Oh How Time Flies

Well, we just finished the second week with me at work at Isaac in daycare. I, believe it or not, have not fallen to pieces, the world has not stopped turning, and Isaac continues to breathe, eat, sleep, and be a happy baby without me by his side. Aside from a few glitches which I dare not go into lest I'll be here all night, things have gone rather well. Isaac developed a mild rash on Monday and his daycare director asked me to have the doctor look at. She said it was likely a reaction from the antibiotic he had been on the week before for his infected ingrown toenail. Then when I picked him up on Tuesday they had just noticed that he had hives all over his neck and cheeks, so I took him to the pediatrician's urgent care. They again told me that it could be a number of things including leftover antibiotic in his system and gave me an antihistamine in case they seemed to make him itch. They went away on their own and haven't been back since.

I'm thrilled to report that Isaac is sleeping through the night as he has been since he was 10 1/2 weeks old- the weekend before I went back to work. Perfect timing- my little angel is too good to me. He's been sleeping a lot the past few days. Aside from waking up just enough to eat, he slept from 5:00 yesterday until 6:30 this morning. I feel like I can't spend any time with him. Even this evening he was awake for a little bit but wasn't his normal playful self. He just seemed like he was staying awake to humor me. I suppose he's just going through a growth spurt and needs his rest.

Well, I really don't have much else to report, but I wanted to at least make a post with the NEW pictures I added. They are all from the past two weeks. There are new pictures of the outside of the house as well in the house set. I finally go around to hanging planters on the porch so it looks like someone actually lives here. Enjoy the pictures!

Been Awhile

I guess, since it's been over a month, it is probably time to update everyone on our lives. We lead pretty boring lives, but I'll share the newsworthy information.

1) Isaac has officially started his time in day care. As of this morning, Virginia went back to work which means Isaac needs to go to daycare. Virginia said this morning that she is doing fine, but i'm sure it hurt a little to leave him. Be praying that she continues to do OK with leaving him each morning.

2) We now have Vonage. In case you have no clue what that is, it allows us to pay $24.95 per month and have unlimited local and long distance AND get rid of our telephone company. The way it works is, we have cable internet. Vonage sends us a phone adapter that connects right to the internet and gives us a dial tone. It's really pretty cool. So, now we'll be able to call people and not have to use a phone card anymore. I'm excited about that.

3) Isaac went to the doctor yesterday because he has an ingrown toe nail on his left big toe. The doctor gave him an antibiotic, which he doesn't like because it tastes bad. Virginia is going to take it to get it flavored today. Be praying that the toe nail heals and doesn't get infected.

4) Opening day for MLB begins today and I am psyched. I am working a half day today so I can head home and watch the Cubs game. I've been doing that for as long as I can remember. It's a tradition for me.
