Good and Bad

First, as you see, The good. He's doing well, sleeping 3-4 hours at night so nights for the most part, we're able to get sleep. He's doing well.
Now the bad news. Sarah has a rash. At first we didn't think it was much....then it spread. Then we took her to the doctors, and gave us a fright. It is either impetigo...which is the semi-good thing or Herpes, which is a bad thing. Impetigo is only semi-good, as if it spreads anymore...she has to go to the hospital and get IV antibiotics......if its could turn into meningitis if Christopher catches it and goes to his brain and kill him.....
Even worse...Sarah's and ONLY Sarah's medical insurance has lapsed due to paperwork screaming mommy bear later and yes its their fault...Their recorded phone calls show it. But she still wont be covered till Oct. But they will reimburse for 3 months prior....gee thanks.
Then it gets worse. The pharmacy only 2 of the three meds for Impetigo. They didnt have the Herpes one......and its 1/2 an hour till we roll the dice and try and get it the next day after 2pm......
So today....they don't have it. They will have it good. Doctor sends the prescription else where and we have it.
Better news looks like it was looks clearing up. But cross your fingers....

Alright already

Sheesh, new pictures as requested.

One week Old

Ok ok, now he's eight days, but yesterday he's was one week old....he's still a peanut.

His docotor's appointment was good. He did so well the doctor doesnt want to see him for a month, rather than two weeks as normal. He gained 3 ounces in the two days between hospital discharge and Doctor's appointment.....

Sarah is now introducing her brother with the nickname of "squirt". Three quesses why....

All is well

All is going well. Sarah is jumping from a touch of jealousy to being a mother hen with him.

Tomorrow is his first doctors appointment.....

And now another picture...

We're Home....

We're home! Home today, we got discharged by noon, so we had all day at home.

Once we got them settled, its been a bit running aroun doing laundry, shopping(I had to go to Target to get a nursing bra for her....) and some food shopping...

Its just us. No more visitors. Our neighbor brought over a cassorole...but I also cooked a steak to give her some iron intake, and some corn. And now cooking is a nice peach dump cake for dessert.....
Christopher is being SO you know tonight will be crazy...:D

Christopher Thomas

We got a phone call at slightly after 7am this morning. It was the hospital calling. They called to say, even though no one called, we were suppose to be in for a 8am surgery quick showers, phone calls to her family to let them know the timing has changed and a fast drop off at our friends house we drove down to the hospital.

The delivery went well, extremely well. Christopher was born in about twenty minutes from the time they cut mommy open to plopping him on the examine table....screaming for the whole world to here. This one is a pisser. He knows what he wants and can scream loud enough to make his wishes understood. When they wheeled mommy in from recovery, the nurse came in and said "normally we dont ask after three hours, but this one is not only cute, but completely stubborn, so would you like to try nursing?" Mommy was well enough to try. A bit stubborn, but he's finally getting the hang of it tonight as I type.
Mommy is fine. A bit of reaction to some of the meds early on, but MUCH better now tonight as I type. Heck as of 10pm, the nurses are going to take her out and let or help her bath.....Mommy's a tough one. I left the nurses instructions that if she tries to much, duct tape her to the bed so she doesnt pull out her staples....He's been tagged with an ankle braclet, and mommy and daddy have one with a matching code. So no one can have mix ups....and if you try and leave the ward....alarms go off.

Christopher was born 6 pounds, 14 ounces, 20 inches long and the pinkest baby you will ever see. He is the EXACT same weight as sarah was, and only 1 inch shorter....

Without further ado.....

The Man Rules.

I figured I help all you ladies out a bit.....:D

The Man Rules******************* At last a guy has taken the time to write this all down

Finally , the guys' side of the story.( I must admit, it's pretty good.) We always hear " the rules"
From the female side. Now here are the rules from the male side. These are our rules!

Please note.. these are all numbered "1 " ON PURPOSE!

1. Men are NOT mind readers.

1. Learn to work the toilet seat.You're a big girl. If it's up, put it down.We need it up, you need it down.You don't hear us complaining about you leaving it down.

1. Sunday sports
It's like the full moon or the changing of the tides.
Let it be.

1. Shopping is NOT a sport.
And no, we are never going to think of it that way.

1. Crying is blackmail.

1. Ask for what you want. Let us be clear on this one:
Subtle hints do not work!
Strong hints do not work!
Obvious hints do not work!
Just say it!

1. Yes and No are perfectly acceptable answers to almost every question.

1. Come to us with a problem only if you want help solving it.
That's what we do.Sympathy is what your girlfriends are for.

1. Anything we said 6 months ago is inadmissible in an argument.
In fact, all comments become Null and void after 7 Days.

1. If something we said can be interpreted two ways and one of the ways makes you sad or angry, we meant the other one

1. You can either ask us to do something
Or tell us how you want it done. Not both.
If you already know best how to do it, just do it yourself.

1. Whenever possible, Please say whatever you have to say during commercials..

1. Christopher Columbus did NOT need directions and neither do we.

1. ALL men see in only 16 colors, like Windows default settings.
Peach, for example, is a fruit, not A color.
Pumpkin is also a fruit.
We have no idea what mauve is.

1. If it itches, it will be scratched.
We do that.(Erin, that one is for you)

1. If we ask what is wrong and you say "nothing,"
We will act like nothing's wrong.
We know are lying, but it is just not worth the hassle.

1. If you ask a question you don't want an answer to,
Expect an answer you don't want to hear.

1. When we have to go somewhere, absolutely anything you wear is fine.. Really .

1. Don't ask us what we're thinking about unless you are prepared to discuss such topics as baseball or sex.

1. You have enough clothes.

1. You have too many shoes.

1. I am in shape.
Pear IS a shape!

Thank you for reading this.
Yes, I know, I have to sleep on the couch tonight;

But did you know men really don't mind that? It's like camping

Target. Again.

The mrs had me run out to Target for a few things last night, since its close. But I swear, I do NOT see what the rest of you see in Target. Ugh. I know you folks seem to have low rent people at your WalMart, but seriously, all of mine seem to go to Target. Give me the super WalMart any day over Target!

Lets start with finding stuff. Cant find bathmats for I ask the person working there. Big mistake. Why? Because apparently they didnt have anyone around that speaks english! Come on...for goodness sake, english people, english! So after saying "Children's Bathmat Bbbbbbbaaaaatttthhhh Mmmmmaaaaatttttt" for the 20th time slowly, someone comes over that at least understands english and then translates, speaking gibberish between the two, before she nods in understanding and takes me over to where they are.

Except, apparently, they left off the "childrens" part. I'm NOT going back and play russian telephone again. Screw that.Sarah can have a nice white one, some frogs and stars individual ones.

Then they're out of the extended 300 DVD. Thats just criminal right there. It was only released that day for Christ sake!

Then lets talk about the shoppers. I was there for 20 minutes tying to find that damn bath mat and get a english translator, there was the women with 4 children in the toy department telling her son to pick something. And every time I passed, I hear "I'm going to count to three and then your leaving without something. 1, 2, 2 and a half, 2 and three quarters..." More than a couple times, very time I passed. It was funny. Lady, dont threaten if your not going to follow through...

The there is the cashier, in the closed pharmacy section, at the register, waiting to ring people up. Why? Its closed, you were there every time I passed expecting to ring people out, but the roll gate is down behind you.

Then the mother and daughter duo, having and argument. Over cowboy boots. *shudder*

I managed to escape by the skin of my teeth, as before they could suck me in. That counting mom managed to get up front......

No more Target, thank you.
