Week 3

We are settling into some routines now and starting to figure out what kind of schedule Parker likes for his day! Right now our days are filled with sleeping and feedings with a few lactation appointments and doctors appointments mixed in.

Parker slept through his first shopping trip to the outlet mall

One of our many naps during the day

We held off for three weeks but Parker finally got his pacifier or "plug" as we call it. We are trying not to use it much but it sure does help during diaper changes and late at night!

On Sunday we went for our first walk. It wouldn't be a walk in Oregon without a little bit of rain!

Parker started out sleeping in a co-sleeper in the middle of our bed but we are working on slowly transitioning him into a pack-n-play bassinet that is right next to our bed. Ashley introduced us to swaddlers and they are a huge help in getting him to sleep!

Ready to watch opening day baseball with Daddy! We can't believe that he has already lost his newborn look and is so big already! At a check up yesterday he was already 8 pounds 6 ounces.


  1. Oh Tara! He is so handsome. It is so exciting to have a newborn in the house. Looks like everything is going well. Oh, and your comment on your birth story about giving birth without pain meds, I totally agree! Way to go mom!!

  2. Thanks Becky! We sure do miss you guys!
