Poop, Poop And Even MORE Poop!!!

Yesterday Lola pooped 10 times. 10 times!!!! UGH!! I couldn't believe it. We went out early yesterday and were gone for a good part of the day, so I had to keep finding somewhere private to change her. That was a pain. I finally just told Kevin to take us home. Oh boy......she's doing it again. Gotta go!!

Poor Lola!!

Lex whacked her in the head with his stuffed Curious George!! :( She did cry, but that bottom lip started going. She does this incredibly cute "I'm about to cry" pout. I'll have to get a video of it. :)

She's been nursing all day long!! I decided to skip the boob juice in a bottle thingy and just put her straight to the tap. That's going great, but it's time consuming. Sometimes I feel like it's too much, I can't doit anymore, but I know that I'll regret it if I give up, so I hang in there for her. :) Because it's all about Lola!! LOL!!!

Getting Big!!

Lola is getting so big. She is already making lots of noises, looking around and following me with her eyes whenever I walk by her. She sleeps a lot, which is good. I guess that means she's growing? All I know is this.....I love it!!! I cuddle with her all the time and she doesn't care. She's just so mellow. :)

Lex is doing so much better with her. He hasn't hit her or tried to in a while. Hopefully it stays that way!!!!

I Hate....

Letting Lola cry, but sometimes I just have to. :( She takes it so personally. LOL! When she cries she sounds like someone is hurting's redonkulous!! LOL!! As soon as she hears my voice she stops crying. -_- Silly girl!!

Big Girl!!

Lola is all smiles now. :) She laughs and smiles all the time. It's so adorable. I have video of it so hopefully I'll get it uploaded today sometime. It's kind of hard to get anything done with a baby attached to me all the time. Either that or I'm pumping trying to keep up with her feeding demands. The girl can eat!!!! It feels like she is constantly nursing. That's ok, she can nurse all she wants!!❤

Lola's 1 month Checkup!

GOOD GOD!! I gave birth to a monster!! LOL!! She now weighs 12 pounds and is 22 3/4 inches tall. O_O She doesn't seem so big to me. Maybe it's because Lex is so big that compared to him, she's small. :) She's doing fabulously well. Her and Lex have the same doctor and I love her!!! We talked about everything, she asked how I was doing, how Lex and Raven were adjusting and so forth. I told her that things are going smoothly, so far, so good. :)

Lola slept in her crib on her back last night and I slept in bed with my husband. :) It went really well! She woke up at midnight to be changed and fed, then went right back to sleep and slept till 7! WOOT WOOT!!! I can't lie, it was really nice sleeping in my own bed and not on that air mattress. I hate that thing, it makes so much noise!! UGH! Hopefully I can put it away by Sunday. YAY!!! I just hope she stays on this track for as long as possible. That would be fantastic!

Well, gotta run. We're taking Lex to a park we just discovered that has a small water playground next to it. He's going to LOVE it!!!

Long Night.....

Poor Lola was up all night last night with a some kind of stomach bug. I wasn't feeling well either, so maybe we had the same thing. She had 5 poopy diapers and she threw up twice. :( Poor thing, I felt so bad for her. She was crying and crying and crying and nothing I did helped. I hate that, not being able to help them. I wish there was a cure for everything so babies didn't have to get sick. She's a little gassy today, but no poopy diapers and she hasn't cried once. :) She is a total drama queen though. She fake cries and when I pick her up she coos. Big faker!

So.....Lo still has blue eyes. O_O I know they might change still, and I'm secretly hoping they do, but how beautiful would that be, blue eyes with her dark hair?! SOOOO PRETTY!!! Both Raven and Lex's eyes changed right away and she's already a month old, so we'll see. Kevin says that he looks at her and sees his Mom. :( She does have her eyes, for now. :)

Well, we did it. We no longer have to use the breastshield, but oh my God, my nipples are killing me!!!!!!!!! She latches on and doesn't want to let go. Even if I use my finger to break the latch, it still hurts. -cries- It's ok, I know it will get better. I hope. o_O

I Am So Proud Of My Breast!!!

