We have had Mason home for about 3 weeks now. There has been lots of ajusting to do but we could not be happier to have him with us. The first week we had him he slept good at night woke up about 2 or three times. Starting the second week we could not get him to sleep all night in his own crib. So we have figured the only way he will sleep thru the night is if he is in bed with us. I really dont want him getting use to that but as of right now we are getting much more sleep than last week and its easier for me to feed him since he is in the bed with us. I dont think Raul sleeps much because he is paranoid that he will squish Mason.
He has been eating real good. He has his days where it seems he wants to eat every hour then the next day he is back to his usual two three hour routine. We had a doctors appointment Thursday and he weighed in at 5lbs 8oz. The pediatrician said he is doing real good. Right now our only consern is that because he was born two months early his retina have not developed all the way yet. He had his eyes checked when he left the NICU and we had to go back today. They have improved but they are still not fully developed. We have to go back on the 11th to get them checked again since he will be at full term by then. We are definitely praying that they do improve so he does not have any problems with them.
Since he came early I did not get to have a baby shower so some of Rauls coworkers had a BBQ for us two weeks ago and then this past Saturday we had one at our house. We definitely want to thank everyone for helping us welcome home Mason.
Our friends Mike and Leslie found out this week they are having a baby boy so we are very excited for the and cant wait to meet him. Mason and him will be about 5 months apart. Also, our friends Danny and Jeannie will be moving back to the mainland soon. We hate that they are moving since we have not known each other for very long but thats what happens when your a military family. We wish yall the best and hopefully we will run into each other again KIT.
Thursday and Friday we will be attending a marriage retreat at Turtle Bay Resort. We r really excited about that. Well I know Raul is excited about staying at Turtle bay and Im looking forward to the work shops maybe we will learn something.
