Party of Five: Week 2

We have had a busy two weeks since Colin joined us. The "high"lights include:

  • One broken pipe and flooded basement (followed by my kind brother-in-law spending a day pumping gallon after gallon of water out, one emergency call to the plumber, one wall of the basement knocked out, and one big mess to clean up -- the contractors get going next Monday).
  • One natural gas leak and evacuation narrowly avoided (resulting in more holes in my basement ceiling - see note about contractors above).
  • One big brother with an ear infection.
  • One jaundice baby requiring numerous trips to the doctor and Children's Memorial Hospital (this situation is hopefully resolving in the next day or so).
Luckily, we have had a ton (and I mean a ton) of help from our families -- without which I would have been reduced to tears on more than one occasion. Thank goodness for those helpers when you really need them.

I am confident that the next two weeks of Colin's life will be more peaceful for all of us.

Happy weekend to you all.

Yes, having the help is a good thing. But, the transition gets much easier from this me!
