One Week Already!


I can't beleive that it's aleady been a week. At the hospital we were told that Jaxton had jaundice. It wasn't high enough that we would have to leave him in the hospital but we had to have him on a billi blanket at home 24/7. Then everyday I had to bring him to the doctors office to have his blood taken. That was super hard on me. I hate to hear him cry that hard! As of today I was able to take him off the blanket, so that was a really good feeling!! Also when I took him in he was back to his birth weight of 8lbs 4oz. That made my day even more. When we were at the hospital the doctor said his length was 20 inches and then 2 days later at the doctors office they said he was 21 1/2 inches long. So I am guessing that the hospital was a little off. He is one long little boy!! Everything else is going really good. I am feeling the exhaustion this week and I think I was running off adrenaline last week. I am so happy to have him here and I couldn't feel more complete then I do now!
