3 Weeks

Brooks had his two week check-up on Wednesday, even though Friday he was three weeks old. We were happy to hear that he has been growing beautifully. He is now 20 inches long and weighs 8 lbs. 6 oz. - that's about two pounds in two weeks! He's starting to fill out and I LOVE it!!!! He's been more alert recently during the day. And nights vary now, sometimes sleeping only two hours between feedings and other times four! Every night I pray for the four hour breaks!!

Everyone still absolutely loves him. The only time Brynn struggles is when she is getting sleepy and wants me to hold her. But I don't think that's too bad!
I can vividly remember when Austin was 3 weeks old. A friend of ours said, "He's three weeks old already?" And I thought, What do you mean already? It's more like he's FINALLY three weeks old!
Time seems to be flying with Brooks, however. I can't believe he's already three weeks!

What a kid - he IS growing so fast. I love when they start to show their personality. Glad to hear he gives you a few good hours of sleep at night - it's amazing how precious sleep becomes!
He's a cutie!
