Life with a Newborn

I can't believe Luke is over 3 weeks old already. Basically he does what every newborn does - eats, sleeps, cries and poops. During the day he's a very calm baby. In the evenings he's been really crabby and gassy. It usually starts around 9 PM and lasts until midnight. He also does not sleep very well at night and is up every few hours. We're definitely tired but at least we know it's short lived! We've been to the pediatrician a few times and he is up to 7 lbs 15 ounces and looking really healthy. Although we're stuck inside most of the time, we have managed a few short trips out. We went to the park one day and for a walk around the block another time. Evan was also able to show off his little brother at preschool. He was very excited!

Big Brother Evan

We were really worried about how Evan would react to having a little brother. After all, he's been the center of attention in our family for 3 1/2 years, and he loves being in that position. Luckily, since Evan met Luke at the hospital he has been nothing but loving towards his little brother. When Luke starts crying, Evan immediately wants him to be taken care of. He helps get things ready for diaper changes and washes Luke (only his feet) during bath time. In the morning he asks how Luke slept the night before. A while back I was at the pediatrician with Luke, and Evan was with Rick at home. Evan told Rick, "I miss my baby." I hope this continues!

The bear Evan made for Luke at Build a Bear. When you press the hand it says, "I love you."

Make sure to turn the volume up. My favorite part is when Evan says "little fella."
