Zachary Michael was born Tuesday May 17th, C-Section at 7:27 p.m. weighing 7 pounds, 5 ounces and 20 inches long.
We came home Friday around noon. Zack slept the whole car ride home.
He is a good baby. He is really alert, he holds his head up, he moves his arms around to make the toys move on his activity mat.
He wakes up once during the night to eat.
When he came home, he was drinking 2 and a half ounces of formula and I was waking him up to eat.
He went to the doctor on the 8th. He weghed 8,1 and 20 and a half inches. In the hospital, he went down to 7, 3.
Now he eats 4 ounces and I feed him whenever he gets hungry and I let him wake up on his own. We keep him up around 7p.m till 9:30 or 10 so he'll sleep better. He gets cranky but after we play and talk to him, he is better. He doesn't cry that much. He's starting to smile and coo at people. He Loves his swing, but doesn't like his bed too much. When were tring to keep him awake in the evenings, and he goes to sleep before his normal bedtime, well put him in bed. He wakes up in a couple of minutes and starts fussing. Then he'll stay awake for a long time. He knows he's in his bed and it's not time for him to sleep. He's smart! But once its bedtime, he'll stay asleep.
I'll write more later about him.
