plate for my grandma

Here is a plate that I did for my Grandma with Jacob and Cohen's footprints made into angels!

One Month

My baby's one month old today! Where has the time gone? Before I know it he's going to be a year old. I don't even want to think about that! So we had his one month check up this morning. He weighs in at 10 lbs 3 oz! He's a very good eater. We are going to see a cardiologist in about a month for his heart murmur. There is a flap in the heart that is supposed to close during birth, but his hasn't closed. They want to do an echo-cardiogram just to make sure it's tiny. I'm not too concerned as it's very common, but it's still in the back of my mind.
Jacob is a very happy baby. The only time he cries is when he's hungry and I can't get my boob out fast enough! I'm glad that we got his tongue taken care of. Breastfeeding has been much easier for both of us now that he is able to stick his tongue out past his gums.
Soon to come... pictures of the little guy!

mommy duties

So, needless to say I've been busy. I'm going to be posting pictures and such soon, but I need to get around to uploading them and such and DH has to edit them first. Anyway, we have Jacob's one month check up Monday so I will post after that!

The past 2 weeks

Wow, time has flown! My little boy is getting so big already. We've had some issues breastfeeding that are caused by him being tongue tied, so we have an appointment this Thursday with an oral surgeon. The thing is that the string below his tongue has a hole in it, and the front piece is what is causing him not to be able to stick his tongue out enough, but I'm hoping that I'll be able to get it to break just by massaging it, but we still have the appointment scheduled just in case. His tongue issue has caused me to have mastitis, which is an infection in my breast caused by clogged milk ducts. It's not fun, in fact very painful at the beginning of the feeding. I'm on antibiotics though so hopefully it will feel better soon.
I had a lactation consultant come out 2 this week to help me with our feeding issues. On Tuesday he weighed 8 lbs 12 ounces, and Thursday when she came back he weighed 9 lbs 1 ounce!!!
K, my son calls to be fed, I must run.
