We miss and love you Dad

Friday was 2 years since my dad has been gone. He died on Mark's 30th birthday. It made for an awful birthday that year but actually helps take our mind off of it these last 2 birthdays. We had a good day. We went to the cementary and gave Nathan his valentines and then had Gina and her family over for dinner. We had a blast and the kids play really well together. I know my dad and Nathan are in a better place and very happy together. We miss them so much and think of them all the time

Happy Birthday Mark

Aaden 2 month appt.

Aaden went to the Dr's thurs and weighs 9lbs 3 oz. Wow i can't believe how much he has grown. He has colic, some nights/days are worse than others. The dr gave him some meds for his reflux and told us to give him 2 oz of apple juice a day to help with his bowel movements. His theory is if we eliminate other problems then maybe the colic won't seem as bad. He LOVES the apple juice. He licks his lips forever after he is done. He seems to not want to go back to bed once he is up anytime after 4 unles he is in his bouncy seat. The dr said its fine it probably makes his belly feel better. They also told us rsv is crazy this year and even though he is getting shots against it we need to keep him in more. We were thinking of blessing him in march but it looks like we will have to wait.

Aaden Update

I have decided to no longer do the care page on Aaden. Now that he is home and doing good i decided to just do the blog. He is growing like crazy. He is out of newborn diapers and finally in size 1. He is still in newborn pants. He is top heavy and has short little legs! He actually slept thru the night last night, i'm sure its a one time thing. :) His 2 month appt is thurs. I can't wait to find out his weight!

Sara has been on this kick lately that she is a super hero or a REAL super hero as she says. Her name is Speedy Stronghold. I called her in my room tonight and handed her her clean underwear she said should i put them away and i said to her no stick them up your butt. As she was walking to her room i heard her mutter Mommy sure has alot of nerve talking to a real super hero that way! :)

Aaden update

Aaden went to the dr on wed. He weighs 7lbs 14oz and the dr said he's doing great. He was circumsized also. They don't do it on preemies in the NICU. Dr. Harris expalined that because he was technically still supposed to be in the womb his pain tolerance should be high. Mark went in with him. They gave him a little shot to numb the area and he never cried once during it. The nurse gave him some cherry syrup on his binky and he sucked away. He's doing really good with it and doesn't appear to have any problems with it!
