good to go

I figured I better stop by and let you know how we're doing. Things are still going well! B looooves his sleep. We're having to wake him up to eat around the clock. Joey and I are getting pretty well rested at night, but it's not quite as nice as 8 straight hours of sleep. I wouldn't trade this kid for all the sleep in the world though, he's sooo worth it.

When we left the hospital Friday, B was down to 7 lbs 4 oz. Our pediatrician (who is AWESOME) wasn't too concerned with his weight loss (down from 7 lbs 11 oz. at birth) but had us schedule an appointment for Monday just to check his weight and see how he's doing. So yesterday we went and he was down to 7 lbs 1 oz. We were working through some feeding issues so it was understandable, but the doc had us come back in today. And we're happy to report that our little chunky monkey was up to 7 lbs 3.5 oz today... which means he gained 2.5 oz in 24 hours - way more than the .5 - 1 ounce average for this point in his life. Yay! Such a relief and now we don't have to go back for 3 weeks!

Now we're just ready for some nice weather so we can go for a walk! I really need to get out of the house, but when it's 15 degrees out, multiple trips outside with a newborn probably aren't the best idea. And liable to give the grandmas a heart attack.

That's about all for now. Hope you're well!
