One Week Home

I'm not feeling any of the posts I've been writing, so let me just do a quick one to let you know how awesome it is having D home.

I'm tired.  He's mostly really happy most of the time.  We're going for walks and doing tummy time and reading books.

Like normal people!

It is so nice to be outside and active.  Thank goodness for our awesome SoCal weather (sorry snowstorm peeps).

He's eating and pooping adequate amounts.  I never thought I would get so excited for poop!

Dylan actually ate 120 mls tonight.  4 ounces!  Amazing.

I never thought I'd be napping from 8pm-10 pm.  Or that sleeping from 7:30-9:00 am, uninterrupted, could make make ridiculously excited.

On another note, pumping 4x a day around baby's feedings, hoping he's asleep at the right times and hoping the dog will leave me alone while your LO eats formula....sucks.  Hopefully we'll be back to breast milk soon - or I'll give in and quit pumping. One of the two will have to happen in the next week or so.

I really am LOVING life with my perfect little man.

More to come soon!


  1. ugh! hated pumping and not looking forward to it again. I feel ya.

    Glad things are feeling normal. Yes, the random naps are amazing (for us, not for them!) ha! love it! Thanks for the update!

  2. This makes me smile =) So very happy for you guys!!

  3. This post makes me so happy! I'm thrilled that you have him home and that life has been good! xo

  4. Glad he is home with you! It is tough with a newborn, and I assume even more tough with a NICU grad...but sounds like it is coming together for you. :-)

  5. That is so great! Now, I'm not one of the people who think formula is the devil. In fact my twins have been exclusively formula fed for the last 3 months since my milk dried up with double mastitis. BUT I will say that if you have the option to keep pumping (even though it is so HARD!) I would highly recommend you do it! I still have a hard time with the fact that I had to quit, I would pump and pump and pump and nothing would come out. So if there's milk, my advice is to keep up with it because I had a harder time than I expected once it was over for me. Enjoy that little man!

  6. Yay!! So happy to hear this. You have been through so much - now, enjoy!
