1 Week Old!

It seems amazing that it was only a week ago as we sat up all night working through painful contractions. Now we only sit up all night getting the little guy to eat. It's only been a week, but what a week!

We are continuously surprised by this little being. His personality is already coming out and, as he improves at breastfeeding, his parents get a bit more rest and a bit more space to truly appreciate his existence.

Nicknames have been flying from the more standard "Ollie" and "OJ" to "Toad" and now "Chicken Wing". This last one stems from his pose as, when he gets a truly good latch and is gulping back his meal, he tucks his fists under his chin and makes a little chicken wing with his arm.
