Current weight: 7 lbs 3 oz. Apparently he has no problem with eating as he has gained 1 lb 1 oz since his day four doctors visit (not sure if the doc's scale was right) and his initial loss to 6 lbs 2 oz. I do know this, he weighed in at 6 lb 7.5 oz at birth and now weighs 7 lbs 3 oz.
Billirubin - 14 on day four which is a bit high and slightly jaundice but expected around day four. Day six his Billirubin rang in a solid 9, showing that it was on the downswing and the jaundice is all but cleared up. It's a beautiful thing.
Connie is doing well. She is an amazing mom. She had a great teacher/mentor. As most know, it's hard to establish a schedule this early in the game, but with Me (Zack) returning to work in a week we're trying to get him as consistant as possible. When he sleeps we don't really want to wake him to feed, but we don't want to wait until he's crying due to hunger either. It's a fine balance that we have yet to master. Have we said how cute he is. . . precious.
