Two Weeks Old!

 Benjamin is 2 weeks old today!  How crazy is that? It simultaneously seems like we have had him forever and like we just got home. He is the cutest baby ever, though I may be biased, and he is growing so fast. We already have one newborn outfit that he wore his second day home and then when we put it on him a day or two ago he hardly could stretch his legs in it. We weighed him on Monday and he is up to 8lbs15oz - that is 9 oz weight gain in 6 days! What a big growing boy. He still eats like a champ, too often for my liking but we are working on having better feedings with more time in between... I will let you know how that goes. He has a lot of head control! Its crazy how much he can hold his head up sometimes. We go through a lot of diapers and almost as many outfits. He has a lovely habit (which I had heard of with boys), of peeing as soon as we get his diaper off. Fun stuff. His umbilical cord fell off on Saturday night and he had his first bath yesterday. He actually seemed to like the warm water!! I will try to post the videos from that bath on google+ . That is all I can think of to update you on... did I mention is is adorable?
