Well we are home now. Everyone is trying to adjust. Jack is trying to get used to two noisy siblings who are overly excited about their brother. Sleeping is going well for all. He is keeping his two naps durring the day and only waking twice a night for diaper and bottle. He cried a bit for Omma last night but John made the mistake of going into his room instead of me. I start the night sleeping in my bed to get in a good two to three hours then I finish the night in his room. Well I didn't wake up when he cried last night because John was still watching TV and didn't hear him, so John decided to be helpful and try the night bottle himself. Well Jack didn't take lightly to a shirtless dad wearing glasses coming to comfort him when he was expecting Mom. We won't be doing that anymore. It took him quite a while to calm down and I heard a few cries for Omma after that scare. Poor little guy. He still has a stuffy nose and we are using the medicine they gave us in Korea to treat it still at this point. We will most likely head to the doctor this week. His bowels are still frequent and he is poopin 4 or 5 times a day, but they are not dirreah like before so we still consider this an improvement. He hates wet and dirty diapers. He can not sit still and sqirms all over if he is wet or messy and will not take a bottle in a wet diaper. He wants to be changed right away even if only a tiny bit wet. But becomes a happy boy again right after.
We are all adjusting to eachother. We could not be happer with the little guy we have. He is so happy!! I feel a bit sad he is so overwelmed by brother and sister, but he was also excited to see them this moring and gave them both hugs! We ventured out to Church this morning and he sat really well, but he was more than ready to come home after church when all the people wanted to meet him. He cried in the carseat on the way home and calmed down after daddy put him in the carrier for a while. He needed some carry time and then drifted off to sleep relaxed.
Life with 3 children is a bit harder than with 2. We are lucky that Jack is doing so well. It is hard enough to adjust to three without Jack having a hard transition on top of it. We are greatful and blessed by all the prayers. Keep them up! It is working! You know how hard it is to take a picture of two kids ages 2 and 4. Well it is even harder to get a picture of all three. There is always someone who is not in the mood. So here is what we got so far. I am sure when we all have time to calm down a bit we will get some better shots.
