Moving Into the Nursery

John has moved into the nursery and out of our bedroom! Tonight marks his third night of sleeping in his crib in the nursery. That makes this our new best friend!


Sleeping soundly during TV time again.

Sleeping Peacefully

John continues to enjoy TV time in the den on one of our laps asleep on his side.

2 Week Appointment & 1st Bottle

John had his two week appointment today, and he did great! He has grown to 21 inches, and he has also gained 20 ounces in 12 days and is now 9 pounds and 3 ounces. Dr. Kemper said his weight and length are in right proportions so he is just growing right along. His heart sounded perfect, and everything else checked out okay as well. At one point while she was examining him, he stretched out his arms and she commented on his huge hands.

Dr. Kemper also gave us the okay to go ahead and try bottle feeding so John got his first bottle this afternoon which he gulped down without a problem!

Chilling in My Bouncer!

Sleeping Like His Daddy

We were watching TV last night, and John slept on a pillow in our lap. He was sleeping on his side with a hand next to his head just like his daddy. Doesn't he look so peaceful!

First Bath and First Time in Bouncer

Baby John had a couple of "firsts" today . . .
He got his first bath at home and used his new bouncer for the first time. Some pics of both are below and a brief video of bath time. He definitely enjoyed resting in his bouncer with the vibration on, but he isn't too sure about taking a bath as you can see in the video below! I'm sure that he'll get a little better, and we've got a new strategy on how to give him a bath too. Hopefully next time we'll also remember to move our finger from the corner of the lens next time.
