A quick update and a few pictures...

Sorry that I haven't been better about keeping you all updated with photos! Seems blogging goes by the wayside when you have a new baby! As for a quick update, we are all doing well. My mother-in-law has been a god-send. She cooks, cleans, does the laundry, oh, and did I mention that she sleeps in the babies room on an air mattress from two one, only to get me when Moses needs to eat so that Jeremiah and I can rest? Jeremiah takes the first shift then Kat comes in later. I am up to feed him then I go back to bed. I don't even want to think about what happens when they go back to work in two weeks...
Moses saw the doc today and is almost back to birth weight. He was 8.13 at birth and is now at 8.8. Doc said all looked great. Mo goes back on Saturday for his circumsicion. Don't. Even. Want. To. Think. About. It.
We also saw a breastfeeding consultant yesterday and today. She is AWESOME. SO very, very helpful. I was not prepared for the pain associated with breastfeeding. We have adjusted Mo's latch a bit and now are just working with the engorgement. I really want to make breastfeeding work for as long as I am up for it, so all the extra help is invaluable.
Uncle Gary came up for a visit yesterday and today and my mom and God parents the day before that. It has been good to see them and introduce them to Moses, he is so loved!
