Our Little Piglet...

Brady had his 2 week appointment today. He's already up to 10 lbs 2 oz! Apparently mamma makes some very nourishing breastmilk! He's also grown an inch...up to 22 in. Everything is looking good! I am finally starting to feel (somewhat) like myself again...minus enough sleep. He likes to eat about every 2-2.5 hours, and usually for about 45 min at a time. That doesn't leave much free time for me to rest! I feel like breastfeeding is finally going really well. Today is the first day Brady didn't throw any tantrums at meal time and all of our feedings were very easy. I actually found myself truly starting to enjoy the bonding time, instead of being stressed out by his fussiness.

I wanted to say Thank You to my wonderful mother who came to stay with us for nearly 2 weeks and help while we got adjusted to life at home with a newborn. It was great to have you here mom! She cooked and cleaned for us and watched the little one so we could get some sleep! We miss having you here!

Also, Rob created a Picasa Web Album where we will be uploading new pics on a more regular basis (it takes way too long to upload them all to the blog). Here is the link...check back often!

Rob, Audrey, & Brady

Glad to see that you guys are adjusting well. Those 1st few weeks with a newborn are always tough.

Congrats Audrey! It was so great to hear from you! I can't believe we had our little ones so close together. Isn't being a mom the greatest? I can't imagine life without her. You look so happy in your pics and your little man is the cutest! Congrats again- we definitely need to keep in touch. xoxo Sarah
