Here are a smattering of pictures from Bruno's first days. He's had quite a few visitors, many of whom I forgot to take pictures of, unfortunately. The most tragic of whom is my sister who flew down here to help us out for a few days and did a magnificent job of somehow keeping Sebastian entertained (to the point where I think he thought she was his second mama), and the apartment spotless, laundry laundered, and tasty food on the table. Did I mention she made brownies from scratch? Twice. The daily 500 calories I'm burning from breastfeeding don't even make a dent in the amount I consumed because of those brownies. But they were so so good.
So what have we learned about Bruno this week? Well, he gained a whopping 3 ounces in his first couple days, which was shocking because most babies lose weight! He has dimples just like his mama, which makes me incredibly happy, and his feet and toes seem to be just like mine, too. He is an expert when it comes to nursing, has a really cute cry that we don't hear very often, snorts when he's hungry, and has already smiled, like a lot, and I'm not talking about sleep smiles, but real, during the day, wide-awake smiles. This kid is advanced.
Sebastian is doing well, and though we had a couple rough days, he seems to be adjusting really well now and showing more interest in and fascination with Bruno. He is growing into such a sweet big brother.
