Our Life :: March 2011 :: Week 4

{March 20-26, 2011}

This was our 'Bringing Home Baby' week...
Here's a brief rundown:

Sunday: Welcome Home, Noah!
Today was Noah's homecoming... ironically it was also the day in which LA received the most rainfall... I guess he's just trying to live up to his name. :)

Monday: Noah and I went to a breast feeding class sponsored by St. Jude. They took a bunch of measurements and were able to figure out how much milk he was able to get from each side and all sorts of other useful information. Once again, there was a super sweet nurse. I love our hospital! This afternoon Grandpa Sasha had to fly back home to Iowa. We'll miss you Grandpa! Thanks for coming!!

Tuesday: Poor baby boy. Noah had his first doctor's appointment, and it wasn't with his pediatrician, but rather with my OB. I was caught off guard when they said we couldn't go back with him for the procedure, and his little cries made me cry. :( However, within minutes he was peacefully cuddled up with me again.

Wednesday: We had our 'Mother & Baby Wellness' appointment today. So far, so good. :) We received a lot of helpful information... some of which would be TMI for this blog, but let's just say I wish I had known it a lot sooner... like when Emily was a newborn!!
...and yes, we met yet another wonderful nurse today!
Tonight, Pete went up to Pepperdine to hear their Wind Ensemble rehearse his trumpet concerto--the concert's coming up on Friday!

Thursday: We had a restful day at home... but not a restful night... and not because of Noah!
To make a long story short... my mom got sick in the middle of the night... I called my brother, my dad, then 911. The fire department arrived first, followed by the EMTs. Noah slept through the WHOLE THING--his first night sleeping through the night, and he was the only one who slept! Haha!
(I can laugh now, because my mom ended up fine. )
They took her to the hospital, and it was scary, but after several tests, she came home Friday around noon with a mostly clean bill of health.
(She can tell you more if she so desires.)
Love you Mom, and we're glad you're okay!!

Friday: Pete had a recording session in the morning, and since Michael and my mom were still at the hospital, Pete dropped off Emily at Kathy's and I had my first day at home alone with Noah. I was nervous because it was unplanned (and we were out of most groceries and I couldn't drive!), but it was actually really nice and relaxing. Michael and my mom came back around lunch time, followed by Pete. That night, Pete and I took Noah to his first concert--to hear his dad's trumpet concerto up at Pepperdine! Pete's friend, Dusty, played and sounded great and we had a nice time getting out of the house together. :)

Saturday: Grandma Sasha left early this morning our of LAX. We miss her already! (I had to make myself breakfast this morning... how sad!)
We did enjoy our day at home though, it was the first time that it was just the four of us at home!

Now, on to the pictures, and yes, I was able to limit it to seven this week. :)
