All is well... *yawn*

Well, I hope everyone is assuming that since we haven't updated the blog that things are going fine. That is the case, and with a newborn in the house, there's not been much time to update the blog. I also wanted to wait until I had some better pictures, but that hasn't happened yet.

Things are going pretty well with all of us. Owen is doing just fine. He eats about every 3 hours and is a pretty sleepy little boy. We are still going to the doctor periodically for weight checks just to make sure he's gaining properly. He has had two weight checks showing he was borderline in the weight-gain department. Otherwise, he's very content and easy to take care of. He's growing more alert each day and I can't wait for that first smile in a few more weeks!

Kate is doing about as well as I expected. She loves her baby brother, but she had some issues with James and me (James especially) at first. She was acting out and doing crazy things for attention - especially negative attention. But, she's a great helper (too helpful, most of the time) and seems to be getting used to sharing us with Owen. James and I are adjusting to sleepless nights, though I feel like I was a little ahead of the game getting several nights of decent sleep toward my recovery while Owen was in the hospital. I also feel like there's less stress this time, since I have a better clue of what I'm doing, so the stress doesn't compound the sleeplessness like it did with Kate.

Thank you so much to all of our friends and family who were and are keeping us in your prayers and checking up on us. The offers for help and meals were many, and I want you to all know how much we appreciate you. It is so nice to have such a great support system.

Like I said, I don't really have many good pictures, but here are a few of Owen at home. I promise I'll try to get some of him awake!
