He's growing!

Cooper is two weeks old today! Yesterday Cooper went in for his two week check-up. After losing 8 oz initially, he gained 13 oz. and a half inch in length in just one week. I was just hoping he would have gotten back to his birth weight (7 lbs, 6 oz.), but NO! He is now 7 lbs, 13 oz! It's no wonder he gets fussy...we can't keep that boy fed! Other than his seemingly endless appetite, Cooper is such a good baby! He is very alert and happy and likes kicking his feet and trying to lift his head.
Mom and Dad are tired, since Cooper likes to wake up every two hours (sometimes sooner) to eat! Last night he slept for 4 hours in a row...TWICE! We are hoping that we are turning a corner, and that wasn't some kind of fluke, but I guess we will see how much sleep we get in the next few days.
Here is Cooper on his 2 week birthday, doing the airplane in his sleep.

We're so glad he's here. Glad to hear you got a little more sleep last night. I promise it get better!:) I think my body just eventually got used to not having as much sleep.
