A New Routine

Isaac is seriously such an easy baby! The only time he cries is when he's hungry or you're changing his clothes. Such a sweet boy. We had his bilirubin checked yesterday and it's not quite where it should be. I'm on strict orders to feed him every 2-3 hours, even at night. Believe it or not, I have to set my alarm & wake him up at night! He's a great sleeper. But the best way for babies to get rid of the excess bili is through their stools. So the more he eats, the more he poops, the quicker he'll get it out! :) His first "smile" was perfectly timed...the doctor said "I hate to tell you this, but you need to wake him up every 3 hours at night and feed him." *As soon* as she said that, he got a big ol' grin on his face! It was so funny.
He's nursing like a champ. He likes to fall asleep, but not nearly as bad as the other two. He gets his fill at every feeding, he's just pretty slow about it!
Sorry I haven't posted more pictures (or ones better than just from my phone!). We're trying to settle into a new routine and get things put away.
It's taken me so long to finish this post I can't remember what picture I attached!

Glad to hear ... ya all are home now. Sweet picture of the big girl holding little brother. I am sure it is a little bit more busy at home. I hope you are getting some help. I still remember the first 3 months when a new baby arrives ... survival mode :) Love from us.
