Well Lorelai is 4 weeks old today!!! I honestly can't believe that she has been in our life for 4 weeks! I guess it's actually been longer then that, as Erick pointed out last night, she's really been a part of our lives for 10...almost 11 months, in thought at least. But...having her here and caring for her every need is definitely a bit different then having her inside of me for 9 months.
This week has been better for me.....beginning to feel a bit more normal to have her around. Still challenging as ever...I'm sure my mom is sick of hearing from me twice a day every day with questions about feeding and sleeping and stuffy noses and getting enough stimulation or getting on a routine bla bla bla... :)
I'm thinking about stopping breastfeeding. I know there is a lot of mixed opinions on this...I've already gotten both sides from my mom and my sister-in-law :) I'm gonna stick it out for 2 more weeks ( my 6 week checkup) and see if I still feel the way I do now but...we'll see I guess!
So here are some pics from yesterday.... a few of her trying to suck her thumb, some in her chair and a few of her stretching :)
Only your soul can hear what's in my heart
