I'm just me: wife to Mike for 9 years, mom to three great kids I can hug and kiss every day and one babe I can't wait to hold in my arms again one day soon. I'm always looking to improve my faith life and be a better wife and mother.

why yes there is a new baby in our house

Gosh life with a baby is busy! LOL

I promise we are still alive. Things really are going well. Zachary is just like his daddy in his dislike of me spending any amount of time online. I might get to check my email once a day, if I am lucky! LOL What a difference from the "freedom" of checking it 20+ times a day just a short month ago.

I can not believe my baby is a month old already. He's getting to be a chubby wubby too! LOL I'm loving watching the rolls build up. This last week he's decided that his eyes do actually stay open more than 3 1/2 minutes at a time. In fact he's actually managed to stay awake and alert for over an hour several times a day! No reactive smiles yes, still just reflexes, but I think we're getting pretty close. He coos a little bit too...but the big thing he does is CRY and SCREAM. I think it's colic, pretty regularly from about 4 PM to 9 PM or so every night. I'm coping pretty well with big crying fit from me YET. LOL

Oh...the doctor showed Zachary how to roll from his belly to his back at his 5 day and his 2 week appt...he can roll over. It's not real often so I haven't officially called him a rolling over baby...but he can sure do it when he wants to.

Nursing is going really well. No cracked or bleeding nipples like I had with Haley by this time. I think I had gone to the doctor about 4 times in the first month I was nursing her for all kinds of issues. So far no issues with Zachary. I do hope we can continue for another 11 months this way.

His arm is healing very well, he started using it last week with no pain. He has a check up with the orthopedic doc on Tuesday, not sure if we'll be getting a repeat x-ray or not though. The insurance company is still being slow about adding Zachary on so no physical therapy just yet. Soon, I'm sure.

OK, hungry baby...gotta go.
