Its going really well too.
This week we came home from the hospital.
I got hit with severe pain from delivery, but by Thursday I was feeling good enough for a neighborhood walk. Today we even went on our first family outing to Jones coffee. I forgot to bring diapers. Opps. Rookie Mom mistake. But thankfully we were only gone an hour so diapers weren't needed.
I hit some bumps in the road with Lucy's latch when feeding, but yesterday we hit a turning point and now most nursing sessions are pleasurable rather than frustrating.
Sleeping has been going well with Lucy sleeping at least 1 3.5-4 hour stretch each night. Every morning I wake up from a good stretch of sleep I thank God that she slept one more night. She usually wants to eat ever hour between 8pm and midnight or 1am, but that tires her out pretty good.
We started off co-sleeping, but last night she slept in her bassinet all night. Success.
We also introduced Dottie Jo back into the pack and she has been doing wonderfully. Not ever aggressive, just curious. She's even concerned with Lucy cries.
Over all I feel so incredibly blessed to have Lucy in my life and I'm starting to really enjoy being a Mom.
Now for pictures.
Also major thanks to my Mom. She's fed us, cleaned, ferried me to the pediatrician (so John could work), watched our dog, helped me manage my pain, and so many other things. I'm so grateful for her help.
Also thanks to Katrina, Kevin, and Erin for feeding us this week. It was really nice to not need to figure out meals on top of everything else.
