4 Weeks

Where has the time gone? L is 4 weeks old today. He is a darling baby who has a little problem with gas pain but other then that he rarely cries (except for hunger and poopy diaper- he will.not.tolerate a poopy diaper for one minute) He is easy to comfort and I am madly in love with him. Today for his 4 week birthday- he smiled at me and my heart soared. Who knew he would have this effect on me. Yesterday he saw his pediatrician- all was good. He weighed 9 lbs and measured 21 inches. He is growing before our eyes. Is it hard?- fuck yeah! Lack of sleep is killing me. My parents left on Sunday and I cried my eyes out. 6000 miles is so far away. Now we are getting into our routine as a little family. B is in school 4 days a week so I am on my own. So far I am coping ok. My pelvic floor feels like it is about to fall out. I'm doing my kegels and can't wait to start exercising- the doc says I have to wait for 2 more weeks. I'm walking daily but I'm dying for more. I still owe you a birth story- mine is very tame but I will post it soon. I will leave you today with some photos of the little man and one of me looking just wrecked!!!!!!

What a cutie he is (and you are too by the way). So sweet. So glad that everything is working out good and I understand the little man regarding the poopy diaper issue he apparently has, who would want to lie around in a poopy diaper?

Hope you get to see your mom and dad soon again?

All the best!

Wow- he's so cute. I'm glad all is going well, despite a little gas.

Oh, yes, he is very cute, but I seriously had to do a double take with the picture of you on my little computer screen thinking, "my god, what happened to her boob! it has a face on it!"

And then realizing stupidly what I was looking at.

I also imagined you would have long hair. You look amazingly very much like my sister.

That first smile...well, it was enough to even melt my hard little heart.

He is absolutely gorgeous, and I love your swing. I don't think you look "wrecked" at all, quite the contrary! I think you're looking very on top of things and like a proud mama!

You look fantastic! So does little L, so sweet I want to swoop him up and cuddle him close.

I had gassy boy too, my sister showed me a yoga thing where you bend his knees and hold them up to his chest for a count of 20 do it a few times and boom relief, it became a game, it worked, so did gripe water just a few drops.

Thrilled to hear you're doing so well, I can relate to the distance thing, when my Mum left after 3 weeks I bawled, I never thought I could manage without her. Sympathies on that one, I'm sure your folks felt as badly as you did.

Hugs and kisses from all in Boston,
Bo xx

It took me a second to notice the little one in that second picture. I was like, what is going on with her chest?! You both look fabulous, tho. Sorry to hear that your pelvic floor feels like it is caving in, too. I haven't even thought about kegels. Now would probably be the time to start doing so!

For wind the only things which worked for me was lying them down for a second and then holding them up against my shoulder and then a huge burp would come up.
I imagined you with long hair too funny that.
Well done, am an avid reader of your blog.

Totally get you on the no sleep thing. I'm getting more now, but still not enough!

Love the Moby! Love it! Wearing baby always helps!

He;s adorable. I hear you on the no sleep..I've been up with maddy since 3:30 a.m. She finally went back to sleep after fighting it for about an hour, at 9 a.m.

He's lovely and you look grand as well. My daughter is gassy as well and has the stinkiest farts ever- worse than her dad and that's saying a lot. She only goes about once aweek and she's not fond of that poopy nappy either!
