Wow. We've been at home for 3 days and I have no idea who this critter is! It doesn't help that she was pretty much comatose for about 24 hours of our time together for unknown reasons. She lost "a significant amount of her body weight" since birth according to our doctor (about 13%, dropping from 7lb. 13oz. to 6lb. 12oz. on Friday. This weight loss is one possible reason for her sleepy ways. The doc recommended that I "supplement her" over the weekend to try to reverse or at least stop the weight loss. If you read my earlier post regarding La Leche League, you'll know that being unable to breast feed for some reason was one of my biggest fears concerning these newborn weeks. With the help of an extremely supportive husband, a Mom who believes as much in my plight as anyone, and a lactation consultant willing to sneak a digital scale to my house at 11:00pm on a Friday night to monitor Vi's weight, I think we're now on an upswing with her weight. Terri (the lactation consultant), showed Shawn and me how to supplement her using my breast milk and a siphon and even though we had to do a couple bottles during her "baby coma" yesterday, I think we're back on track now with nursing. I just knocked on wood. Anyway, I could go on and on about the feeding issues, Violet's lethargy (a possible side effect of the Percoset prescribed to me in the hospital!), and the feeling of worry that has gripped both of us from moment to moment, but, instead, I'll post some pictures of some of our good times over the last few days. There actually have been a ton of those, too, and lots of "How did we get so lucky?" conversations for me and Shawn. How did we get so lucky???
