Week 1

Our baby is (almost) 1 week old!! He is seriously the best baby I have ever seen.  He is so sweet and such a great sleeper!!  I have gotten about 1000x more sleep with my newborn than during the vast majority of pregnancy.  Last night, for example, he ate at 8 and fell asleep until 1:30am, immediately fell back asleep and slept until 5:30, ate and fell back asleep until 9:30!  Amazing!  It is not a fluke-  he does similar patterns every night!  

When he is awake, he is very content.  He only cries when he is hungry and/or during his sponge bath.  Not a fan of those... 

Mom and I took Beau to the pediatrician on Monday for a weight check.  He was 8 lb 1 oz when discharged from the hospital on Saturday and had already gained back 2 oz. by his Monday morning appointment!  Kid likes to eat! 

With the exception of a sticker to his hair,  big brothers have been great with him, too.  They have been surprisingly gentle and loving.  They love to kiss his cheek, rub his head and give him toys when he is swinging.  Charlie has yet to hold him, but Trey loves it!  

Upon first meeting, baby Beau gave his brothers a little present... Superhero costumes!  Trey LOVES batman and Charlie LOVES superman!  They were very excited about their new costumes.  Trey even wore his to Publix with Grandmom and Grandad.  Apparently, it was a big hit with the customers/cashiers and, of course, he ate up all of the attention.  :) 

We have yet to get our first "family of 5" picture, but hope to get one sometime this week!
