Kyle's 2 week birthday update

Kyle had his 2 week checkup yesterday, and amazingly he has put on almost a pound and half in the last 9 days, to weigh in at a colossal 10lbs and 11 oz! He is outgrowing everything we have, from clothes, to swaddles, to bottles. It has been quite an adventure having a baby that weighs the same at 2 weeks as your other child did at 2 months but we're getting used to it!

This week has been quite difficult, as we struggled with breastfeeding and sleeping. But the pediatrician had some great ideas on how we can get the sleeping down, and the switch to formula is getting better as the week progresses.

On Wednesday Erin and Sonia took the long drive up to come and visit, which was great. It's so nice to have someone other than John or a medical professional to talk to! Sonia has just celebrated her first birthday (which was also Kyle's official due date!), and it reminded me of how quickly they grow up. It's been a long time since I did all of this with Kiki, so being around a one year old is good practice! Sonia is so well-behaved, I love spending time with her. She was smiling and goofing around for all the other customers while we were at lunch, it was a lot of fun. I'm hoping to post some photos this weekend from their visit so check back later.

I also got my driving privileges back yesterday which has been awesome! I have had to make sure I didn't get too ahead of myself and overdo it, just sticking to the supermarket and a quick run to Babies R Us today.

My flip video camera came this week so hopefully I will be able to get some video to post in the next few days too.
