Special Thank You:

I'd like to send a special thank you to everyone for gifts received.  Joseph has so far received gifts such as diapers, clothing, baby tub, Walmart gift card, receiving blankets, gift certificate toward Crib4Life, and more.  Everyone's gifts are greatly appreciated, and much needed.  Thank you SOOO much.

Update on Joseph Daniel:

We got to come home from the hospital today.  Everything is going great.  Joseph passed all his screening tests with flying colors.  He got his circumcision yesterday, and had no problems whatsoever, not even cranky.  I'm so proud of him.

He took to his bassinet right away and loves it.  The bassinet he's currently sleeping in, is the same wicker bassinet that Cheyenne used as a newborn, over eight years ago.

He likes pacifiers and took to the breast feeding right away.  He got to go on his very first ever shopping trip to Winn-Dixie for mommy's prescriptions and various other baby items.  He got to ride home with his mommy, grandma, grandpa, Cody, Dominique & Cheyenne.  His first trip in a vehicle went very well and he slept most of the way.

When we got home, he was greeted by the neighbors Michelle, Rafael, Cheyenne & Ty.  A little later, he was visited by La-La and Carlos, the new kids down the street.  He got tons of hugs and googles, and he loved every minute of it. 

He also got to meet the zoo when he got home.  He met the doggies Cujo and Garo and met the kitties (all 8 of them!).  One kitten in particular, the one I call Broken Turtle (or glue-stick [cause he's always practically attached to me like glue]) took to Joey right away.  He even climbed into the bassinet with Joey and laid down and cuddled with him.  I had to take him out, just in case he decided to play with Joey's feet squirming around.  He didn't like that.  He wanted to stay with the baby, but I was too afraid he might accidentally scratch him.

All in all, little Joey had a great first day home. 

Many firsts today:  Shopping, car ride, non-family visitors, his first contact with the furries (the animals, lol), and his introduction to "home-sweet-home". 

Update on Mommii (me, Carol):

I'm doing pretty good.  Still in a good amount of pain, but it's expected after a c-section.  Feels like I've been a round with Mike Tyson punching me in the belly.  lol. 

I was prescribed iron pills because I have iron deficient anemia.  Between the iron pills, the pain medication (percocet), and the anesthesia, I'm a bit constipated...  (I know, TMI)...  The incision is doing VERY well.  It occasionally stings a bit here and there when I first stand up, but otherwise not too bad.  I do have quite a bit of swelling from head to toe.  I'm told that should start going away soon.  I'm hardly bleeding at all, which is a GREAT thing.  They did some type of procedure where they sort of scrape the uterus to remove as much of the yucky's as possible, therefore causing much less bleeding than letting it go naturally.  I remember after having Cheyenne (8 years ago) I bled like a stuffed pig for 10 weeks.  That sucked really bad, so this is a welcome thing.

I think it's gonna take a while to get all the stickyness off, left over from the bandages and bandaids, etc.  I feel like a pin cushion with all the pokes I got from the needles and the IV, etc.  Speaking of IV, they had to stick me three times to get it right and those damn things hurt like hell!!!  First they tried my left wrist..  no go.  Then my right wrist, no go...  Then they got another nurse to do it, and she did it in my forearm, and I barely felt it.  I don't know why they just didn't start there in the first place.

Oh yeah, my milk started coming in today, too.  So far it's not painful.  What is cool about it is that before I got pregnant, I was a 36D.  During the pregnancy, I went up to a 36DD.  Now, after milk has started coming in, I'm a 38DDD.  Seems like I get bigger (and stay bigger) after each pregnancy.  I'm not sure if that's normal or not, never looked into it.  The thing is, since I already have back problems (my spondylolisthesis, or slipped vertebrae), I don't think I need 'em any bigger.  lol.  But, I suppose there are some advantages to that situation. 

One last thing...  For our homecoming gift, Dominique cooked a special dinner for the whole family.  All by herself (she's only 11), she made a crock-pot roast, potatoes, baby carrots & onions, and stuffing.  I'm telling you, it was SOOOOO delicious, it's like the taste buds are having a party in your mouth.  If I didn't know better, I'd think that girl is gonna grow up to be a master chef some day.  She uses her own recipes (like I taught her to do) and can make even the simplest of dishes taste like they are cooked by the masters.  With her A.D.D., she can't walk from one side of the house to the other without forgetting what she was going for, but she can cook like she's the master chef of the Taj Mahal.

Now that I've talked your ear off, I'll update as things happen with Joey and the other kids.
