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!!!!

Oh Courtney, HE's SO GORGEOUS...welcome to the world of your heart living outside of your body! Now you know, you would kill, steal and what have you...for these little ones. I'm so happy to call you a fellow mother and of a boy to boot! I'll be in FTW this week...but no pressure, I'd like to see this little guy and HIS MOMMY!
