Want More Updates?

Helloooo! I feel like a total slacker on this blog now that we have been home and getting back to normal. I am trying to remember to update it sometimes, but it just doesn't end up happening. Sorry!

I have, however, been updating my other blog quite regularly with updates of our family and especially Tanner.

So if you are wanting to see updates more often check out this blog!

Scar? What Scar?

People have been asking how Tanner is looking and how his incisions are healing. So here is an update to see how GREAT he is looking! (hey Aunt Callie! This one's for you!)

The two little dots on either side just below the long scar are where his pacer wires were. These should go away completely.

The bigger blob below the long scar is where his chest tube was. There will be a permanent scar there, but it will lighten up a lot. It is looking so much better than just a week ago! It was a little infected before...

Also, the scab from his belly button finally fell off yesterday! He has an official innie! I tried to get a picture without waking him up, but his diaper is covering it, so hopefully I'll get one later.

1 Month Old. Still Settling In.

1 Month! But only been home for a week.

He is finally back up to his birthweight at 6lbs and 6oz. As long as he keeps gaining weight, his recovery should be great!

Noming Mom... it was so cute I had to get a picture.

Let's Keep the Good News Coming!

We are all settling in at home very well. It is so nice to have Tanner at home! Now I get to catch up on all the normal newborn stuff I guess.

He is a very well behaved baby though. I was expecting this to be much worse, and much more sleep deprived. He only wakes up a couple times a night to eat, and is great the rest of the time. There are occasions where it is hard to get him back to sleep. You can totally tell he is tired, but he'll fight going to sleep.

He even watched some NASCAR with Daddy the other day. I'm sure it was just all the bright colors of the cars flashing by, but it was way cute.

We went to his pediatrician's office to day to follow up on his weight and make sure he is gaining. He has gained 4oz since his appointment a few days ago! Yay! That means he is back to his birth weight... and almost a month old. sheesh.

He sure did look cute for the doctor today though. This is a preemie onesie that we found at Wal-Mart yesterday while grocery shopping, and it is still big on him. So cute!

He was totally (and still is at the moment) zonked out after the car ride home.
I also wanted to compare him to me. This is me when I was 10 days old. I think I've got a Mini-me!
