I planned to blog last night after Elias went to sleep for the evening, but ended up catching up on some email and then going to bed. He is such a good sleeper. We have to wake him for most of his feedings. Here he is an hour or so before bed, wide-awake.
Below are a few pics we took yesterday morning, before Mom and Melissa drove back to Wisconsin. Elias is a little jaundice, so we have been spending some time in the sun to help eliminate it, per our pediatrician’s instructions. He looks red in the pics, but I think he was just warm, though we hadn’t been out there very long. We saw the pediatrician yesterday and his bilirubin number had gone down and we don’t have to do the bili lights – yea!
Matthew is so cute with Elias. Today he got to feed him for the first time, as my milk came in and I pumped a bottle. How cute are they?
We have been adjusting quite well. Yes, I have been trying to sleep when he sleeps. Today, I successfully did this two times and feel kind of rested, which is a good feeling. I also went out for the first time since pre-delivery today, but that is another blog post… it will be worth the wait.
I did want to get a few things done around the house today, but that didn’t happen. However, that’s okay, right? (Many of you HAVE advised that, so I am trusting you!)
I’m going to try to get dinner started while Elias naps, as it is almost time for another feeding (they sure come up fast!)
