3. What is Baby up to these days (sleeping, eating, etc,)?
SLEEPING: He goes about 3hrs, then wakes up for a bottle, then can sleep for another 2 to 5 hrs, wakes up and comes in bed with us to snuglle. He has slept through the night twice since he was born and the 2nd night was last night (midnight till 9am) Which is good I am trying to get him s he doesn;t have a bottle at night.
EATING: He has 2 things of stage 2 slolids for lunch and dinner (veg and fruit) He is having some stage 3 food, some he doesn't like. He has had mashed potatoes, chicken, noodles (which he doesn;t care for) He loves ice cream, lol. and still has about 28-35oz in a 24 hour period. Sometimes he has 4oz of juice too and some times we have oatmeal for a late supper.

4. Any recent or up and coming apts.? He Sept. 4 for his reflux, Sept. 13 for his 9 month check up and check to see if his ear infection is gone and Sept. 17 we have a WIC. apt. (If I think his ear isn't getting better then I call and he cna be seen sooner)

5. Questions, comments, observations?
He is not crawling yet, trying really hard though. (he does crawl backwards, wierd)
He isn't trying to stand either (which is cool with me)
He can walk in his walker
As of 2 nights ago he will hold his own bottle laying down, prefers you hold it but will hold it on his own.
He loves to say dada and not mama, for a while it was all mama andnow it has stopped.
He also loves to lay on the floor and kick and kick his feet, it is very funny.
He loves animals, specailly our dogs. We took him to a kids farm last Sunday and he loved that.
He has 2 teeth on the bottom also.

1. Baby's Name
Michael Kevin

2. Birth date, how old is baby now?
December 9, he's 8 weeks and 4 days old

3. What is Baby up to these days (sleeping, eating, etc,)?
He is still not sleeping well, I may get one good night of like 4 hours straight sleeping once every 2-3 weeks. He is eating about 4oz every 2.5 to 3 hours. He sleeps in his car seat, because he can not lay flat at night and the car seat is the only thing that will work right now.

4. Any recent or up and coming He has an apt. tomorrow for his 2 month check up and shots. I have one next Friday the 16th, for my pap.

5. Questions, comments, observations?
He just loves toys! He will stare at things for ever now, he also loves his mobile on his crib and the one on his pack n play.

He also started watching cartoons yesterday and he did this morning while I took my shower and cleaned the house. He gets right into them, kicking his feet and playing with his hands.

He loves to wake up around 2-3am and play, he is so full of smiles and laughs.

Doctor's visit [Nov. 29th, 2006|12:13 pm]

I just got home from my doctors visit. My GBS test came back negative and the results from the ultrasound on my kidneys, are I have swelling on my right kidney which is part of the reason I have major back aches. Heat beat was great and so was blood pressure. Mikey’s head is down more but cervix is still CLOSED, which SUCKS! But good news is, if I have not had him by Saturday the 9th, then I will be having him. He wanted to induce this Saturday but his office is booked and likes to do it on Saturday’s so if Mikey is stubborn and doesn’t want to come out before the 9th, he will be out that day. Mike figures he will be out before that but I don’t think so. I have to go back on December 6th at 11:15am, which means I have to get early the day also. He gave me lots of information on “How do I know when I’m in labor), exercises and after the baby is born, things I can and can’t do and etc. Plus I got my flu shot while I was there, it didn’t even hurt. I told him who we wanted for Pediatrician. We talked about pain medicine and birth control, I think we are going with the one (it’s like the Norplant but it’s called something different) A small needle like thing gets inserted in your arm and is good for 3 years, it can be removing before that and you can get pregnant right afterwards if you want and if you are on it for at least 6 months, it can get rid of your period while you are on. I like that fact. So anyways that was my appt. I am happy that I know of an actual date but said because I want him here now.

Now I need to relax for a few minutes and then I have to go get my prescription filled for my kidney and pick up a gift for Mike and check on a birthday gift for my mom. Her birthday is December 24th. Oh and my nice called me today and said she is having a brother, so there will be my son born in December and Ang’s son born in April, they will be close in age and live 1 mile apart. Okay off I go for now. Hope everyone has a good day.

Question about birth plan [Oct. 28th, 2006|10:02 pm]

[mood |boredbored]

I have a quick question, I hear people talking about making their birth plans, my doctor has never mentioned one to me and no one in my family ever did one. So is it necessary to have one? This is my first baby and I want to do everything right, I am 34 weeks and 5 days pregnant. Before I know Mikey will be here with us. Thanks

The joys of pregnnacy [Sep. 19th, 2006|08:49 pm]

[mood |lonelylonely]

I figured I would update here since I Haven’t in a while. I will be 29 weeks pregnant on Friday September 22nd, which means I will only have 11 more weeks to go. Which is way cool. I had a doctors appt. yesterday and Mikey’s heat beat was 131, which was good. I guess he is in the head down position already, don’t know if that’s good or not. But I figured it must be okay since my doctor never said anything bad about it. I am calling a pediatrician tomorrow and see if I can have her, if not then I need to find someone else. Lets see I am tired a lot, hungry more often then before, I can’t see my feet, my belly is getting bigger and bigger. It’s hard to put my shoe’s on, hard to shave in the shower, basically hard to bend over. I can’t sleep at night, I toss and turn and have to pee all the time. I get major leg cramps, heart burn, headaches, burry vision and backaches. Other then that I am perfectly fine, LOL. No really I do enjoy knowing the fact that in 78 days or so I will have my son to hold, that right there is a true miracle and I would do it all over again. So far all my test that I have taken have come back good. I now have to go back and see my doctor every two weeks already. My sex life is still good but I don’t know how long it can continue, some people tell me right up till a couple weeks before you deliver but I don’t like that idea. Mikey moves around a lot when I am resting but I really wish he would let his daddy feel him move around. We start our Lamaze classes on Monday October 2nd, my husband doesn’t really want to take them but I think they will help us out a lot. Me and my husband have been doing really well through all of this, I here people say they get really cranky while being pregnant and thankfully I have not had that experience yet, I can cry easily though. I mean I have my moments where I can get upset about something but it ends very quickly. My in law baby shower is coming fast, it will be October 14th and my family shower will be probably November 4th, I wish they would do it October 21st but they don’t listen to me. Anyways I am going to get off this for now and hope the night passes by fast so my hunny will be home to hold me.
