Ember had a pediatrician appointment today. She also had her second PKU test.
She’s gaining enough weight and looks great so the doctor doesn’t need to see her again until she’s a month old.
That was a huge relief to me with her first week being so filled with nursing problems.
She is finally latching on well during the day. She’s a lazy, sleepy nurser so that still makes it difficult because she nurses ALL DAY but at least she’s getting what she needs.
Besides that everything else about life feels like it’s spiralling out of control for me. I can’t keep up with anything. I’m so tired all I think about is sleep. My body still hurts. It’s getting better, I suppose, but I still have pain in many places.
My kids are driving me crazy. Four kids at young ages is too many for me! Four kids with all at home is too many for me! I wish I’d put Brooklyn in public school this year just so I could have a break! Having a newborn and taking care of three other demanding children (well, two are demanding) is way way way too much for me to handle.
This morning before the appointments Payson watched Ember take a five minute nap.
So glad to have one more to do crossed off the list. No more appointments for her until the end of the month! Woohoo!
Miss Ember didn’t like her foot being pricked. She also doesn’t like being awake and not attached to mommy’s boob. Or asleep and not in mommy’s arms. Definitely wants mommy. All day.
