4 weeks

Liam has been with Tara and I for 4 weeks now. Not all at home mind you, but 4 weeks have gone by since his birth.

My Mom tells me he’s not really a month old, that would be Friday(sorta) but 4 weeks is nice to think about.

He was born at 5lb 3oz, and as of this morning is now 7lb 11oz!
Any worry that Tara and I had about underfeeding him have kinda been put aside 😉

And we can see how big he’s getting. We look at older pictures(older…seems silly) and we see the difference. Our website (BillLovesTara) has some updated pics, maybe you can see the difference too 🙂

Far away Grandma had to go home finally, she only has so much vacation in a year. So it’s just the two of us and the wee one.  So far so good, and we’re almost setting into a schedule, which of course means he’s already starting to change things up on us.

He had his first road trip, and I have to say did very well. Daddy wasn’t to smart, although he thought he was.
See, I have this power converter that goes from car to normal outlets. So we thought that we would bring the breast pump and an electric kettle for roadside feedings. Sounds reasonable right? I mean, it’s a 300w converter, and the box said I could watch a TV on it. Well, apparently the kettle takes a little more than 300w…as in 1500w! We blew out two car outlets before sorting that out. Good thing it was a rental 😉

It was 8 hours there, 8 back, and he held his own in the car seat. Not bad.

So in a month he gets his first round of shots, and I’m sure we’re all gonna love that.

So, he’s happy, healthy, and larger, all good things.
