Sebastian at Two Weeks

Little boy is already two weeks! This last week went fast since we had a few appointments at the beginning of the week and have just been busy.

Saturday my mom and I went to our baptism class which is required for Sebastian to get baptised next month. People couldn't believe he was only 8 days old. One mom thought he was a month. Umm no, he's just a big boy. He did great during the two hour class and slept most of the time after eating briefly. I had to change him before we left and he ended up peeing all over the table. I thought for sure Alex would love that.

Sunday Alex and I ran some errands with Sebastian and he had his first restaurant experience. He slept through most of it though I did have to change him on his changing pad on the bathroom floor (no counters or chairs). He screamed bloody murder and I'm sure patrons thought I was torturing my baby. Poor little guy.

It must have been baby day at the restaurant because there were two other babies there. One couple sat next to us with their daughter in her carrier/stroller the whole time. She looked super small so I asked the mom how old she was. She was two months. Holy Moly! Sebastian was double her size.



Monday we visited a lactation consultant so I could get some help with Sebastian's latch. He doesn't open his mouth very wide so he kills me. The LC does this cool thing where she weighs the babies before they eat and then afterwards to get an idea of how much they eat. Sebastian ate 3oz out of one boob in about 30 min. Craziness. Like I've said, he loves boobs.

Next we went to Sebastian's first pediatrician appointment. Everything looked great though we do need to keep an eye on one of his testicles since it hadn't descended yet. He weighed 9 lbs 6 oz which is awesome for him being 10 days old at the time. Our pedi is really awesome. I wish we could take him to Canada with us.

Afterwards we visited my Grammy so she could see Sebastian for the first time. She was so excited to see and hold him. It really was the sweetest thing. I'm sad that she won't be able to see him very much so these visits we are able to have are all the more special.




Thursday we had my maternity shoot photographer come to the apartment to take newborn pictures of Sebastian. I can't wait to see the proofs. I think she got some awesome shots. As she said, he was a rock star and let her pose him in all sorts of poses.

I do have a little rock star and man, do I love him.
