The most exciting and exhausting 2 weeks of my life.
Will is officially 2 weeks old today. He went in for his 2 week check and had gained 15 ounces since last Thursday!! Amazing what supplementing with a little formula can do. I am still disappointed that I am unable to give him all the milk he needs but I guess it has to do with the same hormonal stuff that made me take 6 years to get pregnant. He is doing great though at going back and forth from breast to bottle. I am pumping as well, so hopefully all my hard work will pay off. He now has a clogged tear duct so is by far less adorable with a goopey eye. My mom is leaving on Saturday and I fear what I will do after that. Thankfully, Molly arrives on Sunday morning, so I won't have to go it alone for another week. I went to the Dr today and he said I am healing well. He gave me some medication to boost my milk, but after reading some of the side effects, I am not sure I want to take it. I left the baby with my mom while Jason and I went to the OB and it seemed very strange not to have him with us. It's amazing how quickly it becomes normal to have him around. I will post some new pictures tomorrow.
