beau is two weeks

The first two weeks of Beau have FLOWN by! I noticed pretty much 1.2 seconds after his birth that he was going to be very different than his big sister-and so far he is. He is a noisy little pig!!!! Tessa has always been a dainty little girl- small appetite, quiet, minds her manners (for the most part) 
Beau is loud- makes crazy noises all day and ALL night, he is the hungriest little thing, eats all the time, and eats like a sloppy pig;)

OH BOYS!!!..... 
At Beau's two week check-up he was back up to his birth weight
8 pounds 10 oz
and had grown maybe a quarter of an inch to 21.25 inches
He is NOT into baths 
He HATES getting his diaper changed
He pretty much sleeps all day
He eats 3-4 times a night.
I am contemplating kicking him out of our room even sooner than Tess (she was 7 weeks) because he is seriously that loud when he sleeps.

cant believe he is almost 1 month now, but here are some pics from the first couple weeks.

Beau is here!

We are so happy that Beau is here and healthy and a part of our fam. So so thankful for his debut. We are loving his sweet little personality so far. Here are the stats on the day he arrived.
Beau came 5 days early, which I suppose I kind of expected.... or maybe just hoped for. Either way I was glad he came when he did because we were READY!! It all started at 6:00 am on Tuesday December 4. contractions started coming every 7 minutes which quickly turned into every 5 minutes very quickly. We decided we Joey should go to work and I would call him when it was time to leave. It was maybe 45 minutes when I called him saying he needed to come home. We headed to the hospital and once we got there I was decidedly in labor and 5 centimeters dilated. we cozied up in our hospital room around 9:30. Fast forward several hours when Beau was born at 4:00pm on the dot and weighed in at 8 pounds 10 oz and was 21 inches long. Here are some pictures of our little boy...
