Wow, so I'm really horrible at keeping up.
My second son was born February 27, 2008 at 6:36 PM. Gabriel Koren Palizzi. He weighed 8 lbs 3 oz at birth, and was 20 1/4 inches tall. The labor was pretty easy but got intense at the end. I'll spare you the details. He's now almost 2 months old. On Monday, the 28th, he will have to have surgery. He has a right inguinal hernia. They will fix him right up. I'm nervous, to say the least about him having surgery. He's sooo tiny still, to me at least. He had his 2 month appointment today, and was up to 10 lbs 14.75 oz. We had a spell of jaundice, as well as a feeding issue at the beginning, so at one month he was only 8 lbs 5 oz! So quite a jump in a month.
Julian is doing swell. He is such a joy and a funny boy. He likes to sing and play musical instruments, and just make us laugh. He's very high energy, and so hilarious. He LOVES his little brother, but only wants to love him when nobody's looking. Typical boy, right?
We are getting as prepared as possible for the move. We may have found a place to live. It's a 3 bedroom town house, but it's only one story, and it's only $700/month! Such a steal. It is in West Des Moines. I still can not believe I am moving halfway across the country! It is such a daunting thought! I am so proud of my husband though. Well I gotta get to vacuuming, I will attempt to be better at keeping this blog updated. Here are some pictures of the boys.
