Sunbathing

Our poor baby boy has jaundice and we've been doing everything we can to kick it so we don't have to go back into the hospital.




We also had our first visitors this weekend from the Aunt's.




Little Miss is still in awe of her little brother and loves to hold him and give him kisses.




This little boy has proven to be different from our baby girl. He grunts, toots, wiggles and poops all day long.


Last night we all had our first night of rest with only the typical feeding interruptions. It felt so good  to get sleep in 2-3 hour increments. I know Nonnie was thankful for the rest too, we have worked her to the bone. During the day if she isn't cleaning the dishes, laundry and kitchen she's either chasing a 2 year old or rocking a baby. We are so thankful for her and couldn't do this without her.

  1. Oh no! Harper had Jaundice and we were stuck in the hospital for almost 4 days instead of the usual 1. At the time I thought it was the worst thing ever.. but looking back it was like a vacation!

    I hope the sunbathing does the trick and you guys can avoid the blanket or the hospital.. we will be thinking about you!

    I think I saw the aunts at wal-mart with Little Miss.

    I love all these pictures of little E bathing in the sun. I remember doing that with Dylin. And all those pictures with big sis- they are so precious! : )
