Busy Life...passing me by...

PRECIOUS!!! Daddy and Conrey under 1 week old.

Life is just passing by so fast! Things have been a bit hectic. Holly and all, thanks for the concern. We had a rough night Saturday night, so we didn't make it to church. Conrey has had thrush (yeast infection of the mouth). He is already quite the puker and this has made him really tooty and burpy, on top of that. It hasn't been real fun.

We have been soooo blessed by the couples in our church group that have been bringing us meals. After having Conrey, I felt badly about accepting the meals because I was feeling so well. I have been truly thankful that we accepted them, as I've been so tired and Conrey has been very needy (hence my lack of postings). He's wanting to be held a lot and doesn't sleep very soundly most of the time. We have had lots of yummy food and are so thankful for good friends!

Anyway, I took Conrey to the dr yesterday and the little mister weighed in at 11 lbs 5 oz. WOW! Apparently, though we change clothes mulptiple times each day from the puking, he's still getting adequate nutrition. His thrush is better, but still bothersome. He HATES his medicine. Imagine this: You're an infant (less than 3 weeks) and you've only had breastmilk. You have to get medicine for your itchy, ouchy mouth. Suddenly, you taste something foreign. What is it? Why, it's CHERRY MINT, of course! WHAT? Why on earth would they give a tiny baby CHERRY MINT?!?

He is getting better, but still is not himself. He is getting really chubby, though. Sorry, but I don't have any recent pics uploaded as of yet, so I'll have to get some. The one at the top is one that my friend, Bek, took when she was here the weekend after he was born. I thought it was pretty fantastic and pretty precious.

Cassie has been saying funny things to him lately. Yesterday, he was focusing on her as she was talking to him. She said, "What do you think, buddy? What do you think?" Today, when I was burping him and finally got a burp, she said, "Atta boy, buddy!" She's enjoying him and is getting used to having him around and being such a great helper! One downside to things is that she's still afraid of going potty. I'm not really sure what to do to get her over her fear. I even bought Dora panties as incentive, as she has been asking for them. Any suggestions?

My suggestion is to focus on your new baby and worry about potty training when you get settled and into a routine. No hurry! Sheesh...trying to do everything at once!

I say you punch Conrey every time she refuses to go potty. Then say "If you don't go potty, it makes your buddy cry!"

If that doesn't work, leave her with mom and dad for a few weeks and make THEM train her.

Sounds like you have your hands full. Personally I agree with B in that you should take it one thing at a time. I'm sure it would be nice to only have one in diapers though! Glad you're starting to blog again, love the photos!!!
