Taking our baby home

It was so exciting to bring our baby home. We were anxious to see how Susan would like him. Of course she adored him but he didn't seem too fond of her, he could have done without all the kissing. He was a cute baby but I couldn't do anything with that hair, it stood straight up all over his head. I could have gotten the goo that Ellen used on the Jensen hair to glue it down but it didn't seem like a good thing to do to a baby. Finally at six weeks Mo took him to the barber for a haircut. He was the youngest customer the barber had ever had. After that Mo just snipt it off.

From day one he was very active and loved people, he still does to this day. He loved his sister and laughed at everything she did. He got over that. He liked to drink out of a cup and wouldn't even look at a bottle.

Life seemed to be going well when I got a bad kidney infection and had to go to the hospital.
That was a real problem because Jeff wouldn't take a bottle. I just knew that he would if I wasn't there but he decided to just drink out of cup. I was a basket case just thinking of a baby being weaned at five months. He survived 'm happy to say.

While I was in the hospital for five days, Mo had to run the household, he started to appreciate me after taking care of two babies. One day this little old man, younger than I am now but then thought he was old. He stopped by my room and said,"Bless your heart, my little wife died in that same bed last week." That cheered me up hearing that good news.
