And we all say ahhhh

Yesterday was James' one-week birthday! We are still getting used to one another, but it's going well. Breastfeeding is coming along nicely. We went to the pediatrician last Friday and he was down to 7 lbs 2 oz, which was more than 10% weight loss from birth. We had to go back Monday and make sure he was gaining weight and he was up to 7 lbs 10 oz, which is an excellent gain.

Mommy has flat nipples that got even flatter when her milk came in, so we still use a nipple shield to latch on sometimes. According to the pediatrician, we can continue using it, as long as he continues gaining weight. The concern is that a nipple shield gets in the way of mom's body producing enough milk, but that doesn't seem to be a problem for us.

Our friend came and took newborn pics of James on Saturday. He sent us five as a sneak peek and I am absolutely in love with them. I don't mean to brag, but my kid is really stinking cute.

This hat always results in this pissed off face. . .

This is the pic we are using for our birth announcement.

I love the way this one was edited.

I like the simplicity of this one.

He looks a little dubious of the whole photo shoot thing.
