He's as heavy as a sack of potatoes!

Ezekiel finally weighed in at a whopping 5lbs last night!  YAY!  He also got to try and eat from a bottle.  Unfortunately he didn't do so well... he would suck, but he wouldn't swollow-- he would just let all the milk dribble out of his mouth.  He was very wide-eyed and alert, as you can see in this picture.  He is 12 weeks old today.  
I thought I would put up some baby pictures of Daniel and I.  You all will have to let me know who you think Zeke looks more like!  This is me and my mom.  I don't have any newborn pictures of myself.... you wanna e-mail me one, mom? :)
 The picture below is Daniel as a newborn.  Obviously Ezie looks an awful lot like his daddy!Yesterday they decided to send off cultures to make sure Ezie isn't still carrying MRSA.  Please pray that the cultures come back negative.  If they don't, he will have to go back on contact precautions (ie we won't be able to touch him skin to skin anymore!).    Other than that, everything seems to be going well.  
Oh, and (thank God!) I no longer smell like onions!

Oh my gosh! Just checked your blog before leaving glad I did. He is BEAUTIFUL!!!!! even more beautiful (handsome)today than yesterday.

Yes, Kristin, I will mail you some newborn shots. I have one of you that looks just like one of your shots of Ezie on the blog.

Love, Mom

Thanks mom! Just take pictures of the pictures and e-mail them to me, that way you can keep the originals.

How sweet to see him with a bottle! And I do think he looks like Daniel but I see a whole lot of you in him too.:) And, hey, are you calling him Zeke now? Because that's what Nathan and I call him here! Sorry my phone died today, but I'll call tomorrow to talk if you have a minute. Did you really get 2 hours in today? That's some serious cleaning! Talk to you soon! Aimee

What a sweetheart! I will have to see a picture of you as a newborn to tell better. I don't think he looks exactly like Daniel...he's just his own cute self! Is he catching on to swallowing yet? I hope so. 5 lbs! Doesn't that mean that you can take him home soon? I hope so! Glad you got rid of the onion smell. I'm sure that wasn't fun. Wish we could all be together...miss you.

Aimee-- all of our nurses call him Zeke, and Daniel calls him that sometimes. I normally call him by his full name. I thought I would use Ezie, but really he's much more of an Ezekiel than an Ezie. I've tried Zeke, but it doesn't seem to come naturally to me. But yes, most people are calling him Zeke.

Jamie-- I like how you put it; that he's just his own cute little self! I have to agree. :)
