Johnathan had his 2 week check-up yesterday, and he had already gained a whopping 1 pound since his 6 day check up! He is now up to 6 lbs. 8.5 oz. and is quite the little piggy...eating almost every hour and a half sometimes! I'm trying my best to keep up with his healthy appetite, and as a result I'm losing the weight! Yay! I'm down over 20 pounds since delivery, and have about 25 more to go to reach my "goal" weight! Hooray for breastfeeding babies who take the calories off their mommas!
In other check-up news, it seems as if Johnathan has gotten something other than his good looks from his daddy...allergies! Yes, our poor baby is an allergy sufferer at only 2 weeks! We have been noticing that he's been a little sneezey since birth, and Tuesday we woke up to find that he had a stuffy little nose and watery eyes to go with it. Johnathan's doctor confirmed that it is indeed allergies, and since there's not too much you can do to help it in a 2 week old, he'll just have to power through it, poor thing.
We are very much enjoying the new baby phase of our parenting journey, and we have fun taking turns holding our precious boy. Aaron calls me a "baby snatcher" when I try to take Johnathan away from him. It's such a joy for me to see how much Aaron loves his son. Now, when I look at Aaron, I can't help but to see our little boy, and I hope that Johnathan will grow up to be a wonderful man just like his father.
