Just for laughs


Of course its blurry - because he is in constant motion.  He's a little obsessed with my milk at the moment... and all things related.  

Merritt had an unofficial weight check yesterday.  With a onesie and wet diaper, she weighed 5#12oz, so the nurse said she would document 5#10oz for the diaper.  We have our official weigh-in tomorrow where they will strip her down.  But regardless, it was up - which is all the docs want to see.  She is pretty fussy most of the time.  At first I thought it was colic (Mattox was extremely fussy til around 3 months old), but her neonatologist reminded me that it was probably O related.  All the pressure on every organ is making her stomach hurt.  Usually after filling her diaper up, she is okay, but it seems she is constantly working on her diaper.  Gotta love newborns!  She also still likes to be held ALOT... again, reminds me of Mattox.  But hallelujah!--she likes the swing!  To me, she looks like Mati Claire but acts more like Mattox! lol!   Anyway, we are getting little to NO sleep around here.  And Kindergarten is starting for Mati Claire in just a few days!  Whew!  Between her school stuff (and I joined PTO), Merritt's doctors appointments, Matt going back to work, and Mattox -- well, just being Mattox -- I am exhausted just looking at the month of August.  Luckily mom is here for a little bit longer to help me get settled!

Here's to our "new normal" that I prayed for for so many months.  It came a little quicker than I imagined.  But it just goes to show you God answers prayers! in His timing.  I still stand amazed and completely changed.  

"I will dwell in them and walk among them.  I will be their God, and they shall be My people." 2 Corinthians 6:16
