Sweet Baby Tate is 2 Weeks Old!

Wow, two weeks old already!  Is it only 2 weeks?  Part of me feels like it’s been longer than 2 weeks since we’ve gone to the hospital to be induced and have our little Tate. 

It’s amazing how much babies change in such short amounts of time.  In 2 weeks time:

  • Tate has really packed on the pounds, you can see him filling out even more than he was when he was born. 
  • His face is stretching out now, not nearly as round as when he entered the world
  • He stays awake for about an hour at a time after 3 or 4 of his daytime feedings
  • He can hold his head up very well when he lays chest to chest with you
  • He is very alert when awake, taking in all the different sights and sounds
  • He nurses for about 15 minutes total now, usually 10 minutes on one side and 5 on the other
  • He is awake every 4 hours at night, which equals being up only 2 times a night
  • He is still a very content little baby
  • He ‘recognizes’ me when I pick him up when he’s crying, he settles right down as soon as I put him up to my neck – “his spot”
  • He makes all kinds of cute little noises when he’s awake and asleep.  My favorite is when he “ah ha’s”, sounds like a laugh to me
  • He sleeps either swaddled up with his arms tucked in and hands out by his face at night, or during the day with his arms out to the sides up by his head

Tate has brought so much joy to our family already, and he’s only 2 weeks old!  I love listening to Brennan ‘baby talk’ with him, it totally melts my heart.  “Oh hi there Tate, you little Monkey Pie!”  Swoon!  Aiden is such a good helper, and he loves holding Tate and just gazing at him.  These boys, they are so great!  I am a lucky Mommy!
