I can hardly believe that a week has already gone by! So much to take in. Emma-Lyn is doing great. When we left the hospital her weight was down to 8lbs 2oz and then she was down to a flat 8 lbs but she's back up to 8 lbs 7oz! So this is good. Only thing is she hasn't pooped since we left the hospital. The health nurse has been in a couple of times and seems pretty pleased with Emma-Lyn's progress and isn't overly concerned about the pooping thing. But still, here's hoping she poops soon.
Sean is really having a tough time adjusting to our new life. He's much more cranky and whiny by times. The best we can do is just take things moment by moment. Today my mom went back to Nova Scotia so it was our first day as just us. It was difficult to keep Sean happy when I was feeding Emma-Lyn. He would always pick that time to want to be picked up. Poor guy. Still, that said he certainly seems quite pleased with his baby sister. He wants to hold her and pat her and give her kisses as well as toys. It blesses me to no end to see him be so gentle with her.
Anyhoo, its getting late and I seriously need some sleep. While nursing had been going oh so wonderfully at first, we've hit a bit of a rough spot. I've got some cracking going on and thankfully the health nurse came with a prescription of sorts for a special ointment that I'm hoping will do wonders for it.
Sean and his new Thomas the Tank Engine back pack. Instead of a diaper bag I thought that Sean would like to have his own big boy back pack. Now he and Abby can both pretend to go to school with their backpacks on their backs! :)
Sweet brotherly love!
