Six weeks later...

Well, its been six weeks since the birth of Thayden. If all were normal, this is anything but. Living out of a hotel room for the past 2 1/2 weeks has been anything but the best time. Other than watching TV, I'm pretty limited to what I can do. The mornings are nice because I can go out and get a few errands done before Shane has to go to work. Thayden has been a great baby, he really only cries when he has gas, poopy or needs to eat. I couldn't have asked for a better baby and he is such a trooper through all these changes. Shane's company had a bunch of people leave this morning because they were starting school, everyone who was staying, got to stay in the same room; except us! This was okay by me because it was for a good cause, the president of our church and some colleagues would be staying in that part of the hotel! So, while Shane was on a job, I packed up the room and his boss helped me move everything to a new room.
This whole experience is one I hope to look back on and smile, being able to live in a hotel room and learn how to take care of a new born is no easy task. There are many things I could have never believed I would be thinking about or doing. Thayden is such a great baby, all the poopy diapers and crying are all worth it when I see him smile. I can't wait to get back up to school and have a real home again, this semester should be the most memorable yet!
