Don't be worried --- I miss you guys so much!!
Here's an update.
Timothy Joseph was born 9/13/12
8 lb 14.5 oz 21 inches long (I think) via scheduled c-section. Recovery went great. I'm dealing with 1 issue with him that may require surgery when he is 6 months old but I don't feel comfortable writing the details on it right now. There may have been malpractice or doctor negligence involved. He's perfect, not in any pain, but needs a surgery that is pretty serious and will affect his future greatly if not done. It's related to his man parts.
JT is doing awesome with his new baby brother. He loves him to pieces (sometimes he loves him a little too hard or a little too much). Kisses him constantly, covers him with blankets, gives him his pacifier (of course, some of those I don't allow ;) I'm dealing with the usual temper tantrums and such but I don't think one is related to the other. He's talking a bit more now but still tons of baby babble.
Hurricane Sandy - we got L-U-C-K-Y. My house on the left and right had trees fall on them. There were about a million downed trees all over my neighborhood but we didn't get any. We worried a ton, it was the scariest time of my life. I feared for my boys like I've never felt fear before. We lost power on Monday about 7pm and the winds didn't stop and just got worse as the night went on. All I could picture was one of our huge trees coming down on our bedrooms. Scary sh*t. We just got power back on Monday night. Fortunately, we deal with many power outages in my area (never this long though) so we had a generator and were able to run heat, a few lights, the baby monitor (I can't live without that thing), the toaster oven for waffles for JT in the morning, and charged our phones and dvd player. Oh yeah, fridge too. Life wasn't so bad - in fact I had my Nanny and disabled aunt even staying with us cause they didn't have heat or a generator and it was cold cold cold.
FEMA stopped by to offer us food and water and I felt so fortunate that I didn't need any. The devastation in this state is awful. Jersey shore - gone. Most of Hoboken seems almost beyond repair. So many people I know have been affected and it's the saddest thing ever. I am so lucky.
I miss you all. I seriously have no time to Bump but I think of you all often. If I can I'll put a pic in my siggy so you can see the boys. Halloween was cancelled here but I remember like it was yesterday our last Halloween gift exchange and I hope all is well with everyone. I hope to pop on from time to time to read about you guys and post but who knows when! I give credit to those who can manage their time ;)
