Parker's First Doctor's Appointment

What a big boy!
Snuggled with Daddy.
He did a great job at his appointment.
Parker did lots of sleeping when we got home. He was worn out.
Our neighbor brought us this adorable cookie bouquet that she made. Her cookies are the best and she decorates them so cute. She has made one for all three boys now and they are a highlight for Tom.

This morning Tom and I took Parker for his first doctor's appointment. Actually Tom took me too since I can't drive for two weeks. Parker did a great job at the doctor and his doctor thinks he is doing fantastic. His lowest weight at the hospital was 9 pounds 7 ounces and he is already back to 9 pounds 13 ounces. I guess when you eat all the time you are bound to gain weight. He is doing a little better each night, but he thinks it is buffet time from 2 a.m. to 4 a.m. and just wants to eat the whole time. Dr. Greenfield checked his whole body. Her only concern was that his skin still has a little bit of a yellow tint. His levels on Saturday were at 16. 5 so we knew that we would have to retest today. We went back to the hospital after his appointment and he had to have his poor heels pricked again. His heels look so bad from all the pricks. Thankfully Dr. Greenfield called and said his levels went down and he does not need to be tested again. Praise the Lord. We are so thankful. Dr. Greenfield was so pleased with everything that he does not need to come back for a two week weight check. He will go back for a one month visit.

Hi Jessie, Parker is such a handsome boy! Eva wouldn't let me scroll down and read your blog because she wanted to look at his picture for seriously 10 minutes solid. She kept saying, "oh hi baby Parker, what's in your belly button . . ."
