His other favorite activity is looking at people and puppies. He loves eyes and faces. Here's a cute father/son moment from Monday after school.
Yesterday, Ezekiel went on his first date/doctor visit. Another young mom of a little girl and I both took our babies to their checkups at the hospital. Here we are in the waiting area. (Pediatricians don't take appointments either- first come, first served!) After 2 weeks, Ezekiel weighed in at 8 lbs 1 oz. This is up a full ounce from his birth weight! Good eating, son. The doctor said that Ezekiel is looking like a healthy (gordo!) boy and he'll see us again for his 2 month immunization visit. I'm not looking forward to that one, but I've got 6 weeks to prep myself.
Today we are excited because Grandma and Grandpa Nelson arrive. This will be their first time ever holding a grandchild. We can't wait for them to get here. So, today's agenda has a sponge bath and outfit trying-on as the big activities. Though Ezekiel's umbilical cord stump fell off last Friday, I'm terrified to give him a "real bath". He's not really dirty, and my sponge baths are pretty thorough. Perhaps Grandma will be able to assist with this big first.
More updates to come soon!
