Another try

Oy, my last posting was kind of pathetic LOL

Let's try again. It's a few days later. Last night Ben Hoyoung (I still can't let go of the Hoyoung) slept from 8:30 p.m. until almost 6 a.m. this morning with only 2 bottles! Of course today he refused to nap, so we'll see how tonight goes.

He's had his initial doctor's appointment the other day and went to the lab yesterday to give blood. I was really dreading that one, but he didn't even blink. He did scream bloody murder in the car seat though. So - giving blood is okay, car seat not so much. Now we get to collect stool samples. Yummy.

We're also scheduling our first post placement visit with our social worker! I can't believe how fast time is passing. The last weeks are just one big blur. Did they really happen? It seems surreal, still.

Ben Hoyoung is practicing pulling himself up to a stand and also likes to yank on my hair and bite my fingers and then gives me the silliest giggle and wiggle. He is also still very interested in the cats' food and not giving up until he can try some one day. He does not however care for the food I make for him. He likes puffs though, which I have been using way to much to bribe him.

The house is still a mess, but I now attribute it to my husband being home from work.

All in all things are really improving around here (I hope I didn't just jinx it) and I am seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.


  1. It's crazy how fast time flies post-baby! It gets worse.
    And as for the house being a mess? Here we are, nearly two years later, and my house is STILL a mess!

  2. I cannot seem to keep my house clean! I am trying to let it go so I can get some sleep instead cleaning:) I am glad Ben is settling in and giggling. Hopefully you will post a video of him giggling!

  3. Sandra, so glad to hear things are calming down a bit - you are now officially super mom!! Love all the new pictures of Ben, he is BEAUTIFUL!! Such a sweet face and the most beautiful eyes and eyelashes!!
