Evan Update...

Well, Evan has reached the ripe old age of one week! Yay!

Yesterday at his weight check, he was 7 pounds and 4 ounces, which means he's gaining weight well, but he also got tested for jaundice, because I noticed his eyes were a little yellow. The tests came back high enugh that he has to be in a bililight machine, which is kind of a tanning bed for babies to kick start their livers. He has to be in it 24 hours a day unless eating or changing diapers or doctor visits. Today we go to get another jaundice level test, and hopefully it's low enough that we can stop the machine soon because I hate not being able to snuggle him :(

He is a little trooper, though, and has been taking it pretty well. I'll keep you updated!
