So Miran's two weeks old today, and all is going well. He has gained 9 oz. since last week and now weighs 6 lbs. 8 oz.--nice! We were actually slightly concerned that he wouldn't be gaining fast enough because he spits up after almost every "meal"--but apparently he's still getting plenty. The problem may be milk oversupply--that is, I am producing enough for a slew of babies, and it comes so fast and furious that his little stomach can't handle it all at once. This would also explain why he swallows so much air and is so gassy.
He's getting better and better at sustaining eye contact when he's awake, and he has great head/neck control (for a 2-week-old). We are welcoming the warmer weather and looking forward to taking him for more strolls in the park soon. Check back soon for new pictures/videos . . . !
