Elden had his newborn pictures yesterday. Liz, the talented photographer, provided us with this sneak peek:

I can't wait to see the rest!! If you're in the greater Cleveland area, I highly recommend Liz. You can find her blog here. She's also on Facebook!

After his newborn pics we took him to the doctor for a weight check. He came in at 9 pounds 11 ounces--a full pound heavier than his appointment last week. The doctor was quite pleased with his progress. Then last night Elden threw up after feeding... twice. Not spit-up but projectile vomit. I called the children's hospital ER and they said to let him rest for an hour and re-attempt to feed. If he threw up again we needed to come in. We waited anxiously, sent out a mass text prayer request, and tried again around 9. Little man kept it down like a champ. I was worried each feeding throughout the night but he didn't even dry heave (he did that after the 9 pm feeding). The other amazing part? HE SLEPT LIKE A CHAMP FROM THE BEGINNING OF THE NIGHT. This was HUGE for us because every night he had a fussy phase for at least 3 hours that was exhausting. 

In other news, Jon shaved off his beard. He's had his beard since I met him in 2006. I'm in mourning. I don't want to talk about it.

Elden is also too big for newborn diapers now. We moved him to a Size 1 this morning. It broke my heart--this is happening too fast!
