We have a pediatrician's visit this morning.

His weekend went okay. Our nurse called off for a noncontagious illness on Saturday night, so we had our first slumber party as a family in the living room. Jenna basically stayed up until 3:30am then I took over from 3:30 on. We caught up on sleep throughout the day on Sunday.
He still has periods of rapid breathing and white/clear nasal secretions. He is adjusting to the new air in our house.
Overall, we have not had to make any emergency calls during the first 4.5 days (knock on wood) so it has been a success. His feedings could be going a little smoother and his sleep schedule does not follow a schedule, therefore we have room for improvement. I am praying for a weight gain.

Sounds like you guys are doing great! Babies usually need to be at least 10 pounds before they sleep for long periods of time. It is usually on demand for the first 4-6 months, especially breast fed babies. Breast milk digests faster and so they are hungry sooner. Hang in there.
