since we have been home..

Cayden has officially been in this world for two weeks now..kinda crazy! It is still weird though to come onto my blog page and see I still have a few days to go until he is due. Things have been going good...he is such a good baby..hardly ever cries and when he does it doesnt last very long. He breastfeeds like a champ but wears out way too quick because of how small he is which leads to him not getting enough food so he has been getting my milk through a bottle...it has been working great though because he has been gaining an ounce to two ounces a day. On Tuesday he weighed in at 5.1 pounds! He sleeps pretty well..some nights he doesnt want mommy to sleep and others I have to wake him up to feed him. He is able to sleep through anything which doesnt surprise me since he was in the NICU which always had lots of beeps and noises non stop. My parents were able to come up for a few days this past weekend to meet their very first grandchild...they fell in love and did not want to leave!! It was really nice having them here to help me out...we miss you grandma and grandpa and cant wait till Mike's parents can come up!!!





















I dont think Cayden will be needing to ride in this very much longer...

Oh you guys! He is so adorable! I'm so happy he's home and you are all doing well! SOOOO tiny! I thought Catherine was tiny when she was 5 lb 1 oz... I can't imagine! The fun thing is they look like newborns for months rather than weeks! :) I'm so happy for you! This is the BEST time in life!
Thanks for posting so many pictures!

how precious is he?! I'm so happy your parents got to go up and meet the little guy. I wish they could have stayed longer. I'm so happy that Cayden is gaining weight so well. Have so much fun being a mommy!!!
