Thursday, July 14thI could not have asked for a better first night at home. Max slept in our room and I nursed him every 3 hours. Mom helped with every feeding by giving him a "top off" of milk after I nursed him. Even though I was up every few hours, I really enjoy spending time with Max and nursing him, so I didn't mind being up all night.
Then we had our first doctor's appointment with Max's pediatrician. It went very well and Max weighed in at 5 lbs and 14 oz. Dr Dykstra said he is doing great and had no concerns about him. We really like her. We also decided to have Max circumcised and Dr Dykstra will do that next weekend. That should be interested. I have a feeling it will be harder on Tyler than it will on Max, but we will see!
When we got home, Meg and Lilly, Lisa and Jack, and Laurel came to visit. Laurel brought lunch and dinner and we were so thankful! It was delicious. It was great to visit with all those girls and I really enjoyed it! Brent, an elder from our church also visited and prayed for Max's health and for Tyler and me. We really appreciated that. My aunt, Paula, my cousin, Ally and my brother, Eric, also visited that evening. I love introducing Max to all our friends and family.
