Yay! Zach is home again! He looks like a beautiful pink baby now, no more yellow jaundice! It’s such a relief to be back in our own beds, and little Z seems to be happy to be in his comfy bassinet.
Tomorrow we’ll be having his Bris (Jewish baby naming ceremony & ritual circumcision), and will be introducing him to the rest of our family.
Hopefully I won’t cry too much when the Mohel performs the procedure. Hearing your baby cry in pain is pretty awful, as I found after watching nurses do loads of blood work on Zachary yesterday and today. Fortunately the Mohel we picked is also a pediatrician, so Zach will be getting something to numb the pain and hopefully won’t cry very much.
