Joshua is now 8 days old!
I’m working on his birth story, which will be a series of posts covering the whole 41 1/2 hours of labor. I’m thinking it will take at least 5 posts to cover the whole thing. I’m going to publish it at Our Country Baby, where I also post lots of pictures of Joshua.
We’re working on nursing, and I’m feeling pretty good about it right now. I went from crying about Joshua losing weight before my milk came in, resulting in us going to the doctor’s office four times last week for weigh-ins and him dropping down to 8lbs 10oz. (teeny tiny!!!), to crying because I’m leaking through 5 shirts a day (at least) and his weight went back up to 9lbs 4.5oz. They want him to be at least back to his birth weight of 9lbs 8 oz by his two-week appointment next Friday, and I’m sure he’ll make it.
I’m amazed by how much my belly has shrunk in the last week. Amazed.
We’re sleeping well, with Joshua waking up about 3 times each night to eat and be changed. I’m very happy about that!
Ed is a great dad. He’s totally taken over the diaper changes at night, and he loves to snuggle with Joshua. He’s very focused on taking care of our family and talks about all the fun we’re going to have together in the future.
I’ve totally dropped out of the blogosphere. If I haven’t been reading or commenting on your blog, just know that I miss reading those updates. I’m sure I’ll get back to it in time.
The weather here has been great in the last week, and we’ve been trying to get outside when we can. It’s amazing how fast the day goes by when it’s taken over by feeding and diaper changes. Where does the time go?
I hope you all are doing well! Please leave a comment and let me know what you’ve been up to!
