Our Sweet Boy...

Bradford Russell, II "Brady" was born on Tuesday, August 30 via c-section.  He was 7lbs, 4oz and 19 inches long.  He is so perfect in every single way.  The c-section went great.  His weight dropped down to 6lbs, 11oz. When we left the hospital his weight was 6lbs, 12 oz.  The only complications we ran into was that Brady had jaundice.  His levels spiked up on the third day we were in the hospital.  He had to be under the bili lamp and this broke my heart.  He HATED it.  We were sent home Friday with a bili blanket for home.  We had to follow up with the doctor this past Sunday.  Not only did his levels drop, he was back up to 7lbs.  So, that made for a very happy mommy and daddy!

We are all adjusting very well at home.  Lilly loves helping me out with her brother and she is such a big help!  I think my hormones have calmed down just a wee bit, which is a very good thing.  I haven't really had much of an appetite since I've been home from the hospital.

Brady is eating about 3.5oz every 3 hours.  He is just now getting to where he is keeping his eyes open when he is awake.  He loves to look around!  Tomorrow is his 1 week check up and we are very anxious to see how much he has grown since we've been home!
