Yesterday, my little Warren turned two weeks old! It seems he just came to us, yet like he's been with us forever. We had his two week check up, and the doctor said he looks great. He now weighs 7.6lbs, and he is doing all the things developmentally that he should be at 2 weeks. He is still not having consistent bowel movements on his own, but the doctor said babies' bowels don't fully develop until 3mths, so he was not worried about it. I will keep giving him glycerin suppositories every other day to help him out.
Things are going well with our new life. The transition has seemed very natural for Roy and me. Warren is definitely the highlight of our life right now. I love to watch he and Roy talk about random things. He is mesmerized by his daddy's voice. Warren is eating about every 3hrs now, except today - he thinks he needs to eat every hour and a half. My milk is definitely in, and it feels great to know I am nourishing my baby. Pumping is not going well, though. I still can only pump about 1.5 - 1oz per breast in 15mins time. That's ridiculous, and not even worth the hassle. I know Warren gets more than that when he eats because I see it in the nipple shield (I recommend those for every mom, by the way. No cracking, blistering, etc.) Anyway, if you have any helpful hints on pumping, please comment! I would really like to breastfeed thru the summer, but that won't happen if I can't pump while back to school the last two weeks of May.
My sister came into town last Friday and stayed until Monday. I tell you, that woman is like the cleaning robot from the Jetsons!!! She was a huge help, and it was just nice to go through each day with her here. She also taught Warren to take his pacifier. I had mixed feelings about this at first, but he seems to do well with it, and it doesn't want it all the time, so it's good. Thanks, Aunt Kim!
One more thing... my 32nd birthday was Saturday the 11th, and Roy took me to get a new cell phone! I got a super cool red phone that slides open and has a full keyboard! I am the text msg queen now! Super fast, and love it! Thanks, Baby.
