5 weeks

Teddy had his 5 week check up yesterday and everything looked wonderful. He is in the 97th percentile for height and weight which is fun for me- except for when I am carrying him up the four flights of stairs to our flat :D But carrying him around all the time is helping me get back in shape so I really don't mind.

Things are going so much better. We are getting out of the house often and going for walks, shopping, and meeting up with other mommy friends. Teddy is always on his best behavior for others so it is nice to watch him quietly lay next to another little one, especially since I know he won't do the same for us at home. yet.

Even though I am so excited for him to start interacting with us, I know I am going to miss this. The way he looks so angelic when he sleeps in the wrap.

The little smiles that he is starting to make and the strange little noises that can occur anytime whether he is awake or asleep.

How excited he gets before breastfeeding. He will get a bit hysterical and then instantly calm down when his head gets near my chest. He then gets an impish little smile on his face and takes a few seconds before ravenously digging in with abandon. It is pretty much the cutest thing ever.

I love him so much and feel so blessed to have Theo in our life. I knew mommyhood would be awesome but I was not prepared for how high the highs would be and how low the lows. I am so happy that my husband and I took this step and that we were lucky enough to have a baby like Theodor. Even though I sometimes wish he would stay my little baby forever, I know watching him grow and mature and become the amazing man that he is going to be, is going to be such a wonderful journey for my husband and I. The first weeks definitely have been.

Teddy as I see him when he falls asleep in the wrap- in this position I can get lots of kisses in while he sleeps :D


  1. What a cute photo! And way to go mama, he is a healthy, growing boy all thanks to you :)

  2. Love the pic! Aw, that sweet sleeping baby face... not surprised you kiss him all the time :-)
    And I'm glad things are easier now and yu're feeling better. It's funny how things can turn around in just a few weeks! Soon you'll have forgotten just how gruesome the beginning was ;-)

  3. Oh my goodness he is adorable, what a beautiful baby you have girl!
