2 months

Holy chunky!

Wow, time goes by fast! Carden had his 2 month check up today and his stats are:

Length: 24 1/4-90th percentile
Weight: 13 lbs, 1 oz-90th percentile

I knew I had a big baby! Crazy that he has almost doubled his birth weight, because apparently he's not supposed to do that until he's four months. What a show off :) He is now in size 2 diapers and wears 3-6 month clothes.

For Carden's two month birthday, he decided to give his mama a present and start sleeping through the night. Yep, he can now sleep for eight hours straight, as long as he's not gassy. If I don't give him Mylicon drops he wakes up tooting.

So sleepy and fussy after his shots today

So yesterday I dressed Carden in the cutest church outfit and was going to take a picture of it after church, but he decided to have major poopy pants during the sacrament and totally blew out his diaper. Church is so much more entertaining with a baby :)

And now about me...Friday night my fever spiked again at 102.4 so we called my doctor and she recommended going to the ER to have my duct drained with a syringe. So we got there, waited for a couple of hours, paid a hundred dollars and saw the doctor for 3o seconds while he told me to go home and nurse my baby because they can't help with Mastitis. OK, because I haven't tried that one before. Whatever. I've now had this plugged milk duct for about 6 weeks. Six. Weeks. It hasn't been painful until this past weekend when I got the mastitis. And now the infection is clearing up with the antibiotics, but I still don't know what to do about clearing the duct. I'm going in on Wednesday to see if he can empty it with the syringe but the lactation consultants I've been talking to don't have a lot of faith in that. No one seems to know what to do with me because it's basically unheard of for a duct to be plugged this long. Grr. So I still don't know what's going on. But at least my fever is down and it doesn't hurt like it did this weekend!

A Special Day For Us

Carden managed to make sacrament special today. Thank you my son. You make me proud.

This Thanksgiving? it Stink. Stank. Stunk.

Let's start with the negative first.

What I'm NOT thankful for: clogged milk ducts, MASTITIS, 101.5 degree fevers, doctors offices and urgent cares that are closed on Thanksgiving Day, a screaming baby with an upset tummy while I have a 101.5 degree fever and no husband at home to help.

What I am thankful for: A husband who comes home when I beg, my mom and dad being in town, an aunt to runs over to help, a cousin who insists that I call my doctor EVEN IF IT IS THANKSGIVING BECAUSE YOU NEED HELP AND THEY ARE PAID FOR THIS DANG IT!, 24 hour pharmacies, drugs, and a super cute baby who is happy now, even if he won't take his nap like he's supposed to.

The verdict of this whole situation: Most likely I'll be getting surgery on Monday. We'll see if the drugs work, but I'm not very hopeful.

Just pics

I hate tummy time!

What??! You've got to be kidding me!

I will almost smile for you. Almost.

Droopy cheeks!

Mama said she wants to eat me cause I look like chocolate mint. She's weird.

I'm already dressing like Daddy-shorts and long socks.

Six Weeks

This is how Carden feels about turning 6 weeks old today:

I know, it's upsetting to me as well. I can't believe how fast time goes!

Carden had his one month appointment last Thursday. He was 10 lbs, 7 oz then, so now I'm pretty sure he's at the 11 lb mark.

Last Sunday, Josh said there was a baby blessing of a little boy who was about the same age as Carden. And his name was CARDON! I'm so mad. We chose this name knowing there wouldn't be very many Cardens, and to meet one so soon and in our own ward just makes me mad. GRRRR.

Matchy Matchy Diapers Squared!

With Maggie in diapers now, I totally get what it's like to raise twins.
