Will at 3 Weeks

Will is almost three weeks old now so I wanted to write down a few things about him at this stage. 

1. He does not sleep unless he is being held.  We have spent many night sleeping upright in the recliner.  I have tried to put him in his bassinet on multiple occasions, but the minute I walk away he walks up and starts crying.  I can't bring myself to do anything other than pick him up and hold him the rest of the night.  I am not sleeping well, but we are managing. 

2. He eats about every hour and half.  So we are always sitting in the recliner eating.  I am sure the boys are sick and tired of seeing me lounging in the recliner. 

3. He is very snuggly and so much fun to hold. On Monday of this week we literally sat and rocked from the time Michael left for the work until the time he got home.  It was wonderful.

4. He is extremely gassy.  He is constantly passing gas.  But on the bright side he is a great burper.

5. He still has his days and nights mixed up.  I have no idea how I am going to function at work next week. 

6. He likes to spread his arms way out.  His limbs are very long and likes to stretch is arms out to his sides as wide as he can. 

7. He is still falling asleep during feedings. 

8. He is already too long for one of his premmie sleepers!

Finn and Sam give Will absolutely NO personal space whatsoever.  They are always in face yelling and grabbing on him.  For a few minutes he will tolerate it.

Then he gets mad and starts swinging those arms.  I have warned both boys that they deserve whatever Will dishes out. 

Last Thursday was Finn's field day.  He wasn't too excited about it because he didn't get to participate at all.  He was even more upset by the fact that he only came home with a "participants" ribbon.  I guess Finn expected to get a ribbon for "Best Score Keeper."

Mexico Beach

Today I embarked on my first ever “girls’ trip.”  I have always had friends that went with their other girl friends on beach vacations, but I have never been on one myself. 
The trip started at 6:30 a.m.  I kissed the boys goodbye (Finn woke up to make sure that he got a hug) and hopped in my newly cleaned van to head to Robyn’s house. I had originally intended to meet Samantha and Karen in Hendersonville, but I spent a little too much time with the boys and got behind.  Instead, we met at Robyn’s house a little after 7:00.
Once we all arrived, we packed up the van and set out for 109.  The van has really come in handy.  We were able to get all of our suitcases, bag, pillow, etc. packed neatly into the van with room to spare.

We officially hit the road at 7:30 – the destination – Mexico Beach Florida.  Samantha’s mom has a condo that she graciously let us rent at a ridiculously low price.  The crew consisted of Samantha, Robyn, Karen and myself.  Samantha sat up front with me; Robyn an…

Gatlinburg 2.0

In mid-June Finn and Sam accompanied Grandad and Gigi to Gatlinburg.  This is their second annual trip so will refer to it as Gatlinburg 2.0. Michael, Will and I were at home, so outside of some awesome pictures and few sweet phone calls, we don't have a great deal of knowledge about the trip. What I do know is that the trip started with hot Kristy Kremes.  Upon arriving in Gatlinburg, Finn asked if the "hot sign" was on.  Seeing that it was, they stopped in for donuts.

They also went back to Clingman's Dome.  They went last year, but I didn't pack long pants and jackets so they were pretty chilly.  It was also really foggy last year.  This year went as planned; the air was clear and the boys were warm.

One of my favorites!

Another favorite.

And . . . another favorite.

They went to Dollywood later than evening and then again the next day.

It amazes me how pop culture "savy" kids are at 5.  I was never that "in the loop."
