Aiden: 1 Week old.

My son has HUGE feet.
Coco is doing GREAT with the little mister.  We feel like she's been a little neglected by us though. (sad face)

My little chubby mister (only in pictures he looks chubby)

Getting his Tan on.

Story time with daddy. "Playing for Pizza"


Daddy in the chair bed

1 Week old. I know this is a lame picture, but it was all I could get!

What a week...No seriously WHAT A WEEK!!!

We missed his 2 day old doctor's appointment bc both Joel and I have pregnant brain (yes, Dads get it too when they are up all night with their laboring wife!), but were able to reschedule for Monday. Oh Monday.

Monday: doctor's appointment.  Baby looks kind of yellow.  take him to get blood tests. his bilirubin levels are high enough for hospitalization.  Mommy cries.  Pack for 3 days. Nurses are amazing on the Peds floor. Aiden gets his 'tan' on. yaya rubs liver pressure point and talks to you while mommy & daddy try to rest/relax.

Tuesday: Mommy & Daddy take turns (or try to sleep together) on a fold out chair. this is uncomfortable, but we do it. Mom pumps breastmilk bc baby can't come out of bed. Bilirubin levels have dropped, but not enough to go home. Nana & Papa come to visit. Nana interrogates all the nurses (she approves of most of them).  Mommy & Daddy run home for a shower.

Wednesday: Baby is 1 week old! Daddy falls asleep in parent room with all the lights and T.V. on. Bilirubin levels drop enough to go home! yay! but we have to come back in a few days. We go home, exhausted.

Thursday & Friday & Saturday & Sunday are a blur or Doctor's appointments for Mommy and baby.

Other highlights:
  • umblical cord falls off (this seems early, but docs say it happens)
  • Aiden gives me a huge smile...melted my heart.
  • I won a giveaway from Oh Dear Drea. Won the full line of Vegan baby bath supplies (we love them)
  • Aiden learns first baby sign.  When he is finished eating (we try to give him more and he doesn't want it) he puckers his top lip and juts out his bottom lip- it is totally adorable.
