8 weeks old

Joshua is now 8 weeks old, and has been home for 10 days! We are adjusting to life as a family of 3, and both of us, though very tired, are thoroughly enjoying our new son.

Joshua can hold his head up very well! Here's a picture of him doing just that:

He's been welcomed with 2 parties so far, and 2 more to come. The first was at Grandma and Grandpa's house in Fond du Lac. He got to meet all of his great aunts and uncles and we took both 4-generation pictures with Chris's family.

We also had a shower today for the Meixner side of the family as well as many friends from work, church, and life. I cannot believe how many clothes my son has!! Way more than Chris or I do.

We had our first post-placement visit with our social worker on Thursday. We talked for a while about adjustment and what to expect next, and she was very helpful. We meet with her again around Christmas for a 3-month check.

Joshua has his 2 month well-baby check on Monday, October 6. I expect him to weigh at least 13 pounds. He's growing like a weed. Sleeping pretty well, and eating a lot too. I think he's been going through a growth spurt, because he's been sleeping most of the day and at night too.
