Thursday Thoughts

Things with baby OG continue to go well. For the most part, he's not very fussy and he usually only wakes up once during the night. Though I still continue to check him quite a bit. Hey, it's my first baby and all the stuff about SIDS is just too scary.

Breastfeeding has been going well for the most part aside from his constantly wanting the boob. We've given him formula a few times but he tends to spit up every time he has it opposed to the one time he's spit up breast milk. It's also very messy. We did buy a pump so that Mary could do feedings and so the baby wouldn't always have to be attached to my boobage. I definitely don't like the pump as it's kind of painful but I guess just something that I need to get used to.

Mary left early this morning to go to Maine. She won't be home until late tomorrow night. And she'll be away all of next week; she leaves Sunday and gets back Friday night. At least she was able to consolidate her research trip into one week instead of the two it was supposed to be. She'll just go up for random days later on.

And next week will be my mom's last week here. She's definitely looking forward to going home as Cameron has run her ragged and Chloe (the dog) drives her crazy. She has been a major help with Cameron so it will be interesting to see how he does when she's gone. Or rather how I do, balancing a high energy aggressive 3 year old and my first baby. Mary will also be back at work full time and pre-school doesn't start until September. Though I think Cameron will settle down a bit as my mom lets him get away with murder. She thinks we're too strict which we probably are but I think there's a medium between us and her zero discipline.

Oh, wow, it sounds like it'll take you guys a while to get into a routine. Good luck w/Mary being away!!

Hi we created a blog and i think i've figured out how to post comments (if you're reading this I have).

Good luck when Mary goes out of town...you're so brave!!! I am usually waiting by the door for a handoff when Ciara comes home. Unfortunately our honeymoon period is over and little Lexi LOVES exercising her lungs especially when I'm home alone and have a million things to do or in the wee hours of the morning. I hope OG's isn't actually a honeymoon period and he keeps sleeping and stays nice and quiet for you guys:)!!
