Welcome to Baby Brother Jeffrey

Well, Alex is finally a big brother. He has waited patiently for 9 months and is just thrilled to death over the arrival of Jeffrey.

Jeffrey weighed in at 10 lbs 4 oz and was 22 inches long. He shocked the operating room when he came out. They called UT while we were still on the table.

He is a little blondie and has the cutest little lips and ears. He never opens his eys so I have no clue what color they are yet. He sleeps and eats, sleeps then eats some more. Alex isn't that impressed.

Dogfood is being the mother hen. Peanut likes him better now that Aunt Lesley covered him in lotion (he likes to lick babies and lotion). Sassy is just wanting to sleep with Mommy again but Dogfood won't let her in the room.

Grandma Susan is being worn out by Alex, but is now enjoying baby Jeffrey since we came home 2 days earlier than expected. I just couldn't stand being alone in the hospital. It is way better to be home and comfortable. Aunt Lesley surprised us Friday night when we finally got home from the hospital. She wasn't supposed to come until a few weeks from now. She just can't resist babies!

Daddy and Alex went to the bar today to watch the Pitt game. Jeffrey and I stayed home and spent some quiet time together. Grandma and Aunt Lesley met Daddy and Alex at the bar to have lunch and bring Alex home. Pitt won, so it was a good day in our house.

That is it for now, I will try to post more often and keep you all up to date on the Guazzo Family Chronicles.

Baby Update

We are scheduled for the 19th at 10:30 am, unless he decides to come earlier on his own. Grandma Susan is coming down this week to help us keep Alex occupied while I rest for the last 8 days. Well, that is it for now...not much else going on these days.


ITCHY & Bitchy

Some of you may have heard about my new itching symptoms. The doctor took blood last week to test for Cholestasis. This is a relatively rare syndrome that results when the flow of bile from the liver is impaired. Bile is a fluid secreted by the liver that passes, via the bile duct, into the intestine where it is essential for the digestion of fats. The many causes of cholestasis produce different symptoms. I only have the itching so far!

FUN FUN FUN....the only cure is delivering baby early.

So with that said, we may have baby earlier than expected. I should know by Tuesday if they are going to want me in there early.
This will be a week to week thing. Every Friday they will be testing the blood to see if it is elevated and then deciding on Monday what to do. I am still scheduled for Oct 19th so it is a waiting game now!

Wish us luck.

3 Good Arguments

There were 3 good arguments that Jesus could have been Black:

1. He called everyone "brother"
2. He liked Gospel
3. He couldn't get a fair trial.

But then there were 3 equally good arguments that Jesus was Jewish:
1. He went into His Fathers business.
2. He lived at home until he was 33.
3. He was sure his Mother was a virgin and his mother was sure he was God.

But then there were 3 equally good arguments that Jesus could have been
1. He talked with his hands.
2. He had wine with every meal.
3. He used olive oil.

But then there were 3 equally good arguments that Jesus could have been a
1. He never cut his hair.
2. He walked around barefoot all the time.
3. He started a new religion.

But then there were 3 equally good arguments that Jesus could have been
1. He never got married.
2. He was always telling stories.
3. He loved green pastures.

But the most compelling evidence of all - 3 proofs that Jesus could have
been a woman:
1. He fed a crowd at a moment's notice when there was no food.
2. He kept trying to get a message across to a bunch of men who just didn't
get it.
3 And even when he was dead, He had to get up because there was more work
to do.
