Welcome home

Yesterday the baby weighed in at 2.700kg, 5.76% loss from birth weight. Midwife was pleased with that result since the average is 10%. We bundled him up in his car seat, checked out of Birthcare in the morning and brought Kien home.

It was really nice to come home. Jef has done an exceptional job of tidying and cleaning. I was so grateful.

It was Jef's turn for some serious bonding with Kien, and they spent hours together. I got a chance to get settled.

I'm feeding the baby whenever he asks for it - he just grizzles a bit to get my attention, and if I miss that queue he will give me a not so subtle demand! He has been very hungry, wanting milk every 1 1/2 - 2 hours. I've been able to get some sleep between feeds. Just as well I am used to surviving on very little sleep :-)
