I came home early today. I'm a tired mama. I went shopping this morning to buy some things we need to bring Joshua home with (like some newborn sleepers and onsies and bottles, and a sling). When he comes home I need to give him two bottles a day with some formula added to my breast milk to help him keep gaining. Speaking of gaining ... he's 6 pounds today. And you can see it! Such cute little cheeks! This afternoon while I was getting him ready to breast feed - changing his diaper and giving him some vitamins he choked and had an episode where he wasn't breathing well and was blue and needed a little oxygen to get his saturations up. It was a moment where I really had to trust the nurses and God with Joshua because there was nothing I could do. After his little episode, he was really tired and wasn't able to bf so I gave him a bottle instead and put him in his "funny bed" as Joel calls it to rest. I think I'm going to go have a nap ...
Matt and I are planning a wee date tonight because this will be our last opportunity before Josh comes home! Yippee! We are also getting a new vehicle so I'm sad to say I will be driving a "grocery getter" as Matt calls it (a new to us beautiful Nissan Quest minivan) and giving up my Pathfinder (too small for hauling around two boys, a dog and all the gear that comes with two boys!) We get the van on Monday!
