The first few weeks as a family of 5.

This is late, but I still want to write it all down.

The girls adjusted so well to our new family member. We really haven't noticed any jealousy from either one of them. They love to cuddle with him, give him kisses, cover him with a blanket, and sing to him if he cries.

As always, a new baby means a whole list of "firsts". First time in his crib.
First sponge bath at home. Pics courtesy of Micah since I was the one bathing him. :)
First stretch-out session. ;)
Noah weighed 6 lbs 10 oz at his five day well baby visit. He had gained three ounces since his D/C from the hospital, so we were pleased. He loves to eat, and nurses every 1 1/2 to 2 hours when he's awake, but can go for stretches of like four hours when he's sleeping. On average, he usually makes it between 2-4 hour stretches at night and is usually up twice to nurse. We just love him to pieces and are so blessed that he's in our family.
