Stop the counting

Okay ... so I count the minutes she feeds, I count the wet diapers, I count the poopy diapers ... when does the counting stop? Holly Molly - I have flipped out a few times during the past few days ... I am so so emotional, that I cry! I cry happy tears, tears of joy and then I will cry tears of frustration ... it is all so much fun! Now my Baby Girl ... she is ADORABLE ...



Also forgot to tell you about our trip to the Dr ... so we went to the Dr again Monday to do a weight check ... they nurse said that we needed to have her in a clean diaper and naked, ready to weigh ... so we start to undress her, I undo the first tab on her diaper, then the second, the hubbs starts to hand me her new clean diaper and she starts peeing all over the place. I start to giggle tell Andy "she is peeing, she is peeing" (Note - I am new at this, her diaper is the first I have ever changed so the remove and replace thing needs work) So then we start to clean up all the pee and I notice this nasty look on her face, I say OMG she is going to shit ... and wouldn't you know it ... she shit all over the place ... I tried to hold her over the table but you know that great paper that is worse than a brown paper bag when it comes to absorbency ... all the pee and poop was rolling off the table! I tried to pick her up cause her clothes were getting wet and she was still pooping ... so I started holding her over the trash can. Andy was laughing hysterically and I was saying "oh this is okay, this is okay it happens, don't stress out" I kept telling myself it was okay not to freak out! It finally stopped and Andy was like Honey you did great it is over you did good, we had to call the nurse in and tell her we did bad ... she giggled and said that "it happens" it was all good.


Anyway ... that is what has been going on here ... I am off now to take a nap ... hope you are all well! My first baby Dudley (the dog) doesn't seem to mind the baby ... see him below, he is so cute!!! Our Honorary Aunt MelBel and Naji came into town to visit us ... Here are some more pictures:

Wow-she is gorgeous! You are doing a great job-you awesome mommy! and don't worry- all the crying is completely normal. :)

So beautiful! Don't worry about the crying jags, that's normal, they'll stop eventually. Funny story about the dr office visit though. LOL

One day I'll tell you about my visit to the GYNO when she was 6 weeks old. Believe me - things NEVER go as planned anymore. She's GORGEOUS and I can't wait to meet her. You are doing a GREAT job. And the counting stops in a few weeks. I used to keep a clipboard in the living room with a pen and just write everything down...it keeps your brain from exploding.

OH yeah...after a while you'll be asking your husband "did she poop this week?"!!! Funny story though! You just have to laugh at that kind of stuff. NO harm....
Cute pics...I can't wait to see more. Hang in there with the crying stuff...it gets better I promise!

Love the poop story. We are all about the poop right now. You will find that now that you have a child talking about poop can be very entertaining.

She is a cutie!

our firstborn slept in a crib a foot away from our bed. when he was asleep, i check every 5-15 minutes if he was still breathing. i count the times he peed, he pooped, even his respirations. so, yeah, you're a normal mom:)

by the way, your dog is so cute...looks like a real stuffed toy:)

Oh dear dear the counting~ poops, pees, time of nursing, etc. etc. I made an excel spread sheet to keep up with mine. As Stephanie said I promise this will stop, and pretty soon you will only be counting the sleep you will soon get.! Love you! Courtney
