Landon was 2 weeks old yesterday! We went to the dr. for his checkup and he is almost back to his birth weight @ 7lbs 15 ounces, and has grown a 1/2 inch.

We went to the dr. for his checkup and he is almost back to his birth weight @ 7lbs 15 ounces, and has grown a 1/2 inch. The past week has been busy trying to figure out his schedule and adjusting to life with a baby. Landon has slept great the past two nights, letting mom, dad, and Grammy get about 4 hours of sleep between feedings. He is eating pretty regularly every 2-3 hours during the day.
So some of you might be wondering “Who is Grammy”? Grammy is what my mom decided she wanted her name to be J Grammy is here for the week to help me out since Dave went back to work this week. It’s been so wonderful to have her here to help me with everything around the house and she’s been taking the late night feedings with Landon. Next week will be the real test to see if Dave & I can balance all of these responsibilities on our own…I’m hopeful that everything will be fine. Dave can’t wait to get home from work in the afternoons to see Landon. In fact, he really doesn’t let Landon out of his arms until we go to bed. It’s so awesome to see how they have already bonded.
Landon had 2 very special visitors last week. He met Nanny & Pa for the first time. They came to visit last week on their way to Arkansas and stopped back by earlier this week on their way home. They couldn't be more proud of the little guy. Nanny had a hard time sharing Landon with Pa, but Dave & I would sneak Landon into Pa's hands a few times while Nan wasn't looking :) Nan had so much fun with Landon. She enjoyed every minute with him! She was also reassured that she still knew what to do with a baby. Good thing, because she is going to be watching Landon when I go back to work in March. Nan has graciously offered to take care of Landon until he's "a little bigger" to go to day care. Dave & I are thrilled that she wants to do this, it will be so much easier to go back to work knowing that Landon is with the best babysitter ever.
We went for an outing last night to go meet Landon’s first friend. We visited the Swinigan family and got to see their little one, Daphne, who was born 3 days before Landon. He is a pound and a half bigger than her! Both babies were so great during our visit. God has blessed both families with these 2 very healthy, perfect babies.
