Finn is such a sweet & mellow baby, just like Liam was. He really only cries if he's hungry or full of air. He looks a lot like his big brother, but is slowly starting to have some of his own features develop. They have the exact same nose, which is something that I noticed simply from both of their ultrasound photos. Finn has fit right into our family perfectly. I practically wear him everywhere, so we have quickly gotten back into our normal routine. Finn has already been on numerous adventures, since we are always keeping up with big brother! We all love him like crazy and are so happy he's here! Life is already better now that he's a part of it with us!
Sleeping: Once again we have one of those amazing newborn sleepers, but I know that this is probably temporary, just as it was with Liam. At Finn's 2 week checkup he was already back to his birth weight plus 1.5 lbs, so our pediatrician gave me his approval to stop waking Finn for feedings. He can take a 3+ hour nap at anytime during the day, and then usually sleeps a good 5-7 hour stretch the first part of the night. After that he is up about every 2 hours. Right now, Liam wakes more than Finn at night; it's ridiculous!
Health: Finn is a happy & healthy baby! He suffered a cracked collar bone at birth (apparently this somewhat common with big babies), but it has healed perfectly!
Likes: His most favorite thing is to lay in the shade below some trees and stare at the leaves. I love watching his eyes widen with excitement! He also loves to follow big brother with his eyes, always curious about what Liam is up to!
While I love to watch Finn grow on what really seems like a daily basis,
I'm in no rush for him to start hitting those milestones.
I am just loving this newborn stage!
