First few weeks

The first few weeks are going smoother than I had imagined. Hunter is adapting very well to having a baby brother. We were nervous that he would not like Gage and/or we would have to keep a watchful eye on him around Gage. However, he has proved us wrong. He has been wonderful! He just now touched Gage for the first time last week. He will take diapers to the diaper genie for us, grab his pacifier, or anything that we ask for. He has acted out a little more at times but we were prepared for that. We figured it would have been worse than it is now but that doesn't mean it is not challenging at times. Gage still has his nights and days mixed up.. you can do anything in your power to wake this little one up and he couldn't care less. He actually sleeps better with noise. It seems like the louder the better. Once we are heading to bed his precious eyes open and he is wide awake. It is lovely! haha 
Matt and I are still very sleep deprived. Matt is camping out in Hunter's room right now so that he could possibly get a few more hours of sleep since he is working. That plan works out at times but sometimes when Gage wakes up so does Hunter. So one parent is tending to one while the other is tending to the other child. Life as a family of 4 has been great and I wouldn't trade it for the world!

Someone was not too fond of a bath. Actually he is not to fond of being without clothes period. In the past week he is getting better. He doesn't cry when I give him a bath or change his clothes, but he does hold on tight to my finger like "please don't let me go!"

 He is such a thinker. I told him he is going to have thinking wrinkles by the time he is 4. I need to get a picture if his normal true thinking face where his whole forehead is full of wrinkles. It is precious!
 First doctor's visit. When Gage was born he weighed 6lb 9oz and 19.5 inches long. By the time he left the hospital he weighed 6lb 3oz. At his first visit he weighed 6lb 2oz but was 19 3/4 inches long. He lost weight but was growing. Since he lost weight since the hospital we had to go back the next week to check his weight again. He was 6lb 4 oz and 20 inches long. I guess he isn't gaining as quickly because we have to go again this week to weigh him again. I am not as concerned right now because he is a happy and content baby. He eats when he is hungry and has plenty of normal diapers. Can't wait to see how much he has grown when we go back Wednesday.
