Wha- Who— eh?

I suck. I know I do. How many times have we heard this? LOL


I keep procrastionating writing a post b/c I need to do the other half of my birth story…so then I just don’t write anything b/c the other half of my birth story is looooong..

I am just going to give an update and get back to that when I do. πŸ™‚

Oat is 8 weeks old!! OMG. REALLY? Adjusted age is what- 18 days old?

His last weight was 8#5oz- and that was 10 days ago. I think he is pushing 9.5 pounds now. He holds his head up and looks around a lot. He focuses on our faces and will turn his head towards our voices.

Every night Kingman reads him a bedtime story and then we put him down to sleep. I swear he listens to every word. Even if he is crying he will stop and just stare at Kingman. I don’t know if this has anything to do with the fact he read to my belly every (most) night when I was pregnant or just b/c he jsut hears me all day long. IDK- but it is precious.

Breast feeding is going well–ish. I think I have overactive let down b/c Oat pulls off a lot and chokes. Also, manyu times he has pulled of and I have a full force spray- hitting him in his face. It is actually funny in a really mean Mommy way. He is thrashing his head around to get away and it is going up his nose, in his eyes, etc. tee hee.Β  Maybe related- he has reflux. 😦 So bad that his little nose get so congested after he eats and you can see him trying to not throw up. (which he does about once a day)

We are a little happy family and it is fun getting to know this little miracle.

OH- few things I have learned…

1.keep burp cloths (prefold diapers) in every room. At all times. Keep them on had at ALL places you sit regularly.

2. Binkies can make a kid throw up.

3. Cloth diapering is really not that hard.

4. A preemie 4# kid can fart as loud as his dad. Thankfully not as stinky.

5. Nothing is more terrifying than that first night at home.

  1. Oh my goodness 8 weeks already..time is flying.

    I agree about the burp clothes..the ones I don’t use for dusting now are still in every room of our house to catch spit, boogers, food we tried and didn’t like..even 3 yr old need burp clothes it seems.

    So happy for u sweetie…and thank goodness that first night is over right…it was terrifying bringing both of them home…we looked at each other…”now what?” LOL.

    Hugs from me.

  2. Like Kir said – I can’t believe its been 8 weeks already! wowzers!

    I love the image of you hosing this little baby down with milk – you crack me up!

  3. Great to hear from you. Sounds like you are really enjoying life right now. Beautiful!

  4. 8 weeks! Wow! So happy things are going well πŸ™‚

  5. I’m so glad y’all are enjoying Sweet Oat so much! For months I woke up every hour just to touch Davie and be sure she’s still breathing. She’s almost 6 months now, and now I only wake up 3 or 4 times a night. Of course, Troy wakes up some, too, so between the two of us, we check on her all night long. I dunno how long it takes before that goes away!
