Two Weeks Old

I cannot believe that Liam has been with us for a full two weeks already, it has flown by. He is eating a solid 3+ ounces at each feeding with is typically at 3am, 6am, 9am, 12pm, 4pm, 6pm, and 9pm although lately he has been interested in eating every 1.5-2 hours in the evening. Our little guy pees... a lot! Many that kiddo can fill up a diaper :-) he is definitely what they would call a heavy wetter. Speaking of diapers...during his first week at home he started leaking out of almost every diaper. We tired everything, new brands, putting his little "guy" downward but he kept leaking, one night we changed his outfit 3 times. So we tried moving him up to size 1 diapers from newborns and problem solved! Woohoo..... the size ones look huge but they keep him try and that makes me happy. I noticed yesterday that it looks like his newborn sleep and plays won't be lasting much longer. When he extends his legs his feet are all the way to the bottom, pretty soon he won't be able to extend his legs straight. Last night we also took Liam on his longest car ride yet, we went to McDonald's and BK to pick up dinner. He loved the car ride but did not like when we stopped moving.

Our Day:
3am: feeding, new diaper and back to sleep
6am: feeding, new diaper and back to sleep
9am: feeding, new diaper and outfit, lay by mommy while she pumps, pack up all out stuff and head downstairs
9:30-10: sit in swing while mommy feeds kinsey and nigel and herself breakfast while running back and forth to give Liam his binkie
10-12 (normally): awake time, listen to music and dance, play with Freddie the Firefly, read books
12-4: afternoon nap in swing while mommy cleans up, eats lunch and sometimes naps or takes a bath while i sit in my bouncy seat or crib
4pm: feeding, new diaper, nap on mommy until daddy gets home
5:30: Papa time! Daddy gets home and holds Liam while mommy makes dinner.
6pm-9pm: feedings, new diapers, and awake time
9pm-11pm: time to bounce and dance to keep little man content, by 10 he is in his bouncy seat with the vibrate on until he falls asleep around 11 when we head up to bed for the night :-)
