Another busy week for Wesley. Two more doctor visits (one trip to his, and one trip to Stephanie’s doctor). Stephanie is healing perfectly, and Wesley is back up to his birth weight (apparently babies lose weight right after birth and they want them to get back up to birth weight by two weeks).
We’re learning more about breastfeeding, diapering, dressing, etc. I used to look at baby clothes and say “that looks cute” and “he would look good in those” or “nice outfit”… and NOW I think “that would be hard to put on” and “how would I change a diaper with THAT on” and “he’s going to fight me if I try to put that on him” … :)
The big news of week two?… he’s starting singing exercises (or maybe he’s just tired). Check out this video:
Here’s us doing a duet:

Here’s a bonus… an outtake from the movie above… I didn’t realize I had the “flash” on when starting the video so the light kind of was maybe a little bright for Wesley. SORRY!
Our neighbors in the room beside us at Martel got Wesley some cool clothes… here’s one of the hats he got:
This was a week of firsts… the first week alive, a first car ride, first doctor’s visit, first bath, and Stephanie breastfeeding in public for the first time :) … and no… he hasn’t gotten a hair cut yet… that’s just how it is! Here are some pictures from week one: http://www.flickr.com/photos/jdfrey/sets/72157628558919951/
Also I severely underestimated the amount of sleep we wouldn’t be getting. I know, I know… everyone said “welcome to the world of no sleep” and “catch up now (before the birth)” etc… and I said “I don’t need much sleep.” And that’s STILL correct. BUT, not THIS kind of sleep. It’s like someone standing next to you all day ready to poke you as soon as you feel the slightest bit comfortable. Not that HE is annoying, but even when he’s asleep, you think “what was THAT noise?!” ”Is he still breathing?!” ”Why does he KEEP GETTING THE HICCUPS!”
Speaking of firsts, and hiccups… here’s Wesley’s first hiccups:
