From Brian: Robert slept well until about 8:30 a.m. Then he had a great feeding.

Grandma Carol and Grandpa Don went home first thing this morning. We were so happy that they visited! Above is a photo of Grandma Carol holding Robert last night.

We have just returned home from the clinic. Robert just had a fantastic appointment at Kaiser. He’s doing well, he’s eating well, and he’s really cute! He weight 6 pounds, 6.5 ounces at the beginning of our appointment: That’s 0.5 ounce heavier than when he left the hospital. That means that his weight bottomed over the past couple of days and now he’s gaining weight. YAY!!! Then, he ate another 1.75 ounces with the nurse’s coaching. YAY!!! (We highly recommend Nurse Jessica Gallagher.)

We’re happy with Robert’s progress. I’m elated! I feel like we’re finally “home” and stable. Midwife Sharon will visit later to confirm everything.

    SO glad he is gaining weight – that is HUGE! It should only get easier from now (at least the eating bit – the sleeping may be a different story!)
    Can’t wait to see you guys!!
