so we are on day 3 of being home. I now understand why my brother's blog isn't updated very often. Having a 2 year old, and a baby who needs constant observation, leaves zero time for fun things like blogging. Simon went from eating 3 ounces every 4 hours while in the hospital, to eating like 1-1.5 ounces every hour during the night. This has created quite an interesting milk supply situation. The last two mornings, I have pumped 12-15 ounces. I read that it's best to drain completely when you pump, but after 15 ounces, I'm so bored and somewhat mystified that I usually quit. I'm almost healed enough to nurse him exclusively, which is good, because he seems to hate all the bottles we have been given. He loved them at the NICU, but the ones we have here, don't seem to do it for him. It's definitely been an adjustment.
I'm so glad the weather rocks! Yesterday, Ava went outside to play 3 times. Twice with Hayden and Co. and once with Madison. She was super tired last night though, due to no nap, and so much play time...and had to go for a car ride to get put to sleep. She was out by 10pm though and up at 8am, so we're making good progress on getting her schedule back to normal. While I was in the Hospital, she was staying up till 12:30 or 1 and sleeping in until 11:00. Sandi has been coming over after work this week and helping me make it to bed time. She's headed to St. George today and so I'm on my own--but not really...because tons of people have offered to help should I begin to lose my mind or become overwhelmed.
We're still receiving yummy meals from our ward--which has been a daily miracle. Thank you!! Chris left this morning with a small laugh and "well, good luck hun!" Thanks to prayers and priesthood blessings, I know we're going to make it....day by day....hahaha sometimes hour by hour.
