i am thankful

well, it's been two weeks and two days since we brought home another little mister.  graham has been adjusting well to life at the white house.  he eats well, sleeps well, and poops well. what else could i ask for??  i am truly thankful.

our sweet harrison came down with two ear infections and strep throat.  the symptoms of which appeared the night before thanksgiving.  needless to say, we have been running on VERY little sleep around here.  and thanksgiving was not celebrated until friday evening when jer's mom brought leftovers...which jeremy & i ate while standing up in the kitchen.  still, i am very thankful.

to make matters worse, harrison refuses to take his antibiotic.  we had to go to urgent care yesterday (after spending the previous day at the doctor's office...two days at kaiser permanente with two kids is enough to push new mom over the edge.) and he got a shot in each leg.  we picked up a different prescription - chewables instead of liquid - which, so far, harrison still won't eat.  i've only tried crushing and hiding it in a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.  i'm going to give him two more tries - in pudding and in yogurt.  if he still won't eat it he's going to have to have shots every day for a week.  poor kid.  yet, i am so thankful. 

we've hardly taken any pictures of graham.  my mommy guilt is kicking in big time over that one.  and i have not had time to upload the few that we have taken.  some day soon, hopefully.  i can say that he is such a precious boy and i am deeply in love with him already.  my friend kipplyn told me that "love multiples".  boy, she is SO right.  my heart is so full.
