In the past week, we've experienced.......
* Brandon being admitted to the hospital for jaundice. Nothing threatening but 25 hours under UV lights wasn't exactly a fun time for baby nor mom.
* Infections from the C-Section. Let's just say OUCH!
* A circumcision - ok, another OUCH!
* Daddy left for an allergy conference in New Orleans (he'll be back on Tuesday)
* Amanda battled with a horrible cough, slight fever, and hives over many parts of her body.
* A good family friend passed away
So, we packed up and stayed at Grandma's house for a few days to get some tender-loving care. My kids did NOT want to come home tonight. Being at Grandma's is way too much fun - for all of us.

Brandon had his first sponge bath tonight with a full audience of interested little girls. Too cute! His sisters are definitely smitten with him and love each and every new experience he's having. He didn't cry once. I think I finally got a mellow baby (knock on wood). And now he smells delicious.

This little guy is getting LOTS of attention! We are having so much fun with him. And Valentine's Day couldn't have been any better. Troy took the kids to church while Brandon and I snuggled and slept. We made our traditional S'mores then watched Fred Astaire and Audrey Hepburn in Funny Face followed by a few hours of Olympic coverage. Brandon was just passed around so everyone could get their fix. This is one very loved little boy.

Brandon Max Scribner, 8 lb. 13 oz (WOW!), 21 inches, February 10, 2010 at 8:21 am. Surgery went exceptionally well. Brandon had to be in the nursery because of labored breathing until this morning but now he's with Mom and things are much better. With his IV out we'll be able to get some more pictures soon.

We had way too much fun over Christmas vacation. For nearly 3 weeks, we just played and played - stayed up late, slept in, didn't worry about naptimes or routines....... and now we're still paying for it with Camille. She still needs a nap and will sleep 3-4 hours after going down. The problem is that she doesn't want to go down for a nap until after 2:00 in the afternoon, which means she wakes up at dinner time, which means she doesn't go down for the night until very late. NOT GOOD!!! I need quiet, no children time in my evenings. So we have tried many things. No naps - hmmmmm - cranky child, early bedtime, middle of the night waking up. NOT GOOD! Adjusted naps - hmmmmm - wake her up out of a dead sleep, deal with very cranky child, still doesn't go to bed early. NOT GOOD! So last night she was hyper as could be and I told her to go see her daddy. When I came out 5 minutes later, this is what I found. Too precious. I hope we can figure out this sleep thing before next Wednesday when the baby arrives!

Camille regularly finds me at my computer and hears "I'll be there in a minute. I need to finish my work." So I should not have been surprised when I entered the room one day and found her frantically jamming on my computer keyboard. She looked at me seriously and said "I work! I work!" (You should've seen the mess I had to clean up on my computer.)
