1 week!

Owen is now 1 week old! I cried a lot! Probably, just giving birth wacky hormones. I just really don't want him to grow up and he's now a week old.

We have a good routine down. Owen wakes up when ever he's hungry and I drop whatever I'm doing or wake up, and feed him.

Aiden doesn't pay much mind to Owen. He just notices if the baby is missing or crying or we are doing something different with Owen, like changing his diaper. Other than that he mostly ignores him. He has had a hard time with his name. For several days he has called him Noah. However this morning daddy asked Aiden what his brothers name is and he said, "Noah... Nowen... Owen!" So he did get it on his own. Unfortunately now Josh has on occasion called our baby Noah or Nowen.

I'm recovering. Slower than I'd like. Although for the first few days home, we discovered Josh was over medicating me. Now that we have the right dose and time, it's good to be awake occasionally:) Next week frightens me because Josh will be going back to work and I don't know how I'm going to take care of 2 kids alone. I guess we'll see.

Here are some 1 week pictures.

So sweet! I know I will totally cry at every milestone with this new baby, so you can feel completely justified! The time in the womb lasts forever and then they come out and they grow up before you blink, its so not fair.

What a cutie! At least you can get good pictures of Owen.

Aiden makes me laugh.

Than's parents almost named him Noah. It isn't a bad name, but we're glad they didn't use it.

Good luck with 2 kids and Josh going back to work. Try to take it easy like everyone tells you to because it turns out I was overdoing it too much.

Maybe I'll be able to help soonish...

Okay, Owen TOTALLY looks like you -- that is your nose! so cute!

And don't worry Em, you can do it. It is hard when they go back to work , but get some family or friends to come over. I remember really wanting to just get out of the house after a couple weeks. Get out as much as you can --- but not into completely public places, visit friends and family. A change of scenery is very nice.

and don't feel guilty in the least for letting Aiden watch too much TV or something. Do what you have to do.

also, take up ALL offers for help and for meals. You deserve it! Gosh, I wish I was there to help! Did you get your package???

For the record, I was finally vindicated on the over medicating charges. I found a paper the Nurse gave me that said every 4 hours, which I had been following precisely :)
