Here's little Bryson at 1 week. I can't believe today was actually my due date! We're thankful that Bryson has been in our lives this week. He's such a good, patient, easy going little guy. I know I keep saying this, but its true that Sariah just adores him.
At one week, Bryson:
-loves to suck. Nothing calms him down like his thumb (which he found hours after birth) or a paci.
-isn't really a fussy guy. He gets mostly upset if he's got gas, other than that nothing really fazes him. Although...
-he isn't a fan of diaper changes. I think that's when he gets upset the most.
-is a super nurser. I've never had any problems with his latch. He's a slow nurser though & often falls asleep. In fact during the night it seems to take forever to feed him. First I have to strip him down to his onesie. Then he'll feed for 10 min on the first side, fall asleep, so I have to burp him, then he'll continue another 5-10 in that same side. Then he gets a diaper change, does 10 min on the other side, gets his jammies & swaddled in his blanket, gets tops off & finally goes back to sleep. Thankfully we're only repeating this process 2-3 times a night depending on when we get to bed.
-he's a self soother. Often I can hear him just cooing to himself in his crib between feedings, but he never gets real upset. In fact, after the first night, we haven't had to calm him down between feedings.
Seriously, the best thing about him is how calm he is. (I think he gets it from Doug.) He makes having a second kid a breeze. (And hopefully I didn't just jinx myself by saying so!)
