Life is crazy!

Well, almost two weeks have gone by since Caylee was born. A lot has happened. We've been through jaundice and now we're dealing with a cold. We got a simple cool mist humidifier It's not fancy like an Ebac dehumidifiers, but it seems to be helping. Luckily Caylee didn't get a fever and the cold hasn't affected her eating or sleeping so the doctors are just having us keep our eye on her.

I'm still having a hard time getting her to nurse. She wont nurse at all on one side, and sometimes she'll nurse on the other side. Yesterday was a good nursing day and I got my hopes up thinking we'd be able to take the bottle away soon then today she barely nursed at all. I'm getting sick of pumping and bottle feeding AFTER trying to get her to nurse. It's really quite frustrating. Not to mention I'm pumping about 6 oz every time I pump and Caylee only drinks 2 sometimes 3. So I have an over abundance of milk in the freezer. I don't even know what to do with it, there is no way we'll use it all. Anyone have any ideas? I think it's too late to try to donate it to a milk bank because I'd have to go through the screening process before they'd accept my milk. I think that's how it works anyway. I know it's good for 6 months but with the amount I have already plus each day I put more in there I don't know what to do.

Lexi is VERY whiny and tests us constantly. She's not adjusting very smoothly. Any time one of us is holding the baby she seems to disobey. Especially if I'm feeding Caylee. Other than that she's doing good, her cold seems to be going away, she still has a bit of a runny nose, but nothing bad. Her and Eugene got to go to church today, I was so jealous. Caylee and I are gonna stay home from church for another week then go when she's about 4 weeks old. It will be tough, but best for her.

On an exciting note, I tried on all my pre pregnancy clothes and I fit in about 75% of them. My stomach is still nasty looking and some of my shirts look really bad. I've lost all my weight from Caylee, but I still have about 10-15lbs to lose from my two previous pregnancies. Hopefully I'll be able to work on that over the next few months.

Well, I guess I'll turn in for the night, I've got about an hour before Caylee will want to eat. Did I mention that her eating every 2.5 hours really makes the night interesting. Trying to get her to nurse, then feeding her a bottle then pumping takes about an hour to an hour and a half which leaves me an hour to sleep before the next feeding. Eugene gets up to do one feeding a night which really helps, but since he has to get up and work I hate to ask him to do more.

Anyway, Have a great night!
