Sundays!! I love sundays it marks the beginning of my wifes "weekend", it's a nice relaxing day, and well its just fun! This morning however did not start out so fun Rae Rae was not having a good time last night through the am her stomach haas been bothering her she's had a lot of gas and it makes her very cranky. She was up about every hour to hour and a half. So I got no sleep. She didn't want to eat she was just trying to pass her gas.
I have been doing a certain massage on her to help her relieve it and it really seems to be working! She also really likes the massaging too. She is spoiled already getting massages. So the other day I was just brushing up on my photography taking some shots of Rae and she sucked her thumb for the first time! It was so cute! She did it that night again on the bath! (she loves baths by the way) how flipping exciting!
Wifey had to work ealry this morning and she got home around 11:30am and now we are just relaxing watching Law & Order: SVU. Its our favorite show to watch, we don't have cable so we just watch netflix, and hulu.
I have learned to do my makeup one handed while holding my baby girl. Its definately a longer process but she is happy and I get to feel pretty!
btw breastfeeding is going great!
She also slept the entire time I washed my brushes too!!
I hope you all have enjoyed these few quick posts I've been doing when I get the chance.
So baby girl is just over 3 weeks old!! I cannot believe it!! My wife and I were talking about how time has flown. My mom had been staying with us and helping me around the house and with Raisin (Reina's nickname). Its been great. I pump some breast milk during the day when I have time then my mom wakes up with her and feeds her at night. Tiffany needs all the sleep she can get with working full time and the baby its a lot.
But my mom has gone home and again we are on our own. Two nights ago it was a little long night she was waking up every 2 hours to eat and was super fussy. I think she is having a hard time passing her bowl movements she is still having them they just seem like she is working harder to get them. She really likes her baths and last night we gave her a warm bath and massage to help her poop easier and it worked she pooped in the bath! It was pretty gross but at least it was a bit easier for her to get it out.
I am constantly looking at her and I am just so amazed how beautiful, tiny, and how much I love her. I have really enjoyed watching my wife be a mother to our little Raisin its truly rewarding. My favorite part of this week had been when I laid her down on her play mat and turned on the spin/twirl mode on they toys above her and she focused on one and watched it go around for a good long time! Plus she's started making cute noises like oooh-ing and ahhh-ing. Well I guess I've loved everything about this week because I enjoy being able to spend this time with her. And I want to soak it up because I'm not sure how much longer I'll be able to.
So here are some pictures I've taken over the past week:
