Hey everyone, another quick update- my tailbone still hurts too much to stay for long in front of the computer. Cannon is doing well, his jaundice has cleared up nicely and my milk is coming in. He still wants to nurse constantly, so that is a bit time consuming, but I need to have enough milk for him, and there's only one way to get it, right? On Monday, a nurse came for a home visit, and his weight had gone down from 8lbs 14oz, to 8lbs 2oz. I was pretty surprised that he had lost 12 oz! That seemed like a lot to me, but the nurse wasn't concerned at all. His cord stump fell of already at one week old. It was all gross and gooey underneath, but the doc told us that's normal too- and it has mostly dried up now, just bleeds a bit occasionally. By Friday, he stopped losing weight and started gaining, he was up to 8lbs 2.5oz. Only half an ounce, but it's a start. He smiled at me yesterday morning- I was talking to him and he did. I know it wasn't gas-or at least I'm choosing to believe it lol! It was really cute! I will post more pics eventually, but I can't find my camera now.

I'm glad to hear that Cannon is doing so well! I bet that smile melted your heart!!

I hope your tailbone starts to heal soon, if not, maybe you should talk to the dr about it and make sure there is nothing serious.

Thanks for the update!!
