It was a pretty rough delivery and we have been concerned about Zach’s facial coloring. When he came out, he came out very bruised with dark reddish-blue facial patches. We immediately thought it was bruising but quickly became concerned when the nurses said it could be beauty marks. The doctors came back this morning telling us that they feel that the marks are all facial bruising and that they will clear up.
More thumbs up is the simple fact that Jodi is able to breastfeed with success. With Eli, Jodi was unable to breast feed like we wanted. She has been super committed to doing it this time and she is proving quite the trooper. With the hard delivery, and now the breastfeeding troubles behind all looks good. I can’t say enough about how proud I am of Jodi and her performance yesterday. She never gave up and was wonderful.
Now I have to do some daddy hunting and gathering. I have a laundry list of things to find and bring to the hospital.
Oh, and if you are wondering how Eli is doing? He is an awesome big brother, holding his little bro a few times, comforting him when he was crying and being very supportive and gentle. It is amazing to see how responsive Eli has been. He didn’t want to go to school today because he wanted to go see Zach and Mom.
