2 weeks old (a few days late)...


my sweet ledger,

how in the world are you already 2 weeks old?! our time with you has flown, but at the same time it feels as if you've been with us forever. you have adapted so well, and are so easy going that you have made the transition from one baby to two super easy! i'm sure it may be a bit different once you become mobile! you have the sweetest spirit. we fall more in love with you each day!

since your third night home, you have only been waking once or twice during a twelve hour stretch. but the greatest thing is you go right back to sleep after you eat. it took your brother quite some time to figure that one out so we thank you!! you and your brother also take a 2-3 hour nap each afternoon...at the same time! i'm so grateful for the sleep you allow me and daddy to get. believe me, we don't take it for granted.

you are still wearing size newborn diapers, but we are on the last package then we are moving you up a size...one to many explosions! you can already wear 0-3 month clothes. your brother couldn't wear that size until he was 5 weeks old. i love my chunky monkey...or 'lil piggie. you love to eat! i can't wait to see how much you weigh.

this is how you spent your 2 week birthday...marathon christmas shopping with mommy! you were such a good little shopper. you slept in your seat pretty much the whole time. we took a couple of breaks to feed and change you in the van. you got tons of compliments from strangers. you helped people smile among all the craziness of shopping! you make us smile all the time! we love to kiss those kissable cheeks that are growing by the day.

getting a diaper change in the van...

we thank jesus for you each day. god has such a plan for you and wonderful timing! we already can't imagine our lives without you. i love you so much, baby boy! happy 2 week birthday!


love,
mommy

Kelli, I am so glad that Ledger is letting you sleep. His personality sounds so much like Haddie. She was laid back like that when she was born... and still for the most part.
What a huge blessing for you and Lane. what a sweet baby boy...

Kelli, I'm so happy things are going so well. I'm so jelous! Our house went into utter chaos from day one. Both boys are precious. Keep the updates coming. I always look forward to them.

He is so cute. I don't want him to be too big then I won't be able to hold for very long.
