2 week checkup

{only a week late}
We went to the doctor on Tuesday afternoon for little baby's two week checkup. Everything looked good, sounded good and big boy has grown an inch and not only gained his birth weight back, but an extra pound on top!  He now weighs 9 pounds 4 ounces and measures 21 inches.  While we were waiting on the doctor, he was so fascinated with the lights.
So far, things are going pretty good.  He sleeps really well at night and only wakes me up twice to feed him.  Luckily, I seem to be getting sleep, which was not expected.  Everyone tells us that we will pay our dues at some point. 
During the day he definitely keeps me busy making up for not eating over night.  He eats every 2-3 hours during the day.  I nurse him for 15 minutes on each side and once you add in burping and changing him since he poops every time I feed him, I end up nursing about every other hour.  That gives me an hour window at a time to get any and everything done.  I try my best to get it all done but some things (like showering) somehow don't happen (like for the entire week). Oh well.  
I have been super busy this week, running around trying to get ready to go out of town on Saturday. One of my best friends is getting married in Savannah and we are so excited to take the little one on his first trip!  We are only staying for one night so hopefully everything will go well.  For those that don't know, Loyal and I got engaged in Savannah and haven't been back since.  Can't wait to visit that special spot again, except this time we'll have the sweet little babe with us!
Side note: Before we left for Savannah, I remember picking the perfect red nail polish "just in case" we got engaged.  I just realized that I coincidentally chose the same color red for my nails this time.  Brings back memories. :)
