1 Week Old

Can you really use the word "old" with someone so new?

One week ago today, we went to the hospital not know what to expect. And we were right.

Everything about Jude so far is different than Mia.

From the bedrest to the quick labor and delivery to the almost immediate discharge (we only spent one night in the hospital).

But there are more. Jude is already proving to be much more laid back than Mia. But while he fusses less and sleeps better, Mia nursed with much less issues.

At his 5 day check up he was down to 5 pounds 13 ounces and so we kept having to go back to the doctor every day for a weight check. The milk flow is too much for his immature system to handle. He has latching issues. And so on and so on...

He's a little small now, but we have no doubt he will catch up in due time.

(Note how absolutely loose his little newborn socks hang on his ankles!)
