oh, boy!!

anderson is now 6 weeks old! wow!

he's now getting on a schedule with feeding and sleeping. he's doing very well at night. last night, he actually went 3 hours between feedings! he's not sleeping as much during the day and really likes to look around now. and the boy LOVES bath time!! he just lays there and looks around. he's grown so much. i'm not sure what he weighs, but i'm guessing 10 pounds. all i know is that the kid has an awesome double chin now! he really likes eating....a lot. it feels like he eats all the time! jakob and i are enjoying him so much! we love laying him in the bed in between us and just staring at him and laughing at all of his moans and grunts. anders makes so much noise, i swear the neighbors can probably hear him! aunt lindsey says he sounds like a swingset when he eats!! and he does! it's hilarious! he has his 2 month check up on july 17 where he will get his first round of shots...ouch...not looking forward to it.

we love him so much! i finally had a night away from him last night to see jakob and joshua play (thank you aunt sarah!) and the whole time i felt weird because i didn't have something attached to me! i missed him so much and felt like such a goob because i wanted to show everyone that asked about him pictures and videos on my phone!! i honestly couldn't wait to go see him! jakob and i are so in love with this little nugget!!

3 weeks of baby!

anderson is now 3 weeks old! it's been a very eventful 3 weeks. we've had lots of visitors, 2 ER visits (one for me and one for anders), jakob went back to work so it's just me and the babe during the day now, and tons of eating (on anders part!). i had a vaginal laceration (probably from the vacuum used to get anders out) and had to be rushed to the hospital by my mom and jakob 6 days after being home. thank goodness my mom and sister were here. anders was fine while i was gone sleeping with his aunt kristie. and aunt kristie was in heaven sleeping with anders! we had a good visit while they were all here. i cannot wait for my family to come back...i will be able to get out of the house with them next time!!! anders had to go to the ER because he threw up a couple of times in a couple of hours. he's been spitting up a lot and throwing up sometimes after he eats, so we went to the ER to get it checked out. turns out, he has reflux. go figure. jakob and i both have it bad. inri even has reflux! it's only perfect that anders has it too. so now, he's on baby zantac. and he HATES it. he gags and makes faces and spits it out. so dramatic. so part of my family.
we're all adjusting well. jakob is now getting used to interrupted sleep. he's on diaper duty on the weekends...meaning he gets up during the night on the weekends to change the diapers. anders gets up every 2-3 hours to eat. i usually get 6 hours of sleep during the night! of course not consistantly. he's really a good baby. and SO cute! he's grown so much. he's now out of newborn clothes. he's starting to stay awake a lot more. he kind of laughed the other day. i thought my heart was going to explode when i heard him and looked over and saw him smiling and making a laughing noise. he grunts and groans more than any baby i've ever been around. he makes a TON of noise when he eats and sleeps. it's hilarious. he's such a boy!!
it's funny because i can't wait to see what he's going to look like at 6 months or what he's going to sound like when he starts talking and i can't wait for it. but also, i found myself getting sad that he's outgrown his newborn clothes! i want things to speed up, but also want them to stay the same..its weird. time flies by so fast. i'm really trying to take in all i can with him now. i know that when he's running outside to play or going to his first day of 3rd grade, that i will want to be back sitting in this chair, holding him and watching him sleep at 3 weeks old again.
