One Week Old

This baby is one week old today.  And good grief, he's the sweetest baby alive.  So far, he only cries when he's hungry, dirty, or has bad gas (is there any reason why when you become a parent, you automatically talk about gas like ALL THE TIME?)
When he's awake, he just chills.  Carolyn used to just scream and scream.
If he looks a little yellow in this picture, it's because he is.  We had to go to the doctor yesterday to get a bilirubin test and it turns out he's jaundice.  We're hoping to remedy that by hanging out in the sunshine a little bit over the weekend.
He's eating and pooping like a champion.
I'm still sore, sore, sore.  I keep thinking that when I wake up in the morning, I'll automatically feel 100% better and am always disappointed when it doesn't happen.

So far we've managed to avoid injury to Tate by Carolyn, which is quite the feat considering the fact that Carolyn feels that she has to flop and kick around the entire house.  She's so restless from having to stay home, it's driving me crazy.

he is BEAUTIFUL. I'm so glad it all worked out. Hope the breastfeeding gets better soon.
