First Week



Boy oh Boy has this been one of the best weeks in our lives. Baby Jase is the sweetest thing to happen to us. We have had many visitors and today is the first day that it's just the three of us. This morning Jason had to go to school to take a test so it was just me and baby this morning. Jase is eating about every two to three hours and I am just getting used to waking up about three times a night until it's finally morning. It's not so bad really, just something new. My body is feeling better and my stitches are healing nicely and don't hurt so much anymore. I have minor aches and pains in my abdomen that are slowly becoming less and less. My stomach is shrinking up and it's amazing that he was once in there!! My parents went home Sunday, Jason's parents came Saturday morning and left Tuesday evening and we also had a visit from Jason's brother, Tim, and his family on Sunday. It was so nice that everyone could come and see us. We had our first doctor's appointment Saturday morning since I am breast-feeding they wanted to see the baby within 48 hours to make sure he wasn't losing too much weight. Well he had not lost any weight since we left hospital so that is awesome. His next appointment is Tuesday 19th. Hopefully this next appointment will go a little more smooth. His first appointment was quite a comedy! First they tell us the wrong time so we show up an hour early, forget the diaper bag so we go to Target to get diapers and wipes and I also needed to get some newborn plain white onesies for his undershirts. So then we go back to the doctor and we have to change his diaper because he had pooped in it. So as we are changing the diaper he urinates all over the place and of course the whole time he is screaming because it is like antartica inside the doctor's office! We just busted out laughing because it was just so perfect to happen to us the "New Parents!!" It was awesome. He did so good when being examined and they said his coloring was good and he was a "keeper."

Hey Carmen, I can't help but laugh! I also forgot the diaper bag when I took Mason to his first Dr. appointment : ) I'm glad to hear that you were able to laugh. I have to admit I cried right along with him. We are so glad to hear that everyone is doing so well. I CAN'T wait to see this little prince! He really is cute! I know I don't have to convince you of that though : ) See you soon. Love, Ashley

I still can't believe that you had a baby and you're a mom. Just one week until I get to meet lj (little jason). In the photo his hands are so big. He must take after his mom, little wrist big fist.

I kind of like "LJ", has a good sound to it like "MJ" does. I'll call him "Paco" We shall wait to see what name sticks.... :-) MJ's observations regarding his large hands is right on the mark. It's must all be in the genes, his mom and dad both have large hands, not to mention large feet!
