3 Weeks

Rhett is 3 weeks old! We went last week to his 2 week check-up and he weighs 9lbs. 5oz. He is an eating machine and is starting to fill out with some chubbiness on his thighs and definitely in his cheeks! He just moved up yesterday to a size 1 diaper.


Rhett LOVES his paci and HATES his car seat! When I say HATES, I mean HATES!!! He screams from the moment we put him in to the moment we take him out. Sometimes if he is asleep or if someone is back there shaking the seat and keeping his paci in, he will somewhat calm down. Other than that, riding in the car with him is pretty much a nightmare. Car line is fun, let me tell ya! Ha!


He is sleeping really great...so far. I usually feed him between 10:30pm-12am and he'll sleep until about 5am. He sometimes stirs around 3am, but I have been putting his paci in and he has been going back to sleep. I'm praying this sleep pattern continues.


He is definitely our easiest baby so far. Rarely cries (except in the car) and is very easy going. The older 3 have adjusted really well. They are all in love with him! Constantly wanting to hold and kiss him.


Conn and I are adjusting too. Ha! Having 4 kids has proven to be very difficult at times, but we are slowly getting the hang of it. Sometimes, we don't really know if we should laugh or cry. Thankfully, we choose laughter most of the time! Right now we are just trying to survive day by day! But, no matter how chaotic life may get, we never forget how truly blessed we are!

I'm going to come over and kiss those sweet chubby cheeks soon. He's a doll! Give all of those precious ones a big hug from me.

Oh, my goodness, the older Rhett gets the more he looks just like Cash. At least we got ONE that looks like our side of the family. We've got three Marlers and one McWhorter. Really they are ALL McWhorters!!! Can hardly wait to see the whole clan Thursday for Conn's birthday!
Love you all, Nanny
