For once I'm speechless....

I'm still here I swear!
Being a mom really is a full time job....
even my computer addiction has fallen to the way side!
Who can blame me when I have this sweet little guy to love all over!

Our first days home have been about as good as can be expected. Jamie seems to have his days and nights a bit confused, and to say nursing has been a challenge would be the understatement of the century. I don't really blame the little man's frustration though.... Let's just say I wouldn't want to go to the bar that wasn't serving me drinks either. Apparently my boobs missed the memo that now that baby is here they need to do something....I hear beer can boost milk production....now that's a solution I can get on board with!

And for old times sake, here's my "41 week" belly pic....not so bad for giving birth 4 days ago.

Happy Friday everyone!!

He is adorable! The last photo is so precious. You must be loving life right now. I hope the nursing situation works out for you.

You look great, especially considering you had that little bean just a few days ago :)

Have a wonderful weekend!

Gosh he is so freaking cute!!! A million more congrats to you! And um.. you look awesome! FOUR DAYS AGO he was in your tummy! That's amazing! I cant even quite wrap my head around it..

Love him! Can't wait to see more pics.. That head of hair is just DARLING! I wish Carter had a bit more.. he's already rocking the bald man ring.. It's hysterical!

Just a tip that has worked for me.. you know, in the boobie buffet department? Oatmeal every morning for breakfast (the boring plain Quaker Oats in a can.. with some brown sugar mixed in) and a Blue Moon... daily. And I'm a freakin' dairy cow.

I heard it worked wonders and figured, "hey? why not?!" Good luck, Mama! Keep those pictures coming!

He's so cute!!! I don't blame you one bit for avoiding the computer. I sure would.

Give your milk a few more days to come in. Breast feeding was difficult for me at first but it got easier with time. And don't beat yourself up over it. There is absolutely nothing wrong with formula either. Ellie had both and she's fairly normal. LOL!!!

You look great!!! I can't wait to hear your birth story!!!!

XOXO

He is precious! Girl, drink that beer! I've never heard of that before, but it's gotta be worth a shot, right?

I'm Molly said...

Awwww, he's so cute!

Come on BOOBS! Time to make the milk!

(p.s. don't beat yourself up if it doesn't work out. Just try your best. That's all you can do, mama!)

Enjoy your new little man. He is SUPER cute :)

Jesslee said...

Awww! He is the cutest little man ever! Sorry I have no advice on the whole boob milk production thingy but I too have heard that beer works -and that sounds like a good enough excuse to me!

Lindsey said...

He is adorable! Hang in there and I promise he will figure out his days and nights. It took about 2 weeks for my little man to get it figured out. I wasn't producing enough either in the milk department. It is definitely frustrating.

Ashley said...

He is SO cute! Love that hair :) Sorry about the milk situation, that's hard. Beer does work, so you should definitely try it! If nothing else, it'll at least be a good excuse to have one, haha. You look GREAT! Hard to believe that he was in there just a few days ago!
