One Week Already!

Good grief time is already flying.  It seriously feels like I was just riding in the car headed to the hospital and getting ready to meet this sweet boy.  And it has been over a week!  Wow.  I am trying to treasure every middle of the night feeding and every diaper change and every sweet snuggle because I know time is going to fly by even faster this time!  Don't worry - I don't plan on documenting every day of Jack's life - I just thought his first week was a monumental occasion!  Here is a picture of him from each day this past week...

Here are a few things I have learned about my sweet boy in his first week of life...

-He loves to be swaddled to go to sleep
-He will sometimes take a pacifier
-He loves to look out the window
-He finds the ceiling fan very fascinating
-When he is awake, he is very alert!  And he will stay awake for 2-3 hours at a time (usually twice throughout the day)
-He only cries if he has gas or is hungry or needs a new diaper
-When he is hungry, he needs immediate gratification - he kicks those legs and shouts at me!
-He make some of the funniest expressions
-He wear newborn diapers and clothes
-He are very ticklish
-He get the hiccups just as much out of my belly as you did when you were still in there
-He smiles way more often than I remember Katie smiling as a new baby (of course I know they aren't real smiles - they're the I'm-about-to-fall-asleep smiles)
-He makes cute squeaky noises
-He nurses about 15 minutes on each side - and eats about 7-8 times/day
-He appears to enjoy riding in the car (thank goodness!)
