Three Weeks-Old!

Well, we have made it to the third week. She is growing very well! We are still struggling with the breastfeeding. That is mostly due to the fact that she takes SO long! Also we both have a case of thrush! It came to a head last night and she moaned in her sleep all night long. Poor girl! We went to the doctor today and she is up to 7 lbs. 1 oz. That is only a couple of oz. away from her birth weight. I also was given some medication to help boost my milk supply to hopefully motivate her to eat more quickly! Here are a couple of pictures that we took in the last few days! She is SO cute!

Simply amazing my cousins. I haven't been able to check here in a while due to the business of school starting and the rest of life. You have such a beautiful baby there. Here's to answered prayers!

Breastfeeding is so hard! I had a mini-breakdown when Will was three weeks old and Brent gave him his first bottle then. For some reason, it was a huge relief to me that he could take a bottle, but we continued to struggle with breastfeeding for a long time. It is really tough!
