Over 9 pounds

So I finally got around to weighing Coen again. Clothed and with a nappy on he weighs 4.34kg, which is 9.5lbs. If he had gone full term he would have been a very big baby! At this same point Kaisha weighed 3.83kg or 8.4lbs, so a pound less than Coen.

We are settling into life as a family of four. Coen is having more awake time as you can see from these photos. He is/was due on this coming Sunday. Kaisha is also settling into her role as big sister. Her behaviour is back to normal and she doesn't bother me so much when I am feeding as long as I get her something to eat too. I do have to watch her with Coen and if I hear him crying it usually means she is trying to pick him up or move him by tugging on his arm or leg.

Kaisha goes to New Zealand this weekend with her Nana. She will be staying with my parents so will have all four grandparents doting on her. She will be away for 3 nights and 2 days. I'm getting quite nervous now that the weekend is getting closer!

Photo Overload

Its been a while since I last updated so this is a post of photos.
Coen is growing like a weed. He put on 1kg in his first month and now weighs 3.5kg.
Kaisha seems to have adapted a little more to not being the center of attention. She is starting to play by herself a bit more and isn't being so naughty, as long as she has had enough sleep.

Big Boy

We finally got around to weighing Coen on Monday. He has put on over 500g in 12 days and now weighs just over 3kg! Last night he finally went back to feeding every 3 to four hours but for the 24 hours prior he fed every 2 hours or less which was exhausting. I don't remember Kaisha ever being quite so hungry! Not sure if it is a result of those extra 2 weeks inside or just because he is a hungry boy.

Thought I would throw this photo in as its quite funny. Spot the baby!

I'm a big sister

Kaisha is loving playing with her little brother. She treats him like a doll but is pretty good at being gentle. Mum went home yesterday. So for the first time in 5 weeks i have to do the housework and cook. Horrors! Coen is having more awake time every day. He is just starting to cry a proper baby cry at 3 weeks old.
