My First Bath

Freddie in his Winnie the Pooh tub
I got in a mess again, so Mummy and Daddy set up my Winnie the Pooh bath tub. It was a bit strange at first, but I think I liked sitting in the warm water.

Two Weeks Old

Mummy burping Freddie
I am two weeks old today. Early this morning my umbilical stump fell off so my belly button looks much cuter now. I always seem to be hungry. I'm knocking back the white stuff every couple of hours.

Birth Certificate

Big cheeks like Daddy when he was a baby
Today Mummy & Daddy collected my birth certificate, so now I am a real Californian. They also managed to squeeze in an appointment to get me a US passport, so hopefully I'll be able to visit all of my family in England soon. I had to pose nicely for the camera, but it always adds 10lbs, which is a lot when you are only 8lbs to begin with!

Sponge Bath

Freddie wrapped up in his duck towel
I got myself into a bit of a mess today, so Mummy and Daddy gave me a sponge bath. I didn't like that bit so much, but I love my duck towel.

Hand and Foot Prints

Christmas decoration casts of Freddie's hand and foot
Mummy and Daddy were sneaky today. While I was sleepy after eating, they took some casts of my hand and foot prints. They also took ink prints. One of the casts is of our index fingers, Mummy's left, Daddy's right and my right.

Don't I Look Cute When I'm Asleep?

Fingers by his face
Mummy, Daddy and I didn't do much today. I think they were just staring at me all day in amazement.

Chinese Food

Freddie on his changing mat
We went to another Doctor today to see if I had gained any weight yet. She said I was 8lbs 9oz now, so either I just didn't stop eating today or something was wrong with those scales yesterday! Tonight Mummy & Daddy went out for Chinese food. I mostly just watched, then pooped when I got home.

First Outing

I had to see the Doctor today to see if everything was OK on my first day home. She said I had lost too much weight and needed to eat more since I was only 7lbs 4oz. but I think I'm eating a lot already!
Freddie in his bassinet
Afterwards we went to the shops because Mummy likes to buy me nice things. After all that I was tired, so I went to sleep in my bassinet.

I'm Tiny

Freddie's foot and Daddy's finger
Still in the hospital while Mummy gets better. Seems like I've got some growing to do since Daddy's finger is bigger than my foot!
