Three Weeks Old

Our little Micah is three weeks old today! I've been very busy taking care of him, changing diapers, feeding, and of course cuddling with him! He's such a sweet little guy, always ready to be held and cuddled, and he hardly ever cries. (Of course every time I say that, he cries hard the next time I change his diaper.)

Micah has grown so much in the last three weeks! At his last doctor appointment he was already 9 lbs, 13 oz, up nearly an entire pound from his birth weight! He was 22 inches long, another inch taller, and he's continued to grow since then. I'm sure he's over 10 lbs now! He has been working on holding up his head, bobbing it around when we hold him upright on our chests. He doesn't have full control of it yet, and won't for a while I'm sure, but he's very strong for such a little guy.

Maverick has a lot of interest in Micah, always trying to sneak in a little lick on the back of his head when we're holding him, or on his fingers and toes when Micah's in his bouncer chair. (Which he loves to sit and take naps in! Thanks cousin Robyn!) I don't see any way that Micah will be afraid of dogs when he's older, as he's already very tolerant of Maverick's ever present tongue, as well as his occasional barking.

We're very blessed by our little man, so thankful that God has given us such a wonderful, healthy, and handsome little son. He truly is a gift!
