2 weeks old

Already. Wow. She is generally doing great. She still is not back to birthweight yet, which means I have been pumping and giving her bottles so that we can monitor her intake. I think I'll have to do this at least until her 1 month check-up and we'll see how much she weighs then. It's a PITA to say the least, but I really, really want to keep breastfeeding. Here's some more pics...

She's holding her nose. This is after I apologized to her for stinking so bad since I was not able to get a shower that day. Too funny!!

Here she is all dressed up for church.

She has a blocked tear duct in her left eye which you can see here. Poor thing.

She is SOOOO beautiful!!! And looks a lot like you, I think. Gosh, I forgot how CUTE and perfect newborns are (despite the Not Sleeping and the Constant Pooping). She is just darling and looks so, so sweet.

Hey, in re: your previous post--is it easier to deal with a newborn since she's your fifth, and you know This Too Shall Pass? I keep telling myself it will be because I know it will be finite, that I will in fact sleep, shower, eat a hot meal again. With Maggie I just felt at first that I had gone and wrecked my life--of course now I am sure I will be thinking I wrecked Maggie's, the one person whose life means more to me than my own!

I linked to you through your comment at Blissfully Bitchy - Hang in there - whatever you do will be good for that perfect baby girl.

Coming to you supportively, while pumping away -
