Watson at 2 weeks

Watson is 2 weeks old today. 14 days have gone by so fast! He already seems so much bigger and different from when we brought him home from the hospital. He is a SWEET baby and we love having him home with us!

So far he is a good eater and sleeper (fingers crossed.) He eats about every 3 hours during the day and it takes him about an hour each time. He is a champion eater-check out those cheeks- and then he's pretty content until the next mealtime.

Sleeping-some days he is awake most of the day and other days he sleeps all day. Either way is fine w/me b/c he's pretty good even when he's awake. At night I feed him for the last time around 8:30 or so and then he wakes up usually around 1 or 1:30 and then between 4 and 5. So far this schedule is like a dream compared to Hayes' newborn days! She was up every hour or 2 at least when she was a newborn so anything is better than that! With Hayes I always stayed up until 10 to do the last feeding, but oh no not this time. I cannot keep my eyes open that late so I'm not even attempting to do that to myself. He is still sleeping in the boppy in the cradle in our room and he likes it. We like him being in there b/c we like his sound machine. I think Nathan and I will have to get one for ourselves once he moves to his room. He's taken a few long naps in his crib in the afternoons this week and has done great being in there. Wednesday was the best afternoon b/c I had both him and Hayes napping at the same time. And it lasted about 3 hours-so NICE!! I don't know how often that will happen but it was the best feeling to know they were both tucked in and sleeping soundly.

Hayes loves him. She constantly says "hey baby Watson" and likes to tell him what she is doing at the moment..."I'm eating baby Watson," "I'm doing puzzles baby Watson." It's so cute. He has also been the recipient of several pokes and jabs to the face/eyes/ears b/c she loves to point out his body parts to him. She just loves to touch him and I can't blame her. He's super sweet and super kissable so he's pretty hard to resist!
Enjoy the weekend!

These are the cutest, most adorable new pics, Amy! I can't believe Watson is 2 weeks old already! You're doing a great job with him! He's obviously very happy and content with his little life! Love his chubby cheeks! Love you, Alyssa
