3 weeks

I can not believe that tomorrow my little "Cheeks" will be 3 weeks old. Holy Moley! He is just so freakin adorable I can't stand it!!!!! He makes me laugh all the time & the expressions he makes cracks everyone up. He really only fusses when he is really hungry or has a poopie diaper. If he is wet, he just hangs out. Doesn't seem to bother him. He's a bit gassy but I don't know if that's from the iron in his formula or the fact that he is a Buchman. I have never seen a family of men with more gas problems in my life! Ethan's smell bad as well. Like his father's. :>)

He goes back to the dr. on Sept 19th. I am anxious to see what he weighs. Not anxious for the 19th. That just means we are closer to me returning to work. I seriously don't think I can leave "Cheeks." I am still searching for other daycare options. I have a girl, who is on my way to work, but I want to see if I can find someone else or maybe a facility. It is going to kill me to have leave him. I get upset just thinking about it. I can imagine my 1st day back to work. I will be a nervous wreck all day just waiting to see my Ethan!

Ok, enough about that depressing topic. I had my follow up appt. today at the ob/gyn. Everything looks good. I have to go back in a week b/c my incision is a tad red but they gave me antibiotic to help it heal, otherwise she said it looks great. On an even better note, I lost 44lbs. Which means I am thinner by 14lbs than I was when I 1st went in Jan for my 1st pregnancy appt. Yay me! I should have more babies!!!!

Sleep deprevation has hit. Not Ethan or the Bobster but moi! Ethan likes to eat hourly some nights, just taking a bit here & there & then other nights he eats normally every 3 hrs., which works out to about an hour & a half of sleep for the mommy by the time he eats & gets put in his crib. It's all worth it tho!!!! I can't get enough of Ethan. I love holding him. Especially when he curls up on my chest & then he will sigh as if he is so content with the world. Man! The babe is just too cute!!!!!!! I need to see about getting his newborn photos taken. Hopefully not too expensive but the lady I want to do them does fabu work so I am sure it will not be "Wally World" cheap.

The house is coming along. Not fast enough for me but I have to learn to deal with it. The Bobster, he could live in a mud hut & it wouldn't bother him. Gotta love him for that, or is it gotta have him tarred & feathered for that? Hee hee.

I have more pics of "Cheeks." As soon as I find the photo card scanner I will post a few on here. I got some gratitious nudey shots. How can one resist a tushie shot of a 2 week old!

Gots to go!
Woops out!

Meghan I'm so sorry to hear that you're going to have to go back to work and leave the new little man with a sitter. It is the hardest thing to do! When I went back to work (aidan was 3 mos) I hated it! It was by far the hardest thing I've ever done. and it doesn't really get much easier. He's now almost 4 and I still hate to drop him off.(I'm just lucky that I was able to have family watch him) I sometimes feel like I've missed to much. But he is a wonderful little boy. Enjoy him while he's tiny, they're so precious. Can't wait to see more pictures. Judging by the last post his an absolute cutie pie!

Take care and get lots of rest!
