Connor is 1 week old. Hard to believe a week has gone by since he's been born. He has brought so much love and joy to our little family. I just look at his sweet face and my eyes can't help but well up with tears. He is truly a blessing. A special gift. We thank God every day for allowing us to be his parents.
At just a week old, Connor has reached his original birth weight and is doing really well. He wears 3 month clothes and size 1 diapers. He is slowly but surely getting on more of a schedule. He eats 4 ounces of formula every 3 to 4 hours (except when he cluster feeds somewhere between 10 pm to 3 am). He cries when he's really hungry or getting his diaper changed, but he seems content and pretty laid-back most of the time. Such a sweet, sweet baby.
We may be exhausted and crazy busy with life right now, but we wouldn't change a thing. We are better spouses, better parents and better siblings with Connor here.
Our lives are forever changed.
