Here's our family of three (Harper Looks thrilled to be with us, huh? ha!) We had another good but busy day. I'm afraid I'm getting worse and worse at replying to (and reading) e-mails and you can see my blog post is coming extra late tonight. Now that our little pumpkin is awake and alert and feeding - we are trying to spend as much time with her as we can - plus we had a parenting class today. So if you don't hear from me - I love you and I'll try to get to you as soon as I can - but I am a momma now - and she takes first priority!!! (Can you blame me?)
Harper had a good day! She got all of the tubes out of her belly button. She was weaning off her pain meds so she got a little cranky today. We finally heard her cry! She sounds like a little lamb when she cries. It made us laugh. She was easily soothed with a little food or a paci.
This is our lactation specialist, Tina. (or as we like to call her - "Lac-tina". ha! She is SO nice - she helped us nurse this afternoon and Harper did pretty good. (She is not choking Harper - just burping her!) She was mad as a hornet at first and turned red and cried. We know we have to be patient. We bottle fed the rest of the day because she got so worked up - she was breathing a little hard and I want her to be able to breathe well so we will try again tomorrow!
Harper got moved to a cute pink crib today! She also got to wear clothes for the first time. Tomorrow I'm going to take her something cute to wear. This was me sad when she was throwing a fit. I wanted to scoop her up and kiss her all over. (I eventually did).
This sweet girl, Amy, came and saw me today and brought me the cutest note cards I've ever seen in my life that she made. SO thoughtful!!!! I got SOOOO many cute things in the mail today. I wish I could put them all on here but it might get out of control. I can't believe how nice all of you are. You REALLY don't need to send me things.........but I know it is all sent out of love and I can't express how much it has touched me.
Please pray for my friend Amy. She has a one year old girl and is expecting twin girls - Molly and Ruby. She is due the end ofApril but started having contractions and dilated today. They have given her medicine to stop it but I'm so worried. I've spent the last week looking at tiny babies and I'm praying her girls won't join that club.
P.S. Harper weighs 10 lbs and 9 oz! I love her so much!!!!
