Check up and first shopping trip

Today Tanner is 1 week old!! Tanner had to go back to the doctor to make sure that his jaundice score had not gone up. It was 7.5 when we left the hospital, 10.5 @ Friday's appointment and the doctor just wanted to make sure it did not hit the teens because that is when they start treatment. I am happy to say that it did go down and it looks like our little guy will be just fine :)

He is steadily gaining weight too. He went from 7lbs 6 oz on Friday to a beefy 7 lbs 9 oz today. Must be all that delicious breast milk. The little man loves to eat!! Paul is all proud because his little guy is a "boob man" already. I didn't have the heart to burst his bubble and tell him that all baby's are boob people.

We also took our first trip to Wal-mart today. I was going to wait in the car while Paul ran in but decided that after nursing Tanner in the parking lot after the doctor's appointment to try and risk bringing him in. He did just fine and I escaped with a few minor whimpers and a short crying session that was put out by me moving the cart back and forth while I picked out my groceries. In my rush to get out of there unscathed I did forget to pick up the birth announcements that were finished printing....Darn it!! Maybe I can bribe Paul into picking them up for me tomorrow! I am starting to see in motherhood you win some and lose some... It would have been too perfect if I had remembered EVERYTHING I actually needed/wanted.

Here's a picture I just took of Tanner in a breast milk coma. He's such a mellow fellow!!


  1. I can't believe he is a week old already! You look like you're doing an amazing job!

    And these pictures aren't helping my Baby Fever AT ALL!

  2. Sounds like he's doing well! Charlie struggled w/ jaundice for a week or so at first.
    I told Bonny that Tanner is probably one of the cutest babies ever. He looks like a doll! So perfect!

  3. Aaaa-DORABLE!! Can't wait to see him again. You guys to...but mostly him!

  4. Keep bringing him out shopping....Tommy is a great shopper! (sometimes I have to bribe him with some fruit snacks to stop wiggling) but I can at least get 30 min worth of grocery shopping done while he sits and waves to all the other shoppers.

    Tanner is such a doll.
