Jace had his 2 week appointment yesterday and everything is looking great! His stats:
weight: 8 lbs. 4 oz. (40%)
height: 21 and 1/4 (75%)
head: 14 and something (40%)
So, pretty much like Reid – average head and weight and a little above average in length/heighth. Jace is still a pretty easy baby – we are just crossing our fingers that this stays this way!!! Reid was, um, high maintenance, as an infant so we felt like we were due an easy, calm baby! He pretty much eats every 2-3 hours and at night he eats every 3 hours but will eat and then go right back to sleep. I don’t feel quite as zombie-ish as I did with Reid, but I am already ready for a good solid night’s sleep!!!! So, if you’ve called me in the last week or so and I haven’t gotten back to you, I will! The best time to return calls is during Reid’s nap and at that time of day, I’m so freakin’ exhausted that all I do is sit in our chair and do one of the following: read, sleep, watch TV. (Today I decided to update the blog). But, thanks for the calls, texts, messages – I will get back with you!
Also, huge news on the flies/bees home front - Reid is now going outside! If you read my post below, then you know that he was going through this extreme fear of flies and bees that was preventing him from even wanting to step foot outside! If he sees one, he still has a minor freak-out, but it is SO much better than a week ago.
My mom leaves tomorrow, and then I’ll be on my own!! I have to admit, I’m really nervous about how it’s all going to work – Jace seems to want to eat at the same time that Reid needs something – whether it’s waking up in the morning, lunch, nap, etc. so I need to figure out how to balance both boys’ needs!
Thank you so much for the prayers for my c-section recovery – I had my 2 week appointment with the doctor and she thinks the hematoma is gone! So, now I’m just recovering from a regular c/s (I saw this abbreviation written on one of my paperwork forms in the hospital and so now that’s how I like to write “c-section”) :) At 6 weeks I should be completely healed and will have clearance on everything! I’m really looking forward to getting back into working out. I got the P90x set for my birthday so I’m planning on doing that – I’ll let you know what I think!
Reid is outside in his favorite outfit – his birthday suit!
Lilly is so interested in Jace!
Reid just loves his baby brother and now loves to hold him!
