Updates

Well, yes I know many of you are laughing in secret that I haven't kept up on blogging, but I'm not ashamed to admit that I haven't kept up on much of anything. After a week of systematically nursing, bottle-feeding, and then pumping in order to bring in my milk and fatten my baby - I am finally getting a little bit of a break. Yesterday we went to Charlotte's two week visit and the doc gave permission to just nurse and forget about all of the other stuff. He thinks her weight is just fine. So, Charlotte and I can now enjoy some time that's not spent obsessing about eating. In fact, we even went to Meijer and Kohl's today! There was only one moment where she started to scream while I was checking out at Meijer. I thought "What do I do now?!" Luckily, she stopped as soon as I scooted her hat up off her eyes.

Thankfully, I had the help of my mom and Brian last week for bottle feeding. But I like the feeling of being able to do this stuff on my own. I feel like a stronger woman when I'm independent.

I'll leave you with a pic of babycakes at 10 days.

Aww she is so adorable. Let me know if you'd like some help! I'll be over in a jiffy that's for sure. I'm glad you ventured out of the house. It gets easier and easier.

Take your time and enjoy her, they grow so fast.

That is awesome!!! You will feel much better now that all you have to do is nurse. I love the pic! Enjoy the time now, the next 6 weeks will fly by!

I only snickered a little...Charlie just keeps getting cuter! I am glad the feeding regimen is getting easier. Things are pretty intensive the first few weeks, but then both you and Charlie will really start to get into a groove.

Hey Ang, and you wondered why I didn't pick up knitting in my spare time, eh? ha ha. Spare time is over rated. I'm glad you took a break from blogging to enjoy those first 2 weeks, but I'm really happy you took a second to send that pic too! She's a beauty :) Glad to hear you're both doing so well. We'd really like to come for a visit... any free weekends in Feb or March?

As long as you keep the photos coming, we'll be happy. I am SO glad that your feeding schedule has lightened up. Congrats on getting out of the house alone so soon!! Did you check out the Kohl's baby clothes deals? Wish I was there to hold her!
