Oh my cuteness!

Nathan had a professional photo shoot done when he was 14 days old.  He was such an angel during the shoot and we got tons of seriously adorable pictures!

She got lots of closeups of his cuteness too!

We also got some pictures of me and Nathan

and some family pictures.

These last few Jesse-Nathan pictures are by far the best ever!

Nathan's Fourth Week

Nathan has definitely been going through a growth spurt this week (cue cluster feedings, fussiness, and chubbiness).  At his doctor's appointment on Friday, he weighed in at an impressive 8 pounds 1 ounce and is now 21 inches long!

We have been enjoying walks around the neighborhood and park, and Nathan is interacting more with his favorite forest friend, Mr. Owl,

Take a peek at Nathan;s adorable belly button! 

And here are the boys, being nerds!

Nathan at 3 Weeks

Jesse went back to work this week, so Nathan and I were on our own for the first time.  Nathan keeps us on our toes by changing what he likes and doesn't like.  One thing we decided to try this week (and he likes, for now) is a pacifier (his soothie!)

He has definitely put on weight as well, primarily in his belly!

He must have grown in length too, because this hoodie that was laughably big on his when we first got home fits pretty well now.

We have oodles of books to read to Nathan, courtesy of my sister Nicole, but Jesse hasn't read Nathan a single one.  Instead, he has read Nathan a slew of articles from the Economist!  So Nathan has heard about Thailand's military junta, NYU's Abu Dhabi campus, and retirement in China, among other interesting tidbits. 

Don't worry though, I am keeping Nathan relatable by making sure he knows where his belly button is, how to say goodnight to items in his room, and who the old woman in the shoe is.

Nathan's Second Week

Jesse and I have been enjoying our second week with Nathan.  He is still incredibly cute, and is chubbing up a bit!

Nathan loves getting rocked to sleep,

and loves sleeping next to us.

And although he didn't love his first bath so much, he loved his second (especially when Jesse was washing his hair).

Nathan is Here!

Our dear sweet boy Nathan arrived on Monday March 30th -- just early enough to surprise us a bit! He was 6 pounds 4.2 ounces at birth, measuring at 19.5 inches in length.  And he is 100% adorable! Here are the highlights from his first week of life:

Nathan was born at 3:53am Monday morning.  Yes, he came out looking this cute!

We spent the next day getting to know each other at the hospital.

On Wednesday, we got to go home!  Nathan's going home outfit was a tad big on him -- he's so tiny!

We have had fun playing with Nathan's toys, walking around the neighborhood, and (slowly) learning how to sleep better.  We are so blessed to have this cutie!
