Visit with Dr. Jackson

We headed to the doctor's office this morning for a typical newborn check. Our pediatrician is Dr. Evans...but we saw Dr. Jackson this morning.
Evan is looking great! He now weighs 6lbs 6oz and measures 19 inches. So...he has shrunk and we are okay with that because he so little and cuddly...sometimes you just wish they would never grow! Dr. Jackson did have some concerns of jaundice. Evan has a very slight yellow tint. We headed to the hospital to get tests run and the results came back with everything being fine.Evan is a great eater! He latches perfectly and eats every 3-4 hours. And my milk has arrived in full force! I already have over 50oz of milk in the freezer! We had a great night of sleep...Evan slept for the first part of the night in his bassinet and after his 2:00am feeding, he got to sleep with Daddy. He woke up again at 6:30am to eat and then right back to sleep. I could just stare at him forever while he precious!We have one happy, healthy Baby Boy!
