2 week appointment

Porter had his 2 week doctor's appointment yesterday, and he is doing so well! We were hoping for his weight to be up to 7 lbs. 9.5 oz. (that would be one ounce a day, which is considered healthy) and he was up to 7 lbs. 14.5 oz.! Yeah! It made us so happy to know that he is getting enough food and thriving! His checkup went really well and his pediatrician is so happy with his progress. He is in the 25th percentile for weight, 25th for head circumference, and 75th for height! Craig is thrilled with that! We LOVE his pediatrician so much...she always makes us feel like wonderful parents and she takes her time with us with every little thing we want to chat about. The other "eventful" thing that happened is that his cord stump fell off on his 2 week birthday, too! It is amazing what you get excited about as a parent! :)
Okay, I know we have posted a lot of pictures... but I just can't help it! I'm a little obsessed with taking pictures of my little man. You should see how many we have on the computer! These are a few taken when he was having his nightly tummy time. He actually really loves it, and usually he finds his thumb...wonder if he'll be a thumb-sucker for very long?
Picking up my head! (notice the adorbale taggie lovey that my friend Jessica gave him in the background! Love it!)
Found his thumb!
Tummy time with Daddy. Guess who's taking most of the pictures? :)
Sleepy head! I LOVE this outfit...I've had it for about 3 years and I've saved it for my little one! He wore this home from the hospital. I know I'm crazy, but I have the same one in pink so that his future sister(s) can wear that home from the hospital, too! Nana thinks it looks like it came right out of Who-ville. Silly Nana.
My first walk. Daddy takes me for a walk every day when he gets home from work.
Okay...I SWEAR he rolled over right after this! His little arm was stuck under him, so he had a little help, but he did it three times, and I have witnesses! We have a video, but I haven't figured out how to post one yet.....okay, I haven't tried. Genius, huh?! Thanks for letting me be a crazy new mom and listening to me be thrilled about every single thing that happens to our little guy. We are just so in love, and I now understand why everyone says "It's SOOO different when you have your own!" That is the truest statement I have ever heard!

Love the pics! He is so handsom! You're going to be such a experienced mom taking care of 3 kids already!
All you have to do to make your list of blogs update is to add it as a page element. SO, Go customize, add page element over where your list of blogs are, and click on blog list" I think it's the first pg element and it says "new" beside it. Then you have to put in everyone's blog address and name the blog again. It will ask if you want the list in alphabetical order or by who updated most recently. Call me w/ questions!

OMG he is the cutest ever and I am so glad that he is doing so well.Can't believe how much he has changed and I agree, I love the outfit.

Good job Craig - taking my Littlest Buddy for a walk sounds like just what Granny would do - he will be my hiking Buddy one day!

Miss you all.

Thanks for posting all the pictures. He is absolutely adorable! I'm glad to hear he's nursing well and seems to behave himself. :) I'm so happy for you to finally be a mom, I know you've wanted to for forever. I don't know if you remember, but Grant has a little outfit like Porters, but it's green, that you got for him too. I wish I could be there to hold him! Maybe someday we'll make it back down to good old Florida. Love you! Kiss Porter for me! And keep the pictures coming!

So sorry for all the posts - did not think it had gone through as I had problems with my password. Oops!

One day I will get the hang of all this modern technology - don't hold your breath though.
