i miss him,,i really,really do,,it's not like I "see" him less.or I'm not home with him everyday,but I feel like we don't get to bond and interact as much since Noah's been born,,I have to keep up with the feedings,and keep Noah from getting attacked by Kruise,so I constantly feel like I'm holding him,which doesn't leave much room for cuddling and playing with my little man :( I try to make it a point to have "us" time everyday,where we cuddle and watch a cartoon,or play with his toys,and I like to be the one to give him his bath everynight so I get that little extra time in..it's just on days like today,when hubbys home,i nap,and nap,and nap,,,im just sooo tired by the weekend and it makes me sad I dont get to see my kruise -b..i woke up and he's asleep for his nap..boo.,,when he wakes up I think i'm going to take my two little boys on a date with mommy...
today Noah had his 2 week check-up with the pediatrician.. last time we took him to the doctor,they were a little concerned about his ear canal being too small,,well,today was the first day that our actual pedi looked at it,and he discovered that his ear canal isn't even open. It just stops,there is no way he can hear out of it,explaining why he failed his hearing test both times,,he had a third scheduled,but our pedi recommended cancelling it,because he will fail,and referred us to our ear,nose,and throat doc at Vanderbilt (the same one we used for Kruise), so we're waiting for them to get back to us on when his appointment is,,We're hoping that a simple surgery can be done or maybe he'll tell us it will get better as he grows,,that would be awesome,,we're just praying our sweet little guy won't have to be partially deaf,,I know it could be worse,but all you want as a mom is for your kids to be healthy and happy,so when something like this happens,it's like a catastrophe you can't control..just pray for little Noah and that we only get good news!
On the brighter side,,after losing about a pound his first week,he is now more than his birth rate! He is 6 lbs 7 oz (the 5th percentile) he's so tiny! I know he'll catch up with his big bro in no time!
after the rough day we had,I was holding him, talking to him while he was actually awake and alert,and he looked in my eyes and gave me the BIGGEST cheesiest dimpled smile today! It was like he was saying, "don't worry mom!"

we took noah to the pedi today to get his pee-pee checked out,because the plastibell thing looked stuck to me,,well it is,and we have to soak it for a few days until it comes off,,yeahh,,but on to better news,,the little guy has gained 7 oz in 5 days!! woohoo! im so proud :))
we were listening to the radio today,when the dj made a fascinating comment,to us anyways,,Illinois' pick 3 numbers the day after obama was elected were 6-6-six,,he was illinois' senator,,,interesting,,another disturbing discovery,obamas "unsung heroes" were compromised church-goers or non-believers,making up the majority of his voters,,what happened to a country,our country,being based on God and christianity? "one nation under GOD",ring a bell? we are officially under the "power" of a man who states he was raised "muslim with christian influence",,anyone who knows anything about christianity and the islamic culture would know the two religions completely 100% contradict each other,,wtf is up with that?! Im usually not uber-religious or preachy,and try not to read too much into things,but in revelations,it says the antichrist will come as a powerful world leader,he will be attractive,a great speaker,and the masses will follow him,,his reign will last just shy of 4 years(42 months),or close to a presidential term,maybe?...he has also openly mocked the bible (rev 13.6 and watch the video),,maybe i just have too much time on my hands,but u have to admit,its a little scary...even if he's not the antichrist,he still gives me the creeps,and im sooo worried,i will one day have to tell my children how america "used to be"
13:5 A mouth speaking great things and blasphemy was given to him. Authority to make war for forty-two months was given to him. (the AUTHORITY to make war,,like a president can..)
13:6 He opened his mouth for blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his dwelling, those who dwell in heaven. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qn-P3yAaAqI

We had to take Noah to the doctor today,for a weight check,because he is so tiny..well,he had lost almost a pound already,he's down to 5lbs 6oz ..scary,,and i was already concerned,because its been almost 3 days since he's pooped and he went almost 3 hours with a dry diaper,which is NOT good news with a newborn,,He has been nursing great,and seems content afterwards,but something's obviously not right! The doctor told us to supplement tonight,and they want to see him again tomorrow afternoon,,I just nursed him for 30 minutes,he got milk, was gulping,burped and all,and STILL drank 2oz of formula afterwards..I am praying that he poops any time now and has a diaper full of pee! I just want my little angel to be healthy,,He also failed his hearing test for his right ear twice at the hospital,so we have a follow up appt in a couple weeks,,well,the doc figured out why that might be,,his right ear canal is tiny,,alot smaller than his left one,,she couldn't even see in it to check his eardrum and everything,,she said "dont worry YET",,yeah right!,,she wants to check that out again in 3 weeks when he's a little bigger,and maybe she'll be able to see,,she also said it may resolve itself on its own with him getting bigger,,i dont understand how his ear canal opening can all of a sudden grow to the size of his other one,,im worried sick that he'll be partially deaf or something,,ive been worried something's going to be wrong with him since i found out i was preggo,,very uneasy,,i was never that way with kruise,and now that he's premature,and has this too,im kinda freaking out,,ive been on the brink of tears all day,,just pray that he is normal and healthy
the boys had a great halloween! Kruise was a ferocious red dragon,complete with wings,a big tail,and huge floppy feet,,he was sooo cute! Noah wore a little fleece pumpkin hat,which is all i had on short notice,but he was adorable! My mom watched Noah for us so we could take Kruise around the neighborhood and he had a blast! Keith walked him to all the doors and Kruise would knock,and then after they handed him the candy,he would push the door shut,,lol,,I videotaped him doing all his trick or treating and took a million pictures,which,in turn,made me cry,,he looked so grown up walking down the street with his little bucket,,i was a mess!
