14 Days

Will is 2 weeks old today! And already, he's growing like a weed. He has regained his birth weigh and more. I thought I noticed a little extra chunk in those cheeks!

He's still very much of a sleepy baby so juggling two kids hasn't been as bad as I had pictured. However, Will does have his morning and night reversed so he's awake for a longer period of time in the middle of the night. It's pretty brutal and we are working on straightening him out. He has a ferocious appetite - eating every 2-3 hours. When he's full and well rested, he's a contended little baby. Oh, and he has already flashed us his killer smile! It is the best.

I just love staring into his big brown eyes and giving him big squeezes. I never expected to snuggle with him as much as I did with Anna since he's a boy and all. But I actually find myself doing it more with Will...probably because I know he's my last baby and I will never get to do this again. Seriously, this little guy is pure bliss. I am loving it all, even at 2 in the morning when his eyes refuse to shut.

  1. I had that same fear about not snuggling as much with a boy as I would having a baby girl. But Ephram has totally surprised me. He's a huge cuddler even as a toddler (though only for short periods of time usually).

    Sidenote: I cried (I totally blame the pregnancy hormones) when cuddling with Ephram as a newborn fearing that with our next I wouldn't be able to cuddle them as much bc I wouldn't have as much one-on-one time as a result of having two kids to care for. So the fact that you feel you are cuddling Will even more than you did with Anna gives me huge hopes! I think having experienced the incredible fast growth rate of a baby with Ephram will help me slow down, put things aside, and just enjoy cuddling our second baby more as well. Maybe.
