Hello all! It seems I'm one of those bad bloggers that returns home and doesn't find the time to post! Ack!
We've been home for five days and things are slowly improving. The jet lag still lingers...man do NOT underestimate that wicked beast!! :)
Tessa is doing well. We went to the doctor yesterday for a checkup. She weighs 15 lbs. 9 oz and is 27" long. She's quite a bit longer than her last check up at TWCA.
We asked about her head symmetry (it's a bit off, an abnormality on her skull) so I took her for a cat scan today. That was hard, but we got it done. Then the doc ordered blood tests too and we tried to get that but the nurses could NOT find a vein. Poor girl. I had Tessa, Jake and Sara all crying at once. Phew.
Then, on Monday she goes in for an echocardiogram to check on her heart. Seems she has a heart murmur they want to check out. I'm not too worried, as Sara had this too and all was well with her.
Sara is adjusting to being a big sister better than I had anticipated. Of course, she's a bit sad that she's been knocked out of her position as the baby of the family, but who could blame her? Jacob is doing absolutely wonderfully. When she cries, he goes to her and gets her to quiet down for me if I can't get right there. He is sweet, sweet, sweet to her.
Hopefully, one of these days I'll feel confident in my position as a mother of three. Right now, I'm just winging it. :) Luckily, Tessa is very patient with me. She continues to bond very well and definitely knows me. She is sleeping well at night, but her naps could be better...hopefully that will come with time.
I'll try to post pictures next time...I'm fresh out of energy right now!! Thanks for your love and support and this crazy journey to Taiwan...complete with Typhoon Morakot!
