Our Overachiever

Tuesday was Oliver's 2 week checkup (technically, he was 2 weeks and 4 days old). The pediatrician was most impressed with his growth. He is now 21 inches long (a whole inch longer than his first checkup), and weighs 8 lbs. 10 oz. The doctor was just hoping he would be back to his birthweight of 8 lbs. even. Oh, and his head got a little bigger. He's now 17% in head circumference. Woo hoo!
So, needless to say, our boy likes to eat. Alot. And often, lately. No sooner do we finish a diaper change and a feeding then it's back to doing a diaper change and a feeding. Oy! And the noises he makes when he eats - man, I wish I enjoyed my food that much.
One other important note:  Oliver really likes his crib. He sleeps consistently 4 to 5 hours at a time during the night. I have to wake him up around 3am to feed him and then he's right back to sleep until 6:30-7:00. I have probably jinxed us by repeating this feat out loud, but I am most appreciative that he has been letting me get more sleep at night than I thought I would.
We had more friends stop by to visit and bring us dinner this week. Yay Payless girls! Matt's parents left early Wednesday, so we have been on our own again. And I'm not gonna lie, taking care of a baby is hard. Really hard. But, their cuteness just about makes up for it. So, we're hanging in there.
