Today Ethan is a little over two weeks old. Things take much longer to accomplish now that I have a dog AND a baby. A job that took me a little over two hours to do, like cleaning the house, now takes two days. TWO DAYS!
Our home nurse has been to our house three times now. (Having a visiting nurse is one of the perks about Denmark.) The nurse weighed him and we discovered that Ethan has been growing like a weed. (See picture.) This means that we don't have to wake up in the middle of the night and feed him every four hours. Yay! Aaron and I are sleep deprived but very happy. I haven't managed to nap during the day because either Chase or Ethan have had other plans. Hopefully this will change with more trips to the dog park.
Aaron and I went to the embassy today and applied for Ethan's passport and social security card. When Aaron headed to work, Ethan and I hopped the train up north (by ourselves!) and checked out the shopping center. I have been desperate for clothes because I only have maternity clothes over here. Nothing is worse than wearing baggy pregnancy clothes when you're not pregnant! We visited H&M and I bought enough to get by until Dad and Denise bring some clothes over in a couple of weeks.
My mom- and dad-in-law went home to Boston and we were very sad to see them go. We had a blast with them.
I am hoping to start blogging about future sewing projects. It might be awhile though!
