Our first week....

This week has been full of ups and downs. It started out a little rough on Saturday and Sunday as we found out that Alex was not getting enough to eat. Thankfully by Sunday evening all was better in that department and it seemed like someone brought us a brand new baby. The tears had stopped and he began sleeping and eating. We've had my mom here all week to help out during the nights and thankfully feed us in the evenings as well. Kent went back to work on Wednesday, so he is spending time with Alex in the evenings when he gets home. On Thursday, Alex had his first doctor's appointment and decided to perform for both the nurse and doctor by soaking the exam room. From the wall to the floor to the table, everything was wet. oops! Then on Friday, he had visits from Great Grandma, Grandpa, Aunt Shannon, and cousin Claire. He decided to stay awake for most of their visit so they got to see his eyes. We'll see what the weekend brings, but it seems like he is adjusting well to life outside the womb. Here are a few pictures for your enjoyment.

too cute! Jared's grandparents bought a few boy outfits after he was born, the "daddy's little helper" being one of them. :)

Regan, I can totally relate...Elyse didn't eat pretty much for the first 2 days after coming home, and we paid a visit to the lac. consultants back at the hospital. After learning a few things, she had her first full meal & we always said we came back home with Elyse version 2. We both did ALOT of crying those first 2 days! Makes a difference doesn't it!? Glad all is well - can wait to meet him! Kathryn
