I’m excited it only took a week to get back the photos from Landon’s photo shoot. I’m in love with them and think so many came out cute! My goal was to have 5 cute pictures from the day and I ended up with almost 40! Landon was a trooper and helped the day go smoothly. Here are some of my favorites:
Landon is two weeks old today. It’s crazy to think we have been a family of four for that long already. I’m very thankful James is off for the summer because he has been a huge help with both kids. Landon is a pretty easy baby so far. He nurses every two hours and likes to constantly move. Most of the time he can fall asleep on his own in the swing. A few nights he even slept in the bassinet. He stopped crying every time we change his diaper which is a big relief. He also doesn’t cry as much when we put him in the car seat like he was a week ago. My favorite things that he does are hold my finger while nursing and how he falls asleep with his hand on his chest. We tried two week pictures today but they were a disaster. Landon kept wiggling and was hungry so it is what it is. I need to find a better solution before he turns a month old.
Although Landon’s umbilical cord hasn’t completely fallen off I decided to give him a bath tonight after he had a blow out diaper. He hated the bath at first until I started pouring warm water over his head to rinse out the shampoo. He didn’t even mind water in his face. Luckily Aunt Polly bought him some “boy” bath towels so he didn’t have to wrap up in a pink towel.
After seeing so many cute sibling photos on Pinterest I wanted to hire someone to come at family photos and newborn photos of Landon at the house. Some photographers were super expensive so I found an amateur photographer on Craigslist who was affordable. He came today to take our pictures. I also had Gigi and Aunt Polly come to help. Hopefully I should have the pictures back in a few days.
After the park I had to take Landon to the doctors because they wanted to check is jaundice levels again. Landon has lost a little weight since being born but most babies do. The night we went to the ER his jaundice levels were at a 16 and today when they checked them again they were at a 13. The doctor wasn’t too concerned and just said to keep nursing him because the more he poops the faster his jaundice will go away.
