Dad goes back to work...

Today has been a great day so far.  Andy went back to work, so it is just Owen and me at home.  We miss Andy already :(  Grandma D was a wonderful house guest last night, waking up with Owen throughout the night for feedings.  He was a perfect angel for her- no 9-12 fussiness and took down all 55 mL of milk at each feeding for her!  Thanks Grandma :)  Owen and I figured out the Moby Wrap (after a nice tutorial from Aunt Leah) and went for a walk in the neighborhood this morning before it got too hot.  It was nice to get some fresh air.  Owen can't wait to play outside and explore the woods in the back yard!  Right now he is sound asleep.  We had our first at home nurse from Cincy Children's visit on Saturday and she said Owen looked great!  He weighed 5 lbs 7 oz.- almost back to birth weight again.  She will visit twice a week for a couple weeks to make sure he is staying healthy and gaining adequate weight.  Owen has his first checkup with the Pediatrician today.  Grandma Pat is going with me to help out.  Grandmas are great, aren't they?  We'll let you know how it goes today at the Doctor.
