early morning play session with sam - 3 days old


Observations after Week 1:

Sam LOVES to sleep...during the day!
sucks on his fingers or fist for comfort
has taken to the swing and bouncer during the day
Likes to be warm
Looks a lot like Jack did as a baby, with a different nose
eyes are bloodshot from delivery
has a distinct furrowed brow
loves to nurse (or "milk" as Jack calls it), but takes 10 minutes before deciding to latch on
doesn't crawl...much to jack's dismay
doesn't eat fruit snacks, cotton candy ice cream, or PB crackers
(all of which have been offered to him and quickly denied by mom)
has a sizeable head and shoulders, and a teeny-weenie bum and legs
lost umbilical cord
didn't love bathtime
loves laying next to, or on top of someone

Seems to be PERFECT in every way.
(I think we'll keep him!)

Jack BEAMING with pride lying next to his new brother!
