Jack: 2 and 3 Weeks

Took me a whopping 2 weeks to start slacking on the blog posts, ha. Oh well! I'm testing out actually staying awake past Max's bedtime tonight so I have a little extra time for blogging.

Jack has been busy since I last posted, mostly making crazy noises. He does not cry much, but even in his sleep he is constantly making disgruntled noises. How soon is too soon to move him to his own bedroom?

He had his two week doctors appointment and he was up to 19 1/2 inches and 6 lbs, 12 ounces. The doctor thought he might have acid reflux (based on our description of all the noises and spitting up), but after one night of medicine in which he woke up every 5 seconds to eat, I decided to try out not using the medicine for awhile and see how he does. Don't mess with my newborn sleep, thankyouverymuch.

Jack's weekdays have been pretty quiet- hanging out with mom and dad (til dad went back to work this week), watching his brother play, napping... but his weekend was busy! He visited his new baby cousin (he and Max's first cousin!) at the hospital on Saturday. Then, he went straight to a Christmas party where he was held by Santa for the second time. On Sunday, he went to a baby naming for my friend's new daughter. He rose to the occasion by actually being pretty quiet. His big brother Max wasn't bad either, except when everyone started singing and he said, "everyone, be quiet, you are going to wake up baby Jack!" (Jack was not asleep at all, but it's the thought that counts!"

Jack has also been pretty busy meeting so many important people in his life. He has had lots of visitors and has made some short visits to see his great-grandmothers!

Looks Like:

Likes: making noises, eating, pooping, his rock n play, being cuddled up...

Dislikes: waiting too long to eat, his bassinet....

Feeding: every 2-3 hours day and night basically

Sleeping: loudest sleeper ever, but usually does 1-2 hour stretches between each feeding, so not bad.

Big Brother Max is still doing well. He rebels in his own way, mostly by fighting naps and bedtime, but he is a good brother to Jack. I try to do most stuff for Max first, but when he does have to wait because I'm doing something with Jack he is pretty patient. He also always tells Jack "it's okay Jack" whenever he is crying. It's very sweet.


  1. Well you've already blogged more since Jack was born that you did when in the months leading up to this birth, so I think you are doing an excellent job! I love reading these posts and hearing what your boys are up to! Max sounds like such a sweet big brother. I loved the video you posted of Max saying "it's ok, Jack." Too sweet! And Jack is just beautiful!!

  2. Ok those friggin adorable little hats are SO CUTE!!!!! Omg. That is SO adorable that Max said "everyone be quiet you're going to wake up Jack" - I would have loved to see that. I bet everyone laughed so hard!
