Who are you Jonah Robert?

  • Two weeks ago yesterday you had your second open heart surgery.
  • You're getting really big.  We wish we knew exactly your weight, but you've out grown a lot of your clothes.
  • You are starting to really like playing with your toys, grabbing and bringing them to your mouth.
  • Speaking of your mouth, you can't keep your hands out of there.  At least that distracts your fingers from pulling at your NG tube.
  • The last couple days you've started to show signs you can be a happy baby again.  Hopefully the headaches are wearing off.
  • You love being swaddled tight.
  • You love the pacifier.
  • You love to be held, bounced and patted on the butt.
  • You hate the bottle.  We're seriously considering going to Graz, Austria to take you to a special tube weaning clinic, but we're praying you'll be more interested in the bottle now that you're feeling better after surgery.
  • You hate the bath, but boy, sometimes you sleep the best afterwards.
  • Sometimes the changing table might as well be a bed of hot coals.
  • It seems like every time Daddy changes your diaper, you like to pee on everything during the 20 second window when you're without a diaper.
  • At first you don't like the car seat, but once the car is moving you change your 'tude.
  • You're always better behaved when we leave the house.
  • You're taking the following medicines daily: Calcitriol, Enalapril, Lasix and Lansoprazole, along with Tylenol and a multi-vitamin.  In some ways it's a good thing you still have the NG tube, because there's probably not much chance you would take them orally.
  • Sometimes you sleep through the night (10pm - 6am), but other times you can't sleep longer than 2 hours at a time.
  • You don't throw up anymore.  You haven't puked since before the Glenn.
  • You like to party. Last night you didn't go to bed until midnight.
  • When you smile you stick our your tongue and your eyes just light up.
  • You might give Conan O'Brien a run for his money with your hair like a tidal wave.
