I cant believe he’s a month old!!
Current mood: blessed
Well hello my dear family and friends, I know its been a while since ive been on but things have been insane crazy. Ive finally got a chance to sit for a min and give a quick update. Well it seems as though the last 3weeks have kinda just flown by! hes getting so big and attentive, he smiles alot he eats alot and he sleeps alot hahahah, no really he does sleep alot still but he will have 2 or 3 stretches during the day where he is up anywhere from an hr to 2 1/2 to 3 hrs so hes getting better! We still are having a few nites where he wants to party all nite and keep us up but mostly hes down anywhere from 3 to 5 hrs at nite so i am starting to get some sleep!! we took him for a pediattician visit on the 27th and he weighed in at 9lbs 4oz he was 2wks then so I can only imagine what he weighs now!! The pediatrician was telling me to wake him up and make him eat every three hrs but that didnt last long it was absolute hell on him and me, i was forcing the lil guy awake after trying to wake him from a deep sleep no less which made him crankyNand hard to nurse which in turn made me frustrated and it just was NOT good so i stopped, and things have gotten better i let him wake up when hes hungry or wet or blah blah blah and things calmed down hes not so stressed and neither am I he did catch his first cold over easter weekend let me tell you that was fun!!! but hes better now still a lil congested but nothin major. I honestly have to say motherhood is awsome! yeah I may get a lil frustrated at the lack of sleep but looking at him he is all worth it and im starting to adjust now so its good! He really is a good baby he only cries and gets fussy when hes tired, hungry, or needs a butt change lol but other than that he’s pretty alert and calm i couldnt ask for a better baby.
So things with me are getting better ive lost 30lbs woohoo!! breastfeeding really does make you loos weight, im now anemic from all the blood loss during the delivery and im still slowly healing i still have stiches and i still hurt like hell! but all in all im feeling human again im not aloud to drive until my 6wk apt with my doc but that really doesnt matter, im still kinda weak, but really i feel good. Miguel wants to give dom a sibling but im not even considering it due to the fact we had a complicated pregnancy and a complicated birth i think this lil guy is going to be an only child
anyway im doing well.
So its been 6wks since miguel took off work he took off the last week in feb thinking that lil guy was going to come early and well went back to work today, thought it was going to be a lil hectic by myself but so far its been ok, i thought being by myselF was going to be absolutly crazy but so far so good talk to me in 8hrs when i have to be up at nite by myself! hahahah. My camera had been mia for a while but we got it back. We have a lot of pics on there so i will post some of them soon. and will be taking ALOT MORE!!! hahah anyway just wanted to check in with you all and let you know how things are going and everything is good, hes big, hes healthy, and we all are doing well!! well im off for now i will post pics REALLY soon i promise! love you all and hope you are all well!
