Aiden: 3 weeks old

A.J. is 3 weeks old!
3 weeks old already.  when you have a newborn, time doesn't make sense. i never know what day/date it is. i barely know what time it is (thank GAWD for cellphones jk). but really, having a new itty bitty living human baby to care for is amazing/hard/tiring (exhausting)/fun/hard (did i already say that?)/crazy/surreal...

Things that we have learned/accomplished this week are:

  • All that chanting and singing "no more more rubin" has helped, his numbers are low enough to NOT have to go to the docs every other day.  ::WOOT WOOT::
    • we do have to monitor his yellow-ness though (I though asian babies were supposed to be yellow...haha? too soon?)
  • Mommy learned how to wear the baby sling and boy does it make life a little bit easier (like right now for instance, i am able to photo edit and blog bc he is shnuggled into my chest with my awesome sleepy wrap)
  • Weight is up to 9 lbs 12.5 ounces
  • We are back to breastfeeding 98% of the time (he gets a breast-milk bottle occasionally when momma is away)
  • We learned how to nurse in the side-lying position (this helps us both get some major cuddle time in and some extra ZZZs)
  • Daddy's been back at work so we try to let him sleep a 5+ hour stretch at night time (he still has to change at least 1 diaper, to keep it real in the Wenger household).
  • We came up with a few new 'poopie' songs
    • "push it out, push it out, get that poopie poopie out!"
    • "poop de doop, poop de doop de doop de doop" (like that one song...haha)

Here are some awesome pics from this past week!
