Ammon's First Week

I can't believe it's already been a week since my little man made his grand arrival! Here are a few notes from the past several days...

Sunday, 10/19/14: Ammon's Birthday. Ammon was born at 9:59AM weighing in at 7 lbs 5 oz (2 oz smaller than Zariah's birthweight) and 21 inches long. He was 5 days early (Zariah was 5 days late), but we knew he wouldn't be waiting for his due date. After a short but very difficult delivery we spent the rest of the day in our hospital room attempting to recover. Ammon didn't cry at all.

Monday, 10/20/14: another day in the hospital. Ammon was not showing very good blood sugar levels so he had to have blood drawn every 4 hours, but never cried (part of his blood sugar problems required him to take nutritional supplements in the form of formula which made nursing a challenge). He received some vaccines, but still, no crying. He was circumcised, but you guessed it, no crying. We had several visitors.

Tuesday, 10/21/14: We came home from the hospital around noon. That night grandma and grandpa Zenger brought dinner over.

Wednesday, 10/22/14: We heard Ammon cry for the first time. It sounds more like a cat's meow than a baby cry.

Thursday, 10/23/14: Ammon rolled over. Yes, my 4-day old baby is rolling. At first we thought it was a fluke, so we watched again. He did it 4 times before we were finally convinced that he is doing it on purpose. Zariah was rolling over by the time she was 2 weeks old.

Friday, 10/24/14: Ammon is very strong. He always wants to be holding his head up.

Saturday, 10/25/14: Ammon and Zariah had some sibling pictures taken in the morning. Afterwards, Ammon met some of his cousins for the first time. Brooklyn, Isaac, and Jack love him and Zariah and are going to be great roll models for them.

Sunday, 10/26/14: Ammon lost his umbilical cord, graduating him to big-boy-bath status. He absolutely loved his first bath. Zariah was a lot the same way when she was a baby.
