I suck. I know I do. How many times have we heard this? LOL
I keep procrastionating writing a post b/c I need to do the other half of my birth story…so then I just don’t write anything b/c the other half of my birth story is looooong..
I am just going to give an update and get back to that when I do. 🙂
Oat is 8 weeks old!! OMG. REALLY? Adjusted age is what- 18 days old?
His last weight was 8#5oz- and that was 10 days ago. I think he is pushing 9.5 pounds now. He holds his head up and looks around a lot. He focuses on our faces and will turn his head towards our voices.
Every night Kingman reads him a bedtime story and then we put him down to sleep. I swear he listens to every word. Even if he is crying he will stop and just stare at Kingman. I don’t know if this has anything to do with the fact he read to my belly every (most) night when I was pregnant or just b/c he jsut hears me all day long. IDK- but it is precious.
Breast feeding is going well–ish. I think I have overactive let down b/c Oat pulls off a lot and chokes. Also, manyu times he has pulled of and I have a full force spray- hitting him in his face. It is actually funny in a really mean Mommy way. He is thrashing his head around to get away and it is going up his nose, in his eyes, etc. tee hee. Maybe related- he has reflux. 😦 So bad that his little nose get so congested after he eats and you can see him trying to not throw up. (which he does about once a day)
We are a little happy family and it is fun getting to know this little miracle.
OH- few things I have learned…
1.keep burp cloths (prefold diapers) in every room. At all times. Keep them on had at ALL places you sit regularly.
2. Binkies can make a kid throw up.
3. Cloth diapering is really not that hard.
4. A preemie 4# kid can fart as loud as his dad. Thankfully not as stinky.
5. Nothing is more terrifying than that first night at home.
