I took Hunter to the dr today for his 2 week visit. He's growing like a champ and has hit 7 lb 7 oz. And it looks like either the measurement they took at the hospital when he was born was either wrong, or he's grown almost 2 inches in 2 weeks. (They said he was 19 inches at birth, and he measured 20 3/4 inches today). I'm thinking he wasn't quite stretched out when they measured him at birth. And his umbilical cord stump fell off today too. (Like you really needed to know that.....)
But other than that he is looking great.
The rest of us on the other hand....It looks Cory and I have come down with some kind of flu or something. We are both so achey and crummy feeling; nausea, headaches - the "gunk". I had things to get done on my 'list' (which by the way has really worked, and helped me get a lot done this week) this afternoon - but instead I curled up in the recliner with Hunter and took a rest - it was great. Good thing my to-do list is somewhat flexible huh?
So tonight I'm planning on making something simple for dinner, having us all get in our jammies, and having a family movie night. I'm hoping to persuade Cory and Gabe to watch "High School Musical 2" on the Disney Channel with me...but we might be watching something animated of Gabe's choice. We'll see. Either way, I hope we get to bed early and sleep well - all of us!
And speaking of dinner, I'm proud to announce that I've made a healthy, well-balanced meal every night for the last 5 nights, and I have meals planned and shopped for through next weekend. It feels good.
Gabe and I even made zuchinni bread one afternoon (he loved dumping the sugar in), and homemade oreo cookies yesterday afternoon (and he helped a TON with the cookies - and loved it all). I think he'll be wanting to help a lot in the kitchen now that I whet his appetite for it.
Well everyone, have a great weekend and here's hoping you stay healthy and don't get this 'gunk' that we've got!
