February 1 baby update

Chicago is supposed to get a blizzard tonight - the biggest storm since 1967. Let's see if the weather lives up to the hype...

I just called the hospital for an update on Jocelyn. She is still a rockstar - she continues to be brady episode-free - we're bearing down on the final hours. Tonight at 11 p.m. or so will be the five-day mark. Please let us make it there!

She surprised us all with her 9 p.m. weigh-in last night. She had been moved into her big-girl bed the night before, and we were asking a lot of her little body. We were asking her to work harder to generate her own heat, to continue to eat well and possibly gain weight. The nurses forewarned me that she actually might lose weight.

Well, guess what: She not only gained weight but she gained more than she ever has before in a 24-hour period, going from 4 lb to 4 lb 3 oz! I guess our collective prayer line to God is really working!
