4 pounds & 4 ounces

Yep! Baby Zane is "plumping" up. He weighed 4-1 at birth, fell off to 3-13, then eventually got back to 4-1. Last night when Ned called for his nightly update the nurse said he weighed 4-4. Ned hung up the phone and said, "I think I misunderstood her, I think she said his weight is 4-4." When Kel and I got here this morning we immediately asked about his weight. 4 pounds and 4 ounces is what was written on his chart. The nurse said, "lets weigh him again to make sure." Sure enough he weighed 4-4! He is now enough grams to really get ready for his open air crib. His progress continues to amaze us! I held him today. Let me just tell you right now, I could do that all day long! Kelly had fed him and she asked me if I wanted to hold him. At first I said no. The more I thought about it the more I decided I wanted to. I'm glad I changed my mind, it was unbelievable. He really seems different now that he's wearing clothes. Not so fragile.

My weekend was a whirlwind. I "blew" in on Friday about 3pm and immediately starting catching up on Shamrock stuff. Saturday is a blur but I think I got almost everything done. I still have a couple of blankets to embroider with Zane's name on them. Our dear friend Trina made supper for us. She has been terrific making sure we're fed. She is a great cook. I spent Sunday morning cleaning house, including steam cleaning carpets. I headed back to Nashville about 1pm with Kelly and Ned's dogs in tow. I'm not sure who was happier to see who. Some of Ned & Kelly's friends had a baby shower for them in Spring Hill. It was so much fun seeing everyone and ooohing and ahhhing over the cutest baby gifts ever. I fell off the "south beach" wagon and ate some of the best cake in the universe! Yes, it was that good. Chocolate with a cream cheese/cheese cake kind of filling. Amazing! If I had some with me I would be eating it right now. Moral of this story is.... If you're gonna cheat on your diet, do it right!!!
