Don't Let That Baby Face Fool You!

Today was our first visit with Dr. Black, Zachary's pediatrician. Everything checked out wonderfully.  The doctor took the time to get quite a few questions answered and catch up on all Zach has been through to this point.   She was very pleased with his progress, and answered some of our questions about Zachary's clubbed feet.  She has two young children who both had clubbed feet, so she has quite a bit of experience with casting, and recovery.  We are scheduled to meet with the orthopedist later this week.  
Zachary decided to revert back to some of his old "bad" habits today and  peed when we were trying to weigh him, sans diaper (7lbs. 8oz.).  As if that were not enough, he faked Daddy out by trying to poop while having his diaper changed, and when he noticed that end was covered, he decided to pee all over instead! He's just toying with us now.  We're "covering" all of our bases, but give him a small opening and he'll take advantage.  
As for the sleep/feed schedule, things went MUCH better last night.  We made sure to feed him as much as he would take, and added a cluster feed around 8pm.  He slept until 11, then until 2:30, and again until 8am, giving Mommy and Daddy some nice extended sleep times of 3-5 hours.  He had a very busy day today with the pediatrician visit and a trip to the store.  His first extended car trip went pretty well, but he stayed awake for a majority of the afternoon.  After his dinner feeding he went straight to sleep and hopefully will continue his peaceful, restful ways for the rest of the night.  With much Love, Thanks, and Praise - Brian + Kimmie
