One Week Old

Zac and Jax, hanging out on the sofa. Zac loves to hold him, but it always takes him a bit to get comfortable. He needs a pillow under his arm. He also likes to lay on the sofa, with Jax sleeping between his legs.

Cassidy has her baby in the swing.

Jax's favorite place is in the bouncer. He takes his longest naps in there, so much so that at night we put the bouncer in his crib and he sleeps in that. I don't know how much of a bad habit this is going to be, but for now, he's happy and content and will sleep over 3 hrs in it, so it works for us!!!

Jaxon did have a follow-up with the pediatrician earlier this week to check on his jaundice. He got his heel pricked and the little bugger slept through the whole thing (better than he had slept the night before!). The bilirubin levels came back normal, so that was the end of the that.

While at the peds, they went to weigh him. After getting him naked, but the diaper, Chuck put him on the scale. I was sitting in the corner and saw Chuck shaking his head and looking at me. He mouths over to me "That can't be right" and the nurse says -- "Five pounds, three ounces" and I go, wait a minute. We left the hospital yesterday and he weighed 8 lbs, 6 oz. So she says batteries must be going, I'll get another scale, so Chuck picks Jaxon up as the nurse goes to the next room to get a scale. She comes back in the room just in time to hear Chuck going, "WOOOAH" as I look over and see Jaxon peeing all over Chuck (LMAO!!) and then heard a little splush as he poops on the floor. We all had a good laugh over that. Jaxon put on quite a show. And with a scale in working order, Jaxon weighed in at 8 lbs, 7 oz.

He is doing well and we are settling into a bit of a routine, but I'm spoiled right now because Chuck's been home. It'll be a bit more intimidating when next week rolls around and he goes back to work for a few days. At least I have another few weeks with Zac to help. For the most part Jaxon is a pretty content little guy, but he has no tolerance for diaper changes!!! And when he's hungry, we have about 60 seconds to get him a bottle. Luckily, just like his big brother and sister, he likes his formula right out of the fridge, so we keep bottles at the ready.

AND so far, he doesn't spit up . . . this is NOT at all like his siblings. I have a stash of burp clothes tho, just in case.

Dani I am so happy for you and Chuck. I have been meaning to call you but you know how it is with work and real life. Jax is adorable and I can't believe how much Cassidy has grown. Time really does fly. I am going to plan to come and see you sometime soon since I live closer now. Take care of yourself girl and I will talk to you soon.

You and Chuck sure make pretty babies!
Nothing like a good poop before a weigh-in I always say!
