McCoy will be two weeks tomorrow and I can hardly believe it. Time has gone so quickly already. I can't believe how much we love him and how much he matters in our lives. How did we not know him only 15 days ago? He is perfection to me!
I am going to take a two week break from blogging to really sink into these newborn days. Or, as my 4-year-old niece calls them, born born baby days. I will be back with posts in early June and will resume my regular Monday, Wednesday, Friday schedule.
In the meantime, though, I wanted to share a few things I'm loving during the first two weeks of his life.
Solly Baby Wrap: This carrier is amazing. He didn't love it at first, but now it seems to be one of his favorite ways to be held. He sleeps deeply on me in it. It holds him in a similar position to when he was in utero. It doesn't allow you to be totally hands free when they're itty bitty, but allows a little bit of freedom while still being able to hold your babe. He's in it right now as I type! :)
These nursing bras: Originally, I bought a nicer nursing bra. But, here's the deal: you leak on them. You stretch them out. You just need something functional. These are less than $7 each and have been absolutely perfect.
These protein balls: Breastfeeding makes you so hungry! Having these on hand in the freezer has been crucial to my 3 p.m. hunger.
aden + anais swaddles: These things are really hyped up and I wasn't sure if they'd be as great as people say they are. Oh, but they are! They're the perfect weight and size. He absolutely loves to be swaddled in them.
Our Moses basket: If not in my arms, McCoy loves his Moses basket. The striped sides and handles hold his attention when he's awake and it's the perfect way for him to sleep in the living room when I'm getting things done. I highly recommend!
See y'all in two weeks - when I have a ONE month old! :)
