Oh, what a night...

Well, we had great intentions of making it to church this morning!! I so missed being away last Sunday and was so looking forward to making it back today...

But as Zach said, "Once we were up 5 times before 3am, I didn't think we'd be making it..." If Benjamin was awake, Keaton was asleep. If Keaton was awake (which is RARE anymore...dang jalapeƱos!), Benjamin was asleep! We just could not win last night!

And to top it all - I now have a head cold! Keaton's had a bad cough the past couple of days. I woke up this morning with a sore throat, congestion and his yucky cough...So I'm trying to keep even more hydrated than I already am to nip this in the bud as quickly as possible!

In other interesting news. I went to change Benjamin after a feeding this morning. I didn't turn his room light on, I just changed him by the light of the night light. I thought that I saw his cord stump had fallen off. I was too tired to think too much about it, but when I got back in bed, Zach stirred and I mentioned my finding. He just casually said, "Yeh, it fell off earlier..." ok, then! haha! When I was talking to my mom on the phone earlier today, I mentioned this to her and Zach was sitting near by and he laughed and said, "That stupid thing...it kept falling on the floor..." I wish I could have seen that! I'm excited about this "milestone" for three reasons.

1- We can cloth diaper full time now (his cloth diapers kept rubbing on the cord and I didn't think it looked too comfy, so I only did one or two cloth dipes a day...
2- He can take a REAL bath now!!!!
3- Keaton's took 6 stinkin' weeks to fall off and only then it came off when I took him to the pedi and they put silver nitrate on it (it fell off 24 hours later). When we were at the Lactation Consultants on Wednesday, she mentioned that it looked like it was going to come off soon. I told her about our ordeal with Keaton's cord and she said that whatever they did at UNC they did it right!

Well, both guys are sleeping...I'm going to rest for a bit!

Hang in there, momma. These long nights don't last forever. Unfortunately mommas get sick, too, but as the boys get older that will diminish!
You and Zach are doing a GREAT job!
Miss you!!
