Last NIght

I'm going to try my Whubba Nub we call him Bubba
Dori can't even figure out what is wrong!!! She hates it when he cries. She stayed up with us!!!
I love my Bubba. In the car seat!!!
Finally sweet boy is asleep!!!

Last night was eventful. So far Drew goes to bed around 9 after his bath and then gets up at midnight for a bottle and falls asleep immediately and then wakes up around 8:30 in the morning. WELL... not last night... he decided he was hungry again at around 9.. so we fed him a small bottle (we had just fed him at 8:15ish). Then he got cranky, so my dad took him and walked around with him... wouldn't burp, wouldn't take the paci, checked diaper... nothing... tried swing .. nOPE... so finally after about an hour of grumpiness we decided to head home. As soon as we put him in the car seat he calmed down. I made Ken drive around the neighborhood several times to make sure he was asleep. We got home around 10:30 and he slept until 11:30 time for bottle. Fed him but then he got cranky again. We tried to burp him, walked around with him, Ken and I took turns loving on him and carrying him. It was just like earlier... nothing was going to make him happy. Finally around 2 in the morning I tried a new bottle and PRESTO HAPPY BABY!!!! He fell asleep drinking it and went right down for the rest of the night... yeah right... In about 30 minutes he was fussy again so I just took him out of his bassinet and held him. He liked that and so he slept like that until about 8 this morning. He woke up with a dirty diaper and I changed him and back to sleep he went. POOR little guy he is tuckered out from last night and so am I. He and Ken are still asleep. I am getting stuff done around the house and updating this and that. Needless to say I think Ken and I did pretty good last night and I am going to let my boys sleep in as long as they want!!! LOVE TO ALL!!!

JUST an update... his cold is getting better!!!! He only gets a runny nose in the morning right after waking up and isn't coughing as much either. We go back to the Dr. Wednesday for a follow up and I think 1st month check up!!

We are attempting to settle down. This baby thing is new to us and we are catching on fast. Drew is fighting a cold. We took him to the Dr. Monday, after we got home because he was very congested... BUT ... I didn't really like that Dr. SOOOOO ~ we went to our new Dr. today. WE LOVE HER!!! They ran some test and said that he just has a little cold and to just keep an eye on him. He is now 9 pounds 4 ounces and is still at 21 inches long. He eats when he wants to eat.. AND... when he is done he IS DONE!!! He shuts his mouth tight and that's it. He doesn't like to burp and loves to snuggle. I have been so worried OK paranoid at night that I let him sleep on me BUT the Dr. said NO so tonight he will sleep in his bassinet next to our bed. OR at least we will attempt it. :) The Dr. said to give it a few more days, the cold will last for about 10 days, we can already tell he is feeling better. He goes back to the Dr. on Wednesday for a check up and shots. OUCH!!! He doesn't like to be hot.. hey we have that in common, and he loves our dog, Dori. Dori has to check on him every time he whimpers. It is really cute. Most of the time I change him on our bed and there Dori is laying right next to him. We call her our baby nurse. OK don't forget to leave comments. LOVE TO ALL!!!

Drew was born on September 8th at 7:27 p.m. He was 8 pounds 12 oz. and 21 inches long. We were not there but received a phone call about 10 minutes after he arrived. We are now waiting for DNA results, which might take longer because of hurricane IKE. Before Ike, we were told we would know everything by Wednesday. We are praying like crazy that we get him next week. Right now he is in North Houston with a lady from our agency.

Jenna, emailed me and asked if I wanted pictures and I said YES!!!! I decided to post them on here because I want everyone to see what we are PRAYING for. He is the cutest thing!!! Please keep us in your prayers and please include Jenna in them too. What a selfless and courageous act she has done!!! She will FOREVER be a part of our heart.

I will update as soon as we find out anything. The other prospective dad from Houston has not filled out any papers stating yes or no. When he was served with papers he was given a paper of intent (to keep the baby) and a termination paper (terminate his rights) he didn’t fill out either and the deadline was weeks ago. So as of right now we are getting Drew it is just a matter of next week or a few more weeks. We are praying for next week but realize it is out of our hands… we are not in control.

We do thank EVERYONE for their words of encouragement and prayers. We feel the love and it helps us get through the day!!!

ONE LAST THING… Happy Birthday to my Prince Charming!!! Today is his 33rd and I love him so much. He is the peanut butter to my jelly, the peas to my carrots, he is my best friend!!! Happy Birthday Honey… I LOVE YOU!!!
