Jimmy Michael

Well, we've got a baby! He's 4 months old now and our life has been turned upside down since he decided to come three weeks early via c-section.


My blood pressure was dangerously high so they admitted us and got me started on drugs to help me deliver, but then his heart rate starting dropping to they whisked us away to get him out.


Our little turkey came June 13th 2013 at 12:13pm weighing in at 5lbs 5oz, 19 in. long. He came out with the umbilical cord wrapped around his neck, but other than that, he was perfectly healthy.




You can see how tiny he is compared to Steven's hands! Such a little thing. We didn't have any preemie clothes so he had to drown in newborn clothes for a while.


His favorite place on Daddy's chest :)


A few days old. Not quite fitting into his skin.


Drowning again in his clothes.





He always holds the bottle "position" for a bit after we've taken out the bottle.








This swing is the only thing (other than Steven) that would save my sanity. I could sometimes get him to sleep in it (day or night) other than that, this kid DID NOT SLEEP. Never more than an hour at a time and no more than 8 hours in a 24 hour period. FOR A NEWBORN! Let's just say those first two months of no sleep were the hardest of our lives. This kid is a crier and will not be put down under any circumstances. He has to be held or it's screaming bloody murder all day long.








After we added a head support, it was still too roomy in his car seat. He was such a little guy!


After a month and a few days he started to chunk up a bit and was wearing newborn clothes at last.



 



 It's still SO difficult to get anything done or go anywhere because he's still our little inconsolable screamer who has to be held 24/7. Thankfully he has started sleeping 8 hours through the night so we have our sanity back.

We sure love our little drool monster and wouldn't trade him for the world. Some day soon I'll get back to blogging, but not until this little man gives me some time on a regular basis :)

I love all the pictures Rebecca!! He is SOOOOOOOO adorable!!! Babies are so much fun but I agree, the lack of sleep is enough to make anyone go mad. We are expecting another one in April and I hope and pray that he or she is a good sleeper!
