My chubby, happy, sleepy update...

We had our well baby doctor's visit today, and our little guy is just perfect! He not only reached his birth weight, but had added an extra 4 ounces. He is now 8 lbs 3 oz. So the doctor said I can let him sleep longer at night between feedings if he doesn't wake up to eat (yay) since he's OBVIOUSLY gaining weight just fine. He doesn't even have to go back for a 2 week check up. Here is a photo overload to update you all. Thanks for all your help and phone calls. We love and appreciate you!


Here is our Rajko boy after his first bath at home. I think he is the most handsome perfect boy ever...of course!

Rajko likes to sleep, A LOT! I have to wake him up to eat so he doesn't starve because he likes to sleep so much. I hope this pattern continues as he gets older and can sleep even longer without eating at night :)

Noah thought it was so hilarious to have Rajko look like a Sith Lord. I also found it quite humorous :)

Rajko's first bath at home with Grandma...washing his hair is the only part he does like. He despises getting his diaper changed, getting his clothes changes, or anything similar. So obviously, the bath is not his favorite. Hopefully when it's a real bath in water he'll like it more!

This baby has no bum. If you know Noah and I, I'm sure you can understand why I believe this will change!!!

Rajko's arrival home...I think he looks so tiny in his carseat, but I don't want him to grow and get big. He's too cute the way he is now, and I just want time to stand still!

Our saving grace! My mom is here and will be until the 21st. She is keeping everyone WELL fed, happy, and calm. She's seriously the best and I think I'm going to have a total meltdown when she leaves. Rajko also already loves her, and she can always get his calmed down and get out the burps and gas bubbles that I can't seem to get rid of! Mommy, I LOVE YOU!

Aunt Chelsea and Uncle Max also came to visit, which was so awesome. She was here to help us get home from the hospital before my mom got here, and seriously helped me keep my head during those first couple of crazy days...

Uncle Rob holding Rajko. He would tell him things that we told him to, like how cute he was or that he had pretty eyes, but it about broke my heart when he went to hand him back to me and told him, "I love you." I love Rob so much and I'm so glad he's here to swim (in the freezing pool) and meet the baby. I hope he's having fun here...

Rajko really likes being burped. He will hang out in this position all day!

I just thought his picture was so funny...this is the hearing test Rajko took before leaving the hospital. He was really enjoying whatever they were playing for him!

He is so adorable! I love all the pics. I'm glad everything went well with the delivery and you're home safe with that cute little babe.

Giselle, your new baby boy is BEAUTIFUL! He has such a handsome little face. I hope you are enjoying every minute with him. Take care!

Chelsea Johnson said...

Yes, more pics of that adorable boy!!! I seriously miss him and you guys! I can't believe he's already gained that much weight! Waht a good mommy/feeder you are. He sounds a lot like Jack was as far as the eating/sleeping goes, and Jack did continue to be a good sleeper and slept through the night really early!

I was so glad we got to be there with you guys. I think thats the most time I have spent with Noah, and I have to say, I can definitely see why you married him! He's a great guy and is going to be a great Daddy!

PLEASE---bring that boy up here!! Or I guess we could make the LONG journey back. Although I drove home and shaved almost an hour off our time!

He really is an adorable little boy! Good work! I am glad you posted more pics!

The DiStefano Family said...

Oh duh, I was going to say one more thing...Everytime I open your blog it has a box pop up and says "Internet explorer cannot open the Internet site http://noahandgiselle.blogspot.com/. Operation aborted" and then it kicks me out and says This page cannot be displayed. I have to try and open it like 4 times before it will work. Anyway just thought maybe you could tell me what the deal is. Maybe other people have this problem too...?

Ahhh...Chelsea, I thought I tried to take care of the characteristic of the right foot weighing much more than the left foot. I know I tried to put ALL of my children's right foot on a diet to avoid the speeding tendency! I thought your husbands had been able to have an impact on that as well, but perhaps NOT!!!
Yes, Rajko is a doll! And, I might add, he does love Grandma (except when he really DOES want something to eat!!!). New babies are such miracles! Every time we introduce a new member of our family, I am awestruck by the intelligence and organization of our Heavenly Father's plan. What a miracle ..... and I am so thankful!

Too cute for words my dear! :) He is a handsome little angel from heaven. :) I am so happy for you. He is such a sweetheart! :)

Rasheta Family said...

Giselle,
He is so adorable. I love his little face it is honestly perfect!! I am so excited for you and Noah! Charish every moment because it goes by way to fast!!!

Jody said...

He is such a handsome little guy! I'm glad all is well. I hope you are able to make a quick recovery.

(I too, occasionally...not regularly, have the same problem when opening your blog--as described above. It started for me after the hearing test post. I just chalked it up to my computer getting old.)

McNeil Family said...

Oh I love that little chubba face baby!!! I love him love him love him! I wish we could see and hold him in person, but it's probably better not too since Evan has his first ear infection and I would never want such a tiny little guy to be sick like our big huge child. Seeing pics of tiny Rajko makes me realize our child is HUGE. HUGE. How did this happen? Anyway, love the update, love the babe.

Billie Jo said...

Ok for the record I usually get that same message when I get on to your blog. I started for me once that message of habla espanol was put on your blog. I have to go back and try to do it again and again.
I can't even wait to hold that baby and give him so love. He does have chubby cheeks for being a little babe. He will probably be walking by the time I get there. Man it is killing me not to have seen hime in person!

The Gunnerson Family said...

What a beautiful baby. I love to see the pictures, and I swear I can almost smell that sweet baby smell. I hope that sometime soon you guys will make it up here so I can see him in person! Meet me halfway in St. George. Okay, that's not really halfway, but we could work it out.

The Richards family said...

I think the vote is in favor of you coming to Kamas so we can all see that cute baby!! Way to go Noah and Giselle, he really is adorable!!!

Liesel Marsing said...

Congratulations! You're baby boy is adorable! Good luck being a new mommy. It's tiring sometimes, but totally worth it!

Giselle and Noah Rasheta said...

Billie Jo, I think you've done it! It's the habla.chat feature that is probably giving some of you problems. I'll ask Noah to remove it from the blog, since we almost never use it anyway. Thanks!!

Our Family said...

I love the new pictures! He is so so cute! My mom says he is adorable!! Don't you love being a mom!!

Marchant Family said...

Congrats you guys, he's adorable! All the sleepless nights are so worth it!! Hope everything is going great, keep the pictures coming.

Reagan & Mike said...
