A brisk Fall day out here at the farm

So the Doc appointment went alright. Emily-Rose far exceeded my weight prediction and weighed in at 7lbs 3oz!! Thats a full lb gain in a week...holy cow. Yeaaaa breastmilk.  The doc though still thinks that I dont have enough milk. Even though shes gaining , has lots of diaper stuff going on, sleeps , and really has no signs of dehydration happening she still thinks I dont have enough milk. Granted the baby has been waking up more and eating for longer periods of time but doesnt that bring my milk up?...more

the day of many letters

today , our newest Addition , Emily-Rose goes to her weekly doctor visit. Becase she was a preemie she gets to see docs every week till shes term. Which Technically she already is considering that shes now 38 weeks gestational age and lots of people have babies at 38 weeks...alas they count 40 weeks as term, so she has 2 more visits after this one. I am not really upset about it, being that I would rather her be checked and nothing come of it then not and something come. Everything with her is great. she seems to be thriving. I am anxious to see how much she weighs....more
