Our first week!

We have survived our first week with two children! :) It has been an interesting transition, but we have really enjoyed spending time as a family of four this week and loving on each other. Micah took a week of vacation, so he got to be here with us 24/7....that was a lot of fun! Landry loved having the extra attention, and I loved being able to focus on 10 things at a time instead of 20. Ha! Really, our midwife suggested that I not walk up and down the stairs (and definitely not carry Landry up to her room) for two weeks, so it was almost not an option that he stayed home. The grandmothers have been here helping some, and will be helping next week as Micah goes back to work.
This week, Collier has been doing a lot of sleeping, eating, pooping...all the normal stuff! We went to the doctor when he was 4 days old, and he had already gained almost 4 ounces. The doctor said he was really impressed that he was even back up to his birth weight because most babies aren't at that point. Let me tell you, this boy is an eater!!

We have also been focusing a lot on making Landry feel like Collier is her special baby. Each morning when she gets up, Micah gets her milk and brings her in to our bed. The first several mornings, she would just stare at Collier and have a look like, "what is HE still doing here??" She is really starting to warm up to him though, and loves holding him, kissing him, and tickling his toes. She is going to be a sweet big sister!

Collier doesn't know what to think here of his wild big sister! :)

Loving this crazy phase in our lives, and loving these two amazing blessings! Hopefully I will be back to blogging full swing over the next few days....we have lots to catch up on!
