We want to Pump You Up

Today Rylee had a follow-up doctor appointment to see how much weight she’s gained since last Wednesday. I am very happy to report that our big eater is now up to 6lbs 6oz! Woo Hoo! Rylee gained 1lb & 1oz since last week. This news was exciting enough, but the best part is that we don’t need to supplement her feedings anymore. She is now on breast milk only. This is very exciting for Momma for middle of the night feedings. It may be a bit sad for Daddy though because, when he’s home, he’s the one who gave Rylee her bottle after she was done breast feeding. But they will still get snuggle time when Rylee is done feeding as Momma will pass her off to Daddy for burping. He seems to have faster results than mom.

Rylee and I survived our first day without Daddy as well as can be expected. Bill called around 1pm and asked what I’d done this morning. I had to stop and think and realized I hadn’t done any one significant thing, but I was busy the whole morning. How does that happen? I guess this is what being a mom is all about, you’re very busy but can’t list one big accomplishment.

Tomorrow I’m going to work online to get some photo albums underway. That is my big goal this summer. There are at least 4 that I want to get done. I’m sure that a 5th will develop as well.

  1. Hey Diane, hope you are well! Good to hear about the weight gain always a good sign for newbees… not so good for some of us. Hope you have a great weekend. We are somehow struggling along without you at work but…its early yet.

    Give the babe a kiss for us.
