Day 6

We have been very busy learning how to play with Calvin, nurse, burp, change diapers, and live on little sleep. Today was our second full day home from the hospital, and we first learned there is no red button to press that calls a complete staff of experts to your room to help when in doubt. Bummer! Yesterday, we laid low, Dan did about 3 loads of laundry, and as soon as he thought he was done, Calivin peed on our bed, so tired Dan did yet another. Then, Cal snuggled onto Dan's chest on the couch, and began the loudest wet doody we ever heard. Dan not only jumped, but then held the monkey as far away as possible while we both leaped into laughter. Today was a big day. We gave Calvin his first sponge wipedown, then went out to lunch at our fave chinese food place, and then off to first visit to the pediatrician. Calvin is eating like a champ, and gained 6 ounces since Monday! Average weight gain is an ounce a day, so way to go baby! Then off to Target for more diapers, and then exhausted, back home. Were doing great considering, and Calvin the little angel is resting sound asleep in his swaddling blanket.
