You will never guess what I slept in last night and where?!?! Mom's baby doll cradle from when she was a little girl and it was in Mom & Dad's bed! Crazy right?!??! Here I am in a pink Fisher Price doll cradle in their bed. I slept well though....must have been the pink. Mom wanted to try and sleep in a bed again but she didn't want anything to happen to me, like Daddy or Mommy rolling onto me, so we all thought we would give this a try. It is big enough for me to fit into but small enough to fit in between Mommy & Daddy's pillows. We'll see how it goes. The big thing that Mom is worried about is Dad not getting enough rest with me getting up in the night and his crazy work schedule. We'll give it a few test runs and see what happens.
Although I had a pretty restful night, I was pretty cranky all morning. My tummy was upset still and I just wanted to cry....don't you feel like just crying some days? Today was Mom's day for that too....her eyes got real leaky today....just a moody day. We all calmed down though and had a nice rest of our day. Miss Beth (child life specialist) came over to work with Joshua and Jonathan on the black & white books they are making me....they turned out really neat. Daddy and I made Amish Friendship bread....anyone want some 'cause now we need to find friends to give it to....anyone?!?!....we could even mail it since all you do it let it sit around and ferment for days on end and then it turns into yummy goodness when baked! That is what we used as my 18th birthday cake....mmmmmm delicious! Gramma & Grampa came over to celebrate my big 18 week b-day. Joshua and Jonathan were completely off the wall tonight....they sang "Happy Birthday" with shrieks and screams and yells and complete craziness.....just wait for that video. It was fun though. I was happy the rest of the night. I've been feeling ok for the most part.....I am poopin', so that is good. Mom has had to supplement my feeds a little bit with regular formula (not fortified) because her milk supply is so low.....at one point, some of you had some ideas for increasing milk supply (supplements?)....comment and let us know so I can still get the Mama-goodness.....she has increased fluids so you don't have to post that....hasn't made too much more.
2 things I forgot to tell you:
1) Friday, with all the craziness, I forgot to tell you my weigh in: 6 pounds! Ok...that was when I was "full of crap" so by Saturday, after all my poopin' I lost lots of ounces....but I still hit it!
2) I said "ma-ma" on Saturday. Mom was teasing me because I sound like a rooster all the time and Miss Teri said it was because Mom always makes those noises at me. So Mom decided to say "ma-ma" instead of funny rooster noises and guess what I said...."MA-MA!" Miss Teri was here and she witnessed it as well as Mom and Dad. They should just graduate me at the top of the class and give me my doctorate.....Docta Jake!
Well, off to the doll crib. Love the fanclub shirts??? Mom can't decide what she wants....I'll custom make her one that says "Jacob's Mom" on it or something.....she's like secretary of the fanclub so she should have her own special one.
Hug someone a little bit longer a little bit tighter.
