Everyone is doing great in the O house. Alex is such a good baby. He's not a fan of being changed (he dislikes being cold) but other than that he only cries when he is hungry, needs to be burped or is requesting a diaper change. He's already been holding his head up a little bit and even semi-smiled at Sydney this morning. He loves to stare at her, it's really sweet.
He's sleeping about 21 hours a day, and his favorite place to sleep is on daddy. Last night he slept for nearly six hours in a row on Anthony! It was four hours the night before. Holy moly. Now if only he would sleep that well in his bed.
Here's what we've been up to since Tuesday when we came home from the hospital...
Tuesday was Anthony's birthday so we celebrated with Mam-o's homemade cupcakes. Sydney ate three cupcakes-well, licked the frosting off of three. Here she is double fisting the cupcakes.
Opening a birthday present from Mam-o. I didn't get a chance to get a present for Anthony, but lucky for me he considers Alex the best birthday gift ever. Phew! ;) Mam-o and Alex
We're all a little sleep deprived at the O house
Helping feed Alex. Alex is mostly breastfed but we have been supplementing a bit with formula. Perfect solution for a few uninterrupted hours of sleep for me.Alex's first bath at home! Sydney was so excited to help with Alex's bath. She's such a great sister.
Sydney picked out the pink bunny rabbit towel for Alex for his first bath. This was actually Sydney's first bath towel too!
Not sure if he was crying because he was cold or because he was wearing a pink bunny towel... Sydney was so excited to brush Alex's hair. Check out how blonde it is!!
