Sweet Foster is one week old today (Tuesday.) I can’t believe he’s been with us for a whole week!
I fall in love with him a little bit more every day.
We went to our first Pediatrician appointment on Monday and everything checked out great… the only issue we are dealing with is a slight tongue-tie or “heart shaped tongue.” He was very tongue-tied at birth and luckily a lactation consultant noticed it in the hospital and recommended that we have a Dr. there clip his frenulum (this is the piece of tissue that attaches the tongue to the floor of the mouth.) We had an ENT clip it when he was 2 days old while we were still in the hospital. Our Pediatrician said that his frenulum is still pretty tight but he did not recommend cutting it further. He thinks that he will learn to nurse correctly over time so we are going to be patient with that. :)
He was 8 pounds 4 ounces today, just 3 ounces away from his birth weight. He really likes to eat!
So far (I am SO hesitant to say this) he such an easy going, laid back baby. I love the few times a day when he is awake for 20 minutes or so after a feeding. I just gaze into his sweet eyes and thank God for the blessing that he is.
Here are a few pics of our one week old little boy.
