Video Sunday

27 Sep

Whoops, almost forgot what day it was…

Sorry this isn’t well focused. Peter finally showed me that there is a “close up” setting on the camera. That should help.

FAQs/A typical journey out

18 Sep

How old is your baby?

Six weeks.

Oh my goodness, he’s so little!

Yes.

Was he premature?

Yes, five weeks.

How much did he weigh when he was born?

3 pounds, 4 ounces.

Oh wow. Did he have to stay at the hospital?

Yes, for two and a half weeks.

But he’s doing okay now?

Yes, he’s doing great.

I had a aunt/cousin/sister who had a preemie.

Oh.

He’s just so little!

Yes.

Lather, rinse, repeat.

Due Date

12 Sep

Today is Sam’s official “due date” — which will be the point from which the pediatrician measures his development of motor skills, cognitive ability, etc. for about a year or so. So while he’s been with us for 5 weeks, his official “adjusted age” is 1 day.

It’s hard to believe that in 5 weeks we went from this:

to this:

All it took was many many trips to Meriter, a dozen or so virtually sleepless nights, and a little bit of adventure (in the form of ‘let’s take the baby to State Street/Barriques/Dan’s soccer game in West Bend/etc.”)

Now if we can just get him to stay awake during the day and sleep at night. But maybe that’s a lot to expect 🙂

Please excuse the Eddie Izzard video playing in the background…
