Kanyon was dying to help feed him and of course Scarlett was too. Kanyon did a great job and I could see some real pluses in pumping because I could get lots done while Kanyon helped me out there. He seemed to really enjoy it too and he's big enough that I didn't really worry about Cohen.
With Scarlett, however, it actually ended up being quite the struggle. She did not want any help whatsoever, but had a hard time holding the bottle just right, so there were a few tears in all the help I had. ;) She was so pleased with herself, however... it was sweet.
I'm sure lucky that my kids are such good helpers. Both jump at the chance to run and get a diaper or wipes for me. I took all 3 to my chiropractor appointment yesterday morning (yes, I know... crazy, but I didn't have much of a choice) and Kanyon and Scarlett were both so good to put Cohen's binky in whenever he started to fuss in his carseat.
They love him so much... and I love to see the relationships they have with each other.
Cohen had his 2 week appointment on Monday and is a whopping 7 lbs. 10 oz. and 19 3/4 inches long... hmm, pretty sure he hasn't shrunk since the hospital at 20 inches. ;) I had to laugh at that! He is growing perfectly and his jaundice is slowly going away. He's 30th percentile for weight and 25th percentile for length and head circumference. I wonder if he'll chunk up like Kanyon did...
