Mommy started calling me Pumpkin last week. I can't figure out why, can you?

I had my first bath at home on Tuesday night. It was very relaxing.I kept my eyes closed most of the time.Minnie and Daddy lotioned me up and did my hair in front of the fireplace.This is what I looked like with a bili level of approximately 20. Isn't it a pretty shade of orange?Here's one of my spa pictures. I didn't mind baking under the lights for a day. I even got to take the goggles home. Mina tried them on and she liked them too.I was all tired out on Thursday night right before we got the go ahead to return home.If you look closely, you can see my dimple on my left cheek.Mina and I wore wool pants on Friday and sort of matched. Mine were made by one of Mommy's friends so they're extra special.This picture was taken this morning. I slept all snug and cozy in my sleep sack last night. I've been sleeping for 2-3 hour stretches in my bouncer every night. However, I don't like to eat very much at night so Mommy wakes up really grumpy and in pain. She'll appreciate it if I don't need her at night soon enough, but I plan to wake her up all the time once her body would allow her to sleep better. That's what babies are supposed to do.Daddy took this picture because he has one that's similar with Mina.

On Friday I got some time alone with Grandma because Mommy and Mina went to tot lot. Maybe I'll get to go with in a few weeks. Mommy is amazingly mobile and itching to get out of the house. It's probably because I took it easy on her when I made my arrival.

I get to meet Alaina and Matthew this week. I'll make sure Mommy takes some pictures during the chaos. Plus, there aren't any pictures where you can see my face and Mina's face clearly so she needs to work on that.

Spa Day

I've been keeping Mommy so busy that she hasn't even taken the time to come on here and announce my arrival. I arrived on January 22 at 4:11am. I decided to take it easy on her and practically came out without her even having to push. Yep, I'm a sweetheart.

There are lots of pictures of me that Mommy will load once we get back home, but right now we're back in the hospital. My skin is bright orange like a pumpkin so I earned myself a spa day. I get to hang out under these really bright lights and wear some super cool shades all day and all night until my orangeness starts to go away. I should get to go home tomorrow as long as everything goes okay. Don't worry about me. I'm enjoying myself and Mommy is finally getting a chance to sit and relax. Weird that a hospital admission is kind of less stressful.

My sister is pretty cool. She was a little naughty for a couple of days throwing things and hitting (generally not me, just my parents in most cases), but she's been really sweet the last couple of days. She held me and kissed me before I left for the hospital this morning. She also says, "It's alright, baby," when I cry and helps with my diaper changes. I can't wait to see her when I'm feeling more lively!
