    That is some story! It sounds like you did great and made it through like a trooper!

    I hope you are enjoying holding Daniel and that you both recover quickly!

    Congrats on the birth of your baby! Two small tears with a vacuum is excellent! Wishing you a speedy recovery and hopefully little one's jaundice clears up quickly!

    His billirubin count from yesterday was great. It was up from 12 to 13, but he was also another day older, so they are considering it to be going down soon.

    Now, to get him to not want to nurse every hour. He does the whole crying/rooting thing and then I get him latched on and he nurses for about 10 minutes and then falls asleep..... It's not helping my milk production. Any pointers?

    Well, the Jaundice is almost gone now. At yesterday's appointment he weighed 7lbs 7.5 oz, so just another 1.3 ounces and he's be back to his birth weight.

    They are gonna do his first anemia check at his 2 week appointment when they do everything else, including his circ. He's actually going to be a little over 2 weeks old at that appointment, but that's because they only do circs on Tuesdays and they wouldn't do a 2 week checkup before 2 weeks old.

    We are gonna attempt a mini bath this afternon. I'm gonna have DS Jacob help. Daniel has been collecting dead skin in the folds of his neck (and other places) and I'm having a hard time getting it off with just a sponge bath.

    Jacob is coping decently with being a big brother. I'm trying not to say things like "because Daniel is sleeping" when trying to explain why he can't do something. He's definitely thrown a couple of tantrums since I've been home. Of course, that could be because Grandma lets him get away with everything and we don't. He was with her for two straight days.....

    NE ways.. now that Daniel has been fed and burped, I'm hungry.

    just for kicks, here's a video of two preggos playing Guitar Hero while a 4 year old dances (sort of). I'm playing the guitar and my lil sis (due Tuesday) is playing the drums. The video was a day or so before our induction.
