Owen 1 month

Owen is 9lbs and 22 inches!!
-hates his carseat and would rather die than be in it.
- wants to be held constantly. Ktan has saved my life.
-wears some 0-3 and some newborn clothes and newborn diapers... Something Parker never did!!
-sleeps 4 to 5 hours at time at night
-breastfeeding every 2.5 or 3hours
-sleeps in a bassinet in our room
-loooves soothie pacifiers

It has been a really rough month. He had so many doctor appointments at first due to a rare skin disorder (he's fine now) and not gaining enough weight (fine now) and some concern about his vision (fine for now).... So it was exhausting and scary but mainly exhausting.

Parker is adjusting well. I miss him. I used to spend 24/7 with him. Jon has kind of taken over Parker duty. Parker seems fine with it though.

I am really struggling with the two kid thing, but I'm slowly getting better at juggling everything. We will get there!

One week to go!

Parker and I had an awesome "date" today. We took advantage of a summer kids movie promotion- our tickets, 2 icees, and 2 popcorns were only $5! Afterwards, we went out and got lunch together. We went with some friends so it was even more fun! I am glad that we got a little last hurrah. I know things are going to be much more difficult in the weeks and months to come.

I can't believe that in one week we will have another baby. I am so excited and nervous. Parker and I have a pretty good groove and i will miss that. As he gets older though, I know he really needs a sibling. He is such a caring and social little guy and some kids just are just designed to need other kids. From the time he was about 8 months, I could tell that Parker needed interaction with other kids the way most people need oxygen. He is forever trying to get the dog to do puzzles and games with him. He knows that the baby won't be able to do stuff for a while, but I think he's ok with that. He loves babies and is always seeking them out and playing peekaboo with them!

I am really excited to have a new little guy to snuggle and get to hold. I actually LOVE the newborn/baby phase (its 1-2 that I don't like) so I am getting really, really excited. Nervous, too, because I am such a worry wart. I don't know what I think will happen, but this whole pregnancy has been full of me fearing the worst. I can't wait until the baby is out and I can lay eyes on him and make sure he is breathing.

This has been a rough pregnancy and I am sorry I have complained my way through it. I know better but I have been in so much pain that I didn't really think outside myself. I would have probably unfriended myself 5 years ago.

Wow this has turned into a rambling post. I guess I am getting sentimental with the end being so close!!

Parker says he has a baby in his tummy too. It's a girl named Pluto. Now after every meal he says" now Pluto is eating the food in my tummy!" Hahaha
