And By the Way

Do you ever get the feeling you're being stared at? I don't care what they say, I don't believe for a minute that she can't see me from this far away. She is staring right at me...

Anyway, it occurs to me today, as my friend Nicole is in labor as we speak, that I haven't expressed proper kudos to the folks at Baptist Hospital for Women.

Those people are awesome.

We had terrific nurses, from our L&D nurse to our baby nurses, everybody took an interest in us and made sure we had everything we needed. When we went in for our new baby clinic visit on Saturday the nurse spent a solid hour with us talking through things and helping me with some nursing issues. Then she scheduled us for a follow up visit tomorrow, even though Kaycie is physically perfectly fine, to make sure the nursing situation has improved and that I'm feeling better about things.

I am starting to come out of the haze a bit. I may revert back when my mom leaves. It's nice being able to hand Kaycie off at 5:30am and go back to sleep without worrying about her waking up every ten minutes! But she's sleeping better, like 3 hours at a time during the night, and I'm getting more than an hour of rest between feedings. And did I mention that she's just so darn cute that really, who wouldn't want to hang out with her??

She's staring at me again. I swear she's thinking something vitally important. I also think she may be driving by next week. Sheesh.

Don't sweat it about the nursing. It's harder than everyone thinks. The two of you will get the hang of it!

So, so glad everything's going well!

BB - I put up a bunch on my Flickr account, you can get there from the Flickr box on the right. Been too tired to go through the hundreds we have!

Nicole - Kaycie seems to be getting the hang of it better than I am. It's getting better and the nurses have been a huge help. We're going to make some adjustments to the routine this week and see if that helps.
