Bradford had his 2 week check-up today, and all looked good. He weighed in at 9 lbs. 4 ounces and measured at 21 and 3/4 inches long. This puts him in the 75th percentile in both weight and height. Despite some difficulties with feedings, he is putting on weight and growing strong!
As for my thoughts on week 2…As I sit here snuggling with the little man on the couch, I cannot believe that he’s only 2 weeks old! It feels like we’ve had him home much longer than that. Every day I either say out loud or think that I cannot believe he is ours. I have enjoyed each day so far, and am soaking in the moments knowing he will not stay small for very long and sooner than we know will be out of this sweet newborn stage. We have spent the past week still recovering, resting a lot, and venturing out only a few times. It has been so nice to have visitors and people bring us meals so that we don’t have to think about this. Thanks to all our friends and family who have provided us with so much love and support.
Each new day, I grow more in love with our little guy and feel so incredibly blessed to be his mom. He still sleeps a lot throughout the day (and for some good stretches at night), so we do a lot of snuggling, relaxing, and of course, picture taking:
