|Fun times in the attic. Sigh. We need a basement.|
Adding another human to our house has made me MANIACALLY clean and throw/give things away. Seriously. I've taken no less than 7 full bags to the Goodwill in the last two weeks. Karl is teaching me his wise, minimalistic ways.
We bought a pre-lit tree for the first time ever (versus the real tree we normally get). I feel a bit like I'm cheating at Christmas but it was SO EASY. I'm all about easy these days. Currently, it's lights only sans ornaments. I stick the baby in her swing, set it in front of the tree and plug in the lights. INSTANT MESMIRIZATION.
I had my six-week post birth appointment with my midwives yesterday (at 8+ weeks but whatever!) and everything was fine. The baby is a solid 13 pounds and 4 oz and she goes to her pedi next week for Vaccinations: Round 1.
Speaking of NK, bottles are poison to her lips. So, uh, we're working on that. We've tried a VARIETY of bottles. No luck so far. Pros: No pumping! Cons: Someday I will need to go somewhere without her. I'm working on a dedicated NKisms post.
TIME IS FLYING BY.
