Welcome little open your mouth and EAT SOMETHING

He arrived 10/5/11 after an emergent induction.

-Now we are in the midst of the great breastfeeding crash & burn. We have broken out the bottles & I've hooked myself back up to the moo machine q2 hours. Can't even write about it without bawling, gotta love the hormone roller coaster. Will definitely discuss this later when I can see through my tears.

-Thankfully my not-so-little boy has taken to his big brother status without too much fuss....yet. It helps to have doting grandparents around, and daddy home from work for a few days, aunt & uncle & cousins visited this weekend---having more hands than little ones is great. BB (big brother) has had more attention than he knows what to do with & he's loving every second of it. We'll see how it all shakes out in a few weeks when everyone goes home & its just the 4 of us.

Gotta go pump again.

  1. Hey, congratulations!!! I figured that's what your week-long absence meant. Ah the wonders of the breast pump. I remember when I saw one on my ObGyn rotation, and blurted out, "WHAT IS THAT THING???" Fortunately, the patient was a veteran mama, and she just laughed.

    It'll get easier.... but you know that better than I do. Good luck! And keep posting. I need to get educated somehow.
