Hi all....just a few pictures of the little man.  He is doing great.  Went for our first pediatrician appointment today.  At birth, his head circumference was 38.5cm and today it measured 37.25cm.  We are going to go weekly to the pediatrician for a head circumference check for the next few weeks.  As of now, shunt surgery is scheduled in a month, but anything can change in a month.  Lets keep those prayers going that his head circumference and the fluid continues to decrease on its own.

Our biggest challenge these past two days being home is just adjusting to life with a newborn who requires a lot of attention, as well as a 3 year old who also wants a lot of attention.  And I can't do anything physically for a few weeks, so all the burden has been falling on Kevin.  Jake is starting to warm up to Austin.  He helped me feed him this morning and then held him a few times.  He's the proud big brother until Austin starts to cry and then he can't hear his Barney movie...then he's not so happy with his lil bro. 

Can't thank everyone enough for all of the prayers, thoughts, and concerns.  Faith is so powerful and we have seen many blessings since our little miracle arrived.
