One Week Old

Today Nick is one week old. His first week was an exciting week for everyone! We brought him home from the hospital Sunday night, and Grammie and Grandpa Lundberg and Uncle Jim were nice enough to bring dinner over. Monday Mom and Nick hung out while Dad worked from home. Tuesday was Nick's first pediatrician's appointment - he gained 4 ounces (yay!), but had to have his blood drawn (boo!) :( Tuesday was also Nick's first playdate with Cooper Swanson and Gillian Knudsen :) Wednesday Mom's cousin Brandi, her husband Doug and their one year old, Ethan, brought dinner over and hung out a little. Dinner was delicious and it was nice to talk "parent" talk :) Thursday Mom went out for a few hours and Nick stayed with Dad - who did a great job! When Mom got home, her doula came over to help with nursing and gave Mom some pointers, and taught her the football hold. Then Friday morning the highlight of the week - Aunt Krystyn and Uncle Zack arrived!! Friday was a fun day - and at night Grandma Juarez came over and everyone had an early Easter dinner.

Next week is not nearly as exciting. Another doctor's appointment on Tuesday is the only thing planned!

Nursing is going great. We are learning more about Nick everyday. He hates being naked or on his back. He loves playing with his hands on his face. He makes lots of adorable faces. He likes being talked to and sung to. The cloth diapering is going well - although we are looking forward to him fitting into the Bum Genius diapers :)

We just never contemplated how easily he would fit into our lives and now it feels like we always had him. We both love him so much and think he is just so adorable!!!
