Tough week @ Maison du Binx. Less for Jasper, more for us

Elizabeth has been having a little cough get slowly worse, until it turned into a respiratory infection, which required a mask during feedings or other interactions. Me, my back molar started to hurt on Saturday, and it turned into full-bore full-pain infection on Tuesday night. The drugs I had were old and only gave me a massive headache to go with the full-skull throbbing.

Tuesday night, Elizabeth got a severe migraine, and nobody slept, just feeding/burping the binx and quietly moaning, watching time pass slowly across the ceiling. Depths of hell.

Wednesday, tooth comes out, E’s on ibuprofen and cephalexin, and all’s remarkably better. By Thursday, it’s an early evening walk in the park on the nicest day of the year. Lucky us? Barbara, Elizabeth’s mom, happened to be staying with us and took care of all the binx comforting, etc so we can crawl back to health with some support.

Thanks, nana!

Thank You

Picture o' BinxAfter 16 hours of labor - most of them at home, using the Bradley Method of coaching, we went to the hospital at 6:45am on 5/31. Elizabeth was fully dilated, so after a brief round of tests (and figuring out the cord-blood kit), she starting pushing. 45 minutes later, our new son Jasper Moon Gibbs Drake was born, weighing in @ 7lbs, 7.2oz

Everyone is home sleeping, eating, and inevitably, pooping. Pictures (not of poop)here
