Happy Birthday to Me!

I can't believe our baby girl is already 1 week old! They grow up so fast (tear)! Ella's now up to over 3 oz . of milk every 4 hours and slept most of the day - kinda like I do after a huge Thanksgiving meal. Though eating so much is great news for her overall health, it's somewhat frustrating for her mommy, as Julia has become a pumping machine!  It's too bad that Full Service gas stations aren't so popular, because after demonstrating her skills, she'd be hired on the spot!  She did get to nurse Ella for the first time this weekend, which made her heart melt with pride.
I've heard that kids teach you things, and I discovered this is true, for instance: Ella taught me that her diaper is much more effective when pulled up high on her back, instead of halfway down her booty. Unfortunately she chose to demonstrate that, rather than explain it, but I got the point.
7 more days!

lol! Soon you'll learn that it doesn't matter how high her diaper is pulled up, because at times she can fill it to overflowing! It's a pretty nasty lesson to learn as well! So excited she will come home in 1 week!!!

Tell Julia to hang in there! Pumping can be very frustrating but it gets easier! Love you guys!
