OMG, Anna, those pictures are wonderful! That smile of yours with the baby is a perfect photo to advertise for parenthood.
Funny, but my Isabelle had that same gown with the grapes on as her first outfit after birth. Mielle is gorgeous.
So is Kallisti, Lazuli! what breathtaking baby girls. I hope you're both doing well and taking care of those breasts. Drink, drink, drink, drink!
I have two hands at the keyboard for the first time in I don't remember how long.
Reid got sick early in the week, and scared us pretty bad. Not because he seemed sooo sick, because he didn't seem incredibly ill, although he was nursing much much less and clearly unhappy, but he had a fever, which in a 10-day old is a frightening thing. We took him in for blood tests, which showed good counts, but our ped. recommended a shot of antibiotics anyway, since some of the tests take time to come back and you don't really want to chance a bacterial infection in such a young baby. So, we have no idea what was wrong, but the shot cleared it up and he's pretty much back to normal, although his poop is still off-color a bit. My poor lovey got blood drawn from both arms and a shot! But our ped is amazing, and used to be a neonatalogist, and there wasn't a bruise on him. Heck, I almost always get bruises from blood draws, so I was impressed.
He also weighed 4.5oz more on Wed when we brought him in sick, then he had on Sat. I wonder how much he'd have gained if he wasn't sick, and was nursing well, my darling!
So, now I'm over being scared s*itless. But this morning our basement flooded, which was a whole 'nother disaster.
I had stopped bleeding by Sunday, but have started up again in fits over him having been sick, and bailing water with a bucket, etc. so am trying to rest as much as possible, but also the older kids seem to be missing mom. All in all, life is getting in the way of true forum participation.
I HAVE to believe Jen is either having, or has had that baby by now! GO JEN AND SPROUT! (or should I say: COME JEN AND SPROUT!?)
