Newborn Check Up

Cohen had his newborn wellness check yesterday at Dr. Best’s office in Marseilles and it went surprisingly well.  I (Madison) was pretty concerned as I know babies tend to cry when they are naked in a cold doctor’s office being poked and prodded…not our son, though, he was a champ!  He currently weighs in at 7 lbs 6 oz and is still 19 inches long with a head circumference of 35 cm.  Being a fan of his changing table at home, he found the changing table/scale to be the Cadillac of all changing tables and made himself right at home.  Grandma Michele went with us to the appointment and it was great to have her there because she was able to give Cohen a bottle and keep him pacified while I asked Dr. Best the one thousand questions that Tim and I had prepared!  I felt a lot more comfortable after leaving his appointment, having so many of my questions answered and my own worries pacified!

Today we’ve had a remarkably lazy day after so much running around yesterday.  After the doctor’s appointment, we took our first trip to Walmart together, in which Cohen slept through entirely!  He was such a good boy…I was actually jealous of him being able to sleep in the cart through a trip to Walmart.  It sounds like a pretty sweet deal to me.

Tonight we will be ringing in the New Year – assuming we can stay awake that long.  It will be the first time in a long time that Tim and I will stay in on New Year’s.  This decade has shaped up to be a really good one!  Considering I don’t remember starting the ’90s, it’s been fun remembering where I was when I rang in 2000 and where we are now!  I’m guessing the next decade will be full of just as much excitement for us and we are really looking forward to it!

We hope that everyone has a fun and safe New Year’s!

Tim, Madison, Moe and Cohen

    He sure likes to stretch out!!!! Too funny. Like the other night when he settled right down when you changed him on my table, Mad. He’s a sweetie and I just can’t get enough of him (but I’m also not up all night with him!!!)
