What a week

Where do I begin? It has been a crazy crazy week. Last Friday we had to take Owen to the hospital because of a high fever. To make a long story short, he was diagnosed with a bacterial infection and we were discharged 3 days later. Poor little guy. He seems so be recovering well though.

I've had some type of virus I can't shake but I am on antibiotics and just now starting to maybe feel a little better. Poor Ryan came home from work Monday throwing up but he is recovering as well. We have been a house of sickies - not fun! In celebration of getting better we went on a little outing today to AJ's for lunch and then on a walk and to Barnes & Noble. It was so nice to get some fresh fall air after being cooped up in the hospital and house for so many days.

In other news, Ryan quit his job at Countrywide on Monday. Yay! He has another job lined up to start in early November. He's going to be a research analyst for Aetna (Schaller Anderson).

Owen is doing well. He was very off "schedule" (it was a very very loose schedule) but has since kinda gotten back on which is great because I can start getting sleep again. We introduced a bottle this week. It will be nice to be able to leave on a date night or give him a bottle while at church. As far as growth, he's around 11.5 lbs and 23ish inches. He has more awake periods, can follow things with his eyes, and occasionally gives a smile. He is so darn cute and I'm having so much fun bonding and learning all about him. We celebrate his 5 week birthday tomorrow!

He loves to study the fan

And look out the window

He does not, however, like baths

Also, thanks to all who replied to my post about tummy sleeping. I tried it for his daytime naps for one day, and while he slept well, I think I'll stick with putting him on his back for now.

Oh Danae, I am so sorry to hear about the hospital! I too have spent a few days in the hospital this month and am truly sympathizing with you! On the other hand, I am way excited to hear about Ryan's new job! Yeah!!!!!
