He's not to fond of bath time but I don't remember the other two liking baths at this age either. He doesn't like his diaper changed very much...especially if he's asleep.

At two weeks, he's already made his first trip to church and of course got a lot of "ooooos and aaahhhh's, he's so cute"s. He's been to Target, out to eat, Whole Foods, a school party, the park twice, JoAnns, Hobby Lobby and to our friend Amy's house. What can I say, I'm not going to succomb to cabin fever!

He has his two week check up on Friday. According to the home scale I have from mom, he's gaining about 3 ounces every two days. So hopefully his weight will be good when we're at the doctor!

The time is going by so fast. I want to cherish all of these little newborn days even though I would love some sleep! We are so thankful to have him and look forward to watching him grow.
