The fussing and crying continues with Jonah. Last night was terrible. He was crying and crying for several hours. Everything we did was unsuccessful. I finally called his surgeon this morning (paged actually) and I am still waiting to hear back. She mentioned the antibitoic/steroid eye drops he is taking 4x day can cause irritation and I'm wondering if this is part of the problem. So I am trying to get her to call in a new prescription and maybe some Tyenol w/Codeine for nights when he is in so much pain he just is inconsolable. Bless his heart.

Noah is as cute as a button. He is trying so hard to make all kinds of noises and sounds and he constantly talks to his mobile, often at the top of his lungs. He talks to everything that he thinks is listening and it is so cute to see. He is still scooting with his back legs and we hope with a few more weeks on the floor he'll figure out how to coordinate his arms plus legs to start crawling.

Happy almost 6th month (adjusted) birthday boys!! I always go by their adjusted birthday when thinking of time. So on the 24th of July they will be 6 months adjusted.

Linda leaves tomorrow and we are sad to see her go. She has been a huge help, I am not sure how we would have done things without both her help as well as my father's help. We have been hugely blessed in way of family.

The rest of the week I'm sure I'll spend figuring out how to manage both boys with two hands. =)

Little Jonah will be in our prayers. Seriously, get him some GREAT painkillers! After all of Gracie's issues, I have become a great proponent of pain control. I found her healing slowed down when she was having to fight heavy pain. It's so grueling to see your babies suffer.

The Lord is aware of you and you are loved.
