Well... It's been a heck of a week.
After the day jobs, we went up to my sister's to butcher a deer. Yes. We did. And I don't want to hear it. It was legally hunted and it was given to us by the hunter. It will be eaten. My sister and brother-in-law have all of the equipment needed to process, so we headed up there to take care of everything. Their kitchen looked like a massacre. We were finishing up when we got the call from K1 that they needed us for baby time. We hurried through as much as the clean up as we could before we had to go, leaving my sister and brother-in-law with a huge mess and all of the meat to freeze. They weren't upset at all and sent us on our way.
Got home and received Mr. B. He was wound up and not ready for bed at all. We let him stay up and jabber away. K1 and J went to the hospital and were sent home again. They were home for less than 15 minutes before going back again. Little Mr B was born 15 minutes after they arrived back in the early hours of the morning of Tuesday.
What kind of crap is that? I can't help but feel that their care was severely mismanaged. But in the end, we now have a beautiful, healthy new grandson. He was born early Tuesday morning, weighing in at 6# 9oz and 19 3/4" long.
That Man and I were off for baby time. All of us slept in. Like crazy slept in. Saw the texts about little Mr. B way later than we should have! We did go to bed super late, but still. Did some alerting of the birth, made breakfast, and headed to the hospital.
Mr. B was amazingly cute with his new brother. He was propped up on the end of the bed holding him and didn't want anyone else to hold his baby. Pappy finally got to hold him, and I got to for a few minutes while B re-positioned himself and did some things. We left so everyone could get some sleep and took big Mr. B to McD's for lunch. The kid is an eating machine. Just saying. Stopped at the store for dinner (should have brought some of that meat home!). That Man made banging spaghetti sauce over penne pasta. I took a quick nap and then we started wondering what today was going to be like since the hospital decided to keep them until tomorrow. We hadn't planned for that. I couldn't take another full day off and neither could That Man.
We worked it out. That Man took Mr. B into work with him and I used my last sick hours to leave early and pick him up. Mr. B and I went to see baby brother and stayed until right before rush hour traffic. Still with the cuteness and not wanting anyone else to hold brother. Though I did hold little man for quite a while. He's so cute. His bruising is almost gone. He looks so much like big brother. I think he's going to be a red head, too.
Mr. B is super homesick and super confused. We talked a lot and did a lot of reassuring and praising. He doesn't understand what's going on at all. All he knows is that he wants to be home and wants to be with his family. It's been super crazy with all of the false alarms and he's just tired. He was super, super tired tonight. We put him to bed an hour and a half earlier than his normal bedtime and he was asleep within seconds
Tomorrow That Man will take Mr. B into work again, but his parents will pick him up on their way home. They are working on getting out of there as soon as possible, so hopefully it won't be too long.
We have one night of silence and then on Friday, we have Mr. B and K5 for shopping frivolity. Looking forward to that.
K4 will be finished with her first semester of college on Friday. She's dying to be done and ready for the break. That went super fast!
K2 is due on Saturday! We'll wait for that! She's usually pretty true to her due dates, so...
I guess next we go into Christmas mode! I did decorate the piano yesterday. That's something, right?
That is all!
