Small Fry Update

Small Fry is two-and-a-half weeks old, and he’s coming right along!  We think he’ll come home sometime this weekend, and we are ready for him to be home.  

Let me say that again.  

WE ARE READY FOR HIM TO BE HOME!

The crib is ready.  His little onesies and outfits are washed and smell like Dreft!  The swing is swinging.  His bouncy seat is waiting.  The car seat is in the car.  Bottles are washed.  Tiny diapers are anxious to cover a sweet little hiney.  Tater Daddy has been advised to tune out any crankiness I may spew forth.  I am prepared not to sleep until the year 2013 or later.  Poopsie is on alert to come and love on all of us, but mainly Tater Tot.  It’s all good.

Small Fry is gaining weight!  Hooray!  He only weighed 6 pounds, 5 ounces when he was born, and he lost several ounces, so we’ve been working on getting those ounces back.  He’s almost up to seven pounds. He has had some, er, digestive issues.  Oh, y’all.  I’ve heard other mamas talk about the dreaded diaper blowouts, but (except for Tater Tot’s round with Rotavirus) I never had to deal with it.  That’s right.  Tater Tot never had a blowout.

Small Fry, on the other hand, is making up for  what I missed out on the first time I rode the mama-go-round!  Just visiting him in the NICU, I’ve been the recipient of three blowouts.  That’s okay.  I, myself, am a second child.  We’re supposed to shake things up a bit;  keep the folks hopping.  We can’t let them think they have it all figured out.  Where’s the fun in that?

Small Fry is just doing his job.

We’ll be happy when he’s doing it at home, though.

    Yay! You will get a little more rest just because you won’t be back and forthing to the hospital. I know you are so ready to have all of your family in your nest.

    There is some kind of sweetness in being sleepless with a newborn. So excited for you!
