4 Weeks

I can't believe it's been 4 weeks since Noah made his grand entrance to the world. After a 2 week stay in the NICU, we got to go home and he has been doing great. He eats, sleeps, and poops just like a good baby should. He hardly ever cries, unless he is hungry or cold. Noah loves to be swaddled, as long as he can keep his left arm free! He's not too sure about a paci, though we've tried it a few times. Though it's sometimes hard to see in pictures, he has tons of blonde hair. Sweet is definitely the word to describe my little boy. He likes to snuggle, but also sleeps well in his own bed.

 There are definitely hard moments, but all in all being a mom has been great so far. Todd is great and helps out a lot with getting up at night. Thanks to his stay in the NICU, Noah has so problem going between a bottle and nursing so I get decent sleep. That helps a lot. We have made trips to Mimi and Poppi's, Walmart, and The Fresh Market so far. Otherwise most days we just stay in and hang out on the couch. Growing is hard work :) 
I think I hear the hungry cry, so I will cut this short as leave you with some pictures.

Thanks Erika. We definitely have our rough days, but for the most part it is going well.
