Thanks so much for your thoughtfulness in doing this!
I have been keeping my phone line open (no computer hookup) cause he has a little jaundice & new parents & grandparents are worried sick....getting updates from them throughout the day. We know he will be fine (in our heads) & that it's very common...just doesn't make it easier! Sure wish they weren't 5 hours away, but very glad I was able to be there for the birth.
ps. Suanj.....It is truly a beautiful card. Thank you.
pps. Emmy, I will get to posting links for those birth acts soon. Suanj, I think we are really going to need your help. She can only take pictures of the records with her digital camera & they are coming out really light....will try to get them as legible as possible. May need Nuccia's help too....she does better with resizing & linking!
ppps. Nuccia, thanks for linking those census records. Sorry I worried you.
pppps. Good night everyone & thanks again.

Jesse had Jandice when he was born and of course, I went nuts too. That's what we do!
My doctor told me to give him lots of sun so I picked a nice sunny window and let him sleep in his carriage by it. Took almost 2 weeks (he was born in March) but it did go away. Try not to worry too much.
Aw - what a beautiful wee baby! You must be absolutely besotted with him
Both of mine were a bit jaundiced when they were born. Apparently it is more common among people of mediterranean origin. They are both just fine, and it hasn't done them any harm. It takes a week or two for the 'suntanned' look to go away. That doesn't stop you worrying however....
That's a picture to treasure. He's a real bonny baby and lucky too, to have such a loving family and a very special Nonna. (Try not to worry, he will be OK my grandchildren had that too, I know it's ok us saying that to you but I do know how you must feel not being able to be there beside them )
Lots of love
ps. Many thanks Joyce for the pps but no hurry about the birth acts just you concentrate on your new grandson.
