Another sponge bath tonight. Not Lonan's favorite activity but he didn't put up nearly the stink he has before. Afterward he lounged for a while in the robe his Mammaw bought him. Very continental, no?

In other news, we have a hot lead on a nanny who I think will be perfect for us. 2nd interview with her tomorrow. Fingers crossed please.

Saturday night Lonan had his first dinner out. We went to our favorite neighborhood Thai restaurant, Swatdee, with David Wood. Someone (Daddy) left the diaper bag there so Sunday we went out in the stroller for the first time to retrieve it.

Doug and I got booster shots for whooping cough. Apparently cases are soaring as they're figuring out that our childhood shots lose effectiveness. Since Lonan won't get his vaccinations for a while, Dr. Anne recommended we get booster shots. Afterward we went out for a late breakfast in the hood. I specifically got the OK from the Dr. because I don't think Doug was planning on letting Lonan out of the house until he was 12.
We got a great package today from Nana Kathy, Aunt Lindsay and birthdaddy Matt. Fun toys, a CUTE outfit and a beautiful Waterford frame. Luckily we have lots o' pics to choose from - the hard part will be picking one to put in it. Maybe we'll just rotate.

Ashley is doing great and feeling better every day. Between her and us and Mawmaw the first few days at home have been a breeze. Last night Ash did the 1130 feeding, Doug did the 230 feeding and I did the 530 feeding. Then we all slept in til 9. Not bad. And look who's trying to hold his own bottle already.

A great first night at home. After spending two nights at the hospital I gave Doug the night off and took Lonan duty. But there wasn't much to do. He and Ashley fell asleep on the couch not long after a 1030p feeding. I checked on them at 1am and everyone was so peaceful I went back to bed to give them another 1/2 hour. But I didn't wake up again til almost 3. So we had a bottle
and a change and I put Lonan in his crib. He was fine at first but wanted a binky so I gave it to him and all was well... for a while. Every time he'd lose it he would start to fuss. Eventually I got tired of jumping up every 10 minutes so I just stayed up with him til about 530 when he got really fussy. Ash and Doug got up.. we had another change, and a bottle and I went back to bed. When I got up (at 9!) Daddy and Lonan were passed out on the sofa in the living room.
Mawmaw is the kitchen working on dinner, Doug & Ash are out running errands, Larrabee is napping in the nursery and I am wearing the baby while I blog. It's another beautiful day in San Francisco.

Lonan is sound asleep after a pretty active morning. Ash and Doug got him at 5am and he was awake until about nine. He woke up again when Mawmaw and I arrived about 10. I fed him and he's been passed out ever since. I slept the sleep of the dead for 8+ hours and feel great. Doug and his mom just left to go home and get some rest. Ash is feeling good and we are expecting to leave the hospital tomorrow around noon.
Apparently I forgot to mention Lonan's vitals: 6 lbs 12 oz, 19 inches long.
