Oh, life with a newborn leaves little time for anything other than life with a newborn.
My online time has been mostly via the Kindle Fire. I’ve found Facebook works pretty well on it. Blog reading seems more onerous. So, I’m re-connecting with all sorts of people who don’t blog. Good timing, too, since one person announced a pregnancy. And I feel a bit bad that I don’t FB more often since plenty of those people stay on top of my life, but I don’t know squat about their daily doings. For now, at least, you may find my name attached to the list of those who “like” your posts.
There are 150 pictures on my camera. Right now I’m nursing a baby and typing left handed, so that’s where they’re staying.
Little George was tongue-tied, but the doc got us in that afternoon and clipped him. It did help tremendously with nursing, but hasn’t completely solved the problem. Currently, he’s getting 9 oz daily via a bottle (formula or pumped milk), and he’s barely gaining the minimum 1/2 oz per day and he’s hungry all.the.time. I went to see a lactation consultant and felt she wasn’t telling me anything I didn’t already know. I tried to get her advice on how to get from where I am now (9 oz supplement daily) to where I want to be (no supplement daily), and she really didn’t have much to say about how to go about that. Should I weigh him every day? Every 3 days? No real answer. How much should he gain in how many days for me to reduce the supplement by how much? Nothing.
So, I plan to weigh him every 4 days. He needs to gain at least 2 oz. Less than that and I up the supplement. More than that, and I don’t know. I guess it depends on how much more than that.
Bill has been working hard and the house looks great. Today he tackled the garage and you can now walk through it. The weight bench is out there and needs to be assembled, and there is a stack of boxes awaiting the next recycle pick-up, but other than that, the garage is done. And if the garage is done, that means most of the inside is done too. There are pockets of not-done-ness…but not too many. We haven’t hung pictures or curtains, and some areas are not as organized as we’d like. But it’s definitely homey.
That’s all I have time for – the baby is asleep, and I must go to bed too.
