Life or something like it...

Looking at my blog archive and the fact that I went from 33 posts in January to just 10 in February... you can tell something major happened!

Baby facepalm
Right now I'm blogging with a baby snuggling on me - poor kiddo, I keep putting him down to sleep and he keeps waking up. I don't mind the snuggling all that much though, I enjoy it cuz Jay's just too darn cute!

Anyways, I feel like I've been neglecting this blog, as I've been updating the family/baby blog more as more stuff related to Jay has been going on lately.

My apologies!

I hope you enjoyed the Flashback to First Kisses series the past few weeks - I'll be sure to try and blog over here a little more than I have, it's just been a crazy month!

First we had the Snowpocalypse, then we ended up having Jay several weeks earlier than expected. The first week or so was rough what with all the adjusting to life with a newborn and the lack of sleep and being able to do much anything... the 2nd week was a little better but still rough... the 3rd week and into the 4th was spent practically living at the hospital as Jay wasn't growing and they couldn't figure out why and yeah...

Other than just basic Failure to Thrive they couldn't figure out anything that was wrong with him. But with the continuous feeding for several days he was able to get used to having food in his tummy and I guess it stretched his tummy out a bit too to get used to having x-amount of food in it to be full. By the time we left the hospital he was eating at least 2oz easily every 3 hours. They have him on high calorie formula and he always eats at least 2.5oz per feeding if not more like 3oz and sometimes he'll drink 3.5oz if he's really hungry. We have a visiting nurse visiting us twice a week for 2 weeks (this is her last week) just to weigh him and we had our follow-up from the hospital at the doctor's office today and he said he feels a lot better about him now, as his weigh is up to 7lbs, 6oz (from 6lbs, 1oz 2 weeks ago) and he just looks better in general not to mention most of his clothes fit him a lot better now.

I can't believe my baby is already a month old! Granted being in the hospital for a whole week kinda "lost" that week, but still...

He's such an ornery little stinker!
He's got his eyes open all the time when he's awake now, he's getting pretty good at holding his head up, loves sucking on his binky (pacifier), likes to look and stare at things, and tries to crawl when we put him down for tummy time (which we usually have to cut short as he gets too frustrated and red in the face because he can't crawl yet despite him trying and having the leg motions down as he doesn't have the upper arm strength).

I also canceled my WoW account again just today - my last day is the 21st. Honestly, the last month I just haven't had the time to even login, let alone actually play. My freetime, when I'm not out doing something for the sake of getting out, I'm either trying to catch up with stuff online (thank you for having a smartphone!) or I'm napping every chance I get. No point in paying $15/mo for WoW when I don't have the time for it right now. Maybe once Jay is on an actual schedule and sleeping in his own bed for more than an hour or so (he doesn't like sleeping alone - he prefers to snuggle) I'll reactive it and finish leveling up my alts, but for now I'm done - I barely had a chance to even check my Facebook the first week or so, friends thought I had fallen off the face of the earth as said it was weird not seeing me on and posting regularly!

I'll save our news about the house in the next post, as well as an update on my 101 in 1001 list!

  1. Aw, he's so cute! I'm glad to hear he's doing well. I'm sure things will calm down eventually and you'll be able to get back into gaming. But for now I'd say it's a very worthwhile exchange :)
