The good news is that before Thanksgiving I lost six pounds. The bad news is that I gained three back. Oh, well.
We put up our Christmas tree and outside wreaths the weekend before Thanksgiving, and it all looks so good! I want to take a picture of the outside later. Maybe tomorrow when it's a little warmer than 35 degrees.
I took Benjamin to the doctor today for his flu shot booster, one vaccination, a hearing recheck, and a weight check. And........HE PASSED HIS HEARING TEST IN BOTH EARS!!! I am so relieved. Hearing problems are common with Down syndrome babies. So we are cleared for another few months when he'll get rechecked. His weight was up to 13 lbs, 14 oz! That is up eight ounces in 13 days, which is really good. I never did give him formula; I just nursed him longer and he's now on solids twice a day.
Sorry I haven't been updating my blog. Truth is, I've been busy. And tired. And a little depressed. But just a little. Nothing to stress about. It's just starting to become more and more of a reality that I have a child with Down syndrome. Sometimes I don't think about it for several hours but then I remember. And it's still sad. More on that later. Right now it's naptime. I hope and pray both boys sleep b/c Momma is pooped.
But here are some pictures first:
Nothing says Christmas like a piggyback ride around the tree.
Look, Andrew, here are more things you are not allowed to touch!
