Hello my lovely readers. Hope all has been well and that those of you in the US had a fantastic Thanksgiving week-end.
As the entire family that is over the age of 4 years old hangs out in the basement I thought I would come give you all an update. Little Brother is currently fast asleep upstairs and we are getting good use of our video monitor we bought. I seriously love this thing.
Anyways….. Little Brother had his 4 week check-up last Thursday. He weighed in at 10 pounds. I could not believe it, though I guess that explains why the newborn sleepers and some of the 0-3 month sleepers are no longer fitting him.
4 Weeks Old
He is obviously eating like a champ. Sleep is still hit and miss. He really does like to keep daddy up to party all night long. The other night I took the night shift and he actually slept all night. Well from 1am – 6am which any parent can tell you is called all night in the world of babies. Sadly mommy didn’t sleep. Starting at 2am I kept expecting him to wake up to eat. So every little noise he made I went running to the kitchen to put the kettle on. Finally around 4am I fell asleep.
We are into our routine though and everyone is doing well. Just don’t mind the stupid look on our face if you ask us what day it is. We only know if it’s a weekday or week-end based on if Big Brother went to school that day or not.
Speaking of Big Brother. He is as always amazing and doing well. Still loves being a big brother and still singing songs to Little Brother. If Little Brother starts crying he will come tell us one of two things, that the baby is hungry or that the baby needs his diaper changed. He doesn’t know which one but he does know the baby needs something.
Nothing else exciting to report in our world. Getting ready for Christmas and I am almost done my shopping. I got the kids done just need to buy for our parents and Tobei’s brother. My birthday is coming up in a few weeks and we are going to a comedy club. Should be fun.
