I absolutely love this picture
Not a very good one of Adam, he wouldn't stop kicking

Right after I took this Rusty handed him to me since he was fussy, happens every time.

I love it when he sleeps like this.
He came out with this mullet

I've lost 11 more pounds! Yay! So thats 32 that I've lost so far and now I have 23 more to go! Now all this extra skin and stretch marks need to go away too!
Adam is still sleeping really good at night. Usually he gets up around 3 and then again at 6 and that's when he goes to bed between 9 and 10. Hopefully soon he'll be on a set schedule and go to bed at 7 or 8 and still not get up until 3 to eat. And even though I've been getting good sleep, I still take a nap when he does ha ha. I love my sleep!

Adam had his two week check up on Wednesday and now weighs 10 pounds. When I put him on the scale the nurse told me to take his diaper off for a second and then asked to put it back on. Well it was a little dirty so I went to grab and new one and he peed and pooped all over. The nurse acted like it was my fault. She said in a very negative tone, "I knew that was gonna happen." It really bugged me. Well then another nurse came in to take the state pku test and she said "what a big baby!" Adam was not happy during the test. He was really hungry and I did feed him a little while before we left but we also had to wait a while before going in so he screamed the whole time she was taking his blood. But then as soon as I fed him he was fine.
Rusty has been sick since Wednesday. He went to the Dr and they told him it wasn't strep or the flu but they gave him flu medicine anyways and it was 57 dollars! I was so mad but there wasnt anything I could do about it. Today he thought he might have pneumonia so he went to the Dr again and of course it wasn't just like I told him but the Dr said that if he didn't feel any better by next Wednesday to call him. He has a really bad nasty hacking cough. It's way gross. Then yesterday on my way home from camping with my mom, my whole body got really achy and I had really bad back pain. I was bawling when I got home I hurt so bad. I had a temperature and cold chills. It was pretty bad so I had Rusty and my brother Blake give me a blessing and so now today I just have a little headache. I really hope Adam doesn't get sick. I don't think he will. And even though Rusty was sick and felt like crap, he got up last night to feed and change Adam everytime. One of the times he got up he fed Adam formula while I pumped so that on the next feeding he would have breast milk. So I got much needed sleep last night. I am very greatful to Rusty for doing that. I love him so much. I think part of the reason I was so tired and achy was the horrible bed I slept on in my moms trailer and it was also freezing outside since it was really rainy all day and the heater in the trailer was broken. Plus Adam kept me up half the night. He did not want to go back to sleep when he woke up at 2:30 to eat. Hopefully next month on the next camping trip things will be better. And hopefully Rusty doesn't get sick again for a long time cuz it's pretty bad when he is sick even if it is a rare occasion that he does get sick.

Yesterday Adam slept pretty much all day so I was afraid he wouldn't sleep very much last night. I was very wrong. He finished eating at about 8 and we put him to bed at 9 so that's when we went to bed as well. I woke up to him coughing and I looked up at the clock and it said 2:30! I was in shock. I couldn't beleive he slept that long without waking up. I couldn't beleive I hadn't woken up either because I was soaking wet. I had leaked really bad and didn't even feel it until I got up. It was really bad. I fed him and he ate for about 30 minutes which is the longest he has ever eaten. Then he went right back to sleep until about 6:30. So I probably got about 8 hours of sleep and I still feel tired. But I was getting atleast 10 hours a night when I was still pregnant so I'm still not quite used to it. But on average I've been getting 6-7 hours a night so not to bad for having a newborn.

21 down 35 more to go

On Saturday night, I decided to weigh myself. I wasn't going to at all until my 6 week check up but I started to get really curious. At the end of my pregnancy I had gained a total of 55 pounds so I weighed 204. Yikes! Well I stepped on the scale and it said 183! I was really shocked and amazed that I lost 21 pounds in a week. It really motivated me to try and eat better to get back down to my original 148. Hopefully I can do it!

Adam has had lots of green goopy stuff coming out of his eyes I think since the day he was born. I didn't really notice until like 5 day ago. I'm not even really sure. I called the Dr and they told me it could either be a clogged tear duct or an eye infection. They told me that 4 to 5 times a day I need to take my finger and start at the bottom of his nose and push up to the corner of his eye 2 to 3 times and to do this with both eyes. They said if it still hadn't gone away by Wednesday to give them a call back. They also said that signs of an infection include high fever and the whites of his eyes will be red. He hasn't had a fever and his eyes are still a little yellow from the jaundice. Hopefully it's not or doesn't turn into an infection. Other than that he is such a good baby. I have been getting about 6 to 7 hours of sleep a night. He wakes up every 2 to 3 hours to eat and have a diaper change and then goes right back to sleep. Every once in a while he has been wide awake so then when I put his down he gets mad. At that point I usually put him in the swing or just sit in the rocking chair with him for a while. I really love being a mom! I never could have imagined what an amazing feeling it is to be a mom.
