Cooper gains weight at his one week check - 4kg

The UK has a really great program where a midwife comes around to your house when you get home from the hospital. The first visit was the day after we got home from the hospital, the second visit was when he was 7 days old. They weigh him (he gained weight!) and prick his heel to get some blood to test him for a variety of things.

Cooper lounges in the sun

It is recommended that he get some sunlight to help fight off jaundice. Hard to find in London in February, so we had to take advantage of all we had.

Cooper heads home

Two of the wonderful midwives that took care of us at St Mary's.

In the cab on the way home. They aren't quite as strict about car seat placement (it is sitting on the floor of the cab) as they are in the states. . .

First sleep in his crib.
