9 Days

On Monday last week, we were told there was an outside chance that Baby could come home on Tuesday but there was no reason why he couldn't come on Wednesday.  He ended up coming home on Wednesday, and it has been fantastic having him home.

His first night went ok.  His second night, he wouldn't sleep at all.  We figured it was because he needs to be swaddled so yesterday, we ran out to buy a swaddle sack.  With it, he can sleep for 4 hours on average.  He was difficult to soothe after the second nightly feeding - he usually gets fed before I go to bed and then between 3-4 am and then around the time the rest of the house wakes up.  We will see if there is progress tonight.  

We are all in love with him, and he really is a good baby.  He eats well and only cries when you take his diaper off.  This is partially because of the home dilation and his diaper rash.  We are much more relaxed having him home now though.
