News...Proverbs 25:25

We are doing fine, but we all haven't quite mastered the art of multitasking. Between feedings, diaper changes, and much needed rest periods, blogging hasn't been a priority.

At one week, G's weight was back up to 7 lbs., 8 ozs. At two weeks he was 7 lbs., 14 ozs., and last Saturday he weighed 8 lbs. 4 ozs. We did take him to the hospital a week ago on Sunday to have his bilirubin checked. It was over 15 with the scan and blood test. Very high, but not high enough to start treatment. His color has improved tremendously. I may stop by and have him scanned again today while we are up in the city just to see how far it has come down. (The preceding paragraph is more for my own information than yours...this may the closest thing G will have for a baby book!)

Night times are pretty good with G usually going down between 10-11 and waking up at 2-3 a.m. and again at 5-6. Last night he went down at about 11 and didn't wake up until 5:30.

This is a photo I took this morning of S and G. Obviously some of us are learning to multitask...
G is awake again and wanting to eat. Hope you all have a Merry Christmas (just in case I don't get back here before then!) and a Happy New Year!

Oh, he is so cute. He reminds me of J when he was a baby. I was wondering how you were doing. Looking forward to seeing you guys soon. Sounds like G is a good little baby.

I'm sure your house is quite busy. I sure hope you do have time to blog and keep us updated before January.

Looking forward to visiting Cecelia and Bob this weekend with my friend.

See I'm not the only one who thinks G looks like J did--especially in this sweet pose with S. Wish I could hold him while multitasking. Great job to S.

The best kind of multi-tasking is when you are holding a newborn! That photo is wonderful!

Glad to hear things are going well. Sounds like G is on the right track to sleeping through the night quickly. My little guy waited 8 months to start doing that.
