Levi is home.
Tim and I are exhausted but in a state of euphoria after our night of "nesting" at the hospital. In the nursery at the hospital, Levi was on a pretty strict 3 hr feeding schedule. Last night he discovered the all you can eat, all hours buffet and he loved it! Everyone keeps reassuring us that he'll catch on to nursing, we just have to keep at it, but I'm guessing none of them have seen this boy when he's hungry! We were up bright and early and were able to get discharge paperwork taken care of fast enough that we were home by about 10:30 this morning and are taking the morning settling in. The girls spent the weekend at my mom's house and Brandon is at his mom's house right now, so we have a little time just the three of us (well, and Sparkle- she's so thrilled that the new "puppy" finally came home. She's been smelling him for weeks). Levi is so thrilled about being home that he's spent the time so far sleeping.
We'll continue to update you all on how Levi's doing. Right now, he's doing great and will have his first visit with our regular pediatrician tomorrow.
Thank you all for your prayers and concerns.

Well, I was proven right today. He weighed in at 4lb, 9oz Saturday night at the hospital. They didn't weight him yesterday before discharge. Today, he was weighted at the pediatrician's office and he weighed in at. . . FIVE POUNDS!!!! That's as big as DD1 was at discharge at 37 weeks (Levi's 36 weeks on this coming Thursday)! OK, even if the scales are off from each other by a few ounces either way, that's still a significant gain! Go Mommy milk!
