Colby's first day home

(Someone's getting sleepy)
(Finally, the family home on the couch!)

(What a good big brother)

Thank you all for your comments and e-mails. Colby's a luckily little man to have all this support and attention!

Colby's first day home has been wonderful. He's waking up every 3 hours to eat. He was very awake today....which I hope will mean he'll be very tired tonight. At noon the visiting nurse came. Colby now weighs 6 pounds 4 ounces and is a whopping 20 inches long. The visiting nurse will come about 2-3 times a week. I had mentioned earlier that birth to 3 would come tomorrow...I was wrong. It's Colby's first pediatric appointment tomorrow afternoon.

Some people have asked me if it feels weird having a baby home. Actually it feels completely natural. Tracey and I are just happy to have him home.

Luckily, I'm feeling 100% better now. It was just one of those bugs that hit you quick and hard. Tracey works from 2pm to 10pm on Thursdays and then works at 6am to 2pm on Fridays. So Thursday nights will be one of my nights to take care of Colby. So it's the Colbster, Hamilton and I camping out in the living room. I think we'll soon sleep in our room. But for now the living room works out well. My sister in law, Amie came over to watch him this afternoon as I didn't want to be near him until I felt totally better. Thank you Amie!

Evan has been wonderful with Colby. Even while Colby was in the hospital, when he was at his dad's house, we would call to check up on his little brother. Tonight, he offered to stay in the living room with Colby so that Tracey and I could get a good night's rest. So we're very lucky that Evan is such a good young man.

Well, I'd better set up camp on the couch because Colby should be getting up between 1 and 2 in the morning to eat and I need to get a couple hours rest before hand.
