Levi had to have blood taken again today at the doctor's office b/c his thyroid numbers were off, but the doctor said it is common & just needed to be checked again. I've read that it is also common for people with DS to have thyroid problems, but I am trying not to worry.

The good news is that Levi did gain some weight. He is now 6 lbs 10 oz (still not up to his birth weight of 6 lbs 13 oz), so he is gaining a little over half an ounce a day. The bad news is that we still have to give him formula twice a day. I am just sad that my breast milk isn't enough for him right now. Our next appt. is July 22. Hopefully at that point I can just nurse him from then on out.

On the way home from Lexington, Adam quietly reached over to hold his baby brother's hand and didn't let go until we got home. How precious is that?!

Glad he gained weight this time! They must not be too worried if you don't have to come back until July. That's good! Enjoy these sweet, sweet times with your little ones. Precious.
