We are a bunch of sickos here - literally. Aaron and I both have a stomach bug and have been laid up and miserable all day. Aaron is worse off than I am, but it is still no fun. Especially since I can't take anything due to the breastfeeding. Fortunately Cheryl still feels good so we have one fully functional adult around!

Not much else new here. Grant lost a little bit of weight since we left the hospital so we'll go back next week to have him weighed and have the little chest/neck divot he has rechecked. He has a little dimple right up near his neck which is hopefully just a little skin defect. The other possibility is a tract from the thyroid which will hopefully be ruled out once the newborn screening results are back. My blood pressure is still up, but so far I don't have any other symptoms, so hopefully it will just begin to creep down on its own.

Bryn is still taking the adjustment well - she hardly seems to really notice much has changed. Of course that will probably be a different story once there are no more grandparents around!

Still no new pics - I am a bum! I'll use the stomach ailment as my excuse for today!

Oh no...I hope you all mend quickly! That's no fun being sick with a new one around.

Ouch! I bet that was not much fun while trying to adjust to life with a newborn & recovering from a c-section. Hope you're all feeling better.

Well, I am sorry I haven't been around for awhile, so I'm a little tardy with this CONGRATULATIONS!!!
I am so glad to hear of Grant's arrival, and to read up on all that's been going on for you.
Wow - He does have big cheeks! Looking forward to more pictures on my next visit. *grin*
