Kaleb: Day Twenty Three
Life with baby at home is still going along very well. Thankfully I spent many years working at Shaw's and running on little or no sleep, so this is no sweat. Of course it will probably catch me in about three days, but after a little more rest I will be recharged. We are slowly becoming more and more comfortable with the fact that Kaleb won't just randomly stop breathing, as a result we have been leaving him in his pack'n'play to do chores and other things. I think we got a little carried away with the holding him thing yesterday and it was making it harder for him to get put down.
So we had two big events today, Kaleb's first pediatrician visit and his first walk outside. After much difficulty we got him into his car seat, which is much more difficult because of his size. The first order of duty at the doctor's office was to weigh and measure him. Believe it or not he is now at 4 1/2 pounds, we don't know how it happened, but somehow he gained five ounces in the forty eight hours since we took him home from the hospital. We worth both surprised and couldn't stop talking about it. Besides that everything looks good and we don't have to go back for a month. While there we also got the green light for a walk outside. After his lunch I got out the BumbleRide Rocket and tried to inflate the tires and somehow the air just rushed out of the tire. The pump that came with stroller was a piece of junk and after a few minutes of frustration I walked down to the bike shop and bought a pump. 30 psi later and we were changing Kaleb for his first foray into the outdoors. He wasn't too fond of all the changing and screamed out at the top of his lungs. Finally after much wrestling we managed to get him into his new outfit and into the stroller. We didn't go very far and only walked within a few minutes of our house, but it was still nice to get outside as a family. Its great how the weather has changed into spring so quickly.
The rest of the day I have been doing a bunch of work stuff and Jennifer has tried her best to get some rest. Well dinner is ready!!
