I forgot...

So last week I was reading a story someone posted on WTE about a father that forgot to drop his daughter off at the babysitters, left her in the car in 100 degree temps and when he found her after work she was dead.  I was sick to my stomach reading it thinking about that poor little girl and the grief the father must be experiencing.  I would never be able to forgive my self for something like that. the I was reading it I thought "that will never happen to me".  I am a very attentive parent and my whole world revolves around my little man.  At least that is what I thought...

Yesterday morning I was driving to work as usual.  It is about a 20-30 min drive depending on traffic when all of the sudden I was startled by a 'sigh' in the back seat. I look in the rear view mirror and sure enough Jameson is right there being a good boy playing with his toy and I realize forgot to drop him off at my mother-in-laws!  It didn't get as far as me ever actually leaving him in the car but 'what if'??  

My first reaction was laughter, I giggled thinking 'oops what a silly mistake' it then evolved into a hysterical laugh as I am realizing what was going on and into an all out cry.  I felt mortified and the more I thought about it the more I sobbed.  By the time I got back to my mother-in-law's the sobbing had ended and I was in a calm state of shock, not exactly sure how to feel about the incident.  

I had a friend suggest today to always put my purse in the back seat with him so that when I will always have to get in the back seat.  That is one suggestion I will be taking!  As for how I am feeling about the situation now...I still can't believe it happened but I can't dwell on the 'what if's' of life.  I was dealt a very valuable lesson and was lucky that it didn't turn out for the worst.  It was a 'wake up' call not only to never let it happen again but to never think never.

Here we go again...

So as I posted before the cereal thing didn't work out the first go around so we decided to wait until 5 months.  Well this last week I have been having a hard time keeping up with Jameson's demand so I decided once again to try the cereal.  He is doing much better this time and the first night he actually slept all night.  I'm sure it probably wasn't the cereals doing but I got a full 8 hours of sleep.

So onto the sleeping thing...I just don't understand why his sleeping pattern is so erratic.  We had 2 solid months of sleeping from 8pm-5am and ever since his 3 month growth spurt there is no pattern what so ever.  He will go from sleeping all night one night to being up 3 times the next night.  I really don't know what to do or how to fix the problem.  If anyone has any suggestions please chime in.  

We have a big Memorial Day weekend planned.  Headed home to visit my family for 4 days!  I am pretty sure that is the most time I have spent in Hutch since I moved away from that dreadful place.  Everything is just so slow paced and boring...I love the city :)  Hopefully, my dad's dog will be home from the hospital.  Poor little guy!  My dad accidentally ran over him this week and broke his pelvis, right hip and punctured a lung.  The doctor said he is a tough and stubborn little guy to actually have survived.  Sounds just like him :)

Ok...that's all for today except some more adorable pictures of my little man :)

4 Months!

I can't believe my baby boy is already 4 months old!  Those last 2 weeks of my pregnancy lasted what seemed like forever and now time just flies by so fast.  Jameson had his 4 month check up today and the doctor says he is looking great.  He is 12lb 15.6oz (16%) and 24.5 inches (37%)...he is a small little man but so are his mommy and daddy :)

As for my last post about starting cereal...that didn't go so well.  We tried it for a few days and it made no difference what so ever!  It actually seemed like he slept less and of course he pooped more.  I talked to Dr. Blum about it today and he suggested waiting until 5 months for cereal.  So that is the new plan.

Other exciting news is that he rolled over for the first time last night!!  I was watching him on the baby monitor and sure enough he rolled from back to front.  Now I really have to get him weaned from the swaddle! We have been leaving one arm out and he seems to be doing fine...we will try both arms this weekend.

Oh and by the way...congrats to my friends that had their baby's this week...Liz (baby August is adorable) and Jamie (can't wait to see pictures)!  Audrey and Natelie are next!! Lots of Baby's this month :)

Happy Mother's Day on Sunday!!
