I have a new Sister-in-law!

Yep, my brother tied the knot yesterday. Congratulations Mike and Abbey! The wedding was perfect. Eli semi-cooperated, and took a LONG nap in the bridal suite immediately after his groomsmen duties were complete. The food and music were great. Everyone had a fantastic time!

Big Brother Eli

Eli LOVES being a big brother. He likes to hold Jhett, feed him, and always checks on him when he is crying. He gives him hugs and kisses and tells him "shhh! it's okay!" LOL. Just sharing a couple pics:

Adjusting to life with a newborn

It has been surprisingly much easier with Jhett than it was with Eli. I think Jhett kept me awake more before he was born than he does now. We made it through the first week with no problems. I remember being so sleep deprived and grouchy after bringing Eli home from the hospital, but Jhett doesn't cry quite as loud, which is what I think stressed me out so much with Eli. He is really alert from 9-11pm, but mostly sleeps for the rest of the day. Another thing I was slightly worried about was Eli being jealous. But so far he hasn't been. He is such a good big brother, always wanting to help feed Jhett, give him hugs, and hold him. We are a happy little family!

Baby Jhett is here!

Jhett Xander Wilmore has arrived! He was born on 3/3/10 at 4:12pm. He weighed 8lbs 1oz and was 20 3/4 inches long. He got a 9.9 on the apgar. He is perfect in every way! We came home from the hospital yesterday and are adjusting well. Eli loves his new baby brother and we couldn't be happier. I am so excited about my new little man.

random thoughts

1-it's 2:26am and i am up....watched infomercials for a while. i *so* want to send mr. t 3 easy payments of $39.95 and get that nifty flavorwave oven. I have been wanting it for months and months. Maybe when he knocks it down to 2 easy payments....

2-didn't feel like i'd be able to go back to sleep, especially after seeing those mouth watering cinnamon rolls that baked up so fresh and yummy in only 11 minutes. it actually made my mouth water. so i got up and made sweet tea in my new tea maker, which i'm lovin' btw. i never really cared for tea before, i guess jhett likes it b/c for some reason, i've been drinking it the past few weeks. eli introduced me to pineapple while i was pregnant with him, also something i never liked before. interesting how pregnancy can permantely alter your taste buds.

3-while we're talking pregnancy, i think my timer has popped. my stretch marks are bleeding, signifying that my skin just cannot stretch anymore. hear that jhett? you can come out now!

4-i have this constant thirst the past few days. my glucose test came back normal several weeks ago, but i've been wondering what the chances of developing GD after taking the test are. i find myself getting out of bed at 2:26am and making sweet tea, drinking a huge glass, going back for a refill. my throat/mouth/lips seem so dry, almost like i'm dehydrated. i went to bed with 3 full water bottles on my headboard and woke up before the night was over with only one of them half-full. and now i'm sitting here drinking tea.

5-vent/whine time: i'm nauseated, have heartburn, i'm freezing (b/c this house is either too hot or too cold, we have a thermostat issue and can never get it right).

that is all.
