Second week

Smiling in sleep means he's seeing angels in his dreams, according to Indian culture.

Week 2 has been enjoyable. Daily routine is starting to form, and I’m not quite as nervous around a “fragile” infant. This has allowed me to really savor these precious moments with little Wes and share him with friends and family. While we’ve ventured outside the house a few times, I’ve also had plenty of slow, quiet days at home. I’ve been amazed at how we’ve all begun to adapt to each other in this house, and it’s not so hard to do.

HIGHLIGHTS / EVENTFUL THINGS OF THE WEEK:

  • First trip to Ellenberger Park – with Grandma and cousins Elli & Jeremiah.
  • First trip to Leah’s parents’ lake house.
  • First trip to Sunday service.
  • First walk around the neighborhood (with dogs!).

WES’ ACCOMPLISHMENTS THIS WEEK:

  • Opened eyes and stayed alert for at least 2 hours every day.
  • Smiled purposely at Mommy. Heart melt.
  • Discovered how to grab fistfuls of hair.
  • Mimicked Mommy’s faces & stuck out tongue in response.
  • Slept average of 4 consecutive hours each night.
  • Goop-eye started to clear up.
  • Lifted head and neck consistently all week.
  • Umbilical cord fell off!

STEVEN’S ACCOMPLISHMENTS THIS WEEK:

  • Worked in the office all week.
  • Gave Wes his first bath.
  • Completed a solo trip to IKEA and successfully put together the furniture (usually Leah does this).

LEAH’S ACCOMPLISHMENTS THIS WEEK:

  • Lost another 5 lbs. Score.
  • Visited Joy’s House coworkers and Leah’s mom’s workplace with baby-in-tow.
  • Successfully nursed at a restaurant. This wasn’t as weird as I thought. Thank goodness for nursing covers!
  • Started reading again.

Life is good! Come visit us if you’d like. He’s pretty swell.
