Baby Jayden was finally taken out of the Jaundice Box and gained enough weight to go home.  Everyone is safe and doing well.  And here’s another baby photo because everybody loves those. 

I was at the baby store near my house and I saw a baby bib that said “My Auntie Loves Me!” Oh yeah, I bought it.  This baby’s going to be fashionable.

Chris and I spent New Year’s Eve at home again this year.  This year, however, we rented Hellboy 2 from Movies on Demand and then watched Anderson Cooper and Kathy Griffin do the countdown.  I don’t know if I’m getting old or what, but I quite enjoyed that.  Our neighbors also managed to obtain professional fireworks again and they set them off again behind our house.  This time, however, there wasn’t any mishaps, and therefore no crazy screaming.

Today, I did some chores and then went to dinner with a few friends.  I enjoy doing something with people New Year’s day.  It’s like starting the new year with friends.  For some reason, I also felt like I had to, I mean, absolutely HAD TO write a journal entry today.  Like it’ll start the year with goodness or something. 

As for baby update news, Baby Jayden was able to eat on his own and kept his food down.  They were going to up his feeding from 38 milliliters to something else.  They ultimately wanted him to be at about 50 milliliters before they let them go home, but he got jaundice, so they’ve got him back on the tube again while he’s in The Box.  So they’ll be at the hospital a little longer than they wanted.  I’m not too worried about the jaundice though, all the babies I’ve known had jaundice.  Chris had jaundice.  A little time in The Box and they’ll be fine.  But I hope that he gains weight fast enough so that they can go home eventually.  They’ll have a 4 hour drive when they do!

On December 29th, at 5:29pm PST, my nephew was born!

He weighed 5 lbs. 11 ounces and was 19 inches long.  My brother said that because of Baby Jayden’s natural birth, his cone head added a few inches to his length.  But I said  that it couldn’t have added more than an inch! 

Jimmy and Jennifer were vacationing in Tahoe when the baby decided he wanted out, so they had the baby in the Reno hospital (the Truckee hospital doesn’t have a facility for premie care.)  Baby Jayden was 6 weeks early!

Both mother and father are fine, but a little tired.  Since Baby Jayden was early, he had a few problems eating.  They tubed him and gave him formula only to have him throw it up again.  But today, Baby Jayden was able to eat on his own and keep most of the food down.  They’re trying different formulas to see if he’ll be able to keep that down. 

They’re keeping him in the hospital for a few more days to make sure he’s gaining weight, so the parents will be stay up in Reno and won’t be able to return home (To the SF Bay Area) until then. 

Hopefully now that he knows how to eat, he’ll put on weight quickly and they can all return home.  Send good thoughts their way for me!
