    5 days old and perfect. Sleep is going okay. I've been managing about 5 hours a night. Last night he was gassy for a bit then had trouble staying asleep. We finally got settled just after midnight and he gave me two 3 hour stretches. Not too bad. I feel almost back to normal (yeah, the stitches itch, but it's tolerable) except for the lingering nasty cough. All the stress of labor and having a newborn is definitely prolonging it.
    Baby loves the wrap, we;ve used it a lot the past few days. He's sleeping in it right now. We went for a 1.5 mile walk Friday and were out at a fair for 4 hours yesterday. So today I'm trying to take it easy.
    He's eating well and pooping with every meal. I don't think he's gaining weight quite as quickly as my others (they were up 12oz and 1lb, respectively, at 5 days) but we'll find out tomorrow at my appointment. I don't mind if he takes it a little more slowly than they did!

    Pictures...
    coming home


    Biggest brother is completely in love. The first thing he does each morning is come into our room and check on "new baby Oliver". He's always there when Oliver cries telling him "it's okay. shhhh" He has reacted far better than I could have hoped.


    Big brother is still a little skeptical, but warming up.

    first appointment with the Ped was at 6 days. He was up to 7lbs 7oz. 9oz over his birth weight. I've got another little milk monster.
    Sleep is going pretty well. Sometimes he hates being swaddled and sometime he loves it. Hopefully I'll figure out the pattern soon. Last night he let me sleep 7 hours in 3 stretches.

    The picture of your oldest lying next to him is priceless. It must be so heartwarming to see your children love each other so much.
