You are 22 hours old now. So far your favorite activities are eating, sleeping and pooping. You are getting the hang of this eating thing. We've had some good nursing sessions in, although I don't think there's been any breast milk so far. I can definitely say that it is true that nursing is great for bonding even if you only get the supplement. For me, there is nothing like looking down at you when you are nursing. You are so cute with how you raise your eyebrows.
In marking your "firsts", I should note your first time using FaceTime was to talk to your uncle D and cousins. They were all smiles. Grandma was upset she couldn't be your first FaceTime, but she eventually got her phone figured out and you were wide awake to talk to her.
We had a good first night together. Your daddy and I had to share a small bed, but we made it work. I didn't sleep much because I kept wanting to check that you were still breathing. We had to wake you up for your 4am feeding, but by 6am, you were up and letting us know it was time to eat now. Other than that, you have been a peaceful baby and didn't cry much. Daddy and I made a good team last night and we think we can manage this well.
Quiet house, happy kids…
