1 week Doctor's appointment

Nathan had his first doctor's appointment today! Dr. Greer said he looks great. He is still a little jaundiced, but he said a little sunshine can fix that! He weighed in at 6lbs 9oz. So he's lost a little weight, but that is normal. Actually, we had him weighed on Tuesday and he was 6lbs 4oz, so he is gaining weight back. We go back next week for just a weight check.
I think his appetite is growing though, because yesterday and last night he ate every hour to hour and a half. Needless to say, Brock and I are exhausted today.
This is Nathan's favorite way to sleep right now. He loves to be swaddled tightly and placed in the center of the Boppy!
Mom and Dad are coming down on Saturday and I can't wait for them to get here. Brock got suckered into working the LSU vs Auburn game. It's an opportunity that he really couldn't turn down. He is working with the ESPN Gameday crew and commentators. He is excited to meet them. I'm excited for him, that and the triple overtime Auburn offered him. Woo hoo!


  1. Congratulations on that precious baby boy! He is gorgeous! I see Micah in him. :) I am so happy for you two! I know that you are so excited! Children are truly a blessing from God! I can't wait to meet Mr. Nathan and see you two again!!!

    Take care!
    Love, April
