Crashing at grandma's...

March 22nd, 2011

Well, here I am blogging again but I still don't have any super exciting news. Danny, Asher and I are currently crashing at my parent's house because Danny is venturing into the farming business with my family and we don't have a place of our own back here yet. I'm not sure who will be sick of who first...us of my parents or my parents of us. The first few nights Asher was a little uneasy being away from home but he's settled in pretty well. We've quickly learned that no matter where we are, Asher is the boss. He not only keeps his parents on their toes, but his grandparents too! Not to mention all of his belongings have taken over grandma and grandpa's house.

We've been working on figuring out what has been causing his skin problems and just recently, it's finally started to clear up. However, we're not sure what exactly is helping. Is it the cream we are putting on some of the spots? Is it the soy milk that he is now drinking? Or maybe it was a yeast infection and is now clearing up because we have stopped giving him apple juice (which we were using to help him poo).....not sure, but whatever it is, I'm thankful that something is helping!

Well, posted below are a few pictures I took of Asher a few weeks ago. I have a million but I'm obviously not very good at updating my blog so this is what ya get. Maybe next time I write, I will have a picture of a first toothie to post!!!

A strange little something..

March 8th, 2011

Today I have a heavy heart for a few reasons I'd rather not actually discuss. It's hard to feel sad about things when I know I am so blessed and have so much to be happy about. I can say wholeheartedly that I am the happiest I've ever been and I have a billion things to be thankful for! But even in our best times, there are things that can bring you down a notch. I don't know what it is about today. Maybe there was something that triggered these feelings but they haven't been here before. I'm not sure how to face them or fix them and I'm a little shocked by my feelings. All I can say is that I feel like there is someone missing that should be in my life in some way and isn't and it hurts me a little. I guess for now I will just send my best wishes and pray for a happy life to a person who I don't even know but has in some strange way, touched my heart.

Soooo Big!

March 6th, 2011

Remember that little tiny baby who was under 5 lbs when he was born? I'm having trouble because at almost 4 months old, he weighs over 13 lbs! Wow is my little pumpkin growing up fast. I'm amazed at how fast we reach a size of clothing and then have to put them away and move on to the next size. Asher is already wearing his 6 month stuff and it fits perfectly. He's got a long back and torso just like his dad so he should be a fun one to find clothes that fit!

Besides growing like a weed, we've been busy the past 2 months. We've been struggling with a skin irritation which the doctor thinks is craddle cap but I think (KNOW) it's eczema. He's got it on his head, face, elbows, shoulders, back, chest, and legs....sounds like fun doesn't it? It's so frustrating and right now we are treating it with some hydrocortisone cream. At first I was against using anything like that, but it seems to be helping so hopefully it goes away and stays away. We also came down with a cold this week. His first sickness since being home from the NICU and me being the worry wort that I am, kinda freaked out. I just hate seeing my baby not feeling well so it's been hard on me. He's eating fine and sleeping pretty well so I don't think it's anything big...but it's still scary. Praying that he heals up quickly and we're back to the happy, sleeping baby we were before he got sick.

Speaking of happy, SLEEPING baby....before Asher got sick, he was sleeping through the night! For 6 nights in a row he would sleep 8-9 hours straight. I must say that mommy was really enjoying that. Now if he will only revert back to that schedule once this sickness hits the road!

Anyway, little man is waking up from his nap (and so is his dad) so I better run. Hopefully next time I update I will have some more exciting news! :)
