- his jaundice is pretty much gone and no longer a concern
- he's back up in weight (7 lbs 10 oz) and eating well
- he's in the 95th percentile for length, 25th for weight, and 50th for his head
- he will have to be the one to sort out his days and nights, and we just have to be patient in the meantime
We are thankful for our healthy, happy boy! I will post more pictures this afternoon.

So we do a lot of sleeping! Unfortunately, right now Robbie has his days and nights mixed up - so he's a dream to hold during the day when he looks like a little cherub as he sleeps for hours on end, but the nighttime is a different story. He's getting better, and like the dr. said, it will probably pass after about a week.
Robbie is still a touch jaundiced, but the pediatrician said that with regular feeding and diaper-filling, he should be fine in a few days. My mom and I stripped him down to his diaper and laid him in the living room window when we had about an hour of sunlight coming in the other day! Then we decided that his naked little self was too cute so we took a bunch of pictures.
On another note, our friends Jen and Matt just brought home their twins, Jackson and Amelia, born a day after Robbie! They are all doing well and I'm sure would welcome your prayer support as they adjust to life with two brand new babies.
Our dear friends Jeff and Becky will also be having their baby girl sometime today, as Becky has been overdue for about a week. Please pray that their baby girl is delivered quickly and in good health.
So many spring babies!!!
We pray that you all have a wonderful Easter weekend as we celebrate the death and resurrection of our Lord and Savior. New life is such a gift - both physical birth and spiritual rebirth. We praise God for both this Easter!

Any suggestions for pictures to put in the frames??

Yesterday marked the last day I will spend in the office at work - although I will continue to work from home during the day for the next week or two. I'm hoping that it will be a period of rest before everything is turned upside-down!

Rob and I had a fun and relaxing weekend (more on that in my next post... and a few pictures to go along with it) - aside from the fact that his back keeps slipping out of joint, causing much pain and hobbling. We are quite the pair now - it takes BOTH of us 5 minutes just to get out of the car, and we shuffle around the house like a couple of 90 year olds. If we weren't so uncomfortable, it would be funny and I'm sure we'd be laughing...
Maybe another day.
For now we pray for mercy and the loosening of muscles in Rob's back, and the safe (and quick!) delivery of our son. And we remember the blessings that are a part of our everyday life, and are so grateful to God for his goodness to us.
