2 month Vaccines

Can I get yall's opinion on what you think about 2 month vaccines. 
Did yall give them to your children? 

I have done some research and I don't know what to think, especially since his due date isn't even here and he is almost 2 months old. 
 Whitt has his 2 month appointment next week and I don't know what to do.

If you don't feel comfortable writing your thoughts in the comment area, please email me.

Sit around Saturday

Just a little bit of Whitt





Psalm 107:19-20 

19 Then they cried to the LORD in their trouble, 

       and he saved them from their distress.

20 He sent forth his word and healed them; 

       he rescued them from the grave.

Living.Little.man.style.

So the little man passed his car seat test
After the Second try...
So.... 
We got to TAKE HIM HOME!!!!!!!!!
And do things like give him a bath
And carry him around free of wires.....
He gets to sleep next to us (and wake us up every 3 hours :( Joy Bliss)
We are so so excited to be home with our little man. He has been an absolute JOY!
We took him to his first pediatrician appointment and he is growing like a weed, he now weighs 5 lbs 5 oz. He has been such a great baby and we are so grateful for was God has been doing for us. God is good!!!! 
Whittaker is 6 weeks old tomorrow, I cant believe he is almost 2 months old, it is just mind boggling to me how old he actually is. I sometimes think that he is just a couple days old since he has only actually been home for a few days. 
Well I am going to get back to the Little Man.

 to a jail bird because I am a big boy now!!!!! 
Tonight is my first night in a crib. 

And if you haven't noticed in the pictures, 
I am missing something from my face.....

Any guess' ???

MY FEEDING TUBE

I am taking all my feeds in a bottle and let me tell you, I want more food than they give me. I get fed every 3 hours. I have also been able to sleep on my stomach here at the hospital and I love it, I throw a little fit when I am on my back....
 Mom and Dad are going to love that when I get home.
 
I am weighing...

DRUM ROLL

4 POUNDS 3 OUNCES

I am 16 1/2 inches long, 
I started out 15 1/2 inches... so I will take the inch!!!!
And no short jokes remember I wasn't "supposed" to be
 out for another month and a day

Well I am off to SNOOZE.... and get some beauty sleep,
 I am hoping my mom will be able to see me tomorrow!!!!
Here is a little glimpse of what I look like when I sleep and where my new home is for now......
SHHHHH, Baby sleeping!!!!!!!

Love
Baby Whitt

Psalms 8:1-9 
O Lord, our Lord, your majestic name fills the earth!
Your glory is higher than the heavens. 
You have taught children and infants to tell of YOUR strength, 
silencing your enemies and all who oppose you.
When I look at the night sky and see the work of your fingers- the moon and the stars you set in place- what are people that you should think about them, mere mortals that you should care for them? Yet you made them only a little lower than God and crowned them with glory and honor. You gave them charge over everything you made, putting all thing under their authority- the flocks and the herds and all the wild animals, the birds in the sky, the fish in the sea, and everything that swims in the ocean currents. 
O Lord, our Lord, your majestic name fills the earth.

STILL....

I am still in bed sick, sorry for the broken promise of a video....I cannot get it to download on my computer. Andy is going to have to bring the directions. I went to the doc today for my blistered face and now eyeball.... yes I have fever blisters on my eyeball. As my sister in law said, I look like an alien! I would post a picture but I will spare you having to look at me and spare me the embarrassment. So I have still yet to be able to go and see Whitt, I am hoping the blisters heal fast with the new meds and I will be able to go soon. Pray for that PLEASE!

Let me give you the latest update on the little man. 
He weighs 3lbs. 16oz...... almost 4 lbs. 
Closer to 4 than 3.16 the nurse said!!!!!!!
Praise GOD!!!!
WE ARE SO EXCITED!!
His feeds are up to 36cc a feed (there are 30cc in 1 ounce) which are 8x  a day.
4 of his feeds are given to him by bottle and not feeding tube, 
he took all the bottles yesterday so they bumped it up to 4 today. 
MY LITTLE MAN IS A CHAMP!
Yesterday he got mad at the nurse because he wanted more food. 
I cannot wait to hear him scream (I know I will take those words back someday), 
he is always so peaceful when we are there. 

God has really made himself so evident lately and I am so Thankful for that. He is really teaching our family so much and molding us in some pretty spectacular ways. 
I am excited to continue to be molded into the wife,
mother,friend,family that he wants me/us to be. 
Please to continue to be in prayer for our family of 3, plus Gus !!!

Here is a sweet picture from Sunday of little Whitt all bright eyed and ready to go. 
How can you just not love that little face?!?!?

I'm Sorry, so soo sorry!!!

I am sorry that I haven't updated on the little man in a while,
 he deserves so much more than that...
but I have been sick in bed for the past 4 days.
 I had a bout with mastitis (girls I am sure you know what that is. Men, if you are reading the blog.... just don't go there). So with that said I have been sleeping ALOT and trying to get that taken care of.  Tagging along with the mastitis came a nice fever of 103.8, well those of you who know me know that fevers and I don't get along.... they allow me the pleasure of getting fever blisters. So now I have about 30 fever blisters on my lips and 15 on my left eye lid. But with all they said, I am turning a corner and I am feeling much better but looking really gross!!!!! 
I have not been able to go to the hospital since Thursday so that has been awful, but I have some really great stuff to post later of Andy and Whitt. 
So I promise to post on Little Whittaker later on today when Andy can put 
the VIDEO (hint, hint)on my computer. 

LOVE.LOVE.LOVE.
