One Week

Yesterday was Mason's one week birthday. Can't believe it's already been one week since he came into our lives. He's already changed so much since that first time I held him on my chest for our first "skin to skin" interaction.

He's already had 2 doctor visits for weight checks in one short week. He had dropped from 7 pounds and 6 ounces at delivery, to 6 pounds 13 ounces on Monday, and then went to a whopping 7 pounds 7 ounces yesterday. The man is definitely eating more and thankfully putting on the pounds.

Talking about pounds ... I've been losing those 30-35 pounds I gained during pregnancy. Other than walking that one morning I haven't done anything else other than breast feed and eat somewhat healthier than I was during the last week or so of pregnancy. I'm down to about 11 pounds left to lose for pre-baby weight.

We've also had a slight improvement of sleeping/feeding through the night. Instead of waking up every 30-60 minutes to feed, diaper change, and basically soothe, we've just had our first 3 hour long break. Yay to getting 3 hours of sleep for dad and I. Hopefully it wasn't a fluke and will be somewhat of a pattern soon.

It's been great having my parents in town this past week to help with everything. Not sure how I'll do it by myself once they leave and Ryan starts traveling again for work. I guess we shall see what happens when that time comes.
