The Two Week Appointment

I do love doctor's appointments when shots are not involved.  And unfortunately, the next one for Little Mister does involve shots.  But for now, let's talk about how great his two week check up went!  It was actually at 2 weeks, 3 days, but it was still a good one!
By two weeks, wee ones are supposed to be back at birth weight.  Well, this feeding every two hours is definitely paying off - Ryan weighed in at a whopping 7 pounds, 5 ounces! Yay!  And he measured 20 inches long - he grew almost an entire inch in just that amount of time...pretty amazing to me!
So rather than needing to eat 12 times a day (whew!), he is now down to about 10 times a day.  And let me tell you...that is still a.lot.  This past weekend - both Friday and Saturday nights, he went 5 hours between feedings (which also allowed me to pump for the first time) and I got excited.  Well...let's just say it is not a trend!  He is still eating about every 2.5-4 hours at night (he is waking up on his own hungry) and every 2-2.5 hours during the day.  By 2 months, he should be down to 7-8 feedings per day - woohoo! :)  But for now, we've got to make sure that boy continues to grow!
And just because it is cute of both of them, here is a picture of Ryan and Tanja on one of her visits!
Stay tuned for a post on my first day flying solo with three kids, the nursery, Katie's room, Jack's room, and a few 4th of July decorations!!
In other news, GO USA!  Big soccer game this afternoon! I BELIEVE THAT WE WILL WIN!
