14 Days Old

September 29th, 2008

Josh is two weeks old now.  It has been an absolutely wonderful time for us.  Watching all his funny faces, inspecting his little body parts, and holding him while he sleeps. (So I’m a little sappy…) Granted, there are also the not so fun parts – Cris’ body slowly healing, sleep deprivation, pee, poop and vomit everywhere.  But I’m pretty sure we’ll forget that stuff in due time.

We’ve had two pediatrician visits so far; one on his fifth day and the two week checkup.  I’m told the “Fifth Day” visit is a little unusual but that was because the pediatricians aren’t associated with our hosipital and it was mostly a meet and greet type of appointment.  And yesterday we had our “two week” visit.  It seems that Josh likes to show off for the nurses…

On the first visit he showed them he knew how to scream, breast feed, pee, poo, and barf.  (I’m laughing just thinking about it.)  They all loved him.  And yesterday, he really showed off for Nurse Dawn.  Thirteen days old and he tried to do some crawling.  When that didn’t work, he rolled over instead!  Apparently, rolling over doesn’t normally happen until the 3-5 month mark….  And I caught it all on video!   So enjoy this little video clip and we’ll keep on posting updates!!

We hope you are all doing well and thank you all for your prayers and warm wishes.
