Three Weeks

It's hard to believe that Clark is three weeks old, and yet at the same time I'm already having a hard time remembering what life was like without him. He is really such a good baby. He still sleeps a lot, so maybe that's it. On the first day we got home from the hospital he cried a lot and I was worried he was not going to be a happy baby, but now he really only cries during diaper changes and when he's hungry.
At his two week check up he weighed 9 lbs. 15 oz. and was 23 inches long. When we left the hospital, he was down to 8 lbs. so he basically gained 2 pounds in 2 weeks. At this rate he will be one big baby, but I'm pretty sure the weight gain will slow down a bit.
Scarlett is very sweet with him and says "I yuv my baby bwother" and "Hey Buddy" a lot. The only negative thing she's said so far is when we're in the car and he's crying she says "Calm down, Buddy, you hurtin' my ears". She's had a cold, so we've been trying to keep them apart, but she's starting to get better and really loves kissing his head and holding him.
I'm getting a little restless at the house, but pretty soon I'm sure we'll be in a routine. Right now I'm just trying to soak up the newborn-ness of Clark and enjoy every minute because Scarlett is proof that in the blink of an eye they are big kids.

What cuties! Glad that it's going well! I'm with you on soaking it up while you can- my baby is 9 1/2 months old! How'd that happen?!

He is precious. You have a darling family. I am anxious for all the cousins to play together...such fun awaits us.

They look so sweet together. I hope Scarlett is better so she can have lots of cuddle time with Clark.

Hope to see you out and about soon.
