thanks! your Layla is a cutie! She looks like she's ready to tell you something!
um I just hold him, like we are nursing (which usually then leads to nursing, haha!). Shay also showers with us and now that he can hold his head up and is so big he just gets held up on a shoulder or whichever way is comfortable. Shay also sits in the tub by the drain and plays with bottles and bath toys now too!
We don't have a sling for the shower but have talked about it, mostly for the pool. We were talking about a fishnet type of material or something of the such. And then I imagine we would just tie it in a square knot like we do with our other slings.
I have a water sling that I used almost exclusively for the shower with DS. I used in a pool maybe twice, but for a shower when it was the only way to get one, it was great. The one I have is made of Solarveil, which is a netting type fabric that has an SPF rating, so it's meant for outside use, but it also doesn't hold onto water, which is perfect for the shower.
Anyway - way to digress. I'm here to share pics of our little arrival.
This is on the scale as they were weighing her, just a few minutes old. Her back half is still covered in blood, vernix and meconium, and her hands were still grey from the difficult birth.
I have NO IDEA where she got that full head of dark hair.
This is as we were settling into our recovery room, before we went to sleep, so about 3 hours old here.
Our son Milo meets his baby brother for the first time. Happy to report that he is completely in love with his brother!
Can't believe Zachary is a week old today! Last week at this time, I was taking my second course of cohosh tincture and about to head out to my acupuncture appointment. Little did I know that 12 hours later, I'd be about to give birth. If Z had held on for another 64 minutes, he would have shared a birthday with Milo, but there was no stopping this baby once he decided to come out!
