Two Weeks

Nolans_toes_edited1



If you're a mom, you might remember that the goal of the two-week doctor appointment is to have the baby's weight back up to the birth weight. Babies usually lose weight in the hospital, while their moms worry about when their milk will "come in" (Daily, sometimes hourly it seems, nurses ask you, "Has your milk come in?" Like it is out having a smoke outside somewhere...).



Today was Nolan's 2-week appointment. When we left the hospital, he weighed 7lbs 12 oz (down from his original weight of 8lbs 7.5 ounces). Today he weighed...



(drum roll)Little_grin_blog 



8lbs. 10 oz.



Remember the scene in "Cast Away" when Tom Hanks starts a fire and thumps his chest while yelling: "Look what I have created. I have made FIRE!"



That's how you feel when your baby grows and you know somehow your body has provided him with the nourishment to do so. It's pretty cool.



(and yes, that top photo is the main reason I wanted an SLR camera--thank you again, Bri. It took three babies to do it, but we finally got a toe shot in focus!)
