Morgan's 1 month doc visit

Morgan had his 1 month visit with the pediatrician today. He is 9 lbs 6 oz. As expected, the little guy has packed on the pounds in the last week. He is healthy and growing, with only a couple maladies - including a little heat rash, a small umbilical hernia (healing just fine) and some diaper-matters, not to be discussed here. (Blogger rule #726 "Never write about poop: including but not limited to the shape of, color of, quantity of, frequency of, accidents concerning, or clothing ruined by...").

This past weekend we took a quick trip to Florida for "Uncle Tom's" 40th birthday. It was a fabulous trip -- even if it was short. Morgan got to meet his Florida grandparents and Nathan was spoiled rotten.

Next week is Nathan's last week of school and summer officially starts -- I am sure it will be a super busy one. We are looking forward to introducing Morgan to cousins and friends, Aunts & Uncles and at least one plane trip (although I suspect several - that is just how we Wiers roll...)

Massive Morgan: quick update

Morgan has had a week of firsts, including his first rash, first bout of constipation, first road trip, first surprise party, and first visit with Pappy and Grandma Sue.

He also went from eating roughly 2 ounces of breast milk every 2 hours or so to eating 4-6 ounces of breast milk OR formula (sometimes AND when necessary) at least every 2 hours, and sometimes more.

And while I have no official measurement on this... my home scale is weighing the little bugger in at 9-10 lbs. (Doc appt Tuesday).

While that might not seem like a lot, he looks ENORMOUS to me... growing out of clothes and getting chubby thighs. Amazing since he was 6.5 lbs just 4 weeks ago.

I'd post pics, but the camera was on the fritz - Ill upload the iphone photos tomorrow.

well -- gotta go.... feed the baby!

Cinco do Mayo

The boys and I had a low-key day topped off with a low-key Cinco de Mayo celebration at the local Mexican restaurant. One of these days I will let someone take a picture of me, but right now I look like a steam-roller plowed me over. I have officially exited the 2-week baby honeymoon phase and entered the no-sleep-for-the-mama phase.

Good news is that all those midnight (and 2am, and 4am, and 6am...) mama-lattes has plumped the little dude up and he has officially grown out of a couple of the preemie outfits he was in. He isn't quite big enough for the newborn clothes yet though, so Morgan is sporting the casual, and teen-approved ridiculously-too-big-clothes look and the alternative "all I need is the diaper, since I live in the South and it is 80 degrees anyway" look. Ironic since the kid has clothes literally spilling out of the closet...

2 Weeks

These pics were taken way back yesterday, before Morgan's belly button made its appearance, (Nate was relieved that the "black thingy" was finally off.)

Here is one to show how tiny he is.

More later... thank goodness for digital cameras...
