The nights have been going well. But her days? Well, yesterday at least she was awake all day long. And angry. I have a feeling something wasn't right inside the tummy. Finally last night there was a good explosion and she was much happier. Today she seems to be a bit sleepier. Sometimes.
Today is "learning to eat" day. Her two-week doctor's appointment showed that she gained plenty of weight over the last week so we know she's been getting enough, now I just want to teach her to eat more, um, naturally. Patience, lots of advice from friends and La Leche and lots of snuggle time and I'm hoping we'll make some progress today.
Last night we had friends bring us dinner. People always ask what we'd like and on Sunday when they asked, Andy had answered jokingly, "filet mignon and creme brulee." Well, that's what we had for dinner last night!
Fabulous juicy steaks, lobster tail, green beans & mashed potatoes with creme brulee ice cream for dessert! We have gotten so many amazing dinners and have been so blessed by people taking care of us it's been fantastic.
I seem to have a hard time remembering what day it is. I usually have to look at the date on my watch or the calendar several times a day. Yesterday we got out of the house and did a little shopping and also picked up a glider that a friend gave to us. We have already decided that rocking makes such a difference in the night feedings. She goes back to sleep much easier.
Also!? Our pack & play has a music & vibrating element to it for soothing that I discovered also fits perfectly on the bassinet. Randall officially has a snooze button now. At least at night.
In grownup news, our kitchen is at a standstill. Our tiler has several other jobs ahead of us so the back splash is just bare drywall and leftover chunks of old tile. Maybe for Valentine's my kitchen will get finished? Ah well, it's amazing what you get used to.
