We made it!!


I made it through the first week! I say “I” because I mean me when it comes to Ava. My little booby baby is doing so well! She is nursing like a pro and things could not be better. We went to the pediatrician last week and she was down 10 ounces from her birth weight which was 10% and normal. Today we went back; 5 days later she has put on 4.5 ounces WHOO HOO! My Dr was more than pleased with that and it is all 100% breast milk. She is a wonderful and easy baby so far just like Jackson was. We are so blessed with another beautiful child. The hard part will be after Labor Day when all our visitors are gone and it is just the three of us all day. My Dr wants me to stay away from toddlers and kids until she has her shots at 6 weeks. So we will have to creative with staying busy!

Amber, she is just beautiful! great job mommy! ya know, you will do fabulously after labor day, its very empowering. Just make sure your laundry is all organized, that is most of the battle, that way you can leave at a moments notice out of the house at anytime, thats your key to being sane, leaving the home! cant wait to meet her!
