2 weeks

Timmy is a little over 2 weeks now. We sure love him! He is a very mellow/calm baby. He only ever cries to let me know he's hungry, and even that cry isn't much. He did have a bit of trouble with jaundice and weight loss when I brought him home, so I had to take him back to the hospital to have him put under the lights. After a couple of days under the lights, his bilirubin went back down and we were able to bring him home. His weight did drop a whole lb during that time. At birth he was 7lbs 15oz and when we left the hospital from having him put under the lights, he was at 7lbs 1oz. As of this morning, his weight is back up to 7 lbs 11.5 ounces. So all is well. I am strictly breast feeding him, so that makes me feel good.

Last weekend I took a few newborn pictures of him. Trying to savor this short time. I nursed him and had him all calm and sleeping... until I took the diaper off. Then he was awake the rest of the time. He pee'd on my bed twice and had a little hershey squirt on a blanket once. So, thankfully I got a couple of keepers in all the mess. :)

This one is my absolute favorite. Captured his personality perfectly.

This one I took of him wrapped in the beautiful blanket that my sister Lynlee made for him. I love love love the blanket. Must take a better picture of it to show.

This is a popular position with my kids. Aubri had her legs like this during her first few weeks of life as well. It's pretty cute.

Aubri truly has adjusted well. She has definitely had some whining moments, but she is always wanting to help with her baby brother. She likes to give him mooches and asks to hold him alot. She is very curious about the breast feeding though. Yesterday she lifted up her shirt and placed her doll on her chest and said she was feeding her baby too. I got a good laugh out of it. She has also tapped on my stomach and told me she had another baby brother in there. *sigh* :(

Anyway, I thought the below picture was too cute not to share. Aubri had on her grandma Jones' glasses and sitting on our couch trying to act like a grown up.

  2. He is truly a sweet baby. We love you guys!

  3. Nicole, you are such a talented photographer! Timmy is such an adorable sweetheart! I just want to hold him and watch his sweet little expressions from seeing the pictures. What a wonderful time of life to watch.

  4. Great pix! Timmy is so cute!

  5. Those are awesome pictures! I LOVE that first one in the series with his lip all pouted out. He sure looks a lot like Tim, huh? I'm glad Aubri is adjusting well. If it makes you feel any better, both Aspen and Mia went around "feeding" their toys for about a month. And now Mia scolds him and says "don't bite mommy!" ha. :) He's adorable. :) I hope we can meet him sometime.
