Its been a crazy 2 weeks! I’m going to try to keep the update short so that I have time to post up pictures–lots of pictures. This is the only ‘household’ task I’m assigning to myself today: update the blog.
March 16 7:30 am:I check into St Lukes hospital in labor
12:35 pm Naomi Jane is born!*
March 18 Dirk and I bring Naomi home!*
March 20 Josiah develops a high fever (101-103 degrees), no appetite and is exhausted.*
March 21-My parents return from England–yay! J still has a fever and looks terrible.
March 22 Naomi’s due date- Dirk’s mom heads for home after staying with us for a week–a HUGE help! Thanks! J still has a low grade fever.
March 23 We figure out the cause of Josiah’s fever–he has roseola again! The fever is gone, but he has a rash of red spots all over him. Dirk goes back to work and its my first day alone as the mom of two kids. 🙂 Naomi is a week old. *
March 25 I feel sick. Waves of fever and chills with lots of nausea.
March 27 I feel better. Josiah and Naomi share an appointment at the dr’s office: Two year and two week check up, respectively.* Shots all around. Dirk comes home exhausted and complaining of nausea and weakness.
March 28. Josiah has a small ‘breakfast birthday bash’ with family.* Dirk wakes up sick, and spends the morning sleeping on my parent’s couch.
March 29 I get a small taste of what its like to be a single parent–Dirk, Josiah, and Naomi need to be cared for.
March 30 Naomi is two weeks old!* Dirk returns to work for a couple of hours but is still weak.
March 31 Dirk is better and its Josiah turns TWO!!*
Those are the essentials. Typing it up, it doesnt seem like we were as busy as it felt–but if I havent answered or returned your phone calls or emails, please know its only because all conditions must be perfect for me to be able to chat. I’ll get the hang of it all soon, I hope! I’ll post up things like Naomi’s birth story, pictures and other fun tidbits as soon as I can–thanks for your patience.
* Pictures to follow
