One month check-up and other stuff...

Yesterday Dylan had his one month exam with the pediatrician. I bet this little guy has seen more doctors and nurses in his one month of life than I have ever seen in my...umm...33 years! He did very well as it was an easy appt. with no shots, no pain. He weighed in at 8 lbs 7 oz. and was 20 inches long! Woohoo! The nurse was a little bit concerned about how he was breathing, but after having an oxygen test, all appeared well. The doctor came in to take a look at his breathing as well and told me that Dylan was "probably fine". Yeah, thanks...very reassuring. His next appt. with the cardiologist is on August 20, so I will definitely update his progress at that point. But for now, my baby is healthy and thriving. What else can a mom ask for?

Dylan's Early Intervention nurse came to the house today. She is so helpful. It makes such a difference knowing that I'm not alone in this.

Lots of people have asked me how Cassidy is doing with her new baby brother. She is doing really well! Honestly! The main problem that we have is that I think she loves him a little too much...a little too hard!
Here is a recent picture of her trying to kiss Dylan. You can see how much Dylan enjoys being smothered to pieces!
