Zach has some congestion. He sounds like a little pig snorting around some times. It is not too terribly bad yet. I had to get the bulb suction thing after his little nose to help him sleep and eat better last night. He HATES it. He screams and wiggles and tries to push my hands away. It breaks my heart. I know that I will be doing things that he does not like but are for his own good a lot more as he grows up. But, it is SO hard.
He slept all night in his bassinet. This is the first time. He has ended up on my chest. I know this is a terrible habit, but in the wee hours of the morning it works for us both to sleep.
We have discovered the benefit of gas drops.
He is still eating very well.
We have a 2 week dr. appointment on Thursday. He will get shots and some test run then.
I am recovering very well. I can go way past the 4 hour time limit without my pain pills. And sometimes Tylenol will fix me up as well as the pain meds.
James went back to work on Monday. We miss him terribly, but Mamaw Betty is here. She does all the laundry, ironing, and cleaning. We are going to be so spoiled when she leaves.
I told James today that it would be nice if we were independently wealthy so he could stay home with us every day. ;)
This baby has really increased my prayer life. I have always struggled with praying continually. I can not help but pray for him and with him when he is in my arms, when I am listening to him breathe before I go to sleep, while he is swinging, etc, etch.

Oh the dreaded "Booger Bear!" That's what our family nicknamed the yucky booger sucker! I'm glad you were at home with sweet Zack, instead of giving the re-test today!

I truly believe that you keep rules until 3:00 am and then at 3:00 am all rules are broken and you do what you need to do to get through the night. Everyone does better on sleep.

The bulb is so sad. Now Carley tollerates it because I let her do it to me after I do hers.

Enjoy your sweet baby.
