Miss Bella is 5 weeks old, and is getting to be quite a little person.
She now fits beautifully into her newborn sized diaper covers, so we're exclusively using cloth at home about 50% of the time (I can't find the bulk of my infant sized prefolds and can't afford to buy more right now
). When we run out of paper diapers, I'm not buying any more; I guess I'll just put some of BooBah's under her buns while we do laundry.
I'm working on EC with her, but that's very difficult with two other children around, especially when those children want to be involved in every aspect of life with their baby sister.
Bella weighed 7 lbs, 9.5 oz on Monday, so she's gained quite a bit of weight. I was feeling like she was really big, until I went to a LLL meeting on Wednesday. Not only was everyone telling me how tiny she was for a 1 month old, but there was another baby there only a week older who weighed more than 13 pounds.
: He had been 10 pounds at birth, but still, he looked like he was easily the size of two Bellas.
BooBah has impetigo, which is gross and icky. It's all I can do to keep her from giving it to Bella.
BeanBean is running a fever and complaining of general malaise; I haven't got a clue as to what's wrong with him, he just keeps telling me that he has a headache and "I don't feel good."
He's definately running a fever today, though. Whatever it is, I hope it burns out quickly. Bella felt a bit warm to me, but I haven't taken her temperature because I don't want to know.
: Isn't that awful?!
