Big Ben is 3 weeks old and was supposed to be born 3 days ago. He grows an inch every night and I can't possibly imagine him being born the monster he is today. His newborn clothes became capri lenth pants over night and he has successfully blown crap out of his newborn size diapers three times in the last two days. Mimi was in newborn diapers until she was 7 weeks old! God is so good to us and blesses us with children who like to sleep. Like I mentioned, he has been sleeping 4-5 hr stretches at night since he escaped from the womb and the other night he got all night owl on our butts and woke every 3 hrs. I have this overwhelming respect for those parents whose newborns wake every 2-3hr! I was a zombie the next day. He redeemed himself and pulled out a 6 hr snooze fest last night. Makes you jump out of bed when you roll over and look at the clock and need two hands to start counting the hours on your fingers. Had to make sure he was breathing. He is such a gent and goes along for the ride...where ever Mimi decides we should go.
His new bestie, Charlie, hooked him up with some fancy pants. And just in case we acquire new parent amnesia...his rear end is appropriately labeled to help us decipher between back and front.
