Life is good here. Cruz will be 5 weeks tomorrow- wow! Last week at his 4 week app't he weighed in at 11 pounds 6 ounces- so yes, breast feeding is going well. Although he seems to be having quite a bit of painful gas, which has been a bit of challenge.
Diogo is simply the most gentle and sensitive big brother that anyone could ask for. He tells EVERYONE we meet about his new baby brother- some have heard the news daily.
I am happy and well rested. Like his brother, he sleeps unless he wants to eat. Then its a quick feed and he is right back to sleep.
The only thing that makes me a bit sad...how fast time is going by. I definitely don't feel like I can savor everything as much as I could with my first. And, I definitely don't want this to be my last. But, how can I push for a girl next time- anyone have any tricks?
I can't believe how long it has been since checking this board! I've missed all of you. Pics can be found through the link in my signature.
