We arrived home on Monday from the hospital. Nathan did great in the car on the way home, slept and hated the sun being in his eyes.
Wyatt has been obsessed with the baby. He didn't realize that a new addition was here until we showed him the baby, then it was on. He wants to see what he is doing, is very observant about his crying. It is going to take a while for hime to get used to little Nathan.
We are trying to get into the swing of a routine. Night one was rough - he slept waaay to much that day and Mommy wasn't making quite enough for him to eat just yet...So we were awake and hungry from 10pm to 3am.
Last night was much better. We kept him awake from 8 pm on - his Granne read him a story and he had a bath. Woke up like clockwork every two hours and fell asleep like a champ. We have been trying to get him to love his bassinet, but also let him sleep a little bit in the bed.
This morning, he and his Daddy cuddled, melting my heart...
Nathan is officially on day two of his life. If possible, he is more perfect today than yesterday. He got checked out by the pediatrician and everything looks good. Received his first vaccination and had a hearing test (he can hear). He has had many a visitor today and handled the attention well, of course.
For those of you interested in the birth story, I will give a quick rundown. In hindsite, I was likely having some contractions at the clinic on Friday afternoon. I went home early and rested. When Trace came home I has having more of the same pains, but thought they were Braxton-Hicks. I continued to have some after we went to bed, and at 1 am decided that I was in labor and needed to get Trace up. We started timing and at 3 am headed into the hospital. When we arrived, I was 5 cm dilated. Everything progressed pretty quick and at 9:20 am, after one hour of pushing, out he came - all 8 lbs 13 oz of him. We are still in a bit of shock that he is ours, but on cloud nine. Here are a few pictures from day two.
It has been a very long and wonderful day. We arrived at the hospital @ 3:30 am and he was born @ 9:20. I'm sure Sarah can give details as she sees fit but I'll just say that she is one tough cookie. He weighed 8lb 13 oz. 21in long.Here are some pics.
