Last night he went two 4hr blocks before stirring! He is now eating 3oz-3.25oz at each feeding (I am dipping in to my frozen milk stash since I don't have a full supply to nurse him the entire day. I was prepared for this though) he likes to nurse best when he isn't fully awake or snack when he has bottlefed for maybe 1.5-2 ounces.. He is such a snuggler..
We are still adjusting to life with a newborn. I am sure people think "Oh she has done this twice before, it's like riding a bike" Uhhhh, actually it's not. It's been SO LONG since I have done this that I truly feel like a 1st time mom! I jump at the slightest noise he makes and I cannot stand to hear him cry, it hurts my heart. Every step forward makes my heart sing.. So far at each appointment he checks out perfectly and I am so thankful for that. Life is really wonderful on the other side, but I still think about the "dark days" too. I feel sadness for my friends who are not yet on the other side, although that number thankfully is dwindling.
We are already thinking ahead regarding a sibling for Greyson. Yes, he has two already, BUT he has no one to grow up with. My older boys were best of friends or arch enemies (pick your day of the week, lol!) They fought constantly or loved each other fiercely and still do. I want that camaraderie for Greyson. So we are going to take this year and see what our finances and lives are looking like and then get a game plan together.
OK enough about that, we have lots of time for that talk. Here are some cute pics of the little man from the last weeks..
