Daddy got back surgery:

Wednesday, July 31, 2013

So, Jake has had back problems off and on for about 6 years now. When Cash was about 3 weeks old he woke up one morning in a crazy amount of pain and 4 weeks later caved and got an MRI. Insert: Herniated disk and back surgery on the calendar:( He is currently 6 days post surgery and has about 9 days left of basically living on the couch until his follow up appt with the Doctor. The downside? When all is said and done he will have gone almost 8 weeks not being able to walk and carry Cash. The upside is they are getting some quality father-son time in the sitting position. 

(Jake's friends brought him a walker as a joke and it's certainly come in handy!)

(Is it just me or does Cash look like his mama?)

Boating with baby

I thought May was such a great month to give birth, not considering what it would be like to fight the sweltering heat and stuffy humidity with a little baby. It's hot. He sticks to me. My son is just like his father- an oven. But that has not stopped us from boating-- three times.
On our family friend's boat, Mackinaw City

Hanging out with Shannon on my Mom and Dad's boat

Nursing on a boat in 85 degree heat. Hot, hot, hot

Napping by himself in the cabin for about...5 minutes. He prefers to be held during nap time:)

Cruisin' on our boat...that we owned for approximately 3 weeks. More on that later...

Playing catch up

Our sweet Cash is 8 weeks old today and we are finally getting our bearings. He had a really fussy couple of weeks and has turned the corner! Yay! He is a sweet boy. Here are some stats:

Stats: Cash is in the 90th percentile at 13 lbs, 3 oz and 23.5 inches long. He's a big boy and LOVES his milk.

What's new: He smiles and laughs quite often, especially at his daddy. Maybe he thinks he's funny looking:) He also has an actual bedtime now--9-9:30. He is becoming predictable and we cannot get enough of him or enough pictures of him!


There's just a few photos of that beautiful face. Whoever thought I would have a blue eyed child? I hope they stick. Off to kiss him now...
