That's what I thought too! She is well hydrated and healthy. She even smiles several times each day. I'm pretty sure she's doing just fine. She's getting bigger and gaining weight and getting longer too. She's already in 3-6 months clothing. And yet the wic people say she's not growing as quickly as they'd like to see. lol. And here I thought she was growing like a weed! Must be something wrong with them. My mom did say that me and my sisters never "grew" up to wic's standards either. But she did say that we looked healthy enough to them, so they didn't complain too much. lol.

My breats have just increased their capacity. Sara started sttn last week and I'd either have to pump in the middle of the night or immediately after feeding her first thing in the morning. Over the course of the week/weekend, I'm no longer painfully engorged (but I'm definitely full!), and I'm now pumping 5-6 oz. from each breast, compared to around 3 two weeks ago. I'm not sure if this is normal so your mileage may vary...I still leak a lot though, but never during work hours...

The past two nights DS has slept for 8 hours straight. I'm not complaining too much but I wish he'd choose an earlier bed time instead of 2 or 3 a.m. if we can get him to bed at an earlier hour I'd be thrilled, all in due time I suppose.

The last 2 nights Des has slept for at least 8 hours before waking up to eat, then going back to sleep for about 4 more hours. However his chosen sleep time is 2 am!!! I probably shouldn't be complaining too much though, should I
