Locke's First Week

Today is Locke's 1 week birthday.  So far, he has been an exceptional baby!  Locke is a very good eater and nurses every 2 hours or so -- just as expected.  He sleeps pretty well at night, extending his nursing breaks to 3 or 4 hours (and sometimes longer!) which allows Mommy to get some much-needed sleep.  He has these long skinny fingers and toes and dark hazelish eyes.  He has adorable chubby little cheeks and moves his head around a lot, so Daddy has nicknamed him "Cheeks McWhiplash".  Today he had his one week check-up and Dr. Bridge thinks he is looking good.  He weighed in at 8 lbs 4 oz, which means that he is starting to gain weight now that my milk has come in.

Locke has to keep up with his big brother, who says that Locke is "our baby".  Ledger really seems to love his baby but is definitely starting to act-out for attention, which is really out-of-the-norm for him.  We hope that some normalcy will start to return to our family soon.

Finally, we're a family of FOUR!

 Locke's first week of life has been very busy.  Since we got out of the hospital on Thursday morning, we have welcomed a lot of visitors. Which means there has been a lot of extra arms to hold our sweet little baby.  Here are a few pictures of all our family visiting Locke!
