First off, I cannot believe that Malachi has been here for a week already! Shane has two weeks off of work to spend with us at home, and it has been the greatest in the world to see him bond with his son, and have the ability to spend more time with our other 4 kids at home as well!
He had his first check-up which went great. The Doctor did a head to toe exam and everything checked out just fine, no concerns were noted at this time. He also wanted to make sure he was gaining back the little bit of weight that he had lost at the hospital, and it turns out that he had gained all the weight back and then some! He now weighs 8 pounds 1 oz. and still 19 1/4 inches long. He stated that overall he was a healthy little boy and that he will see us in two weeks for his PKU follow up.
Let me tell you, Malachi is a great eater, great sleeper, and such a laid-back child! I know this is just newborn bliss, but I am loving every single minute of it! All of the kids are loving having a baby brother as well, and it’s so cute to watch each of them develop their own personal bond and relationship with him!
I wanted to share some pictures I have taken this last week, since I want to remember Malachi this small, forever! I know even in a few weeks his looks will change, and he will start to fill out, so I definitely wanted to make sure I captured all these sweet moments now! ♥
FYI my boys have to be blurred due to them being in foster care and it’s to protect their privacy! 🙂
Thank you ALL for your sweet comments on our surprise (gender wise) baby boy! We are so blessed and thankful to have him!
