The First Few Days





Adapting to home has been going pretty well. The girls really like him. Kenzie wants to give him a "miss" (kiss) all the time. They are both being gentle, although there still seems a need to protect the little guy as they crawl around trying to get closer to him or me. Kenzie actually seems to be easier since we arrived home. Abigail wants to help and hold him. I am pleased with how both girls have responded, so far. It has been amazing having Jeremy at home, and I'm imagining doing it by myself and am intimidated by the future. The girls still need a lot, and when I have him upset and them needy, it shall be interesting. He is a pretty easy baby thus far. He has a real needy time beginning in the evening and continuing throughout the night - until 1-3 AM. However, he then gives us a decent chunk of sleep - about 5 hours. During the day, he has been pretty quiet and easy. I can tell he wants to just suck on things, which makes a pacifier tempting, but we are trying to hold off a bit. He has been a bit jaundice, so it has meant a doctor visit daily. Today (4 days old), his readings have leveled off, so he is in the clear. Some of the pictures above were when we were sitting him in the warm window as the sun shone in. We have been sleeping OK - better, for me, than when I was pregnant. Oh - and on that note, it feels so good to be not pregnant, as the end of the pregnancy was just way too uncomfortable. I loving this little guy. I just love to hold him and stare at him. What a wonderful addition and a huge blessing.
