My, how times flies!

Spencer is a whole 2 weeks old today...we can't imagine life without him, yet he's only been with us for 2 weeks. It's amazing how things can change in a blink of an eye!

Yesterday he had his first shot, hepatitis B, and took it like a champ. You can tell that he is definitely his mother's child as it took him a whole 30 seconds to get over it! He weighed in at a whopping 7lb 1 1/2oz, but the doctor thought it was kind of odd, so he weighed him again a few minutes later and he weighed in at 7lb 2oz. The doctor thinks that there was a weight error somewhere along the lines, so Spencer will be going back for a weight check-in on Friday. By then, the doctor wants him to weight at least 7lb 3oz. With that, I must throw in that he is eating like a champ; now taking in 3oz at a feeding which varies from every 3-4 hours. The good news is that I can give him a bottle at midnight and he'll sleep until at least 5AM. We're keeping our fingers crossed that this is not just a trend, yes it is a sign of good things to come!

We started tummy time! This was taken right before he fell asleep...

I just love this outfit that grandma bought him and Spencer LOVES his Boppy!

He's such a cutie! Congrats on getting all that sleep. We are still waking up every 2-3 hours to make sure Zach gets enough to eat. He had been sleeping pretty well when we took him home, but apparently was getting dehydrated from not eating often enough. We had to re-admit to the hospital for his jaundice, so we're being extra careful now and feeding him a lot. I look forward to getting more than 3 hours of sleep at a time. Enjoy it!!!
