Most of it has nothing to do with Dylan. I've decided to let other people help me out a bit more with his feedings so I feel less pressure to be there all day, so right now, Dad is feeding him. Hopefully it went well! On Thursday, Grandma is going to feed him while I go get the massage that Mr. GG got me for Christmas.
So instead of going to the hospital tonight, as soon as I got home and finished pumping (around 4:30), I got things done. Lots of things!
I cancelled our cleaning lady a few days ago because she wasn't very good, but I know how happy it makes Mr. GG when the house is clean, so I CLEANED! Not everything, but the kitchen and living room. I also put away a ton of the stuff that has accumulated in the past month or so since emptying our office. (We still have all of the office furniture in the family room.)
Then I did even more stuff.
I organized baby clothes.
I postponed my jury duty.
I paid my first hospital bill. (I owe $20. The total is $58,000. And that is just physician fees. Thank goodness for my excellent benefits!!!!!!!!!! This probably deserves it's own post.)
I registered my car. On time!
I put stamps on baby shower thank you notes. (Now I need to add addresses.)

I haven't been able to properly "nest" because of obvious reasons, but the nursery is shaping up and we're getting there.
It feels amazing to be productive. I am not a very organized nor domestic person, but I feel so good when I'm able to act like one!

And as far as Dylan goes, last night (10:00) and today were better. I bought Dr. Brown's bottles to try with him and last night he took 40mls which made me very happy. Today he took 10 and then 22 which is basically how the middle of the night went too. We are also starting to thicken his feeds with rice cereal which I think will help him not to brady (when his heart rate drops). It usually happens because of choking.
Here's a pick of Dylan rocking a mohawk :)
