Graham's 2 Week Check-Up

I have been out of the blogging world these past 2 weeks adjusting to our new life with our sweet new baby. We are doing great, although we did hit a few rough patches. I got mastitis in both of my breasts, but went to the doctor last Monday and he gave me a big shot which helped me feel sooo much better. We layed low last week because we had so many of our loving family and friends come visit us the first week home, and since I was recovering from being sick and childbirth, needed to take it easy. I am finally off of my antibiotics and pain medicine and I am feeling good. Graham is doing great too.
At his 1 week check up here were his stats:
Weight: 7lbs., 1.9 oz.

Height: 19 1/4 inches

At 2 weeks:
Weight 7lbs, 7oz. still not back to birth weight
Height: 20 1/4
He was in the 25th percentile for everything else including height and weight.

We go back this Thursday just for a weigh. Hopefully he has gained his birth weight back and then some. He is fill
ing out his clothes more, so I think he is doing good, and he has no shortage of pee and poop diapers.

We have fallen head over heels for our little guy. Here are some of the cute and funny things he does:

- Loves to be nursed
- Loves riding in the car
- Folds his little hands together like he's praying
-When he is hungry his cries have an "N" sound at the beginning
-Loves to be swaddled at night and wakes up if his hands get out
- Doesn't suck his thumb but sucks his two middle fingers
-Cries when he gets his diaper chang
ed
-Cries when he gets a bath except when he gets his hair washed under the faucet
-Is a super laid-back baby, everyone is always telling us how lucky we are
- Loves his swing and vibrating seat
-Already smiles and makes laughing noises on occasion!
-Already trying to hold his head up--he's really strong!
-LOVES his Daddy and when his daddy talks to him and holds him
-Sleeps 3-4 hours at night between feedings
-Nurses about every 2 hours dur
ing the day

Here is Graham this weekend at my parents house just hanging out while Mommy read a magazine...
