Five Days New

Wells is five days new today! This little baby is so sweet and is doing so good!! He is nursing great and never cries. He likes to be held at night (he's fine not being held during the day). That probably sounds like a complaint but it's not. Not for now anyways. I don't mind holding him at night...I actually enjoy it. I know the exhaustion will sink in and I'll be ready for him to sleep on his own before too long but for now I'm soaking up the snuggles. Plus my Mom and Scott are being so, so  helpful. My mom sneaks into my room at some point in the middle of the night and holds him for 2-3 hours so I can sleep. Then Scott takes him at 7:00 and gets up with the boys and I sleep some more for a few more hours. So it's really not bad.
We have our first pediatrician appointment in the morning and I'm so anxious to see how it goes. I'm mostly curious to know how much he weighs. When we left the hospital he had dropped down to 5 pounds, 4.5 ounces. He was nursing so great in the hospital so I was a little surprised he had lost that much. I know he lost some the day we got home because he got circumcised that morning and they said he would basically sleep the rest of the day, which was true. I could hardly get him to eat. I feel like he's made up for it today and yesterday though. This baby has more wet and poopy diapers than any of my other babies had at this point. I have to change him every time I feed him!!
My big boys went to school today so it was just me and this little guy. My house was so quiet. I loved being home with him today, just us. Usually when the boys are at school I use that time to be out of my house and run errands. I very, very rarely just stay home. So today was really nice. I'm loving my one on one bonding time with Wells. Maybe that's why I don't mind our middle of the nights so much. He's so peaceful and calm and it does this mommas soul some good to be able to take that in.
