Alas, He is Growing Up Already

Call me foolish, but I kinda hoped the newborn phase would last more than 2 weeks.  Sigh.  It is with a heavy heart that I report newborn diapers are a bit too snug, newborn outfits are a bit too short, he will not tolerate a swaddle, and you can notice a difference in heft when carrying him.  But it's not all bad news.  He is now above his birth weight!  So I no longer have to wake him up every 2-3 hours to eat, even if he's in a deep baby slumber.  Which will in turn make both of us much happier!

Speaking of waking a sleeping baby.  I share.  It's all about the grunts, meeps, and baby farts.

His vocabulary is less coos and babbles, more squeaks and lip smacks.  In fact he sounds quite a bit like a bulldog puppy.  What, with all the grunting and heavy breathing. . .even snoring.  He's all boy.  And boy oh boy is he loved.


  1. Hee! He's so sweet and tiny!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. So sweet. Makes me want to have another one (kind of). I miss those brand new baby days.
