Welcome home Zane

Sorry, it's been a few weeks since I posted. Zane Joseph Engels arrive Monday, May 18th at 11:55pm via c-section. He was 6 lbs and 19 in long. He was a month early, as his due date was June 15th. Zane was as anxious to meet us as we were to meet him! He was pre-term but did not show many signs of a pre-term baby right away. 72 hours passed and he had a pretty rough day, had jaundice, difficulty keeping his temperature and weight up as well as trouble eating. Luckily we figured out he needed new formula and the billi lights and blanket to help with his jaundice and temperature.

We've been home a wekk now. We brought home the billi blanket but have been able to take him off of it since. He's so strong and such a great baby. He sleeps well and eats well and barely even fusses...other than when it's time it to eat or he has a messy diaper!! Oh, how I hope he will continue to be a great baby. He even lets us (mom) sleep for 4-5 hours at a time.

I hope you will enjoy watching him grow as much as we will. I plan to post video and pictures often for you all to enjoy!
