we’ve missed you
life is going by in a love-infused blur at the moment – and we’ve been neglectful bloggers
well, also, our arms are often full of Ruben, making it difficult to type.
but life is oh so good with Ruben!
This past week he gained 10 ounces – weighing in at 8 lbs 8 oz. and, he’s continuing to eat and eat and eat. He’s getting cuter and chunkier every day.
Mostly Sam, Ruben and I have been cocooned in our apartment getting to know life at home together. But, it’s the season for family gatherings, so Ruben is looking forward to meeting more family and friends and even getting out of the City over this next week.
We’ll be meeting with Ruben’s cardiologist on Tuesday at 9am for an echocardiogram and an update. We’ll be sure to pass on whatever we find out!
Ruben’s echocardiogram’s are most successful when he is sleeping soundly. If anyone has any tips for making sure a baby sleeps at a particular time – pass them on! So far, our thought is to try to make sure he eats a big meal right before hand …
hope everyone is warm and cozy and doing well.
