Day 101!

So we ended our evening yesterday with our friends, the Leardons. Their whole family came over to fill our evening "Daddy-less" with lots of fun in the Magical Clubhouse.....Joshua and Jonathan loved sharing the clubhouse with their friends. I just hung out on Mommy in my little tummy sling thing....I like to be close to her....and she chatted with her friends...we all had a nice evening. Then, I slept pretty good again. Mom woke up herself at 3 and fed me....I would have slept on through but since she was up she decided to full my tank. But then I my tank was buggin' me so I fussed a while after in a subconscious state and so me and Mom were both out-of-it for a couple hours. My apnea kicks in and scares me a bit so I do not rest well...same for Mom. This has become quite a regular part of my day.....I have these spells of no breathing and it makes me mad.....so I yell when I am done with them....this doesn't go over to well in the early morning hours...at least I'm yelling which usually leads to me breathing!

Then we awoke to Joshua reading Jonathan a story. Now, I'm not sure if you know this, but Mom homeschools my big brothers and since my arrival outside the womb, she has had a tough time teaching them on a regular basis....they are learning lots about life with me as their teacher, but Mom teaches them the more academic subjects. So when we awoke to Joshua reading a library book he had never seen before, and is beyond his Kindergarten requirements, it calmed Mom a little bit about making sure she gets everything in....those big brothers of mine are really bright kids and once you teach 'em the basics, they just roll with it on their own. I can't wait for Mom to teach me to read! She was just reading me all sorts of stories the other day and I loved it.....she was rubbing my hand on the fuzzy bunnies and crinkly pages......pretty neat stuff.

We all had a nice breakfast together....me and my milk and my family with their eggs and toast....and then Mom wasn't feeling herself...I'm not sure what that means but it resulted in her sleeping for a couple hours. We then headed off to the YMCA so the big boys could enjoy free swim....they liked having fun free time in the pool with Dad. Mom and I hung out in the stands and visited a few instructors. Dad then had to head off to work. Joshua and Jonathan went out in the yard and it started to rain. So they headed for shelter in the clubhouse...they really like that house. Mom and I fired up the grill and made some dinner for Gramma, Grampa and Grandfriend Bonnie. I really did do the grilling with Mom....she always needs help when she's grilling.....definitely not her forte....but we pulled it off together. Gramma and Bonnie had bags of food for us....it was great!...some people just know how to fill the little needs in life. I hung out with Grampa for a bit....I just kept staring and staring.....there is something missing on his head but I just can't place it... so I just kept staring.....I'll figure it out one of these days. We hung out and did our regular evening routine with the extra helping hands. I got a bath and liked it....until that end part when they take me out of the nice warm water into the cool air...that part stinks.....but I actually enjoyed getting in this time. I was awake most of the evening so once my belly was full, I was out cold. Then I hung out with Mom and watched American Idol eliminations....total upset! I just decided to go to sleep since I couldn't take it. Now, my belly is getting full and I am off to bed....Mom is hoping for another pretty good night....me too....no tummy aches! 101 nights....thank you Lord Jesus!

Alright Joshua and Jonathon. Sounds to me like you are doing very well in your academic world. :) Way to go mom. You are amazing!

Jacob I can hardly believe it has been 101 days. The Lord has truly blessed you and your family and many of the Bloggers such as myself. God is good and He alone knows our future. Take it easy on mom and dad with the apnea stuff. My little one (who is now 17 years old) use to scare me to death when those things went off.

Take care of mommy and daddy and your big brothers and I look forward to hearing from you again tomorrow.

Good nite and God Bless

Hi Jacob, I'm checking in on you and praying that your breathing evens out so that the monitor doesn't go off. I love seeing the videos of you with your big brothers. Jonathan and Joshua are very helpful and obviously love you lots! Can't wait to see photos of the three of you in the Magic Clubhouse.

Stay strong - Lynne B.

Mom you give me hope that I can do this homeschooling, too. I can get overwhelmed with my two big boys, and little one and think I will not serve my children well. If you can do it with all these dr. appts and sleep apnea episodes, then what am I complaining about. You all are so inspiring! Thanks for the reality check. And Jacob, I hope you got to enjoy Grey's Anatomy with Mommy last night.

With love and prayers,

Cheryl
