Visit to Pediatrician and a Bath for Matt

Today was a busy day. Sam, Naty, and Sofi had a pediatrician appointment in the morning, and passed inspection with flying colors. They had all gained 3-5 oz since Monday (exceeding the goal of 1 oz for the period), and the doctor said they are thriving at home. Lots of pictures from this... they were too cute.

We had an extra long visit with Matt (yay!) while Tere and Nana babysat the three at home. We got to hold Matt for quite a while, then bathe him. The bath was a lot of fun, and he seemed to be pretty relaxed. He has had a couple of good feedings (one where he took all 46 mL by bottle), but a couple where he was tired. The doctors think one day it will just click and he'll be home free from there.

Tomorrow is the big baby shower back in Michigan for the local folks. True to Martin tailgate form, it will be more of a family style barbeque-party than a traditional shower. We'll be attending via webcam, and I'm sure the babies will be stars!
