5 weeks old!

5 weeks old has proven to be quite the hoot. Poor guy had to go to the hospital and be monitored. They thought he had a urinary tract infection. It turned out he didn’t and that there must have just been irritation to the urethra that caused him to have white blood cells in his urine which lead them to think he had an infection. Thank goodness for all the precautions that were taken despite the fact that he didn’t have an infection. Infections are deadly to newborns and that is SCARY. We are/were so thankful for all of the help and care Thurston received. Other than that things have been very good. I am so thankful for what we have. This week was just me and Thurston. Daddy had to go back to work. We did a great job together. We are a good team. He is a great baby! He is cooing much more which has been so much fun. During the week we also visited daddy for lunch. This was a great week! Looking forward to many more great weeks. 🙂

4 weeks old!

We had a little photo shoot (see above). We went to Posie’s for a little coffee and met up with friends for the first time. That was fun. We also went on our first long walk to New Seasons. With today only being Wednesday, we have some time left for firsts this week.

Something else Thurston got to do this week was meet his Aunt Shelley.

For fun, I leave you with the Aggrolites-Dirty Reggae…

3 weeks and ‘ahhh’!

3 weeks has been great! It has been so fun getting to know Thurston and watching him grow. Something else he started doing is making an ‘ahhh’ sound. They are so adorable.

When we get some good sun…there is nothing better than taking photos of this cute little bean. He is so cute!

look at those leg warmers. i think every kiddo should own a pair of these. first pair. can’t wait ’til he actually fits into them. 🙂

And look at those tiny toes…nothing cuter.

Because soon enough, we will have to train him to poop in the potty….

Rollover Rollover!

Thurston rolled over from his tummy to his back for the first time on 2/9/2010 (3 weeks old) around noon. Wish I had a pic or video. Expect some footage soon!

First bath!

Thurston’s first bath was a success but it did NOT make him happy. He thought for sure we were up to no good. Poor guy!!

So not okay with warm water and soap! He does enjoy being naked but not so much on the full exposure to water. 😦

So much happier to be finished and wrapped up in his towel. He even found his thumb for a little self soothing action.

2 weeks!

Even at 2 weeks he is a SUPER happy baby. We won’t call it gas, we’ll call it a super smile!

And this is him in his snugglenest. He loves his snugglenest. This thing was a life saver. He loves to sleep where he feels secure and this thing does the trick. Not only does it do just that but it also has womb sounds that play and it helps him sleep really well (sometimes).

Hello world! This is his first stroller ride. YEA!

First outdoor lunch with Thurston (and the grandparent’s too). He did a great job! We ate outside in the sun at laughing planet on Mississippi. yummy!

One week old!

Here I am at 1 week old. We received so many clothes from people, new and used. He could only fit in about 10% of the clothes that were given to him. He was just too tiny to fill out the outfits. We still put him in some of them that wouldn’t eat him up. There were a select few that fit him perfectly and we just washed them often and kept him in those. This is one of the onesie’s that did fit him. I regret not putting him in one of the “newborn” sized outfits that he would swim around in to show to you all. It was pretty cute.

Thurston with daddy at 1 week old. They are enjoying our new rocking chair. Thurston still isn’t quite sure he cares for it. It mostly just puts us to sleep as we rock him. I am sure it’ll come in handy at some point.

Here he is getting a change! oh how he does not like to be changed unless he is full of food and in a milk coma. Other than that he will scream his head off. This picture is actually more like 2 weeks. Oh well.. I can tell by the onsie.
