2 weeks new

Bennett was 2 weeks on Monday. We had to go to the doctor for a weight check and for his circumcision. I've been dreading this day since we left the hospital. You see they never did it at the hospital because of his breathing. They didn't want to make his breathing worse when we were finally getting it better. Plus we went home on a Saturday so our doctor wasn't around. He does the plastibell which is easy so he said he'd do it at his office at two weeks. So Monday we had to be there at 11:00 so they could put a numbing cream on him, we waited 15 minutes in the waiting room so the medicine could start working, and then nurse Lauren came and took him back. I guess it's a good thing we couldn't go back because I couldn't have heard him crying. The doctor came and got us within about 5-10 minutes and as we were walking back I could hear him crying. The other nurse Jeanie said he was calm until they laid him back down to be weighed. At his 1 week check up he was 8 lb 13 oz and Monday he was 9 lb 5 oz. Doctor said we didn't have to come back in a week for 1 oz which I was glad to hear. So now we are good until his 2 month appointment.  Judy kept Landon at the house and she was planning on staying the night because she had a funeral the next day...and I am so glad she was here.  Bennett was definitely crankier than normal (which I don't blame the kid) and definitely needed to be held.  Plus Landon was starting his sickness and not napping so he was cranky and needed just as much attention.  Judy and I were just taking on one kid and switching back and forth. 
Here is B at 2 weeks new :)
Here are the boys this morning.  B in the swing sleeping and L in the rocking chair.  They are too sweet!
Bennett is such an easy baby...or so far.  Lance and I are definitely lucky because Landon has always been an easy kid (besides his ear infections and some other health issues) and Bennett seems to be doing the same.  He eats every 3-4 hours and sometimes longer if we allow him, he is eating 3 1/2 oz. of formula as of this week, we usually feed him at 10 or 10:30 PM, he then eats around 2:00 AM, and again at around 6:00 AM.  We are not complaining with that schedule.  He doesn't really cry unless he is wet or dirty then he gets a bit fussy.  He likes to sleep in his lamb swing and when he is awake he enjoys just laying on the floor and looking around.  He hasn't left the house too much.  Our doctor recommended keeping him away from others for 6 weeks.  He said with the flu going around it just isn't worth it.  We agree!!!  He has rode with me to take Landon to school one day last week, we've been to sonic a couple times :), he did go to church last Wednesday for a few minutes, to my parents house, and then to the doctor twice. 
Landon and I have been sick so we are trying to leave B alone as much as possible (not too easy when I'm here at home with both boys by myself).  We have the cold/throat and belly stuff.  It's a lot of fun!  We did go to the walmart clinic yesterday but they said it is just viral.  So we will just give it time I guess. 
Well I am hoping to get both boys to nap here in a few minutes and hopefully I can rest too.  I'll try to post about all the other things going on later today.
