2 weeks: Getting sick

Reid is 2 weeks old already! Hard to believe. He's already growing like a weed. At his 2 week midwife appointment he weighed 9lbs 5oz, which is 2oz less than Ruby at that age. Probably because he lost so much at the beginning. But he's doing great! My mom was here until Monday, which was a HUGE help. She cooked, cleaned, planted my garden, did laundry, held the babies, and a lot more. On Tuesday I got mastitis, which was no fun. Also, it was my first day with both kids by myself. That was hard and I may have cried a time or two. But we made it through the day! I've found that the hardest part is when Reid is crying and I need to get Ruby down for her nap. After I do get her down, Reid and I go take a nap in my bed too. That has been very nice.
He's been sleeping okay, but last night he started getting snotty in the middle of the night. I'm pretty sure Ruby brought home a cold from the nursery. :( It's hard to have to suck out his snot and to see him miserable.
 Yes, this happened. She took off her pants and diaper at nap time...
 So cozy in the Moby.
 Early morning with Daddy.
 Reading with Grandma.
 So cute! I knitted this sweater before I had Ruby. We did newborn photos on Friday, and I can't wait to see how they turn out!
 Sleepy guy. So sweet.

 Ruby and I went on an ice cream date. It was lots of fun.
 Morning cuddles! I love these two so much.
 Checking out his ears.
 Wrapped up like a baby.
 Cutie pie.
 Wrapping up Reid.
 She likes to kiss him. It's been a bit of a struggle the last few days, because she also likes to grab his head not in a nice way. We've been doing time out, but that isn't really working. Not sure what else to do though. We're trying to teach her gentle touches only.

 He loves sleeping with his arms up above his head.
 Kissing his lips.
 Snug as a bug.
 Cuddle time with Daddy.
 His sleepy grumpy face.
 I love this one!!
 Trying out my breast pump. :)
 Holding brother.
 Napping with Daddy.
 She came out like this and said, "I'm gonna get married."
 He loves to sleep. He's pacied out here.

We got our birth photos back from our friend Cassie. They turned out so beautiful! Here are some of the more appropriate ones. :)

Giving birth in the comfort of my own home was such a wonderful experience both times.

  1. Thanks for posting each week!! You are so faithful to do it and both dad and I enjoy it so much! I love the "first family photo" when you are still in the tub. Hope you are all completely well soon! No fun being sick! Give those two sweet children a hug from me!
    Love you all!
