Flying Solo

…Well, not quite solo.

My mother has been here for the past week, helping out with Will. She headed back to New Zealand yesterday, and I have to admit that I was a little nervous about our first night as a threesome, without that extra pair of helping (and experienced) hands.

Luckily the night went pretty well. Will woke more than usual, needing to be fed at 1.30am, 5am, and 8.30am, but it was a pretty good night. He has put on stacks of weight in the last week so I’m sure that accounts for his increased food needs. He has put on 520 grams in the last 8 days! For comparison, the average baby puts on 120 grams a week.

What a little greedy guts we have!

    I’m sorry your mom is gone, it’s got to be a bit scary those first few nights of flying solo, but it sounds like you did great 🙂

    Can’t wait to see more photos of the lil guy!
