2 Weeks Old!

Mason man is 2 weeks old! It's so hard to believe it has been 2 weeks since I have given birth! I feel great, and Mason is doing well, too. He has had a little hard time with breastfeeding. He's a lazy nurser who would rather suck on the breast like a pacifier rather than eat and fill up. So because of that, I have to nurse him, then pump for 5-10 minutes, feed him the breast milk I get from pumping in a bottle, and then supplement with 2 or 3 ounces of formula to make him go a little longer between feeds, otherwise, he is on me non stop and I can't take care of the twins or my own needs during the day. It has been a little overwhelming, but I have hung in there so far. We'll see how the next couple of weeks go though.

He is an absolute joy to have though. The twins love him to pieces and always want to hold him, hug him, kiss him, help change him or clean him or feed him. They have adjusted better than we ever could have imagined. When Mason is fed and full and content, he loves being held and talked to, or playing in his bouncy seat. He doesn't seem too big on the swing yet though. Or his bed. But that's a whole other story altogether! ;-)

The more I look at him, I think he does look more like me. Some people say he looks like Merasia or Connor, but I don't really see it. And I definitely don't see a ton of Frank's looks in him like Connor has. He has Frank's feet and BIG hands, and the darker hair like myself and Merasia. But that's it as far as I can tell right now. I still can't believe he is really here! It's amazing to me that we have 3 children now! I love them to pieces, and already can't wait to welcome our fourth in a couple years! ♥
