2 week appointment

We went to the pediatrician yesterday for Hampton's 2 week appointment (2 weeks! already?!), and he is doing well! He is now 7 lbs (25%) and 20.5 inches (50%). He's growing like a weed! Breastfeeding is going much better, but I was worried that he wasn't getting enough food. The doc said it looked like he was doing just fine, though. He does have what we are treating as an infection in his right eye. It has been mucousy and gunky for a few days, so we were given a prescription for eye "drops" (really a gel-like medicine that we have to put on a q-tip and rub on his lower lid...poor baby). After 4 or 5 days, if his eye doesn't look any better, we can rule out an infection and assume it is a clogged tear duct, but Dr. H wanted to treat him for an infection first--just in case.

All in all, things are going well. It's been pretty much a blur b/c we haven't done much of anything. We had a few rainy days here, and I found myself sitting on the sofa snuggling with the monkey all day. I'm in shock how quickly the days pass, but when your schedule consists of feeding every 2 hours, it's hard to fit much else in. We did get out today and visited my old co-workers. I feel like I have much more energy tonight, so I'm going to make it a point to try and get out every day that we can now that I'm getting a little more used to everything. The weather here is still pretty warm, so I'm hoping to get some walks in before it gets to be too cool.

We took some pictures for our announcements the other day, and I have to share. Can you handle the sweetness?!?! I'm so in love!!
