Cody's 2 Month Checkup

Yesterday was Cody's 2 month Dr visit. He weighs 11.8 and is 22 inches long. His pedi was impressed that when laying on his belly that he can lift up his head and upper body and look around. She was also surprised that he flipped himself over when he was done with that. Pedi says he is doing things that babies usually start doing at 4 months old. So, he is a little ahead of schedule. All is good healthwise with my sweet little bug. He is getting bigger and bigger and we sure do love him. Today was my first day back to work. It is really hard being away from him though..... Will write more later.

2 Months

Has it really been 2 months?? I still cannot believe that my perfect little bug has been here that long. After waiting years and years for him I have been blessed to be able to hug and kiss him for 2 full months. *WOW* Here are some pictures from tonight. They are not all that great as Cody had just woken up (we were in town visiting family) He has been rolling from belly to back since he was 3 weeks old and laughs out loud and smiles often. However, to get a picture of him laughing or smiling is really hard because my camera takes a minute to focus and get the picture. Will update more later :O) Also, be sure to visit and welcome Elijah, he was born yesterday 8/25/09 and is blessed with Down Syndrome. He was prenatally diagnosed so, no surprise at birth.

Pictures Taken Tonight

Bug was hanging out with mom tonight and while yawning he stuck out his tongue and I snapped a picture. He looks so funny :O) Then while I was doing laundry, bug was hanging out with dad and this is what I found when I walked into the living room, my 2 favorite men snoozing on the couch. They look so comfortable together... Too bad I had to wake Kevin up 20 minutes later to finish taking care of the dogs while I finished cooking dinner (a very late dinner at 10pm when done)

6 Weeks as of 8/7/09

Bug turned 6 weeks old on Friday. Hard to believe, but true. My sweet little man is growing up on his mama.... He weighs over 10 pounds now and when holding him for long periods of time you definitely feel it, lol. I have not been feeling 100% lately which is why I haven't posted in a bit. Bug is doing absolutely fantastic and now has little "rolls" on his legs and arms :O) Will post more later

Lots of stuff

My handsome little bug giving me his crooked smile

Pursing his lips :O)

Me, a few days before my sweet bug was born

Me, the day I came home from the hospital with my sweet little bug

Me today 5 weeks and 1 day after giving birth to my sweet little bug

I love my little bug Cody more than anything. It is a love that I have had for him since I first learned I was pregnant. After many, many years we were finally blessed with this perfect little boy. I was a really high risk pregnancy and I am sure that my ob/gyn was thinking "whew, glad that is over" when Cody was born,lol. We would love to be blessed with another baby if that is our Heavenly Father's wish. I love to watch Cody day in and day out, he makes some of the funniest facial expressions. I especially love his big cheesy grin and audible laugh, that is about everyone's favorite, I think. I sometimes wonder what he is thinking about? He laughs, smiles and sometimes frowns in his sleep. We feel so very blessed to be his parents. My mom says that he is a miracle that she never thought would happen. We didn't either... I have to say that getting used to motherhood takes some time. I have learned so much in so little time. Breast feeding is great and natural and we are doing it, but since Cody will not feed at the breast anymore I have a date with a breast pump every 3 hours or so. However, since breast milk is the healthiest for him, we will continue. I know not many of you know, but I have chronic pain and have for quite a while. My body makes tons of scar tissue when I have surgery. I had 3 surgeries last year and my body went crazy making scar tissue... the scar tissue is connected everywhere and causes me lots of pain. I also have scar tissue that formed at my heparin injection sites.. yeah, that bad. My Dr has consulted with 3 different surgeons about removing the scar tissue, but all 3 do not recommend doing it because my body could build even more. So, that is where we are. Some days are better pain wise than others. On my really bad pain days I just want to sleep and I am really learning how to sleep when my little bug sleeps. So, if I do not answer your emails for quite a while it is because I am trying to sleep when bug does. The pictures above are 2 of my favorite of bug and then just pics of me during, after and now.
