Elijah John was born March 31 at 11:37 PM Central European Time. He weighed 8 lbs 6 oz and was 21 inches long. His head was 14.96 inches. He has kept his mommy and daddy very busy and a wee bit sleep deprived, but we are so in love. He is absolutely perfect!

Hanging out with Daddy - 1 day old

Cuddling with Mommy - 2 days old

He had his two-week check up yesterday (I cannot believe he’s already 15 days old!) and has already regained his birth weight plus 11 ounces. He is definitely eating well! I am breastfeeding, and I’m really glad that part of motherhood has not been a huge hurdle for us. I know many women struggle with it. So far so good…just a little sore at times!

I am working on writing his birth story and will post it in a multi-part entry next week. Thanks for sticking with us even when we’ve been so busy that we haven’t had time to post. I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

    I’ve said it before, but congratulations! He really is gorgeous.

    He’s also the same length that Mikey was when he was born!

    Glad to hear the breastfeeding is going well, sometimes that can be rough.

    Much love to you guys xx
