It's been a very rough morning because Benjamin seems to feel 100% better. Matthew is at home with Andrew (going to drop him off at my parents' soon) so it's just B and me. He's been wide awake since 5:45 and wants to either be held all the time or be allowed to roll all around in his crib. Unfortunately, I can't allow that b/c he still has a tube in his nose and an IV in his foot. (Neither one is actually attached to anything, but they're left in until the last minute in case they're needed.) So I have barely had time to go to the bathroom, much less do important things like pump or eat breakfast. And to top it all off, they forgot my grits this morning. ARG!
So while I'm dying to take a shower and pump (ouch), I am glad through all this surface-level frustration that we're almost over this hurdle. If only B would take a nap now so I could type with both hands. :)
Here are some pictures from the past few days.
In daddy's arms. What a sweetie!
Lovin' the McDonald's straw.
Surrounded by his toys.
Look at how cute his hands look! Almost like they're folded.
Not one of his prouder moments. Here he is writhing in pain waiting for the Dulcolax to kick in. And boy did it. :)
You know they're feeling better when they start to look mischievous...
Here is Matthew's food from Amigo a couple nights ago. A full order of nachos supreme with mild salsa on the side. (Our shared chips and cheese dip are in my picture.)
I can't remember what was so funny, but I thought this was a cute picture. Then the rest are just extras from hanging out on the couch with Daddy.
Okay. Phew. Matthew is here now, so I'm going to go take care of some things. I hope that our next post is from home. Now I need a break and some SLEEP! I spent the last five out of six nights on this bouch with nurses coming in and out all night (though they're quiet and did well to not disturb--I'm a light sleeper), and most of my waking hours here the last seven days. I'm exhausted!!!
Thank you all for your prayers and visits, emails and blog comments. We love you all!!!!!
