Another early morning at Starbucks with my bug. Definitely still babymooning with my guy. <3

The portion of Annie’s reading pile that lives on her bed. There are smaller ones in various locations around the house.

Enjoying a break at Starbucks instead of taking a walk. Needed this. (And I *did* walk here… that counts, right?)

Asher update

Asher is one month old today.  <3 I’m going to start posting these here for people not on FB. We’re currently sitting at Seattle Children’s where Ash is getting a double dose platelets from two different donors (more on that in a bit). Talked with the amazing doc who’s in charge of Asher’s care (I seriously cannot say enough about how amazing he is, between his 37 years of practice and research and his amazing bedside manner and he gave us some updates. The tests from the blood center came back. They’d tested both Colin’s and my blood; can’t remember why Colin’s, but mine was to see if his body was producing antibodies to kill off an infection in my residual blood left in his body. This is the most common reason that newborns have for the type of platelet issues we’re seeing in Ash. Unfortunately, that isn’t the case here, which leaves us looking for other reasons. What they’re thinking now is that there’s one very specific category of cell that Asher’s bone marrow isn’t making. For now, the process is to watch and wait to see if his body will kick it into gear, and do transfusions as necessary. If he hasn’t gotten it up to speed by about three months old, they’ll likely do a bone marrow biopsy to look more intensely at what might be going on. On the positive side, he’s 100% healthy other than the platelet thing, so they were able to rule out a lot of scary stuff. So in a nutshell, we’re watching and waiting over the course of the next two months, and we’ll go from there. Thank you again and again for your thoughts and prayers; they’re definitely felt and appreciated.

Three kids and not a sleep gene between them. Hence the reason I’m constantly taking pictures of my kids sleeping.

He may not like what they do to him here, but as long as he’s in his sling, he has his happy place. <3
