    Hello Just checking in!

    Advertisements
    Hi ladies!

    I haven't posted much since Belle was born! (As expected, I think!) My mom, sister, and brother-in-law were in town and just left today. I've never had such a hard time saying goodbye to my mom before, so that REALLY sucked! But it's nice to have my house to myself again, I suppose!

    I can't believe how fast the time has flown by since her birth, it is kind of sad to me! DH goes back to work tomorrow, and our packing/moving date is 10 days from today! I am so, so, SO beyond sad to leave this house. I keep telling myself that a house is just a house, but we spent our first 2 years of marriage here and have been through so much in this house... it's really hard to let it go.

    Anywho, Belle is just the sweetest, best thing to happen to us and we couldn't be happier! (or sleepier!) Her cord fell off on Friday, so tomorrow I plan to start her in cloth diapers... even though they look so silly on her tiny little frame! (Pics to come!) Breastfeeding has been a bit rocky due to our having to supplement with formula. She wasn't gaining weight right, but it's looking better now, and my milk's doing better. I've been pumping a LOT, so at the very least she'll get pumped breast milk, but I'm hoping I can nurse her more often now that my family's gone and I can get into my own routine. And, her 2 week appointment is on Tuesday. I seriously feel like we just left the hospital yesterday!

    Anywho, I'm totally rambling and should be sleeping before she wakes up for food! Okay nighty night ladies!

    Glad to hear everything is going pretty well for you. Don't worry about the nursing, I'm sure it will be easier once you get into a good routine!
