Elliott's first post!

Sorry it has taken so long to get this up and going since Elliott's arrival. . . turns out he's somewhat of a demanding little fellow. ;)

Our world has changed so dramatically that I don't even know where to begin!  The first two weeks were pretty much a blur, but life is evening out and we have somewhat of a routine.  Now, this is not to say that things don't change form day-to-day, but at least now I know that Elliott eats consistently every 2-3 hours  and will wake up 2-3 times a night.  I was especially grateful last night for a 4 hour stretch of sleep, as many of you know that I have always needed my beauty sleep to function well.  

Elliott took a while to get back to his birth weight, which was 7 pounds, 8 ounces and at his 2-week appointment the doctor put us on a modified feeding plan with breastfeeding and formula feeding.  It was a success, as at his 3-week appointment he weighed 7 pounds, 13 3/4 ounces!!!!
