Another day in baby paradise

Good evening or should I say it is five minutes to twelve right now and I should be in bed.  I am very tired although I had an hour nap late this afternoon.  But have been helping out with the baby the past couple of nights so the kids could get some sleep.  So I am short a bunch of hours.  He is growing fast, eating so good and sleeping better.  My little angel. 
We had a good report at the doctor's office yesterday.  Mason has almost gained back his birth weight and they normally don't do that until they are two weeks old when they are being breastfed.  So we were happy to hear that.  He is doing everything else that he is suppose to be doing and did not have to have another Bilirubin test so mama was happy about that!  We went to Antonio's Olive Garden yesterday to take in some paper work that Jenna needed to turn in about her hospital stay, and so that the staff there could see Mason, and  soTammy could too, the boss over the region.  She adored Mason along with everyone else and he was quiet as a mouse again.  He wasn't too thrilled about being undressed etc at the doctor's appointment but was great the rest of the day.  After Antonio was off work, we went to Red Lobster for dinner.  Antonio really wanted to go there and to celebrate Mason's being one week old.  We had a really nice dinner, and then headed home.  Tonight, Antonio's brother, wife and 2 children were here to see Mason.  Mason slept in Marta's arms most of the night, and of course charmed them.  I taught little Belinda, here is the church, here is the steeple, open the door and see all the people, with her hands and she thought that was pretty cool.  Sorry I haven't been on the computer much, it has been nutso.  And tomorrow we are expecting two batches of company, so it shall be busy again.  I will probably sleep for days after I get home.  I plan on coming home on Tuesday.  It makes me cry already to think of leaving Mason.  When I talked to Jenna about this tonight, she said "Mom, this isn't the last time you are going to get to see Mason".  Then she told me how Hanna, who had her little girl this past week, lives in Florida.  Think how they must feel mom to have Hanna that far away.  So in comparison, Milwaukee is only a stones throw away.
Well, I'd better scat!  Elaine

  1. I did not know that babies lost weight after birth that was not put back on until they are breastfed. Interesting.
