We're hoping to leave the hospital early this evening. He's in doing his car seat test right now and they're concerned that he might not pass. So keep your

His two sisters are ANXIOUS to get their paws on him at home.

So excited to have you here!
 
on the carseat test? Is it because he is technically a premie?

Yeah, because he was considered pre-term, he had to be in the Special Care Nursery for about 7 hours and pass the car seat test.

For the test, we had to bring in our car seat (with base) and they placed him in it for 90 minutes. He wore heart rate and pulse ox monitors while he sat there. They watched how he responded while sitting in that position. They made a suggestion for how to help him fit better in the car seat, but he passed.
 


And about the girlfriend thing--he knows about the arrangement but he's waiting to hear the name of his prearranged beloved.