I woke up this morning and even after feeding Lo I still pumped 6 ounces!! WOOT WOOT!! I'm so glad, this means I can freeze more for nights when I want to sleep or if we have our sitter come over so we can go out. My breast are still hurting like I need to pump or Lo needs to eat. It amazes me. :)I can't believe she will be a month old tomorrow!! O_O GOOD LORD!! Time needs to slow down a bit. :( I like her being this little.

Happy 4th!!!

I can't believe it's already the 4th of July!! My birthday is in 11 days!!!! WOOHOO!!!! Kevin is buying me a new wardrobe for my birthday. I need new cloths in the worst way. I just don't like my old ones any more. Jeans and cute tops aren't for me any more, I want something different. A new look. We'll see. I hate shopping, but it has to be done, right? o_O

Lola slept from 11 p.m. to 6:30 a.m.! I was in need of a full nights sleep with no interruptions. Not that I mind getting up and changing her and then feeding her, but it's tough to do by myself every night. Kevin is taking over tonight for me so I'm going to have to thaw out some breastmilk so he can make her a bottle if she gets up. I'm not going to lie, I'm hoping she wakes up 2-3 times tonight just to remind Kevin how tough it is. heheheeee!!! Maybe I'll let her sleep all day. >:-P I better not do that, Karma is a bitch and I don't want it to bite me in the ass. I'll make it easy for him and keep her up all day with lots of feedings so she's happy and full when she goes down for the night. :) I'm so nice.

Anyway. Today we're going to a cookout at a friend's house, but we have to wait for the kids to wake from their naps. Yes, they nap at the same time. :D Wonderful, I know. Then later tonight we're taking them to see the fireworks. I didn't want to go at first, but this is Lex's first year going and actually understanding, so I want to be there to see his face. :) I bet he's going to love them. I'm still a little unsure about breastfeeding in public with that damn nipple shield, but so far it's been fine so it' should be ok in the dark as well. LOL!! We'll see how it goes. I can't wait for her to get her tongue clipped!! I feel bad that it's going to hurt, but it's better for her (and me) in the long run. Soon! She has an appointment in 2 weeks to get it done. I'm nervous but I know everything will be ok. :)

My breast are so sore from the marathon feedings. Lola is cluster feeding, which means she's eating in between her usual feedings. O_O I don't know how much more of this I can take. :( It's only been 2 years since Lex and I already forgot how tough breastfeeding is.No wonder some women give up so easily, I feel like giving up sometimes. It's not easy, but it's so much better for her so I'm sticking it out. And plus, there is just something about being that close to her and being the only source of her nourishment, it's a wonderful feeling. :) She's gaining weight, happy and very healthy and it's all because of me. What more could I ask for?♥

Our baby girl is finally here!!! I cannot believe that she is almost a month old already. O_O Time flies by! She is just amazing. I'm still trying to get used to the crazy schedule we have going here, but I'm doing well. She sleeps a lot and only wakes for a diaper change or feedings. Wonderful! Breastfeeding is going amazingly well considering she's tongue tied. We work around that with a nipple shield. Last night was the first night I tried nursing her on my side laying down and it was great! I'll have to lay a towel or something underneath us because there was breastmilk all over the bed. YUCK! Kevin had to strip the bed and was everything. heheheee! He said he didn't mind though. :D What a great guy!

Lex is loving his baby sister and Raven is in Heaven! She finally got the little sister she's always wanted. I love having Raven around, she's such a big help. Seriously, I don't know what I'd do without her. There are some mornings when I just can't seem to wake up and Lex is a mad man, so I just have Raven take him outside while I nurse Lola and he runs off some energy and then he's fine. 2 year old little boys are much different than 2 year old little girls. UGH! The boy is insane!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love him though and wouldn't have him any other way.♥

Let's see........Lola is wearing size 3-6 months clothing, she was born wearing size 1 diapers and they're starting to get a little snug already o_O and she has the tiniest little hands and feet. At birth she weighed 9 pounds 11 ounces and by that Friday (she was born on a Sunday) she was back to her birth weight. Not bad at all. :) She feels light to me but I think that's because Lex is so big! LOL!! I can remember holding Lex when he was just born and thinking about when he would be 2 and how much fun he was going to he's 2 and I'm thinking abut Lo and how much fun she's going to be when she's 2! :) I might regret thinking that when she's older because I know I'm going to miss having a baby around. But no, no more kids. We're done........I think. O_O
