ok people I give you FULL permission to email me and say um hello,post please?!?! i’m awful! im sorry !!!! i totally love miss and rely on you, i even sometimes have the gall to check in on you and not post! burn me at the stake please.

Fatso has an appt on March 2nd for his 2 month wellness and immunizations. yes he was 2 months on Feb 11th, yes I waited that long on purpose. I will have him immunized…but I will also do it on my own time table. (as long as he’s not in a school or daycare who cares) My guess at weight at 2 months 2 weeks…12lbs or over. he’s tubby. Chase eats 6 oz every 3 hours regularly during daytime hours, give or take an oz. at night he can eat 4 to 6 oz anywhere from 2 1/2 to 4 hours between feedings. we’re still in a battle for hours of rest for Mommy and she’s been back at work since Feb. 4th.

I’m so tired so so tired and my top med dosage from recent years has been doubled. so chop crankiness, depression, pissiness, bitchiness and crying jagness in half. thats something ha ha.

Chase scratches his face CONSTANTLY. we have the mitts off for 3 mins and he’s bleeding. he looks ridiculous with them on and they make his hands sweaty and stinky..yikes. his cradle cap is looking more like echzema or psoriasis now, red flakey itchy scaly irritated no matter what “remedy” for cradle cap we use. I slather him with auqaphor stuff twice daily which makes it look less flakey and red but it still feels like a 90 year old with a severe tanning obsession. something to bother his Dr. with. also I switched to the Ped”s Dr everyone recommended and got rid of the woman i hate!! yay!

My meds make birth control less effective or vice versa…they suggested Mirena or the other one that looks similar. I have to call my insurance and see if they are covered. otherwise it’s $500. um hi I have 2 kids and a dog with health issues, let me toss you $500 bucks for that crap! ewww.

I chopped my short chin length bob to a funky shorter crazy do, which I was loving for 4 hours yesterday after it was done until Anders told me ” um mom you know that jon and kate plus 8 show” yeah buddy ” well you look like the mom”. eww, so not funny, it resembles it BUT is a little cooler and a little less giant solid chunk of hair to the side. I do have a chunk longer on one side but its textured . ok ok I know who am I trying to convince right?? I’ll post pics in a bit in a new hair post ha ha. I waited til i was more emotionally stable before deciding to chop it, that way it wouldn’t be a rash decision I regretted later.

Anders is acting up in school, still. got sent to the principals office, lied and said he didn’t and then lied in front of his teacher and said he did…moron. so we’re doing a lil trial and error over here with both boys. Walkers a pain, a helpful pain who is way more well rested than he deserves and I remind him of  that everyday.






what a whirlwind week its been. Chase is 8 days old already, I can’t even believe it. So I have a lot to update on here. Sorry to leave you guys waiting so long. 

I made it through the entire c-section with just an epidural. It was the most disgusting, creepy, odd feeling thing I have ever experienced in my life, and I will never be doing it again (for 2 reasons, the surgery is only one, i will post a separate post on the 2nd reason).  The Dr. cut out my old crooked scar and fixed the new one up pretty. yay! When I heard him cry for the first time it was surreal, i never had that with Anders. I immediately started crying, and then asking if he had hypospadias or cleft palate. negative. he is perfect. Walker was crying as they handed his son to him and we all huddled up near my head and cried. In fact we’re still crying. I still can not believe he’s here sometimes.

As they rolled me into recovery I could already move my legs and feet, they were shocked. I could also feel pain. on a scale of 1 to 10 it was a 5. so they shot morphine into my drip. 5 minutes later it gradually increased and i was crying, my pain was an 8. they pushed more morphine. lets just say i spent the evening burning up, throwing up and nodding off while talking to visitors and Anders. it was a mess. the next few days went well, i was up and about with minimal pain.  Everyone was impressed. I even took all the feedings 2 nights in a row myself in my room. yeah i’m awesome ha ha!

Chase is my night to Anders day. he is calm, content, reliable and rarely cries. Even when he cries it isn’t loud at all. I could stare at him all day. Walker is so wonderful and as if I didn’t love him enough I love him even more everyday. He has been my rock, he has taken care of me, shown me such a sweet & vulnerable side of him that our love has reached a whole new level. This man and these boys are my WHOLE life and I’d be happy if we were locked away all together with no one else forever. OK so I’m sappy these days but I have never felt about anyone the way i feel about Walker now. I could probably see myself promising forever without a second guess despite how badly my first marriage went.

Chase Rodrick was born on 12-11-08 at 3:02pm, he weighed 7lbs 7.4oz (uh yeah thats big for me) and was 19 3/4 inches long. He was slightly jaundice from the neck up, but not enough to require treatment and its nearly gone. he did well with his circumcision which is nearly healed and his stump” will probably fall off today. he’s squishy and yummy and so cute it hurts my heart and thats not just his mom talking, nurses had to stop in extra to look at him cause he’s so cute…yeah my babies are man-pretty.

so ask away about anything I forgot and without further adieu:

I've been waiting for you my whole life

I've been waiting for you my whole life
