2 Weeks and Then Some....

So I know this is a little late but Michael's 2 week appointment went very well. He weighed 9lbs. up from 8lbs. when we left the hospital. He is 22 inches long and is in the 90th percentile for height and 50th percentile for weight. At his next appointment (1 month) he will get the second hepatitis shot and then we will go back at 2 months for the bigger round of shots.

Having Ryan's mom here to help us this past week has been amazing! The extra hands to help are greatly appreciated and we will miss her help when she leaves.

Michael is doing well and we have started him on a schedule that seems to be working out so far for all of us. I have been taking tips from the book Babywise and have him on a three hour schedule. He eats and then has a little bit of "awake time" and then goes down for a nap the last 1 1/2 to 1 hour of the the three hour cycle. Hopefully if things continue to go well we have a little boy that can sleep through the night in a few weeks :) We have been doing more tummy time with Michael and he is already starting to hold his head up....granted it is only for a second but it is exciting to see him growing and learning!

I just made Michael's appointment to be circumcised on Monday, June 14th. The surgeon was not available while he was in the hospital so we had to make an outpatient appointment. I am a little nervous for him and hope he recovers quickly! We are also excited to see Tara and Paul next weekend when they will be in Fort Worth for a wedding and can't wait to go to Chicago to celebrate Mike and Heather's wedding! June is a busy month for the Andrade family!
