one week

Well, we have survived one week at home with baby Lincoln.  Hooray!

I took him back to the pediatrician last Friday and he had gained 1.5 ounces in a day, so there was no more concern about his weight.

He is doing really well… sleeping 2-3 hours at a time.. So, while I certainly am not getting a full night of sleep, as long as I get a few 2 hour chunks of rest, I feel pretty good.

Unfortunately, my in-laws had to head back to Illinois abruptly yesterday morning.  They were both so helpful, taking care of little things around the house, letting me get some rest when Lincoln was napping, running random errands for us, etc.  We miss them terribly, but hope they can come back and visit baby Lincoln again very soon.

Lincoln loves Nani & Popi

My Dad is planning to come out to visit sometime in June and I can’t wait for him to meet the little guy!

I’m hoping to figure out this Moby wrap that I got to carry Lincoln in… it’s basically a big piece of fabric that you wrap and twist around you so that you can carry baby close to you, but hands free.  If I can figure it out, I’m going to take little Lincoln for a walk around the neighborhood this week.  We have an appointment next Friday for his 2 week check up… Other than that, we will just be hanging out at home 🙂

sweet little boy…
