Two weeks old...
Yesterday was the little guy's two-week birthday, can you believe it? For us, the time has gone extremely quickly, especially since the days kind of blend together. Sometimes it's hard for us to tell what day it is unless we stop to think about it. I think we're doing okay though, as Isaiah is starting to develop his sleeping & eating schedule. We've been fortunate that he's pulling 3 & 4 hour stretches, but there are still times when he goes only 1- 2 hours before he's hungry!
So with his two-week birthday came his two-week doctor visit. After all the visits to the doctor to test his jaundice, it was actually a nice change to go in without having to leave with a crying baby from the heel-prick blood test. Our little one is really on the up-swing of things. After his immediate weight loss in the hospital, he's been on the positive side, gaining more and more weight with each visit. Here are his current stats: Isaiah now weighs 8 pounds and 10 ounces, he's 20.25 inches long, and his head circumference is 37.5 cm. The doctor isn't worried about this little guy, as he has proven that he's going through one of his many growth spurts! Although it's hard to tell, Isaiah weighs more now at two weeks than Makenna did at birth. It's like Kenna was fuller where Isaiah is more lanky. I'm sure he'll get some mass fairly soon, especially the way he's been eating!
