Cindy, I'm very sorry to hear about your mother, my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
Life with 4 kids is not as bad as I thought it would be
Lyla is a sweet baby and I'm madly in love with her! I have a hyper-lactation and if I don't pump before I feed her she is miserable, so it's been a little time consuming, but if it makes her less gassy and miserable I will do it as long as I need.she also stays fuller longer when I pump first, so that's good. My 2 year old is having some potty accidents and peeing in her panties more than she was, but that seems to be the only problem she is having, she is not jealous at all and is so in love with her baby sister. My older boys (6 and 9) are wonderful as well, they are a huge help!
I'm still having a tiny bit of bleeding, just enough to need a panty liner...and not every day, I'm ready for that to stop. I am in awe of you gals who are back in regular clothes, or back to pre-preggo weight
. I was 157 when I delivered and now maybe 132... I need to get back to about 115 so I have a ways to go (I'm only 5 feet tall). We just got some tax money back so hopefully I will be able to buy my sit and stand stroller soon so I can start going on walks with the girls...hopefully I can drop some weight then.
I have days where I'm very overwhelmed and super grumpy and annoyed with everyone in my house and other days where I'm on cloud nine....I'm ready for the hormones to even out! We are visiting my IL's right now and they annoy me (especially my MIL) and I'm sooooo ready to go home tomorrow!
Oh, Lyla weighed 7 lbs 13 oz at birth, 7 lbs 8 oz when we went home from the hospital and 9 lbs 3 oz at 2 weeks, so she's eating well
