Moving on Up!

Last night was a very big night for Austin. He moved out on his own... well, into his own room at least. I can't believe its been 6 weeks already. First its moving out of our room... next, it will be getting his license, moving out of the house and getting married. Our baby is growing so fast! It's hard to believe when we brought him home he was only 5 lbs 11 oz and now he is 9 lb 11 oz. He is growing like a weed and has already out grown most of his 0-3 month pants and pajamas because of his length. He measures around 22 inches. It's hard to get those wiggly little legs to stay still when measuring but he's definitely growing very fast.

Good news with his jaundice... after a second blood test and 2 days without nursing, the doctors did confirm that it was breast milk jaundice and that the second blood test showed his counts went down so he was cleared to go back to nursing. His liver and thyroid were checked and everything came back normal. Austin is very happy to not have formula all day long but much to his disappointment mommy found that a bottle at night helped him sleep so, we are still giving his some formula.

That is great! I am so glad that Austin is feeling better. I can't wait to hang with you guys up north. It will be so much fun!
