Jordan's 2 week update

Today Jordan had his 2 week old checkup with the doctor.

He has already grown to 8 lbs 6 ozs (33%), and 21 inches (55%). The doctor is very happy with his weight gain. He is such a fantastic baby, and I just love spending time at home with him and Lynnea.

Here are some more pictures...isn't he so handsome!

Lizzie is so brave! The day before she got her tonsils out, she had to have blood drawn for lab work. She held very still, and didn't cry or anything! She just said "Ouch, that hurt," then watched the vial fill up! I was pretty impressed!
I took this will my cell phone, thus the poor quality. Here she is just before we parted ways....her to the OR, me to the lobby. The procedure only took about 25 minutes, then I sat with her in recovery for about an hour. In case you were curious, they have little kids breathe into a mask to put them out, then they insert and IV and all that when they are out. She did NOT like waking up with an IV in her arm. The people were very nice. They even put a bracelet on bear (around his middle) just like Lizzie's on her ankle. She even was allowed to take bear to the OR! So, he saw the whole thing!

Recovering on the couch that same day. Poor little thing. Her ears hurt, her throat hurt, and her voice was very hoarse! A package from Grandma Lambourne was just the thing to lift her spirits, though. She loved doing the projects- they really helped get her mind off her pain! She's also enjoying the ice cream and popsicle perks . She's doing a lot better already today, she's up and playing, and only mentioned twice today that her throat hurt. Side note- see the little flower bouquet in her cup? I put these together for her and she's been carrying them from room to room, to where ever she plans on staying awhile. How cute is that?
