So I had another comfy cozy night in my baby doll crib with Mom and Dad. I awoke like a bear again though. Although, unlike yesterday, I've had more spouts of calmness. I took a nice long morning nap while Dad and the boys hung out and Mom did some running....she grocery shopped and swung by one of my NICU nurses homes (without me?!?!...I miss my girlfriends!) to do another drop of craft supplies for the posters and cards for the NICU babies....can't wait to hear about what they do with it all. I just hung out in the Snugli with Mom or Dad the rest of the day. I fussed, sucked on my paci, dozed off, had some calm time, ate and chilled.
Notice the sidebar videos are now archived so my blog doesn't take forever to load....always looking out for my fans....gotta get your quick Jacob fix and you can't do that when it takes forever to load up. You can still view them by clicking on the title link.
Mom found out today that she was over medicating me on my new reflux med!...it was an easy mistake...my old med was 2X a day....new med is just once.....oops!.....Nurse Marleen said not to worry about it but you know how Mom's are...they get feelin' all bad and guilty....Mom does a whole lot more good than bad but sometimes it is hard for her to forgive herself the bad....I looked her in the eyes, let her know I love her sooooo much, and told her I am still here and there isn't much she can do to change that....only God in the author and finisher of all life....and after what I have survived, no reflux med is takin' me out! Live & learn....now you all go check your dosing and make sure you aren't over medicating!
Well, I'm gunna jet....almost time for some grub....and only ONE med:)

REVISED: Also, all you who are really interested in the "Blessed Friends of Jacob Bread", there are starters all over the internet.....I (Dad actually) will post the word document that has the instructions for "Blessed Friends of Jacob Bread" and you can include that as you pass on your starter. Earlier I stated I would mail them out but after some talking it over with Mom and Dad, because of the bag filling with gases as the batter ferments, it probably would explode before it got to the East Coast ....what a mess of a mail box! So, until I can think of a better way of distributing it (next day delivery?) we will have to hold off on the mailing of it. Sorry for the change in plans....you guys are all my friends, bread or no bread. :)
Starter Recipe Example....search out more of them:
1 (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast
1/4 cup warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
3 cups all-purpose flour, divided
3 cups white sugar, divided
3 cups milk
In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in water. Let stand 10 minutes. In a 2 quart container glass, plastic or ceramic container, combine 1 cup flour and 1 cup sugar. Mix thoroughly or flour will lump when milk is added. Slowly stir in 1 cup milk and dissolved yeast mixture. Cover loosely and let stand until bubbly. Consider this day 1 of the 10 day cycle. Leave loosely covered at room temperature.
On days 2 thru 4; stir starter with a spoon. Day 5; stir in 1 cup flour, 1 cup sugar and 1 cup milk. Days 6 thru 9; stir only.
Day 10; stir in 1 cup flour, 1 cup sugar and 1 cup milk. Remove 1 cup to make your first bread, give 2 cups to friends along with this recipe, and your favorite Amish Bread recipe. Store the remaining 1 cup starter in a container in the refrigerator, or begin the 10 day process over again (beginning with step 2).
Note: Once you have made the starter, you will consider it Day One, and thus ignore step 1 in this recipe and proceed with step 2. You can also freeze this starter in 1 cup measures for later use. Frozen starter will take at least 3 hours at room temperature to thaw before using.
