Finally on the right track

YAY! Mr. Boy is finally thriving. Our weight check at the hospital today showed that we have a whopping 9lbs 6oz baby! This past week Mr. Boy grew, ate, and slept well.  He did not throw up and his reflux was quite controlled. We hardly recognized him as he sat smiling and alert in a crowd of family this weekend as David's mom and 2 aunts came to visit. And we couldn't have been more proud. For the first time since we can remember, Mr. Boy could sit happily awake without screaming and thus we were finally able to relax our shoulders, release our breath, and replace the egg shells we'd been walking on for solid ground.
It will take some time to get used to this new Mr. Boy,  but hopefully very soon we'll gain the courage to venture outside these 4 walls with our little one.
