Lessons in Motherhood - Part 2

NEVER CHANGE BABY BEFORE FEEDING BABY...Hailey is a big spitter upper. We have the subtle little spit ups that slowly drool out the sides of her mouth to the projectile spit up and everything in between. Plus, as an extra bonus, she not only spits up when she's finished eating, but for hours after eating. I don't think that I own any bedding that hasn't gotten spit up on it. It's a lot of fun.

To add some other excitement to the pot, Hailey has "thrush," which for those of you that don't know, is a yeast infection in her mouth. It turned her tongue completely white (which was really nasty). It also made nursing really painful again. The medicine that we have to give her is in liquid form, and we have to dropper .5 ml into each cheek and rub it around in her cheek. The medicine is this sweet smelling sticky crap that is really unpleasant, but it seems to be doing the job.

Anyway, that's all for now. I'll try to get Luke to put some pictures up this weekend.

Lessons in Motherhood - Part 1


Last night Hailey slept for 5 hours from 9pm to 2am...what a gift! Then, she woke up again at 4:45am to eat, but she was a little wet in the behind so I decided to change her. Remember, it was 4:45am so I wasn't fully awake (I can nurse lying down now so I don't have to fully wake up). So, I changed her diaper in bed as I was half asleep. At about 7:45 this morning, she started fussing again and I hear this explosive wet poopy noise. Then, I roll her over and realize that I didn't put the diaper on all the way when I changed her at 4:00am so there is wet, yellow poopy all over her nightgown, blanket, my bed sheets, etc. It was a bad scene. Thank goodness it was 7:45 and not 2:00am or something. She got a much needed bath this morning and is now sleeping soundly!
