Day 45!

Here's a shot of me and Mommy today.... but first I have to tell you about a funny story that happened last night after I posted my blog. Me, Mommy and Daddy all sat down on the couch to watch "Across the Universe" (because Mommy used to be a HUGE beatles fan) and of course I fell asleep. Well, little did Mommy know that she was sitting on my OG tube. No big deal because it was all capped off and I was wrapped in blankets. Except.... the cheap end on it broke off and so my whole stomach drained slowly out of my blanket and on to the couch and Mommy's bottom! She never even realized it until she stood up and felt my blanket all wet! This picture reminds me of that little incident because she has a smile on her face like, "I have to love him.... even when he pukes on me without getting a drop on himself!" and I have a look on my face like, "Yes! I got her!" :)
So today I went and saw the doctor... now that he's back from his little escapade to Disney World... (without me!) And he weighed me buck naked and I'm...... 4 pounds 4 ounces! That means I've gained 7 ounces in the past two weeks! Much better than the loss of 2 ounces last time I was in there! Everybody was very happy! All the nurses came and goo goo'd over me...I wonder what they do when I'm not around? My poor brother Jonathan even tried to get pink eye just to get some attention but even then he only ended up with a sty in his eye!
We went and picked up Joshua at Gramma and Grampa's and had lunch with them. I slept through most of it... Joshua and Jonathan played Hide And Go Seek with Daddy... but I'm not very good at hiding... I'm always in the same spot.... and it's hard to seek when you're sleeping!
Mom went home and took a nap since she was up worrying about me last night again. So I took a nap on Daddy's chest out on the couch. My brothers took very good care of me and played quietly by themselves after their nap so that me and Daddy could get a little shut-eye.
I enjoyed listening to Mommy finish the Wizard of Oz book with my brothers before they went off to bed tonight. Me and Mommy are heading to the couch but she's been talking about putting me in a swing all day so we'll see how that goes if she remembers. Hope you had a as relaxing and hope filled day as I did!

I had to laugh at the story. I have done that before too. Only I was up in the NICU and had to walk through the hospital and it looked like I had a terrible accident.

I know I don't post I have been reading for a long time. Thanks for bringing back that memory. It was a good one. I never forgot to check where the NG was after that. lol

I am praying for you and your whole family. Jacob and all of your boys are just so adorable.
Many hugs and prayers.
