Week 1

It has been a great first week of parenthood. I am shocked and pleasantly surprised. Elliot is really proving to be such a good baby. He is eating well and sleeping for 3-4 hours at a time. We call him our Hungry Hungry Hippo. At first we were worried about him not gaining enough weight– then he gained 10 oz. in two days. Needless to say, we are no longer concerned. It’s nice. I’m hoping that this kind of schedule keeps up. He doesn’t cry unless he’s hungry. It’s amazing.

Andy has been an awesome dad. He loves to snuggle up with the little man. He changes diapers, gets up at night to feed him, and has already given two baths. He’s a pro.

My friend, Cyndi, asked us if we ever thought we could love anyone so much… and honestly… I never thought I could. We’re pretty excited to see what each day will bring with him.

Here’s to another great week!
