The week that we came home, Andrew planned on taking Monday-Wednesday off and had planned on going into work Thursday and Friday before winter break. O Thursday and Friday, however, we had a huge snow storm. We're talking 16+ inches and blizzard conditions which cancelled school both days. So instead of just 3 days home, Andrew had off until after the new year! It was awesome and we were so happy to have him home for so long.

Grandpa Rick got to meet Owen over the New Year. He came up from Florida and spent several says watching football with the boys. Owen took some great naps on Grandpa's chest. We can't wait till we get to see him again.

Besides that, it was a lot of getting to know each other and trying to figure each other out. We had a weight scare when we went in for our post-hospital check up as Owen had continued to lose weight since leaving the hospital. My milk hadn't come in, so he wasn't getting the nutrients he needed and dropped to 7lbs, 15oz. Luckily, it came in shortly after and the O-man gained 6 ounces in 2 days. Way to go buddy. Dr. Trias, his pediatrician, was pleasantly surprised and knew that he could gain weight. After that, there was no slowin' him down. Owen gained almost a pound each week for the next 3 weeks. By his 4 week check up, he was up to 10lbs, 12oz.
Ready for the tundra--it's cold out there.
Please don't bother me, I'm sleepin'.
