One week

JAtlas is about a week old and, honestly, he’s been pretty chill. Jen has been an amazing mother and has aced the caregiver role. I’m not very useful beyond getting chores done and occasionally bringing food or beverage to Jen.

Here’s Mom & Dad D with JAtlas:


Jen and I are just about falling into a rhythm now. The nights are occasionally tough, but not at all what I had originally expected. Most of the time (day or night) he sleeps and his cries are only as long as it takes us to either feed him or clean him.

I’ve heard that this phase doesn’t last long and that weeks 6-8 can get really rough, but at least for now we’ve simply been enjoying the quiet cuteness.

    I’m so glad things are going well for you guys. Honestly if your baby is eating and gaining weight well and letting you get a little bit of rest, newborns are kinda, well, boring. But you know cute and snuggly and I wouldn’t trade them yadadada but you know they don’t do much yet. Best wishes for continued success in the chill baby department!
