One month old!

It is so hard to believe that Bubba is now over one month old! (5 weeks old today.) Time has flown. But it has been so crazy here! Two kids isn't as fun as I thought. LOL. At least not the day to day stuff. Kiwi and I are getting down stairs for breakfast later and later, usually around noon. Before Bubba, I would get her up and dressed and down by 11. Now, we are waking up earlier than we had been , and getting downstairs later. (It really is a handful to take care of a very needy toddler and an infant.) I'm constantly changing one of them or feeding one of them. (I bf Bubba, just as I did Kiwi.)It is so EXHAUSTING!!!!!!!!

At Bubba's 2 week appt (which was done at 2w5d, so he was nearly 3 weeks.) He weighed 9lbs, 1oz! He is such a big boy! We are so not used to that! As Kiwi was and still is VERY petite. Bubba is nearly half her weight already, and he is 1 month old.

We are all doing well, just trying to adjust as best as we can. :)

Introducing my little man!! (WAY overdue, sorry.)

Well, better (way) late than nerver....I hope. :) Sorry, I have been consumed with Baby G, Kiwi, Christmas and such.

First off, I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and are so far enjoying this new year!! We had a great Christmas time. My sister and her fiance (yes, finally engaged) flew out from OR on the 23rd, followed by my Brother and his partner flying here from London on the 29th. It was great to see my entire family.....and for them all to meet their new nephew. :)

I am so happy to announce that on Thursday, Dec. 15th via (planned) c-section, at 2:01 pm, weighing 8 lbs and 7 oz (HUGE compared to Kiwi) and 20 1/2 inches long...... Baby G was born!! He is healthy and doing great! We took him home that next Saturday and we have been all doing well and bonding as a family of 4. My Mom stayed with us for a week (until my sister flew in.) G took 2 days off work, but then had to return the following week. His work shuts down from the 23rd to the 2nd though, so it was great to have him home for those 11 days!

Since he is now here, we have given him a few nicknames...Bubba being the first. So, from this point on, I will refer to him as Bubba, instead of Baby G. :)

It is hard to believe that our little Bubba will be 4 weeks old this Thursday. Time has flown by. I'll try to do better at blogging. I will leave you now with some pictures, taken when he was one week old (if I can figure out how to add them. It's been awhile since I've done it.)
