The First Weeks

This was a wonderful and crazy month! We had Beau, landed ourselves back in the hospital because he lost too much weight, Paige's mom came to stay with us for a few weeks, my sister came, and at the end of the month, my parents came. Also, Paige had his first game in Texas and they lost. It was a big month for us. When we brought Beau home for good things were kind of crazy! I could not have done it without the help of Sarah and Paige's mom. Sarah came out here right away and had our house baby proofed in no time! She set up the changing table, bought our cradle and set it up, cleaned and got us all the things we would need seeing as we had NOTHING ready because we thought I had 6 more weeks! Paige had started camp so he was MIA and I had a C-section and was still in some pain, not supposed to do the stairs a lot, and I couldn't drive. Paige's mom did SO much! For the whole first 2 weeks we were home we had to take Beau to get his weight checked every day. Finally, when he was 3 weeks old, he made it back to his birth weight. On another note, at the end of August my parents came to visit! I was so happy to finally see them and they finally got to meet Beau. When they were here, we took Beau to get some newborn pictures taken. They turned out really cute. The rest of the time we just hung out at the house. Mom was Beau's personal baby holder and my dad was my personal handyman! Next time we move, they are coming ASAP. They got us all organized and I was really sad to see them go.
