I'm sitting here listening to Micah make his cute little squeaky noises while he naps across the room in the pack-n-play. He is really so much fun sometimes. He has been eating like a champ since the lactation consultant came on Thursday, and I'm so relieved that feedings have become normal and no longer a totally stressful event.
We had another doctor's appointment yesterday and Micah weighed in at 5 lbs 7 oz. We're not sure yet what to think about that - I think the scale was off on Wednesday when they weighed him in at 5 lbs 9 ozs - that seemed like too big a jump to make in 36 hours after not eating for almost 18 of those hours. The lactation consultant weighed him in at 5 lbs 4 ozs naked and 5 lbs 6 ozs with the diaper, so 5 lbs 7 ozs would be consistent. The doctor said that babies can plateau at 4/5 days - stop losing but not quite gaining yet. He wants to see a measurable jump in weight when we go back on Monday, so let's hope we are on the right track!
Sunday we are having a bris for Micah. For those of you who don't know what a bris is, basically, it is a religious ceremony for his circumcision and naming. All of our family and friends will be joining us to welcome Micah. We are so excited to introduce him to everyone tomorrow.
