We couldn't be any happier with our little guy :) And the love and support of our family and friends since his birth has been nothing short of phenomenal! God is soo good :)

We have been home for almost 5 days now and Blake is doing surprisingly well for a newborn. During the day he eats about every 2.5 hours, and at night he eats every 3-4 hours (the pediatrician just gave us the green light to spread the feedings to every 4 hours since his weight was almost back up to his birth weight, we were doing every 3 hours until a couple days ago). He hardly cries, unless he's hungry or something is really bothering him (tummy issues, etc.). He has been sleeping in his crib for the last couple of nights without any issues what-so-ever! David and I both are surprisingly rested :) We average 7-8 hours of sleep a night and I take an additional nap in the afternoon for about an hour or so between his feedings.


I will upload the pictures from my dad's camera that we took at the hospital and some of our visitors at home in the next few days. Most of my time is occupied with newborn laundry and slowly hobbling around the house from my c-section. Looking forward to being able to drive in another week. I'm starting to go a little stir crazy at home during the week when David is at work M-F from 2-midnight, so come visit us!!!

We have a rather eventful weekend... Blake will be attending his first wedding at 8 days old tomorrow (my father-in-law to his fabulous fiancee Lynette), I'm going to spend a couple hours with some friends on Saturday night at her bachelorette party while David watches him at home (I'm secretly freaking out inside about leaving him alone with him, but I'm sure he will be fine!), and then we plan on bringing him to church with us on Sunday. Hope all three of these outings go well :)

Have a great weekend!
