Josh likes Mikey

Its been a couple of busy days, so I’m behind on blogging.¬† ūüôā

Josh is teething, so of course, he’s crying a lot.¬† Yesterday (Sunday) morning, Josh woke up crying.¬† I picked him up and tried to calm him down.¬† No luck.¬† Mommy took him, still Josh cried.¬† So, Amanda & I took turns getting ready for Church.¬† Josh was still crying.¬† I went and put him in his crib and then went and got Mikey from his room, waking him up.¬† I laid¬†Mikey on¬†our bed and started to get him ready for Church.¬† I went and got Josh and laid him on the bed next to Mikey.¬† Josh saw Mikey and Mikey reached out and held Josh’s hand and… Joshy stopped crying.

We're Home

We got home from the Hospital a few days ago, but I hadn’t taken the time to post since then.¬† While Amanda¬†was pregnant with Josh, we¬†had told Mikey that Baby Josh was in Mommy’s tummy.¬† He seemed to understand and so I could ask him “Mikey where is Baby Josh?” and he would go touch Mommy’s stomach.¬† When we first introduced Mikey to his little brother Josh after we left the hospital, Mikey looked a little confused.¬† He then walked over to Amanda and lifted up her shirt so he could look at her stomach!

Shh! Don't Wake Baby

Baby Josh had a dipper change, some Momma Juice and has now fallen back asleep.¬† I thought I’d take a few minutes to post some updates.¬† I posted yesterday a little bit of information as did Mommy.¬† However, neither of us posted very much information.

Josh was born at 5:54 PM Tuesday (18 March 08).¬† He weighed 7 lbs and was 18.25 inches long.¬† When he was first born, he was very pale and, as a result, the Nurses were a little worried.¬† They took Josh to the NICU.¬† Being his Daddy, I abandoned Amanda and went with Josh to the NICU.¬† I stayed with Josh until 6:30 pm when I was kicked out of the NICU, as they close to visitors until 8:00 pm for shift change.¬† So, I proceeded back to the recovery room with Amanda and stayed with her.¬† At about 7:50 pm, the hospital staff moved us to the room we’d be staying in until Amanda is discharged.¬† A few minutes after we got in this room, they took Josh back to us.¬† He is much more pink than he was, but still is pale compared to both Amanda & I as well as Mikey.¬† All of his vitals look good, however, so the staff thinks he will be fine.¬†¬†Josh has been sleeping and eating well.

While the 3 of us have been at the Hospital, my sister, “Shell” (as Mikey calls her) has been watching Mikey for us.¬† She had surgery recently and so, one of my cousin’s 10-year old daughter came over to help babysit Mikey.¬† He has done very well so far with them.¬† He slept through the night and has had fun playing with them.¬† Neither my Mom nor Amanda’s Mom were able to come down to Vegas,¬†so, while we miss them, we’re glad that Aunt Michelle is able to play with Mikey and we’re very grateful for her, as well as Taylor, Ammon & Rosie (who watched Mikey for a couple of hours yesterday).

I promise, I’ll get more pictures of Josh uploaded soon!
