One Week

I can hardly believe that a week has already gone by. It has seemed like such a blur! I'm also a little sad to think that he's already a whole week old. I look forward to doing all the fun things with him as he gets older but at the same time I just want to keep him a little newborn FOREVER.

Today, we had our first outing. We went to the lactation consultant for a weight check. On Monday when we left the hospital he was down to 7 lbs 2 oz which is a 8% weight loss. Yes, newborns typically lose weight right after birth but at the same time you want to make sure that they don't lose too much weight. So, today we had a weight check and I'm pleased to say that I have an over achiever on my hands. He weighed in at 7 lbs 11.5 ounces which is right at his birth weight. Typically you give a newborn 2 weeks to get back to his birth weight and well we made it in a week. Way to go Maddox!!!!

Josh & I are thoroughly enjoying parenthood! We couldn't imagine being any happier.

He looks so cute sitting up like that!

Seeing your 1 week photo reminded me of this really great blog of another new mom. She takes her daughters picture in the same chair each month and made her a little pin to show the progress. I thought it was a really cute idea so I'd pass it along :)
