One week down, a lifetime to go!
It still seems surreal I had Waylen one week ago today! It’s all has gone by so fast and it’s so weird to think that he could still be in my belly since I’d only be 39 weeks on Thursday. So far adjusting to parenthood has been pretty smooth. I’ve been getting about 4 hours of sleep each day but I don’t think the lack of sleep has actually caught up to me yet because I’m still feeling just fine!
Waylen had his first pediatricians appointment yesterday and he’s already gaining back some weight! He currently is 7lbs 15oz and has been eating great so far so let’s hope that continues! We were told in the hospital he has a “tongue tie” that could hinder breastfeeding but we’ve been really lucky and haven’t had any trouble so far. I’d heard so many horror stories about breastfeeding — some from my own mother– so I was expecting it to be really difficult. So far though, it has gone very smoothly!! (Hopefully I’m not speaking too soon though ha)
Our daily life at home has basically been feed him, change him, watch him sleep ha. And the best part, the dogs seriously LOVE him. Ramone wants to be with him at all times. Even when I wake up to feed Waylen in the middle night, Ramone HAS to come with us to the nursery. They’re seriously the cutest!
We’ve been peed and pooped on
and pretty much have gone through what seems like a million diapers and wipes already ha but we did just learn yesterday that you shouldn’t use baby wipes (who knew?!) so now we are sticking to just water!
As for myself, this morning I am officially down 17.6 of the 19.2 lbs I gained while pregnant.
Considering I haven’t done anything that weight is probably just all baby and fluid. Since I’ll be breastfeeding I’m not really concerned with loosing the weight right now. Instead I’m focused on just eating and drinking enough to keep up my supply! Unfortunately I have still yet to have an alcoholic beverage ha but I’m sure Chappy will mix up something nice for me soon to celebrate.
Here are some pictures from the past week:
Basically we are pretty much obsessed with baby Waylen. I think we take about 100 pictures of him a day, that’s normal right???
