I guess he's eating ok....

Yesterday Josiah had his first Pediatrician appointment- and he is doing really well and is very healthy!
When we were discharged from the hospital on Dec. 21, he weighed 7 lbs, 10 oz (it's normal for newborns to lose a little weight at first). Yesterday, Dec 29, only 8 days later, he weighed in at 8 lbs, 12 oz- he's gained over a pound since we left the hospital- I was blown away!!
Another big step for the J man: he lost his cord stump yesterday!! Unfortunately, it was a little premature, and there was a little healing left to be done, so there is now a scab inside the belly button area, but it's healing nicely :)
He has also been looking around and interacting with us more- it is SO cute to see him watch Jonathan- and cute to see Jonathan watch Josiah. It's just a house full of cuteness!
