Baby Ramblings

Tummy time on the Boppy
I love that little mouth

Henry stayed with his Daddy for a bit today while I went for a follow up appt at the doctor and to do some shopping. Henry had to sit through a conference call with his Daddy and decided to poo poo his diaper while Daddy was on the call. I would have loved to been a fly on the wall to see how Randall changed it and stayed on the phone without interruption. Henry hates to have a dirty diaper and also hates to have it changed...and usually screams the best he can through the whole event. Randall is a good daddy, so I am sure he did fine.

Anyway, It was the first time in 23 days that I had driven or been inside anywhere besides my own home, Randall's truck, the doctor's office or the hospital. Much needed time out today, but I must say this little mama is tired from the outing. I am still recouping from birthing this sweet thing you see posted above this text. The doctor weighed me today and I have already lost 25 pounds. I have about 25 more to loose for my own sake though. My blood pressure is still acting silly so we are watching it and I am a bit anemic from the blood loss at the hospital. Henry's mama is coming around...it is just slow going. The nurses all crowded around my digital camera today to look at pictures of him since I refused to bring him out in public this early. They made me promise to bring him in at my next appt in early Jan...I agreed.

This week Daddy has to work more than he did last week. He has fired some people and is hiring some new people. It is quite tedious for him but we are glad he works from home and can be in the house working instead off somewhere else. Nana and her sister are coming tomorrow to see him for a few hours while I go back out to finish my Christmas errands. We hope to meet his 4 sweet cousins next week and see Juju again. Marmie is coming for Christmas week and called a bit earlier to say she bought a nice red fleece robe to match Henry's Christmas pajamas. We got a beautiful, massive white poinsettia with baby blue accents from our Byhalia neighbors today. I sure miss them. Would you know none of our neighbors here in J'Town have been over since Henry arrived. I sent Randall over to their mailboxes with homemade bread, our annual card/letter and coffee the day before I had Henry. Funny how that works. Makes us laugh more than anything. Well, my good buddy Melissa is bringing us dinner in a bit, I best go get Henry ready for all her kisses!

That baby is so cute! Your energy will come back. It takes awhile for all of the swelling to go down too. You think it would be immediate, but it isn't. Your blood pressure will come down. Mine eventually did.
