He has a fair amount of dark brown hair and the perfect little features of an angelic newborn.
He has had a bit of an issue with some high bili levels which in turn have caused some extra-sleepless nights but he seems to have turned the corner and his levels are dropping now instead of rising so we are hoping that the near-constant feedings can be reduced after Tuesday.
My mom and dad have been here to help and I must say that they have indeed been a Godsend!!! I cannot imagine what I would have done last week without them. I'm not quite sure how I will ever be able to show them or let them know how much I appreciate their sacrifices in coming all the way up here and in working so hard to help take care of me and my family. Maybe that is the nature of children--we never really appreciate the extent to which our parents sacrifice and love their children--at least until we have children of our own and begin to make sacrifices of our own.
I certanly am enjoying this new little baby though. Knowing that this is my last, I am a little more conscious of the passing time and how fleeting it is and I hope that I will not worry about the hardships of a newborn and will just enjoy being with him, cuddling him, smelling him, kissing him and just loving him.
