Tucker is 3 weeks old now! I’m having trouble remembering what day it is. I had to stop and think for a minute just now. Tuesday. They’re currently BOTH SLEEPING. This will probably only last for about 30 minutes.
Our house is a crazy mess right now. It’s really hard to get anything done with two kids. Tucker likes to nurse approximately every single hour. He’s a fast nurser though so it only lasts about five minutes but still. Every hour. If we want to go anywhere, it always involves a feeding while out.
(Tucker’s nap actually lasted only 20 minutes here).
Here are the Tucker Facts at 3 weeks old:
Wearing: size 3 month onesies! He can still fit into some NB pants though because he has the world’s skinniest legs.
Weight: ?? He has his one month appointment next week so I’ll find out then. At 1 week old, he was 8lb 4oz so I would guess about 9 pounds now?
Diapers: We just switched from newborn to size 1 diapers because we used up all the NBs that we had. We go through about 6 diapers a night and maybe 15 a day total!
Likes: Nursing, white noise, being carried around, the swing some times, nursing, nursing, nursing
Dislikes: pacifiers, his car seat unless he’s tired and the car is moving, the sound of Sam playing with his metal tractor, not nursing all.the.time
Sleep: He takes a bunch of short naps throughout the day and occasionally has a longer afternoon nap (1.5 -2 hours). Night time is still random. Last night he slept for his longest stretch yet, about 5 hours but normally they’re 2-3 hour stretches, so he’s waking about 3-4 times a night. Surprisingly Aaron and I are dealing with this much better than we did with Sam.
Nicknames: Sam started calling him Tucker Baby and now we all call him that.
Time it takes to get out of the house: About 2 hours for a 30 minute trip
Sam is up now! Must go!
