2 weeks

Eli was 2 weeks old yesterday and had another doctor appointment today. He is doing great gaining weight! He was born at 5lb2oz, left the hospital at almost 5lb4oz, was 5lb11.5oz at 1 week, and today he weighed in at 6lb7oz! He is still tiny but he seems to be filling out a little bit. We can see a difference in his cute little cheeks.

He is a gassy little creature so he's been fussy lately. Josh went back to work on Monday and it has been rough. He works night shift and it is a looong shift, so that means I am on my own day and night, since he works all night and then sleeps all day and gets up to go back to work. I hope we can adjust to this schedule soon.

Everything is going fine though, other than all of us being quite tired. I need to take some more pictures... I've been so tired lately and just sitting around zoning out these days. I'll try to post something new soon.

Shannon - I just want to encourage you. "This too shall pass." I promise! :)

I remember being in a fog for the first 4 months, but then it starts getting better and better.

Love you guys!! Patty

PS Do you have family coming at all to help for a few days?

Good to get an update! I think this is the roughest part of new mommyhood because it's SUCH an adjustment. I promise it doesn't last forever--just hand in there! He is SO CUTE!!!

Let me know if you're ever going to bring him the Hizzle so I can run over and get my baby fix!

I can't believe he is already 2 weeks old. I can't wait to see more pics.
