12.3.09 - Back to work...

I started back to work this week.  It is good to be in more of a routine during the day and be able to get my work done at work so I can come home and spend time with Liam.  But I do miss my little guy a lot!  Dustin and I have settled into a pretty good routine I think too as far as getting up in the morning and managing the early morning and evening feedings so we can both do what needs to be done.  Liam has been a great sleeper at night too, so I hope that continues.

I am so thankful that my dad is able to take care of Liam everyday for us so we do not have to put him in day care.  My dad does a great job and just loves being able to be with Liam all day every day!  It's neat too because I leave a little schedule notebook for him to write down all the events of the day, like diapers, feedings, what kind of mood Liam is in, etc. and it is so fun to read everyday to see what they did and how Liam was.  What a great little keepsake we will have for Liam to when he is older!

This past Monday Liam had his 2 month well check at the pediatricians.  He is doing GREAT!!  He was in the 35th percentile on height at 22.5 inches and 25th percentile on weight at 10 lbs. 9.5 oz. He is growing so much and we are thrilled.  We have an appointment with the ENT to check his vocal chord next Monday.  Our prayer is that his vocal chord has healed completely.  From the sound of it, I think it has!  Depending on what the ENT says, I am hoping to schedule a repeat swallow study again to see if this time Liam can pass and start taking a bottle.  That will be a long road too though.  Building his strength to take a whole feeding will take some time, so we will probably have to keep the tube in for a bit longer I am expecting.

I am looking forward to the weekend!  Dustin will be watching Liam all on his own for part of Saturday while I go out for a girl's day.  Then I will be working hard on getting his birth announcements done!
