Jack is two weeks old as of yesterday.  In the week and a half we’ve had him home, we have reached the following milestones:

  • John and I have both been peed on
  • Jack peed on his own face
  • I was able to put Jack to sleep by swaying and humming, not nursing (one time only, so far)
  • I made banana bread while John held him
  • I nursed Jack with one arm and fed myself with the other at the same time
  • Jack spit up in my hair
  • Jack spent several hours (divided into 1 and 2-hour chunks) sleeping in the bassinet Tuesday night and I SLEPT

The next milestone is probably unraveling the sleep progress.  It feels too early for optimism.

    Peeing on one’s own face is a male rite of passage, unfortunately. How long it continues is generally a good marker for later success in life.

  2. The Mombat

    I’m so happyyyyyy for you guys! I can’t wait to see pics!!

    Sorry you’re getting peed on. But you’re being peed on by the most delightful human you’ve ever met, so, that probably buffers the whole situation. 😀

  3. Way to go! All great milestones! Also, the website below clearly isn’t mine, it’s Youtube. But I remember not being able to make it out to movies, and since you might miss Bohemian Rhapsody in theaters, thought you’d want to see this instead…
