makes mama happy (new baby edition)

1.  I love, love, love the fact that I can now drive with my steering wheel lowered into the proper position!

2.  I can use all of my wrinkle creams again.  (They'll probably be needed more than ever now!)

3.  Diet Pepsi (guilt free!)

4.  Watching these kids kiss their baby brother goodnight.  

5.  My mom coming over every morning to do all of my laundry. 

6.  Knowing that I NEVER have to push another baby out again...EVER!

7.  My MOPS group that makes dinners for families with new babies for two weeks!

8.  This stinking cute face...no matter what hour of the morning.  I could stare at him for the rest of my life!
5 days old, going to his first doctor's appointment.
50th percentile for weight and 25th for height.  
(My other kids were always in the 5th-10th.  He's a big boy!)
Do you notice how yellow he is?  He's had to get his poor feet poked about a million times.  His doctor thinks his bili levels have peaked so hopefully he's in the clear.  Yay! 
Here's Porter in the same outfit.  
We've decided that Gus looks a lot more like Brooklyn did when she was a baby. 

Things are going great.  The recovery this time seems to be much faster than in the past.  Gus is such a good baby.  I don't think I make any other kind!  The kids are on Spring Break so we're just relaxing and adjusting this week.  
Thanks for all of your sweet comments!

Thanks for the update on his bili count. I have been a little worried because he looked jaundiced. He's adorable...he does look alot like Brooklyn!
