Last night went fairly well for all 3 of us. Zachary fed and slept in 3 hour blocks, so Mommy and Daddy we able to get a little bit of sleep (although Mommy got less because she's the key to the feeding). Zachary fed this morning around 6 and decided he didn't want to sleep anymore, so Daddy rocked him and occupied his time for a couple hours while Mommy got to sleep for a bit longer.
Our in house nurse arrived around 9 and gave Zachary a thorough examination, which he passed with flying colors. Zach now weighs 7lbs. 4oz., almost a full pound heavier than his birth weight! The Nurse is pretty confident he will be just fine until his pediatrician appointment on Monday, so she cancelled tomorrow's visit.
After getting a little attention, Zachary decided it was time to head back to dreamland, and slept for a while longer. Crystal and Meghan stopped by and brought lunch (thank you to them, it was wonderful), then Jodee, Mark, and Mark's Mother stopped by for a short visit. It was a pretty busy house, but Zachary slept through it all, and had to be woken up for his afternoon feeding. He ate quite a bit, then dozed off yet again. He is still sleeping as we write, so let's just hope he does not stay awake all night! He has been eating wonderfully, and obviously, has been sleeping, and his overall adjustment to life at home has been successful so far.
Tomorrow we will have Zachary's Christmas, and a bath! Big plans for the little guy! Until then wish Mommy luck, she has Zach all to herself tonight with Daddy off to work. Love to You All - Brian + Kimmie
