Good Thyroid!

We got the test results back on JR late yesterday afternoon and they came back NORMAL. Thank goodness! So, all is well with his thyroid.

In other JR news, he has started spitting up a lot. A LOT. I am thinking that he is somehow eating too much when he nurses. For one, he eats so fast that I am thinking perhaps he doesn't realize he is full until he is way past full...but I dunno. I will have to ask around about what to do. We already have him reclined after eating, and I burp him a lot (he is a burping champ). Oh well, in the scheme of things, it only stinks because I have to wash more laundry. And I hate doing laundry.

In Little Dude news, he is starting to jump! Cool beans! He discovered the fun of jumping on our bed this morning, and since he doesn't weigh enough to hurt the bed yet, I figured it was OK for now.

Can I just say there is nothing better than a toddlers screams of laughter?'

I am so glad to hear that things are going well for you and JR. We were all a little worried about him earlier in your pregnancy when you posted about his possible kidney abnormalities. So glad to hear that you've been taking such good care of him and that he is A-Ok.

I hope the spitting up thing is just a phase, and perhaps he will figure out how much is the right amount to eat at a time. :( That must stink, (literally, hehe). I would be willing to take some of that laundry off your hands as a late "baby present" because we were slackers and didn't get anything together (and because you delivered almost a month early!). Tuesday or Friday would work for me this week. If I don't hear from you about it tomorrow, Monday, I WILL call you about it, because I want to do this for you. I know that you work very hard and you deserve a break! Since I really sort of like doing laundry, this would be a great way for me to help you out, I think.

Hope all is well with you, and bummer I had to work last night and missed seeing Ben. (Another reason i need to see you this week!) I've been trying to stay out of your hair, but I simply MUST see this child soon! I bet he is just too cute!!
