Elijah Update

Elijah is doing great!

He had his 3-day-old checkup from the midwife today. He has maintained his weight since Monday and is looking great. We are hoping his cord stump will fall off tomorrow--it is hanging on by a thread!
Elijah is acting so much more alert now. He will actually wake up and interact about 15 minutes before wanting to eat and take a 10 minute break in the middle of nursing to just soak everything in. He is so bright-eyed! We are really enjoying this time to bond with him.

Elijah got his first bath yesterday to wash all of the blood off his hair and afterwards got calmed down by laying on his daddy's chest.
