Life wih baby

Life is great and frustrating at the same time. It is so hard to have a brand new baby. No one can ever be prepared. Everybody always talks about how if you wait until you are financially ready for a baby then you will never have one. Well I think that if you waited until you were emotionally ready for a baby then you would never have one. All we do right now is breastfeed, poop, and cry and maybe sometimes if lucky sleep. But it is the most wonderful thing I could ever do as a woman. It is amazing to look into his eyes and just see pure innocence. Overall things are going pretty good I guess. We are still fighting a bad diaper rash. Thanks for all the advice but it is still bad two prescriptions later. We have tried everything. The med we are trying now is not even working. We thought for sure that this one would work considering it is so expensive. Thank the good lord for insurance or we would have had to pay 300 dollars for this med that isn't working. I just don't know what to do. It frustrates me so bad. Anyhow that is enough for now.

My blogs are going to be few and far between apparently. I have a very hungry baby and barely even have time for a shower. Anyhow, things are going pretty good. We are very tired all the time of course. Blade had his two week doctor visit yesterday and he has already gained 5 ounces from his birth weight. Everything checked out just fine. We are struggling though with diaper rash on his bottom because he is a poop machine. So if anybody has any advice for that let me know. Well he is crying upstairs right now so I better go.

This is gonna be a quick one. Not much time on my hands these days and someone eats like a barracuda. Well Blade was born April 30 at 1349. He weighed 6.5pounds and was 19.5inches long. Oh so tiny. None of his clothes fit him. I am thinking that we might need a few premie outfits for him until he grows some. We of course are home now. The days have been very good and the nights are kind of bad but hopefully getting better. We have had a lot of help. We greatly appreciate it all. Thanks to Kara we have enjoyed not having to cook a few meals. Well like I said someone likes to eat so I have to go now. I will follow up shortly with hopefully a better blog. Just wanted to get a little info out to everyone and a pic. Thanks for everyone's help with everything!!!
