" 15When the angels had left them and gone into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, "Let's go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about."
16So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby, who was lying in the manger. 17When they had seen him, they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child, 18and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them. 19But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart. 20The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things they had heard and seen, which were just as they had been told."
Do we share that Good News with as much enthusiasm and conviction as the shepherds?
Salvation will always be the best gift that Jeff and I have received, but here's the next best:
In case you are wondering what his shirt says:
And here's what a 15 pound 11 week old looks like:

He seems to do better in the early morning, late evening, and over night feedings. But during the late morning/afternoon/early evening sometimes even being presented with the breast makes him cry. Not just cry; wail.
We see the doctor again on Tuesday. Hopefully his ear infection is gone so we only have to push one medication on him. Unfortunately, it's the one that tastes awful. I plan to ask the doctor about some things that other mothers with GER babies have suggested (I'm a member of a GER online community: momswearingpuke.com) like giving an ounce of Maalox before he nurses. There has to be something I can do to make him more comfortable. I've been giving him Tylenol a few times a day, but even that doesn't seem to help.

Whew! Got the questions! Hooray for the Book of Church Order!
Then, the water poured into Jude's eye. Here's the instant right before that happened. It took everything in me not to jump in and brush it off, but all Jude said was, "Eeh, eeh," and continued looking around the room.
Ready for his close up!
And, here is Jenn's little girl. We've already prearranged the marriage. Expect a wedding invitation in a couple of decades:-)
And I just loved this photo.

Jude slept through the whole thing, even when the firetrucks came by running sirens and blowing their horns! Slept through the LHS marching band and ROTC. Slept through the hot rods driving by revving their engines. The minute we walked into Subway to get dinner, he woke up. Guess it was too quiet!
It was 29 degrees, so here is what he wore:
He was the warmest one of us all to say the least!
Also, I finally got some photos of him smiling (sort of):
Shortly after these were taken, Jeff took this photo:
Guess he had a big day!

So, it's round two of antibiotics and starting on an H2 blocker for the reflux. Hopefully it works. I'd like for him to start getting consistent sleep at night (because I know I want some!) and the reflux keeps him from doing so.
Do you realize that my son has gained seven pounds in less than two months?

On the other hand, this girl has more talent in her little toe at 8 years old that I have had in my whole 29 3/4 years! But yo uhave to click on the link to go to youtube to view it because the embedding was disabled for her stuff. I guess a safety precaution since she is only 8.
