Good morning! Such a pretty day here in So. California. Yesterday, my sister's daughter Michelle gave birth to Jacob Scott. What a blessing it was to be there and share in all of their joy. He weighed 8 pounds, 2 oz. and mother and baby are doing great. Should be going home some time today. It was the quickest labor I have ever seen, and it had it's pros and cons. The pros are obvious of course. No one ever feels like hours and hours of hard labor. But the stress of everything moving quickly is large, and then there was no time for an epidural for pain, and the baby had a few minor problems do to his quick entrance, but all is well that ends well. Here is a picture of this little sweetie.
Other than that, my incision is healing very nicely. I had to keep it dry for a couple of days and it sure was nice to hop into my shower this morning. Don't realize how much I love a good, hot shower, haha, until I can't take one.
My dil got her due date when she went to the docs on Wed. 12/12/12!! Kind of fun huh? Not real likely they will hit this actual date, but would be kind of neat. She is experiencing the usual morning sickness etc., but hopefully is through the worst of it.
Hubby and I are going to spend the week-end sorting through cupboards and closets trying to rearrange things to make room for my mom. Not really looking forward to it I am not going to lie. Some things will have to be gotten rid of and we have already been kind of ruthless when we moved here in the first place, but at the end of the day they are just things. What's funny is how much you can accumulate.
My Melody is sick with a BAD cold, and is pretty miserable. Wish I lived closer to so little Sam could hang out with Grandma for a while so she can rest. He is quite the mobile little guy. He has figured out how to open her dresser drawers (for goodness sake Sam! haha) and pulls him self upright using a WALL! None of my babies ever did that, lol. I think he just wants to be upright. They lowered his crib so that his little head is barely peeking over the top now though when he stands up in there...thank goodness. He sleeps 12 hours or better at night though, praise God, lol, but I think it's because he moves so when he is awake. He just turned 7 months old and I have to show you the picture she took of him for his monthly one she has been doing as it soooo suits this little guys feel. This was the best one she could get as he refused to sit still. I am betting he will be walking by 9 months! His personality is happy, sweet, and easy. What a blessing he is! Praying you feel better soon Mel!
|IT IS BLURRY TO BOOT, HAHA, HIS EXPRESSION SEEMS TO BE SAYING, "WHAT MOM,? I'VE THINGS TO DO!"|
I will end this with a verse that has been going round and round in my head and heart this week...
Psalm 28:7 The Lord IS my strength and my shield, my heart trusted in Him, and I am helped, therefore my heart greatly rejoices. And with my song I will praise Him!
Just doesn't get any better! Hope you all have a wonderful week-end!
