2 weeks down

Posted on February 16th, 2007 by Thomas and Kymberlie.

Yes, he turns 2 weeks old at 9:05PM tonight. This week has been pretty eventful, and we’ve posted some new photos here. I also highly recommend the animation I spent way too much time making recently. The link is here. Those are actually sequential photos.
Some milestones this week:

1. Umbilical cord fell off. We put it in a little envelope. Any suggestions on what to do with it (or for what to do with the Placenta in our freezer)?

2. He gained a whole pound in a week. I guess a whole milk diet will do that.

3. I have stopped using a spit-up towel on my shoulder when i burp him. He misses anyway, and it give me a good reason to change clothes at the end of every day.

4. First trips out of the house. Thankfully, the car puts him right to sleep.

    Save Elliot’s cord in a little bottle or special box and put it with the other “treasures” you will give him some day-report cards, first hair cut clipping, baby teeth, first outfit, etc. I have all of those things and many more from Kari’s firsts.

    Beautiful wonderful little guy! I love to look at the pictures!

    Hi, At last we saw Elliot’s eyes open. He sure is cute. Can’t wait to see him in person. You both look quite good for having a two week old baby. Enjoy. Great Aunt Mary

    I have heard that some people will bury the placenta and plant a tree on top of it. Now, my brother made fun of his friends who had their “own tree” but I think it is a lovely idea. I guess it is supposed to ground them to their birthplace. Anyway, just a thought. Give him a big kiss for me!

    Love,
