Happy Two Weeks!

Walker is officially two weeks old today! Yey! Today we decided to try on his "Habesha libs"--his traditional Ethiopian clothes. Good thing we did it today because it doesn't look like they will fit for very long. This is a cute little outfit that some dear friends in Ethiopia gave us when we visited in May. They are adorable!

We tried the outfit on right after bath time, which is not Walker's favorite time. Hopefully he will grow to like baths more over time.
It's strange how he is tiny and big at the same time. So maybe he is big compared to some other newborns, but he is still so little. He looks really long in some photos, so we're hopeful that he will be tall like daddy!
Somehow Walker has long hands and feet. We aren't sure where they came from since we both have smaller hands and feet (at least mine were before pregnancy!).
Here's his cute little profile. We are still trying to figure out who's different features he has. He definitely looks a lot like daddy's baby pics.
Walker loves to be swaddled. These swaddler blanket things come in quite handy! They make it so easy, especially at 2 a.m. when he is fussy and we are trying to get him to sleep. If you remember a popular toy in the 80's, you'll hopefully recognize that he looks like a Glow Worm in this lime green swaddler.

Jamie and Matt.... He is so beautiful. Glad you all are doing well. Your bodies will adjust to the lack of sleep soon and you will get a routine down. Enjoy every minute of this newborn stage. We love you three...

Yay for swaddling!! It is the best. Maybe Walker won't need swaddling as long as Cade did. Well- it was more like we need swaddling for that long. Seeing him makes me want another little one. Cade is getting way to big. We love y'all.

Hmm....he looks like he's going to have good court vision and a good shooting touch.
