Sorry I have been MIA for awhile. I have had a difficult time getting in the groove of having a 3 yr old and baby, but things are finally settling down a bit and I think I am kind of getting the hang of this! It has been crazy though with my DD turning 3 and birthday parties and all that good stuff! Plus my best friend got engaged and is getting married this August and I am the matron of honor so lots of crazy going to be happening this year! At least we have a vacation planned the week after her wedding (which will be much needed I am sure!)
So I had my 6 week appointment (my last one) with my Midwife and I have to say I almost cried. I really enjoyed my appointments and just chatting with her. But what made it worse is that she told me that there is a good chance she will be moving to Texas (from Ohio) in June. I know it is a little soon, but it will make me so sad if I have to try to find a new Midwife for the next one (if we are blessed enough to have more! ) I told her that for selfish reasons I hope they are able to stay!!
Anyway, Atlas is doing great and has been gaining around a half pound or so a week so my Midwife said he is doing fine with just breast feeding. He has finally started sleeping other places than just in my arms so I have been able to get much more done and am getting more sleep. My DD, Gloria, still loves him and is a surprisingly good helper with him. He smiles all the time and just melts my heart. He has been a little more fussy than at first but nothing too bad. I just love kissing his chubby cheeks!
I thought about starting another thread with a list of all the mamas screen names, baby's name, birthday and measurements. Would anyone be interested in me doing this so that there is a condensed list? What do you think?? Or anything else I can add?
