Gramma's Back!

Mom arrived to stay with us for a few days yesterday! It's so awesome to have her here, especially now that Mike is back at work. We're getting totally spoiled with good food, help around the house and especially with baby. Troy has decided he doesn't want to sleep at all between the hours of 1:30-4:30 at night (see blog post from October... I called it) so an extra set of hands during those hours is absolutely invaluable! Thanks for coming to stay, Mom!

In other news. we went back to the doctor today to have bilirubin levels and weight checked. Nobody told us in the hospital earlier this week that Troy's bili levels would probably rise again slightly after we left, so when the nurse checked and he was a point higher I got very worried. The doc came in and explained she wasn't concerned at all and that they always see a slight rise in the days after babies leave from being under the lights, since the lights bring it down so quickly. His weight has dropped further though (7 lbs 2.5 oz), so she wants me to feed him more often during the day and come back for a weight check tomorrow. However, Troy gave us his first big blow out explosive diaper right before the doctor today though, and I'm thinking that we'll definitely see his weight increase for tomorrow :)
