Everything was the same. Well... EXCEPT I was lugging baby stuff through the hallways like a Bel-Air bellhop. AND at one point, I had the urge to pee, but I couldn't go to the bathroom because I had the baby in tow, so I held “it” until I got home. AND when she was hungry during Sunday School, I had to leave class to warm up her bottle of mama's milk even though I was listening to the teacher. AND after Relief Society, I couldn’t just get up and go home; I needed David to show up and help me carry the baby and luggage out.
(Here's baby before church sleeping as soundly as a High Priest during sacrament meeting.)
Odd thing in Sunday School: David fed the baby her bottle, but then he was afraid to burp her in class, so the poor girl just kept spitting up. I think he was afraid of “being rude” if she burped or, heavens, TOOTED loudly in class. He sacrificed the baby’s intestinal comfort for his own timidness. He is so weird sometimes... it’s a family thing. I say, if the baby has gas, the baby has gas. If the ward is opposed to natural babystirrings and tootings, they should ban babies. “Families are together forever! Unless one of you has gas.”
I felt good being back at church even if I came home buku exhausted from missing the usual daytime feedings and naps. I tried to make Banana Nut Chocolate Chip bread that evening and forgot to put nuts and chocolate chips in the batter. I barely got the bananas in.
[Baby minutiae ahead. You have been warned.]
Baby Adhis is a month old today!
She is almost sleeping consistently in between feedings. Almost. She is feeding every 3 hours during the day and every 3-4 hours at night depending on the alignment of the stars. I am now mostly feeding her straight from the tap (though it still burns to do so) with some occasional feedings from pumping.
At her 2-week appointment, she weighed 6lbs 14oz and measured 20 inches long. Yey! And no jaundice! This photo is of her with a biliruben blanket light, which she used for about three 3 days. Whenever David put her in this, he would drone "Phone hooome..." Every.Stinkin'.Time. For 3 days.
Isn't she the cutest little glow worm you have ever seen?
