Owen – Week 3

3 Weeks Old! Oh my goodness!

Owen is such a good baby. He only cries when he gets cold during diaper changes or when he can’t get comfortable.

He weighed about 8lbs 8oz earlier in the week, now he’s about 8lbs 13oz! He is eating every 3 hours or so. Sometimes he will get hungry earlier and want to eat more often. Like this week sometimes he would be hungry only like an hour and a half after eating.

Last night I forgot to set an alarm and he slept for 5 hours over night! I woke up like OH MY GOSH I OVERSLEPT! It’s a pain to wake him up, he’s such a great sleeper, it really sucks to have to wake him to eat! But he is still so little that I make sure that he wakes up to eat so he can keep growing, even though the pediatrician and my lactation consultant think he’s doing great with his weight gain. šŸ™‚

Breastfeeding is going well! It still hurts when he latches, but my right side seems to be doing a lot better than my left side, AKA The Slacker Boob. I hate the left side lol!

Owen is staying awake for a little longer now, but is still very sleepy! He is smiley and sweet and super duper cute!Ā ā™„

Emma has been adorable with him, she says his name all the time and likes to see him and say hi to him. I’m “training” her to be Mommy’s Little Helper and so far so good! šŸ™‚

From the moment he was born I really think that he just looks like a little BOY haha, so different from Emma.

Owen’s belly button fell off on day 15, he has had his first bath and his nails trimmed already! He liked his bath, but he screamed when he got out lol! This boy really doesn’t like being cold!

He has been wanting to be held more nowadays, and Mommy is definitely his favorite person, hooray! That’s 2 for 2! šŸ˜‰

I am so lucky to have been blessed with yet another amazing little baby, watching him grow is definitely bittersweet, I can’t believe that in just a few days he will be 1 month old!
