Hospital Stay!

I knew that once I got home that blogging would take a now I'm playing catch up! Here's what happened during the rest of our hospital stay.  

Zeke looks so cute in his little giraffe outfit.

Mama love!

He has these super long, skinny fingers. Owen keeps asking if he's going to play the piano. Not sure if someone mentioned that to him or if he just knows that it's good for piano players to have longer fingers.

Zeke thinks they are for sucking on right now!

Daddy snuggles!

We had a couple other visitors while in the friend Kim and her boys Andrew & Josiah came with Kim's mom Caroline on Thursday morning. Unfortunately I didn't take a picture of them. Uncle Ry and Aunt Stephie also came on Thursday and hung out for a while. I love having visitors at the hospital!

While in the hospital we found out that Zeke was boarder line jaundice and he had lost quite a bit of weight. He was down from 7lbs 5.4oz to 6lbs 13oz. They were getting a little worried since my milk hadn't come in yet so they asked me to start pumping after he nursed and then give him the rest of that as well. This is where nursing issues started!

This is absolutely my most favorite thing to do right now!!!

All strapped in and ready to go.

Zeke had his circumcision on Friday morning and I got my staples removed. After that we had lunch and did one more feeding session and then it was time to go home.

Walking out!

Welcome home Zeke!!!

We were greeted by all the kids. It was like we had never even been gone. It was mommy this and daddy that. Can I do this and can we have this? To be honest it was a bit loud and overwhelming. Later on I ended up having a mini meltdown. I was feeling overwhelmed and incapable since I can't do much because having surgery. One of the biggest issues was not having everything ready for Zeke. Since we didn't know he was boy all his clothes weren't washed and once we started feeding him with a bottle he started sipping up more so he had gone through quite a few outfits. Thankfully my mom and dad stuck around and mom got the laundry started and dad went and got dinner. Michael was dealing with the kids and trying to have some special time with them. It just wasn't the laid back welcome home that I had envisioned and I think my hormones were just all out of whack!
