It doesn't look like he's going to hold a grudge.
Happily, he has gained three pounds since he was born a week ago at 6 pounds, topping the scale now at 9 pounds. Rachel weighed 8 pounds today. They're growing well. I don't expect this little operation to stunt Moses too badly, but we'll keep an eye on him. In fact, he took it much better than Shadrach did three years ago - my, what a drama queen HE was. No, our little stoic did very well and dealt with the whole ordeal by taking a nap. In a few minutes he was up nursing and bouncing around just like before.
Another big milestone under our belt.
