Fynnlan Seeley- 3 Weeks

3 Weeks Old

Our precious Fynnlan is 3 weeks old today! I can't believe another week has already passed! I am so grateful for God's grace during this time of transition and having a newborn.  I have been surprisingly calm and collected through it all and my days taking care of 2 littles has been extremely smooth.  I know it won't always be like that, I know there will be days where Daniel Tiger is running all morning long while I curl up in a ball of tears on the couch haha, but for now, I am thankful for God's provision in this new season, and we are rocking it so far! 

Here's the latest on Fynn:

Eating

Fynn pretty well eats every 3 hours around the clock! We were cluster feeding in the evening last week, but we stopped doing that because it was just too difficult to try and do that and make and eat dinner too!  Plus he wasn't having enough time to nap in the evening either.

Sleep

During the day, he still does pretty well.  After his 5:00 feeding, he does not like to nap and will often stay awake until bedtime at 8:30, yikes!! But hey, at least it's not during the middle of the night that he's awake for that stretch! Nights are all over the place. On the rare and glorious nights, he just wakes up long enough to eat and then goes right back to sleep.  One night he even went a 4 stretch!  That was amazing! But unfortunately that's not the norm haha.  Normally, he wakes up about 30 minutes before it's time to eat and ends up snuggling with me until he's hungry.  Then after his 5:00am feeding, he has a hard time going back down.  So most nights, we are up a lot with him. I am trying to just enjoy the snuggles, because I know they are fleeting and eventually the sleep will come!

Milestones
