Josh Stays at Grandma's

Yesterday I wrote this nice post about my anniversary supper and how I made clams (for the first time) for my husband. I got it all written out and then blogger went down and wouldn't publish, so you don't get to hear about my nice clam supper. It was rather boring anyways.

Today I went back to work for the first day and left Josh with his Grandma. It went pretty well at work and everyone seemed glad to see me, but by the end of the day my back ached so bad from standing up all day and I was ready to go home and find my baby. Turns out, he didn't miss me at all and was a very good boy. Except for pooping his pants and soiling his clothes. We decided that maybe Josh has grown out of the size one diapers because he keeps leaking through. I suppose that it is very possible because, as of yesterday, he is 12 lbs and 2.5 oz. And he's only five weeks old! He's been growing so fast. Grandma got to feed him his very first bottle today. She said he did very well and didn't fuss about it. What a good boy I have! Yesterday morning I took him to the doctor because his belly button cord hasn't fallen off yet. She said it is rare for them to hang on so long, but it didn't seem to be causing any problems other than being an annoyance. She put some medicine on it to help the cord shrink. I'm hoping that it will fall off soon, so I can give Josh his first bath. Up until now he has only had sponge baths, but at least that is something! I can already see the difference the medicine has made, so it won't be long now until Josh can be my little fish. Isn't he so cute?

I'm assuming you pumped the milk for the bottle. He looks like he has a little tear in his eye, he must've been really hungry. I'm sure your mom had a great time with him!

Well now that little man is growing like a weed! Bet grandma enjoyed him bunches!

I thought that looked like a tear too, but he really didn't cry long or hard, just enough to say, "hey, I'm hungry! Where's my mom?" He had to wait for the milk to warm up. When the milk was ready he grabbed hold of my fingers and enjoyed his bottle.

Bethany, by the way, I did read your blog about you making clams for your anniversary. I thought I was losing my mind when I visited your blog the next time and it was gone. Maybe it was on for a bit and then disappeared??? Spooky...

That is wierd!

Maybe Heather was really seeing your Facebook. Dec. 3- "Bethany is celebrating her second anniversary by making a heap of clams for her husband. He better like them and be appreciative."

That could have been it, Martha! I am losing my mind just a bit. I am hoping it comes back after the wedding.
