Two Weeks Old
Today Nick is two weeks old. Another exciting week! Monday was Nick and mom's first day at home without Dad. Nothing terribly exciting happened. But Monday night, Nick's umbilical stump fell off. So Tuesday morning Mom gave Nick his first bath - here are some pictures. He did not like it one bit, but looked adorable in his UM hooded towel! Tuesday afternoon Mom took Nick back to the pediatrician for a weight check - the nurse said the goal weight was 7 lbs 10 oz, and Nick weighed in at 8 lbs even!! He really is a champion nurser :) Wednesday Nick met Azita, Dane and Lucy Frattarelli for the first time. They were nice enough to bring Mom and Dad some dinner and dessert, and brought some great board books for Nick. Thursday nothing exciting happened. Today Nick is going to the hospital with Mom to have her blood checked and then we're doing something fun with Lisa. Dad is very excited for the weekend - it's so hard for him to be at work all day, knowing his wife and baby are at home. We are looking forward to a nice family weekend!
Next week, there are no plans except Nick's next well-baby visit on Friday. Mom hopes the weather is nice so we can venture outside more.
I can't believe it's been two weeks since Nick was born. Time goes by so fast. Before we know it, he'll be a year old, and then he'll be starting school, and then it'll be prom time! We are taking as many pictures as possible and savoring every moment of his babyhood!
