2lbs. in 2 weeks!!!

That's right! The big boy is getting even bigger! :) Joseph had his two week check up today (even though he's two and a half weeks old) and he weighs 10lbs. 7oz.!!! Thats a full 2 lbs more than his birth weight, in two weeks! His doctor said it was nearly unheard of for babys to gain so much so fast, especialy on a breastmilk only diet. I hope that just means the extra 20lbs I need to lose are coming off fast! :)

Other than being a good eater, Joseph is a happy healthy boy!

He's Here!!!

I know, I know! I'm really late in posting this, but I've finaly found the time/ here it is:

Joseph Douglas arrived via c-section at 7:55am on April 4th! He was 8lbs 7oz, 21 1/2 inches long. Its been a crazy (almost) two weeks. The pain from the surgery was pretty bad, but the pain meds made me way too sleepy all the time. We got home from the hospital on the saturday after his birth; made it to church the next day (it was easter for crying out loud, I had to go!); and we haven't left the house since (stairs plus new baby equals not many outings)! I started feeling a cold coming on last wednesday, and now we are all praying that baby doesn't come down with RSV! Joseph is a good sleeper (5hr blocks at night!), a great eater, and a little cuddle bug! but my biggest struggle is keeping the over zealous big kids at bay! They could probably 'love him' to death if i didn't keep a constant eye on them. Which doesn't make resting very easy. ...speaking of lack of rest, i think i'm rambling...yup, I'm rambling, it must be time to go. :)

Tomorrow, Tomorrow
I Love ya, Tomorrow
You're only a day away!!!

So, I should be out of surgery and back in my room by noon, if anyone wants to know! :)
oh! and prayers would be much appreciated, ...especially after it took 2 techs and 3 collapsed veins just to get my pre-op labs done yesterday!
