First Visit to the Pediatrician

On Tuesday we took Will to the pediatrician for the first time.   Our appointment was at 9:30 and I slept until 8:30.  Needless to say, we were rushing get there on time.  Mom and I met Michael at the office at 9:30 and we went to the "new baby" area to wait. 

When it was our turn, we went to the back and they weighed Will.  He weighed 6 pounds even.  Since birth he has dropped 9 ounces.  But, even with my feeding debacle, he didn't lose too much weight.  

His appointment went well.  Dr. Johnson didn't have any concerns other than jaundice.  He took a blood sample for testing and let us know that he would call us later with the results.  Everything was fine - but he wants to see him again on Thursday. 

Next, mom and I went to Babies-R-Us to buy a co-sleeper.  I have always said that I would NEVER let one of our kids sleep in bed with us.  I have broken every rule that I have ever set with Will.  I justify it by reminding myself that he is still supposed to be snuggled up tight in my belly.  He is just too little to be left alone. I also got him some "Tom's" baby lotion - it smells so good!

When we got home I spent some time trying to get caught up on the blog.  Then Will and I took a nap. 

Papa came up later to bring my old freezer from college and to visit.  He played basketball with the boys and had dinner with us too. 

Will wasn't too keen on being left alone during dinner so I wrapped him up in Aunt Sharon's wrap and he slept quietly through the entire dinner. 

Next it was bath time. 

This baby loves laying in a warm bath. 

After the bath we put Finn and Sam in bed and Michael, Mom and I sat upstairs until bedtime.  Will actually laid in his bassinet and slept by himself for the first time.

Finn and Sam give Will absolutely NO personal space whatsoever.  They are always in face yelling and grabbing on him.  For a few minutes he will tolerate it.

Then he gets mad and starts swinging those arms.  I have warned both boys that they deserve whatever Will dishes out. 

Last Thursday was Finn's field day.  He wasn't too excited about it because he didn't get to participate at all.  He was even more upset by the fact that he only came home with a "participants" ribbon.  I guess Finn expected to get a ribbon for "Best Score Keeper."

Mexico Beach

Today I embarked on my first ever “girls’ trip.”  I have always had friends that went with their other girl friends on beach vacations, but I have never been on one myself. 
The trip started at 6:30 a.m.  I kissed the boys goodbye (Finn woke up to make sure that he got a hug) and hopped in my newly cleaned van to head to Robyn’s house. I had originally intended to meet Samantha and Karen in Hendersonville, but I spent a little too much time with the boys and got behind.  Instead, we met at Robyn’s house a little after 7:00.
Once we all arrived, we packed up the van and set out for 109.  The van has really come in handy.  We were able to get all of our suitcases, bag, pillow, etc. packed neatly into the van with room to spare.

We officially hit the road at 7:30 – the destination – Mexico Beach Florida.  Samantha’s mom has a condo that she graciously let us rent at a ridiculously low price.  The crew consisted of Samantha, Robyn, Karen and myself.  Samantha sat up front with me; Robyn an…


Today Finn and Sam put on their new Upward  uniforms. Sam took one look at Finn and said “Finn, do you want to be twin basketball brothers?”  Even though Sam said it with as much sincerity and excitement me had in his little body, Finn respectfully declined.
Instead they danced like ladies and gentlemen danced in days of yore. They looked hilariously awkward.
