where have i been?

pumping my way into a new freezer apparently. no ive just been trying to cope with life. being a mom is more than a full time job, and i already have a full time job too. between taking care of my little one, working and trying to take care of myself, i forsee a much needed vacation in my near future.

i really did get a new freezer though, apparently my pumping has slowly earned me a freezer full of milk popsicles with no space for real ones! i searched online and found that walmart had a 5 cu-ft one that wasnt too bad on the pockets. i can now pump in peace knowing that my ice cream, chicken breasts and puff pastry sheets will still have a home. speaking of pumping, i feel like my flow has gone down a little? i don’t want to even speak that into existence but i am still maintaining pumping more than consumes but I’d like to up my flow more so I know that she has enough milk to keep her happy and those rolls nice and thick. I think maybe I’m not getting the extra 500 calories a day? [bring on the milkshakes!] lol no but really maybe I should be snacking more? ::yummy::  And I plan on drinking lots more water, always much easier said than done for me, but for that little girl i’d do anything.

Also my little chunky mama has started daycare! Oh my gosh I didn’t want to let her gooo that first day, I just stood in the classroom and kept kissing her. I know the true definition of obsession now, and it’s her. But I was able to watch her all day on the class cams and check her report as things were happening so I knew when she got her diaper changed, when she started napping, her mood; the whole shebang. It’s a pretty awesome system and it helped this first time mom deal and  i got to see that she took it better than I did. I will say that she’s having a little bit of a hard time falling asleep because they put her on her back in the class and at home she sleeps on her tummy. Things to work on i guess?

 

more updates for later, i want to nap. but really im not going to nap i have so many other things to do. le sigh, the life of a mom i guess?

    my dahling, you will do just fine. It will take time and patience. She will soon be turning over so
    she will find her comfortable position. did you talk to them. presumably they follow the modern
    doctor’s orders. Yes, being a mom is a full time job, that is why it is good that you at least have
    some hours when you are at work to do something different. Anxiety can make you tired too.
    Love you and big kisses for both.

    Darling, your flow is not diminishing, it is adjusting, and soon you will see that she continues to strive on what you give her. Many mothers give up breastfeeding at this time for this exact reason. You will eventually get to a point when the milk pumps up alone only on demand… hang on, ask advice from La Leche League, but hang in there.
    She looks beautiful and I love the pics and videos Pat sends.
