good luck with ILs!
I really like the second and third dresses, and particularly the third dress. those are really lovely.
i'm having a friend make as suit for the baby for my sister's wedding in Feb. in the end, both ryan and i are in the wedding, and my sister picked a nice brown fabric and what not. quite nice really.
anyway, i figured i could just order extra fabric and then have my friend make an outfit for him that matches what ryan and i are wearing, since we're both in the wedding.
and, my dress has to be nursing friendly, too. and, my sister fore-warned the priest that i would, in fact, feed the baby in the church if needed. he seemed ok with that, she said.
so, that should be fun.
Cosleeping is the nicest thign ever, but i'm turning into a sandwich. that baby cuddles close, and then ryan cuddles close, and there i am in the middle trying not to be smooshed or smoosh anyone. LOL
so, i've moved over a bit to give ryan more space, which leads him to cuddling closer, and then the baby snuggles in really close. and sometimes, we just do "tummy-tummy" (skin to skin) with me on my back. it's nice, actually.
nursing right now is interesting. he nurses every 4th hr, for an hr or more. it kinda freaks me out, as he's supposed to go every 3rd hr, right?
so, anyway, we wake him every 3rd at night, and he'll feed for about 30-45 minutes, but then today, there was a 4 hr break between feedings (beginning to beginning) and the feeding lasted 2 hrs and 15 mintues (he did fall asleep occassionally and i had to wake him--but god forbid i take him from the breast.
in fact, now he's eaching every third--he's making hungry face again. he's so cute. so, i'll feed him again, and hopefully we'll get back on that 45 minute nursing every 3rd hr routine again!
