We were able to get some more rest today. Samuel slept pretty well last night, but does wake up every 2 hours to feed. I'm getting used to this, especially if I've been able to take a nap or two during the day. It really helps my stamina during the evening if I've been able to rest at some point during the day. Usually, I'll feed Samuel, then Landon will burp him and put him back to bed. This means that neither of us are up for more than an hour at a time, which is helpful.

Samuel had his first appointment today with his pediatrician, and it was determined after he failed his bilirubin test that he should undergo phototherapy in our home. Samuel did great with the phototherapy lights, but we now have to take him in daily for bilirubin tests until he proves that his levels are coming down. This test is painful for Samuel, and emotionally hard for me to see. Since I'm so tired, these extra appointments really cut into the time where we could be sleeping during the day. This jaundice is a challenge right now, but we'll get through it just like everything else.

My friend Amy's daughter was born today--Alexandra Caitlin Peahl. Congratulations!
