Two-week update

Samuel had his two-week check-up on Wednesday this week; he's gained back the weight he had lost while in the hospital and then some, and is now weighing in at 9 pounds, 1 ounce. He's been holding his head up on his own on a regular basis and exhibits great upper body strength. I have the feeling I'm going to have a bruiser on my hands. He also managed to pee on me during his exam--good times! Captain Husband and I continue to learn new things about Sammy every day, and we're getting better at deciphering his cries. He's actually a very good baby all things considered and usually only fusses when it's one of four things: he's hungry, he needs a diaper change, he's gassy, or he's too hot/too cold. Once we figure which one it is, he calms right down.

I've been working on writing Sammy's birth story and hope to have it posted sooner rather than later. It's just been a bit difficult finding the time to do any work on it in between the seemingly constant pumping (Sammy's jaundice made him a lazy feeder and, quite frankly, pumping is working for us rather well--Sammy gets breast milk and I get a break in the fact that anyone can feed him), diaper changes, washing cloth diapers, etc. CH has been great through it all and together we've attained a pretty good rhythm, tag-teaming the diaper changes, feedings, and entertainment. I honestly have no idea what I'm going to do when he leaves for Korea at the end of the month; so much to the point that I'm questioning what I'm going to do for the next six months. We've got several options to choose from, which I'll elaborate upon in a future post. Remind me in case I forget; I have the feeling that I'd forget my own head these days if it wasn't attached to my body.

Please keep the pictures/posts coming--absolutely love getting my "Sammy fix". I know you're overwhelmed/exhausted, but you will SOOO enjoy reading these(as will Sam)in the years to come.
PS. From the eyes up, he looks just like you at that age! Aunt C.
