Thank you for your ideas about getting help with the Pregestamil. We're going to look into both avenues. I was surprised today when I was in Babies R Us that they didn't carry it there. Huh...
This week Colby has a follow up with the neurosurgeon. We've been feeling his soft spots on his head and they continue to feel soft and "empty". When his hydrocephalus was progressing, the soft spots felt firm and full. Almost like a blister would. I'm not sure what the doctor is going to do on Wednesday, I'm assuming an ultrasound to check if there's been any change over the past week.
Colby's room is coming together. We've got the Crib and changing table. And today I ordered his dresser. That should arrive at Baby's R Us in a week or two.
Some of you have asked how Hamilton is doing. Well....he's pretty bummed. He's been moping around and when he lies down, he's been letting out a deep groan as he lowers his body. So we've been doing what we can to give him some more attention today and he's loving it!
My week coming up is relatively slow work-wise given that New Years falls on Tuesday. That's a good thing as it's been quite an adjustment for Tracey and I. I think between the lack of sleep and change of sleep routine, plus we went from 5 months in the hospital, to then sleeping in the hospital and trying to square away a little bit of Xmas shopping, to having him home. One after the other. So we think it might take a couple days....maybe a week to get settled in.
I know there are a good number of you who read this blog who recently had children. Others who had kids a little longer ago. How long did it take you to "adapt"?
