Things to remember for next time...

After the umbilical cord falls off, it is normal for there to be a little crusty blood in the babies belly button for a few days.

Have pea packs on hand for engorgement. (I accidentally typed "Have pea packs on hand for encouragement" :)

The sleep deprivation is really difficult. You need to plan on going to bed at 8 or 9 o'clock for awhile and forgo your usual evening time after all your noisy boys are in bed.

Don't put Burts Bees Apricot Oil on the baby during the first week after he is born. If you do he will break out in acne all over his body.

Your going to be so tired that you will sit in front of your computer to blog about what to remember and your mind will go completely blank. Just go to bed.

Good night. (It is 7:48 pm)

I'm glad you can make yourself go to bed early. I am so bad at that.
