So what have we been up to? How about another round of the stomach bug! What?????? I didn't know you could get it twice within weeks. Our oldest daughter and myself have been bathroom buddies for a couple days....and again we're praying the rest of the family does not get it....again. This is not the way I planned on losing my baby weight!
Baby girl is doing well and growing. She just moved out of the newborn diapers into size 1 which tells me she is gaining! She has been such a trooper with nursing. She was such a great nurser at the hospital, then we came home and she had to be bottle formula fed while I was really sick, then I switched her to just nursing and she did wonderful. She is starting to get into a sleep schedule which is nice. We are slowly getting into a schedule around the house....slowly!! I'm finding it a big adjustment going from 5 to 6. I don't know if it is because we've had so much sickness lately or what....but it will come. I'm just enjoying baby cuddles right now :)
Other than that....I don't have much to post about. I haven't even taken pictures lately! Need to get on that!

Our boy lost his first tooth the other day. It was quite funny....he was very nervous about how much it was going to hurt having it pulled out. I told him we would wait till it got really wiggly and pull it then so it wont hurt as much. Well, he goes off and starts wrestling with his big brother on the floor, ends up hitting himself in his mouth with his own hand, and out pops his tooth! I like pulling teeth....but that works too :)

It's been a long time since posting but it's been a crazy, crazy week!!!! Baby did arrive safely on Monday at 12:15pm weighing 9.9 lbs! She was a big girl! Everything went so very well with a short labor and quick delivery. We are so thankful. The week leading up to her delivery the kids had come down with the stomach bug. Nasty, nasty stuff. One would get it and then a few days later another etc.....While we were at the hospital, our oldest had it. We came home on Tuesday and by Friday I came down with it. What a horrible 3 days! Hubby sure stepped in and was doing the nightly feedings and diaper changes. What a guy :) I was so dehydrated, my milk wasn't coming in. She was given formula for several days. She also had bad jaundice and hubby had to take her into the doctors WITHOUT ME! That was one of the hardest things I had to watch was him drive off with our baby and me not be there with her. The kids haven't been around baby yet just because we're not sure when this bug is going to stop. Hubby has been feeling a little off lately but so far the Lord has seen fit to keep him healthy. We also have one boy who didn't get it so I'm still a little anxious about that. We are praying baby girl doesn't come down with it since I'm sure I exposed her to it. Hopefully if we can get through this week without anyone coming down with it we will be out of the woods. Not really the way we pictured bringing a new sibling home but God is good. I hope to get some pictures posted soon.
