we had some stress/excitement this week. i ran into a great old friend at new seasons who i hadn't seen/spoken too in years--i was in the parking lot slinging George and i called her name.....and she turned around and had a newborn in her arms! she came over this week to visit and her mom, who is awesome, came along too. we had a great time catching up and hearing each others birth stories...but before they left her mom mentioned that i should have george-e's heart listened too...sometimes his limbs get purple, its kind of freaky. i spent the next day looking for a pediatrician and luck led me to the perfect fit for us--dr. pritchard and her nurse practitioner sue (who once specialized in pediatric cardiology of all things), gave up their lunch break to see us the next day. he looked and sounded great to them, but just to be super-sure she recommened we see the ped cardiologst at OHSU's dornbecher children's hospital--they fit us in right away and we had a good experience there. everyone swooned over mr. handsome and after an EKG they deemed him absolutely perfect. i wish i would have gotten a picture actually, of him getting the EKG, 'cause he sure looked cute with his wool soaker pants with the stickers all over his chest.
the same day all of this was going down, blake had his own excitement--he got to visit the basement of the Portland Art Museum and go through the archives of undisplayed artifacts. like a kid in a candy store! him and their newest assistant curator are gearing up to do an overhaul of the current exhibit. pieces from the Nomad collection will finally get some glory in a big museum...its all very exciting and blake SO deserves this.
so back to the week in pics, in chronological order:
our fabulous midwives--beth, marilyn, and melissa, at our 3 week check-up.
