Hunter is 2 weeks old and has just experienced some firsts.
While we have kept Hunter clean by sponge bath, his cord finally came off and he had his first real bath. Hailey was a big helper and loved helping me with the bath! Hunter was quiet for about a minute and then decided he had had enough!
He still wasn’t very happy after his bath
Finally in his pajamas he was a happy baby.
Rich also put Hailey’s old swing together and Hunter really enjoyed it.
Hunter had his 2 week doctors appointment too. He is up to 9lbs 4oz (55th percentile) and is 21.5 inches long (75th percentile). The doctor commented on how strong his neck is. She said he must have been born looking around the room- which he was! At one day old he was holding his head up trying to get a look to see what was going on. She also commented that he seemed very content to just look around the room and to just observe. So far Hunter does seem to be a very content baby. He loves to quietly look around and just study things. As far as sleep our first few nights at home were rough and we had a couple of rough nights this week. But for the most part at night, Hunter sleeps about 2 1/2 hours, wakes up to eat and goes back to sleep for another 2 1/2 hour stretch. During the day he takes a few long naps, wakes up in between to eat and do a little interacting with us. He stays awake for about 1-2 hours at a time, although sometimes he stretches it out a bit longer. He rarely cries unless he is hungry or tired. We are so thankful for our little man cub!!
