Happy New Year and new Baby

by Anise Flowers


Baby Tucker turned 3 weeks old yesterday!  He is happy and growing well.  At his 2 week doctor's visit, he was at the 73rd percentile for weight and 99th for height (very long limbs!).  I am spending my days and nights breastfeeding my little "hungry hippo" (it seems his mouth is always open wide...)  Then when he falls asleep, I make the big decision about whether to feed myself, sleep, or the luxury choice -- take a shower!  Tucker is a very sweet baby and generally just cries to say he is hungry.  He sleeps through all kinds of noises, including Bobby's loud barking.  I am thoroughly enjoying motherhood and feel so blessed by this time that we have together.  Here are a few pictures from his life so far.
