Sorry for the delay in updating. We’ve actually been doing really well, but we just got a new computer (bringing a baby into the house has made us acutely aware of the need for more space, so we finally made the move to a laptop) and haven’t had a lot of time to spend getting it set up. Meanwhile, we’ve been taking pics with our camera instead of the iPhone, so we needed the computer in order to post the new stuff…

I want to make sure and thank you all for your kind thoughts and prayers and comments – we’ve enjoyed reading them, even though we don’t have time to respond individually.

We’ve had two really good nights in a row – Calvin is getting into a routine and we are actually able to get some sleep now and then, which is quite nice. Also, I haven’t been having any more headaches, which is wonderful! A huge relief. We took Calvin to the pediatrician on Tuesday and she’s thrilled with his progress. He’s already gained back the weight he lost in the hospital (he went from 7 lbs. 15 oz. at birth to 7 lbs. 11 oz. at discharge) and then some – the little chunker is now 8 lbs. 1 oz. The doctor said she didn’t expect him to get back to his birth weight for a couple of weeks, but he is a little chow hound and seems to be trying hard to develop a double chin.

He’s a little more alert, although of course he sleeps most of the time, but it’s fun to see him looking around and watch his changing facial expressions.

We’ve had several visitors, too, but didn’t get pictures of all of them. Here are a couple:

Anyway, I hope to be posting more now that we are up and running again. I’ll keep those pictures coming, I promise!
