I’m due today! haha… That’s the first thing I saw when opening my planner up this morning.. It is crazy to believe that just a week ago, Erik & I were waddling (err… well, at least I was) around Walmart, picking up milk, bread, bananas, etc. the essentials for our house since we’d be at the hospital for a few days, then wiped out when we got back home. This week has really flown by!
Miss Ashlyn is doing very well! She had a check up on Tuesday and she did test a little bit positive for jaundice, so she got to get a little sunlight from our bay window that afternoon, then just to be on the safe side, we took her back on Wednesday to follow up w/ the levels, and they did manage to decrease. So that was good to hear. Kaylor has been such a great big sister already as well.. She is very good about holding Ashlyn and making sure to check on her to make sure there’s not spit up, etc. We received an incredible fruit bouquet this week too… We loved it!
So far (fingers crossed) Miss A has been a very good baby. She rarely fusses, and typically the only time that is, is when she’s showing hunger cues & mommy is quickly using the potty and grabby the Boppy to get ready to sit & nurse.. I have also enjoyed having Erik home w/ us this week. It’s really nice to have him around the house & keeping his girls company. We’ve both enjoyed bonding w/ her as well as enjoying one another as parents. We gave Ashlyn her first sponge baths this week too!
