Adorable

Well we survived the shots :) The nurse was great, she went really fast, and she was actually done before he let out the worst cry I have ever heard. So I immediately scooped him up and he started calming down and even smiled at me when I put him in the car. haha...I felt forgiven :)

We've been doing the Tylenol thing every 4 hours, which has helped. He hasn't felt his same totally happy self today, but I'm sure tomorrow he'll be all back to normal!

Meanwhile, I'm trying to focus on my final exam that I have on Thursday. It's really hard to stay on top of that because I have so many other things on my mind. Every day that passes takes me one day closer to having to go back to work. It makes me physically hurt. I know that millions of moms do this every day, but thank you to all of you who have been like "it's going to suck, and you're going to cry, and you're going to hate it." Those words have actually helped me so much actually. I go back to work on Monday.

Wes comes home next Thursday night. I can't wait to see him! I've been spending a lot of time with my parents, which has been a huge help to me!

I still haven't lost all my pregnancy weight...which is basically annoying. I have no doubt that it will all eventually come off, it's just frustrating not being able to fit into my jeans.

Geez... could I be more negative? Ok. Good things: Wes and the boys are doing great on the road! God is definitely using them and I am so proud of their dedication to their work! Eli is doing great and is very healthy! He is now 13.6 lbs and 23.5 inches long! Such a big guy now! We're working hard on "tummy time" every day, even though he doesn't like it too much... Old Navy is having a 40% off Kids/Baby clothes sale! Meredith, me, and my mom got Eli some much needed clothes for 3-6 months and 6-12 months! All good things :)

Here is Eli today! So precious in this little outfit! Thanks Sarah!






Here is Eli yesterday at the doctor's office (pre shots).

I came across your blog a while ago. Yes, it is going to stink going back to work. I still hate going to work every day and leaving my little girl and she is already 2! But just think, you will get to see the cutest little face when you get home every afternoon!

ohhh... I absolutely loathe taking Lauren in for her shots. She now recognizes where we are, and will not let our doctor touch her without her getting fussy. She is a drama queen though. Hang in there, Wes is almost home!!

I'll be praying for you this weekend and Monday. Try to enjoy your husband being home this weekend.

i always feel bad for parents on baby shots day. i'm glad i'm not the one giving them.

Stop fretting over your baby weight. It took you 9 months to get it there, and you can't expect it to all be gone in 2 months. You look fabulous, as always, and I'm sure you'll be back in your jeans in no time. If you're not, use it as an excuse to go shopping. Fabulous.

Hi, I found you through the Chandlers...I find it fascinating to keep up with part of a 'band' that I am truly beginning to love....Thanks.

About shots...4 years ago when I took my daughter, Perryn, in I cried when they gave them to her. Just to see her in so much pain was difficult. I don't think I cried as long with my son, Teagan 2 years ago. However, BOTH of them were asleep before we left the doctor's office. Peace and forgiveness right there.

Good luck with everything in having to go back to work. I can only imagine what it is going to be like. Hang in there, God will make it work out for you.
Blessings,
Elizabeth

Okay. Seriously! He is the cutest little boy I have ever seen!

Just wanted to tell you that I am praying for you today as you are back at work. At least you will have a beautiful and smiling baby boy to greet you when you come home. Know that this is just a short season in life for you. Not that that makes it any easier. Blessings!

Just letting you know that I'm thinking about you going back to work today. I know it will be hard, but it will be ok. Promise. *hug*

It's only been two months since you had your baby - it takes 9 months to put the pregnancy weight on you shouldn't expect it to come right off.

Praying for you this week, sister, as you make the transition back in to work. How comforting to know that you have loved ones surrounding you to help take care of your little man!
