…because I’m gaining weight and getting rid of my jaundice. Tuesday we had our first appointment with the pediatrician. Everything with Michael looked great. He weighed 6 lbs 1 oz, only 1 oz below his birth weight. The doctor said it typically takes up to 2 weeks for babies to get back to their birth weight, so Michael’s ahead of schedule.

The only minor issue was that his bilirubin level (related to jaundice) was a little higher than when we left the hospital. We had a follow-up appointment Wednesday to check his level; it was going down. No more check-ups until his 2 week appointment.
Life is good!
