A week later..

It has now (this afternoon) officially been a whole week home! We have stayed very busy with Thanksgiving, getting to church, getting groceries, doing laundry, doctor appointments, trying to organize and just feel like we are home! It's that feeling you have after you've been on vacation and finally get home...but we had a really long vacation.

On our way home from the hospital! He looked like this for awhile, then he fell asleep...the car seems to do that to him!
It has been fabulous to be at home. Weston is a very good sleeper and has slept 4 hour chunks a couple of nights. This is not the norm yet, but we'll take it. Most of the time he wakes up to eat and then goes right back to sleep once his tummy is full. If that continues, we won't complain.

Last Friday we had a doctor appointment in Monticello with a pediatrician. Thankfully the cardiologists down at the U/Children's had called him and updated him on the first month of Weston's life so we didn't have to answer QUITE as many questions. The pediatrician said Weston looked great, sounded great, and had gained more weight (7 lbs 12 oz)! All a good report.

Monday we had the home health nurse come out for the first time to check in and weigh Weston again. That is the biggest goal, to be sure he is eating enough to continue to gain weight. Yesterday he weight 8 lbs even! The nurse was also very pleased with Weston's coloring, his weight gain, his lungs sounded great, and how handsome he is :) (People all keep calling him that...guess he might get confused what his real name is!) We decided since he is doing so well the nurse only needs to come once a week so we'll see how Weston does on the same scale in another week.

Oh that tongue...but look, "So big!"
