Happy TwoWeek-Day

Jack is two weeks old today. We feel this is quite a milestone. In two weeks, Jack has learned how to do the following things:
  1. Breath
  2. Cry
  3. Nurse
  4. See
  5. Burp
  6. Hiccup
  7. Stretch
  8. Poop
  9. Pee on dad at every diaper change
  10. Move his limbs in all directions
  11. Tell us he's hungry
  12. Tell us he needs to burp
  13. Tell us he wants to be held
  14. Shed his skin
  15. Lose his umbilical cord
  16. Bob his head up and down
  17. Roll onto his side
  18. Get out of a baby burrito
  19. Lose the silly hat and socks
  20. Make the dogs all but disappear
  21. Produce visitors at our door in what feels like 30 second intervals
  22. Keep two adults completely, totally devoted to his happiness and well-being
We celebrated his TwoWeek-Day by visiting a guilty pleasure of B.C. (Before Child): waffles for breakfast.

This is the photo from my original blog post about it:

This is the photo from the waffles I attempted this morning:

So I fired up our largest skillet and we had pancakes instead. Do you think it's a sign? Over here in New Jack Haven, we roll with the pancake punches ;)

*It turns out that my favorite waffle recipe makes superb pancakes -- the oil makes them crispy.

Jack slept for nearly 5 hours last night. Then he stayed awake, alert and wanting to interact, for 3 full hours this afternoon. The we played the "I'm too hungry to sleep but too sleepy to eat" game for another 1.5 hours. Either, he's going to sleep a ton tonight, or we're going to be miserable. Wish us luck!
