One week later.

So it's been a week since our little guy was born, or little man as Daddy likes to call him. And what a week it's been!

Nothing anyone says can prepare you for the way life instantly changes once a baby is part of that life! I knew it was coming but there was really no way to prepare...because middle of the night trips to the bathroom are nothing compared to the crying of a newborn and not having a clue as to why he is crying! I hope eventually I will know the hungry cry versus the dirty diaper cry versus the gas cry. Right now I am just going through the motions of things and asking Hubby what he thinks. Which is rather comical, cause both of us have no clue.

Today Spencer is exactly one week old and had his first pediatrician visit, where everything was good. And we actually found out that he is 20.5 inches and not the 19.5 they said at the hospital! Woot-woot, Daddy says we will make him a b-ball player yet! He has also gained back the two ounces he lost and put on another two! Yay for breast milk.

And finally...a few pictures of our little man:
