A few changes

The best news, I got 5 hours of solid sleep last night. Then when Jackson woke up he nursed. It has been almost 24 hours with out a bottle wa-hoo! We went to his 2 week check up yesterday he is now weighing in at 9lbs 8oz. He is doing well for him self. He is in about the 75th percentile so he is a decent size kid!

If today is bliss yesterday was just about the opposite. The baby is still adorable, and it is a good thing too. I was so beyond tired, I could be found doing something silly. I ended up with a headache, blurry spots in my vision, and at the doctors appointment I had a hard time focusing on the questionnaire, hopefully I answered the post partum questions correctly! I came home and Jeremy took the kids from about 1pm to 5pm while I slept and rested. It was much needed and felt awesome. It feels like Jackson has been in our home forever, like there was not life without him. It's hard to believe it has only been two weeks.

In other news, the day Jackson got circumcised, Lauren got her shots. She has been having a mild fever earlier this week and this morning I changed her diaper and discovered this

She has been cranky and a little fever, and not eating. So when we saw the rash we were able to say a-ha, here's the reason...other than a new baby to change her place in the family, of course! It fits in with a reaction to her immunizations so hopefully it will pass soon. She has been so sleepy. We have been giving her naps but by dinner time she is beside her self so we put her down for another nap. She will sleep for 5:00pm until 6:30 or 7:00 in the morning. Luckiy it's not contagious otherwise Jackson and I may need to evacuate the premises, maybe someplace like Hawaii. A girl can dream right?!

Lastly, my helpmeet is going back to work on Monday. I am sure going to miss him. Not just because he has been letting me not help get the kids ready for school, making them lunch, cooking, cleaning, cleaning, cooking, shopping, staying up late with me. I am just complete when he is near me and it is always an adjustment when he goes back to work. I am such a baby. He still will get to come home for lunch and will still be off by 4:30 most days, and I will still get to sleep in on Wednesdays. So with all the rambling, thank you Jeremy for making this tough adjustment with me, for being supportive and comforting. Thanks for taking the time off of work while you watch the pile grow in your absence. I am not sure I could have made it through this last week without you by my side. I love you!

No way Jackson is two weeks old already. Wasn't he just born yesterday? My DD ended up with spots like that after her chicken pox vaccine. We were really worried because they came two weeks afterwards and we didn't connect the two until we called the doctor, who told us it was normal.

April you boy is beautiful, but then I wouldn't expect anything less since all your kids are cute as buttons.
