one week, one day

Our first week at home has been so great. It's been awesome having Nick home, and I get two more weeks with him here!

Our boyo is doing GREAT! We had another appointment this morning, and his biliruben levels have come down far enough that we don't have to have him on the light blanket anymore! It's so nice to have him wireless . . . :-) Notice the giant wire coming out the bottom of the blanket. It'll be nice to be able to get him up and down at night without having to reattach everything again.

They also weighed him, and he has already passed his birth weight! He was born at 6lbs 4oz, was down to 6lbs even by last Thursday, and today he was up to 6 lbs, 6.5 oz!! He's already getting big!! It's a huge relief to his mama to know that he's clearly getting enough to eat.

We gave him his first bath today - not a real bath, just a sponge bath. He didn't actually mind it that much! I should have known . . . nothing much fazes him so far.
