i feel like i now have a packed social calendar! i'm seeing the ladies from mesdames plus baby on wednesday night. thursday, i hopefully have a friend coming in the afternoon. also, a friend will be coming over with dinner that night. my mom gets into town early friday morning for the weekend. the following week arden has her first doctor appointment (eek, shots!). then i'll see my due date twin from family style love on friday. oh and i go to the dentist at 8 am on saturday (gag, big time). this all makes me feel so much better. i love arden to pieces but being around her 24/7 is starting to wear on me. i think that even if it's still 24/7, but involving other people, things will improve.
speaking of my big girl :) today she is 6 weeks 5 days, holy cow. time is flying by so quickly. we had our final midwife appointment today. we found out she is 11 lbs 5 oz and 23 1/2 inches. i looked up the percentiles for those numbers. she is 75% in weight and 95% in length. i've been feedin' her real good, haha.
breastfeeding is going truly well. i've just needed to chill out about how much she wants to eat. she seems to want a lot more in the evening, and i needed to realize that this ensures a nice long first stretch for the night. typically, she sleeps 4-6 hours, then wakes up every 2-3 hours. now, if we could put ourselves to bed at 7 or 8 we would be golden :) we've been blessed to not have the sleep issues from the daytime carry over into the night.
i just absolutely lost my train of thought cause anna asked me a question. ha! oh well. i hope you all have a good week. i know i'm going to try :)
