So Much Better!

I didn’t post anything over the weekend because I was too busy being consumed with maternal guilt.  When we took Brooks to his pediatrician’s appointment Saturday morning, we discovered we had been starving him.  (Ah– THAT explains the crying jags that were so different from his first 24 hours.)   He had dropped from a birth weight of 8 lbs all the way down to 6 lbs 12 oz, which was understandably alarming.  We were sent home with instructions for supplementing with formula through syringe feeding every 2 hours.  As soon as we got the first dose of formula in him, he absolutely became the most quiet, calm baby again.  It’s been so nice.  And even nicer is that we just had our follow-up appointment this morning and he already is back up to 7 lbs 10 oz.  Hooray!

So now that I’m not completely anxious about his health, let’s check out some Baboo pics…

His first visitors were Gen, Drew, and Ethan “Thor” Sogn who brought us a scrumptious lasagna dinner on our first night back.  Check out Ethan eyeing little Brooks here.  I’m sure Brooks is also eyeing Ethan’s awesome Cookie Monster suit but it’s hard to tell for sure.

And here we have Grandma (Seth’s mom) and Seth checking out the Brookster.  Lots of checking out going on these days.

Last night, Kathy and Joel brought us a warm and hearty dinner of chicken and dumplings.  So yummy!

And finally, here’s our little 7 lb 10 oz boy now:
