2 weeks

Dear Harrison,

You are two weeks old today.

Since my last post you have peed on me several times.  You actually peed a puddle onto the kitchen chair when I was holding you the other night.  You always seem to do this right after I change you and get you in a new outfit.  We have had a only one incident that was close to the Riding in Cars with Boys moment but I keep my mouth closed just in case.  ~  You are trying to hold your head up like a champ.  ~  You have almost found your thumb.  ~  You are eating 2 1/2 ounces now but not at every feeding.  ~  You want to try and hold your bottle.  You are so strong.

You went on your first stroller ride this week.  You stayed awake the entire time and just took in your surroundings.  ~  I got brave and tried the booger sucker.  You were not a fan but it will make you breathe easier so I will continue to use it.  ~  You have seemed a little gassy so we called Dr. QT and asked about giving you some gas relief drops.  He gave the ok and I think they might be helping.  I know many moms that swear by these drops.  ~  Your umbilical cord numb is still attached but hopefully will be gone soon as I am ready to give you your first bath.

I took my first trip out this week when you were 12 days old.  I had a pedicure with Aunt BK and ran a few errands.  I was only gone 3 hours.  I missed you but I was proud of myself for not crying being away from you.  Maybe it helped knowing you were home with your Dad as he takes great care of you.  You two are already big buddies.  ~  We gave you some air out time to help with your diaper rash.  You peed 4 times...twice on your Dad.  We just laughed and laughed.  You seemed to really enjoy it.

You give huge grins as you are drifting off to sleep.  I hold on just a few more minutes to you in the wee hours of the morning to get one more grin...

I love you little man.
