I was up with Claire a lot last night, so at 5am I gave her daddy a shift while I crashed on the couch in the living room. When I woke up a few hours later and walked back into the bedroom I saw this scene...
Claire has been drinking 60-70 mL per feeding lately and has not been spitting up at all. She is still taking Zantac. I'm taking her to the pediatrician on Tuesday and hopefully she will have gained weight. When we left the hospital on Friday she weighed 6 lbs 8 oz. Unfortunately she won't nurse -- she got used to bottles in the hospital and now she doesn't want to give them up.
Today was my due date. It is REALLY hot outside and I'm so glad to not be pregnant! I am also thankful to have Claire here at home with us and to have the hernia repair and hospitalization behind us.
Tonight James' parents, godmother, brother, and sister came over to eat dinner and see Claire. She slept a lot today, so she was wide awake the entire time they were here. We put her bouncy seat beside the kitchen table and she stared at us all while we ate, probably thinking "who are all these people?"
