Jakson at three weeks~

He is not the biggest fan of bath time!

I can't believe that my little baby is already three weeks old. I am trying to savor every moment with him and just enjoy every second I get to be with him.

Life has been pretty great since we got out of the hospital. When we got out he weighed 5 pounds and 2 ounces. At his one week he was up to 5 pounds and 4 ounces. Then at his two week he was 5 pounds and 6 ounces, which is soo close to his birth weight, BUT we had to see a different doctor because Josh had something to do at work so we had rescheduled. Lesson #1, don't switch doctors. She freaked out and told me that Jakson isn't gaining weight like he should and I should start doing every other feed with 2 ounces of formula and just pump after that feed. And I should be feeding like this every TWO hours. Holy cow, yeah right. He could barely get two ounces down and was stuffed FULL and could not eat every two hours. I was so stressed. She had also added that if he doesn't start gaining a ton of weight that it will affect his brain development. Thanks for scaring the crap out of a first time mom lady! So the next day I made an appointment with our doctor that we had loved. Like I had thought, he agreed with me. Jakson is just a little guy and will grow at his own's not like Josh and I are huge people. Plus, he was getting enough milk by breastfeeding- that was obvious from his diapers. So needless to say he put me back on my regular schedule. That made me a happy momma. We went back Wednesday because he had to get a blood test re-done :( and he was up to 5 pounds and 15 ounces...woohoooo! He is growing :]

We go back on Thursday of next week to get weighed again...

Now feedings are going great, he eats like a champ. I am so happy because one of my biggest fears about being a mom was not being able to breastfeed but the Lord showed me that it was a stupid fear.

He is sleeping pretty great at night. We usually get him down about 12 or so...and sometimes don't hear from him until about 4 or 5 in the morning. Even though I am pretty bad about putting him in the bed with me. Ooops. I just love snuggling with him and seeing his little face right next to me! Oh well, he is mine and I can do what I want. Haha...

We have a pretty busy weekend. We get to see Santa tomorrow. Actually, we get to have cocoa with Santa and all of his cousins! I will enjoy this trip a little more than him right now, but one day he will love it. I have had some issues finding a newborn christmas outfit. Looks like he won't be wearing the cutest outfit in the world but what I got will work I guess!
Then on Saturday we get to make gingerbread houses with the pair girls and my sisters and sister-in-law, tonya. Josh will be off hunting with my brother this weekend so my sister-in-law and her kids are keeping me and Jakson company. Then on Sunday some of my girl friends are celebrating Christmas so I am hoping that Jakson and I will get to go to that so that they can all see him. I don't like getting him in huge crowds right now bc I am afraid of people getting their swine flu germs all over my precious baby. So this is at one of the girls houses..with just a few girls. So that's ok :)

Thats all of my updates for now.
Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
